Powerful 18 Volt Cordless Drill/Driver with Lifetime Warranty!

Powerful 18 Volt Cordless Drill/Driver with Lifetime Warranty!

02-29-2008 07:49 AM by Hawgnutz | 16 comments »

Right now, February, 2008, Ridgid is phasing out its line of NiCad batery tools and phasing in their new Lithium Ion line. So they are making their tools capable of accepting either style batterys! But that will not make a big difference because they offer a lifetime service for the tool and the batterys that power them! After replacing my Craftsman batterys just last year and having them going south now, I decided top grab a Ridgid tool set while Home Depot has them on clearance sale. I ...

Turns All Your Nail Guns Almost Cordless

Turns All Your Nail Guns Almost Cordless

02-29-2008 07:27 AM by Thuan | 11 comments »

I realized that my air compressor was too big and noisy for the little amount of time I use it, so I traded it in for a new systems that works very well for the the little work shops. Lowes’ came up up with this neat CO2 regulator that powers most pneumatic nailers. This unit with the 20 oz CO2 canister can shoot 600 16 gauge brads or 1200 pins. This is the same system that paint ball guns use, so refills and extra tanks are readily available. The kit cost around $100 at Lowe’s an...

Great Cordless Circular Saw!

Great Cordless Circular Saw!

02-29-2008 07:26 AM by Hawgnutz | 3 comments »

When my whimpy Craftsman cordless circular saw finally gave up the ghost, I replced it with this one by Dewalt. So far it has been a fantastic buy. The XRP battery quikly takes a full charge in under an hour and gives you about 6 or 8 hours of steady cutting. I first used this in framing a loafing shed for our horses and it performed flawlesy, cutting treated 4×4s, plywood, and treated and untreated 2×4s. It comes with a case that has a mounting post complete with a clip for rep...

Pretty Little Plane, but Mixed Results in Using It

Pretty Little Plane, but Mixed Results in Using It

02-29-2008 06:31 AM by Eric | 2 comments »

I found this little plane in a random hardware store just outside of Kuala Lumpur. It only cost about US$9, so why not? The plane is made by Mujingfang, a Hong Kong-based company that makes a number of wooden hand planes. The reviews I found from googling Mujingfang reveals that the planes are general of quite good quality, and most (if not all) are very reasonably priced. Despite the apparent high quality, it’s clear that these are mass-produced budget planes since, from their website,...

Shopsmith Thickness Planer

Shopsmith Thickness Planer

02-29-2008 01:12 AM by bkhop | 12 comments »

Here’s my review of the Shopsmith thickness planer. I’ve had mine for about 2 years now and it is a great planer. It replaced a Delta TP305. Let’s start out with the specs – 12” x 4” capacity; 28” long bed; for HP, read #1 below. 1. The Shopsmith Thickness planer comes in two variations that are basically identical except that one is mounted on the Shopsmith Mark V and the other is a “free-standing” tool with its own stand and motor;...

BeadLOCK system

BeadLOCK system

02-29-2008 12:51 AM by jerry118 | 8 comments »

The tool itself consists of a drill guide which produces overlaping holes in the parts to be joined. The set that I used is by the origonal manufacturer. I believe the system is now owned by Rockler, so some of the comments that I make may no longer be valid.The chief problem I encountered was the fact that with the knobs used for tightening the guide in the origonal or secondary position are too small to adequately tighten by hand. If the secondary position is not adequately torqued, the gui...

Steel City 14" Bandsaw

Steel City 14" Bandsaw

02-29-2008 12:38 AM by closetguy | 8 comments »

I bought this saw from Redmond & Son in Atlanta. I wanted to upgrade from my ¾ HP Jet and after looking at the features, I was sold. The price was $699 and I added the Kreg fence for another $100. They forklifted it into my truck, but it was fairly easy to unload by myself. The saw comes in two boxes. The first thing I did was open the manual with the intention of spending the next hour deciphering the instructions, because I have a lot of power tools and “been there, done that” wi...

02-29-2008 12:17 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 3 comments »

Over the years I’ve gone through many low end mediocre battery powered drills. I think this set is going to last me a long time. When you put one of these in your hand, you can tell, just by the feel, that you’re holding a quality tool. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Hammer Drill Features: Variable speed Dewalt built high-torque motor delivers 500 in-lbs. of maximum torque, 2,000 rpm & 34,000 Beats/Minute. I’ve used this drill...
