Bosch Pocket Driver Packs a Punch

Bosch Pocket Driver Packs a Punch

01-25-2008 08:50 PM by Blake | 11 comments »

I really like my new pocket driver. Bosch has reinvented the cordless driver, and it leaves nothing to be desired. The way it fits in your hand makes you feel like a cowboy. No kidding. It really makes it want to practice your quick-draw. Due to it’s Li Ion battery it only weighs 4.88 lbs but delivers 80 in.-lbs. of Torque with a variable speed trigger. The LED light is the icing on the cake. I like my heavy duty DeWalt 14v cordless drill for boring holes but sometimes I go back a...

Fantastic 110v Tablesaw

Fantastic 110v Tablesaw

01-25-2008 06:15 PM by HybridIndie | 12 comments »

I’ve had this saw for just over a year now and love it. The saw has plenty of power and is very accurate. Repeatable cuts are a breeze as long as you don’t need more that 25” of capacity. This being my only complaint about it. The saw itself is smooth with no noticeable vibration even with my 8” stacked Dado installed. I have ripped long pieces of Red Oak strips for face frames using this with a pretty generous feed rate and no noticeable bogging down in the motor. I ...

Accuracy is Art

Accuracy is Art

01-25-2008 04:14 AM by Bruce | 18 comments »

Greetings from West Virginia. I’m new here but I have been dying to tell someone about my new toy. I just got the Osborne EB3 Miter Gauge for Christmas and its great! I have a Grizzly G0576 left tilt table saw and the stock miter gauge was ok for rough cuts but it just was not accurate enough in my judgement. Even though I adjusted the guide bar, it still would move slightly in the slot. The angles were difficult to set and I had to look for my protractor to double and triple check...

Craftsman Professional 10" Hybrid Table Saw

Craftsman Professional 10" Hybrid Table Saw

01-25-2008 03:14 AM by Tony Z | 4 comments »

I’ve had this saw for almost a year now and I love it. I got a great deal on it also. It retails for about $1100 but it went on sale for $1000 and then Sears had a deal for 20% off that and then combined that with no interest for a year. I couldn’t pass it up. I ended up getting it for $800! The saw comes with a Biesemeyer fence which is one of the best features. When I first used the saw with this fence, I could have cried. The Biesemeyer fence works like butter. I don’t k...

Magswitch Featherboard - A dream to use

Magswitch Featherboard - A dream to use

01-25-2008 01:26 AM by Grumpy | 13 comments »

I had been eyeing off the Magswitch featherboard in magazines for some time and thought what a great invention it was. I don’t really understand how you can turn a magnet on and off , other than an electro magnet, simply by turning a knob but you can with the Magswitch. If anybody knows how it is done I would like to hear about it.I purchased the 30mm Magswitch Pro2 this week. It consists of two powerful earth magnets associated with a featherboard in a type of durable plastic molding. An opt...

Hitachi M12V, 3 ¼ Hp, Plunge Router

Hitachi M12V, 3 ¼ Hp, Plunge Router

01-25-2008 12:32 AM by Ray | 9 comments »

I have two of these routers!I mounted on in my router table and use the other one for manual jobs. Having a 3 ¼ Hp, 15 AMP motor, the Hitachi M12V is can handle virtually any routing job or bit design. The motor features an infinitely adjustable electronic speed control dial and soft start to make it manageable for hand use. The 8,000 to 20,000 rpm range (no load) dial is divided by 1 through 5 numerals (no detents) on the dial. The On/Off switch is located off the right-side handle and...

Fein Review of the Multimaster

Fein Review of the Multimaster

01-24-2008 10:32 PM by jude | 10 comments »

I pretty much fell in love with the Fein Multimaster within the first 5 seconds of the store demo. Fein has a demo stand set up at the ToolKing Superstore (and probably other places where it is sold) and I tried it out cutting grout. It removed the grout easily and quickly and with no strain on my part. As someone who has used a hand grout scraper to scrape out the group in a bathroom, this tool was like a dog door to a 9-5er. The Fein Multimaster will save you time because it does all th...

Veritas Large Shoulder Plane

Veritas Large Shoulder Plane

01-24-2008 02:16 AM by TheGravedigger | 13 comments »

Every now and then you stumble upon a tool that makes you wonder how you ever got by without it. For me, that was the shoulder plane. My present workbench base project was going to require 28 large mortise and tenon joints, and practice joints showed me that fitting was going to be difficult. I had tried a combination of block plane and chisel to clean up the tenon cheeks and shoulders, but the intersection of the shoulder and cheek kept causing me problems. The shoulder plane seemed like the...

An Essential Read

An Essential Read

01-23-2008 08:48 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 9 comments »

**This review was pulled from a previous blog post on The Wood Whisperer Many of you may already know Chris Schwarz. He is an editor for Popular Woodworking Magazine and a self-confessed hand-tool and workbench enthusiast. His most recent work is a book called Workbenches, truly a modest title for what is contained within those 144 pages. Perhaps it was just great timing, since I am currently focusing on my hand tool skills, but this book really struck a chord with me. In fact, since my tw...
