Home Depot HomeDepot BucketHead wet / Dry Vac

12-22-2015 03:44 AM by Jagerheister | 16 comments »

I heard about this bucket vac a few weeks ago. I needed something really portable, and didn’t want to make a huge investment. I purchased the vacuum at Homedepot for $21 plus a few more dollars for the bucket. I gave it 5 stars because it works, and it’s cheeper than dirt. My review is as follows: https://youtu.be/zyL5sQcQ2L4 If you like the video, please subscribe. Let me know if you have any questions about it, and I’ll get back with you. Thanks

Solidly performing planer

Solidly performing planer

12-21-2015 01:53 PM by BehindTheCurve | 11 comments »

......I’m too lazy to get up and take a picture just for this so I found one in which the described planer is in the background…...... After reading the reviews for the Steel City Planer I thought I’d ad my two cents, as this is a piece of equipment I’ve never once regretted buying.I’ve had the planer 2 years, have used it extensively on many different kinds of woods, and it performs very reliably. Bought it for the supposed decreased sound output as compared ...

#1 go-to tool

#1 go-to tool

12-20-2015 05:56 PM by DanielP | 4 comments »

After two years these are still my most used hand tools. I even bought a second one so that one could be angled for getting into those pesky tight corners and other uses. They are a bit spendy up front at 30/35 dollars but more than pay for themselves over time. They must be made for Woodcraft because “Swiss Made” is stamped on them and nothing else. Used with EZ-lap diamond stones they are easy to resharpen and hold edges very well.

Shockingly Inaccurate

Shockingly Inaccurate

12-20-2015 12:57 AM by LostHasher | 6 comments »

I’ve purchased some worthless tools, but nothing compares to the useless C.H. Hanson Precision Ball Level. The company’s claim… “Easier to Read Than a Bubble™.” Wrong. Let me quickly summarize: The concept is fantastic and it’s an eye-catcher, but purchase it only if you want to give your kids a toy to play with. The website shows construction guys using it for indoor and outdoor framing, including a roofer. But wait… the Ball Level is only two feet long. I would never use a two-foot level...

Best hand tool I have bought

Best hand tool I have bought

12-18-2015 05:43 PM by BigAxe | 3 comments »

Wow! This is one of the best tools I have ever bought. I flattened a 6 foot cherry board in less time than it took me to take the plane out of the box. This is the first scrub plane I have used so I don’t have much to compare it to other than my no 4 Stanley I used to use. Some of the reviews I read indicate that weight may be a problem, but it is not very heavy and when I use it I never lift the plane off my work. The mass actually works to your advantage.

Shelix Replacement Head Too Small in Diameter

Shelix Replacement Head Too Small in Diameter

12-12-2015 07:54 PM by greatview | 13 comments »

I replaced the stock head in my DW735 with a new Shelix spiral head. It seem as if the Shelix diameter is slightly less that that of the stock head. I had to remove the blades in order to pull the old head out as they were a larger diameter than that of bearing and I couldn’t remove it intact. The Shelix head goes through the bearing seat thus is smaller that the diameter of the stock head. Clearly the entry side is closer than before. In other words, I have to crank down the u...

Really People

Really People

I really don’t where to start with this review simply because I have seen other post on here mostly on the negative side because obviously people are morons and shouldn’t be near a toy drill let alone a real one.Also I made this purchase a while back and don’t recollect the exact price. But if I bought it then it had to be under 300 bills, Let me start I guess with the pro’s (please keep in mind my prior experience with a drill press’s was a dinosaur from the ...

Good Basic Moisture Meter

Good Basic Moisture Meter

12-01-2015 08:17 PM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

Some tools have flashy features or noteworthy upgrades. This is not it. This is a very basic moisture meter that is accurate. Most of the app-based moisture meters seem to have questionable (or laughable) accuracy. If you set the meter for 2 or 3, based on wood type, and insert the probes you will see the lights come on. Wait a second and you get a reading… say 6.8. Then probe the same board in a couple more spots and it will read within 0.2 of the other readings. This is more...

Great starter set into turning

Great starter set into turning

My roommate and i have had a lathe for around a year now and only had the old tools that came with it. they were not very good and we didnt use it much because its a bit much to start with. i had been reading about carbide tools for some time but the cost it what kept me away. I saw the rockler set was on sale for $100 over the US thanksgiving weekend so thought it might be worth the try. I am very impressed already! so much easier to use! Other item that people talk about is how you cant sha...
