I shall be posting pictures in the comming days, waaay to messy right now to show the world.
As I live in Europe, Belgium, some or probably most of the below will be unknown to the majority of the LJ’s. Even so, I figured why not write abit about my tools and my experience with them. I for one never mind reading what others have to say about tools
Table saw: Makita MLT100
- have not used it hat much so far, but after setting the blade to 90° (which is almost was to begin with) and aligning the fence (which was no so well setup) it is producing very clean cuts. The miter fence on the other hand is … less nice. It wobbles a fair amount in the miter slots.
Drill press: Contimac CH 16 N
Disk/belt sander combination: Einhell BT-US 400
Router: Bosch (green) POF 1400 ACE
Circle saw: Bosh (green) PKS 55A
- nice little saw. The dust box feature is pretty useless, barely any dust or debris go into it. If anything it seems to have an adverse effect as it acts more like a plug. The dust can’t get out that way and is thrown back into blade which then in turn throws it around. I either attach a hose to a vac ot simply nothing at all.
Belt sander: Bosh (green) PBS 7AE
Small hand drill: PSB 550 RE
- for ‘very’ light work it does it’s job. Don’t really often use it for drilling purposes but more for grinding and such
Rotary hammer: Bosh (blue) GBH 2-26 DFR
- went from the PSB 550 RE to his one … WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The small one could ge get through the thick brick walls in our house, this one nearly knockes the bricks out on the other side
Cordless drill/driver: Bosh (green) PSR 18 VE-2
- NiCd batteries are starting to show their age after a few years
Multisander: Black & Decker KA270
Small angle grinder: Black & Decker KG915
Cordless tacker: Bosh (green) PK 3,6V
- was actually cheaper than a regular model. Plenty powerfull for the limited battery capacity. The power setting knob goes from 1 to 6 but they’re pretty much all the same.
Jigsaw: TopCraft TS-750L
- cheap brand jigsaw. Blade is not stable enough to cut straight clean lines, but for freehand it’s pretty nice.
