has anyone tried or is using products by wolfcraft? I have there doweling jig and today i purchased a pockethole jig from wolfcraft as well. I like the doweling jig thought it was cumbersome at first but I’m ok with it now. They have a couple of router tables i was looking at them today at menards any feedback on the router tables?

Also menards has 7” clamps half off and got 3” spring clamps dollar off. The 7” clamps were 7.95 and the 3” spring clamps ended up 1.99.

My wife hates when i go there i end up with more stuff.

She’d crap a brick if i came home with that 750.00 Delta table saw i looked at too.

In reading the posts here you people are right about cheap table saws. The cheaper brands were right next to the delta and the first thing i found was the play in the miter slots. The delta contractors saw had none.

I have not tried Wolfcraft products, sounds like they are working for you though.

I wish Menards would open where I live. They would put Lowes/Depot out of business.

Not necessarily. I have 6 Menard’s within 30 minutes of my house and they are good for some stuff, great for a few things but both The Depot and Lowe’s have no problem competing with them. Up until recently Menard’s was a last ditch effort kind of thing but lately they have been getting much better, just depends on which one I go to.

I have a wolfcraft mobile base for my miter saw. I am happy with it, have not used any other for comparison though.

I have a number of Wolfcraft products and by an large have been very pleased with them. Most of their stuff seems to be well made and pretty heavy duty.

I’m almost sorry to say this but what I say is my sincere opinion. I have purchased some wolfcraft products at Menards because they were so cheap. Without exception, I have been disappointed. I recall the old phrase, “You get what you pay for”.

The most positive thing I can say is that their products seem to be a little bit better than the toolshed products Menards also carries.
