Topic tags/keywords: dewalt miter saw mitre saw 12

My son and my wife surprised me with a new Dewalt DW715 12” Mitre Saw. Seems Lowe’s had a killer deal on it for $200. My old B&D is about 25 years old and only angles, no bevel, it still runs fine but has a lot hours on it. I’m trying to get a new 14’x28’ shop setup so hopefully it’ll have a new permanent home soon. Just wish my youngest son was still here with us, Father’s Day can be a bit rough.

No tools here, but I did get a really nice Ridgid sander for Mother’s Day.

Just wanted to send thoughts your way. We lost my brother 16 years ago, and Father’s Day is challenging for my Dad.

God bless

Thanks Sandra.

CharlesY I saw a news article on the world news Friday evening about Sears and their knock-off Chinese made Bionic wrench. I guess Sears/Kmart figures they can make a few extra bucks by having it copied off shore. I hope the guy wins his case in court.

I picked up my G0513X2 Bandsaw from Grizzly on Friday. Now I just need to get the 220 wired up.

My neighbour had a garage sale, so my wife grabbed a vintage Stanley 80, a lovely Yankee drill, a Stanley 30’s era jointer plane and a couple marking gauges. Happy Father’s Day to me!

I saw that Dewalt miter saw the other day. Thats a nice saw . And condolences to you sir.

I keep adding “value” tools to my arsenal.

I got the Central Machinery 16 speed floor drill press, the scroll saw Harbor Freight had on sale,
some hand clamps, a few aluminum rulers, some files, a magnetic base for my dial
indicator, and a 24” cutting guide to go along with the 50” I already had.

I have that saw (the 715). Runs like a champ put a high tooth count blade on there and it can handle finish-grade cuts with a few jigs.

I went to Menards with a $5 off of $50 fathers day coupon and got some heavy duty storage rack parts and put up a high wall storage system for lumber in my shop. I bought the vertical rails and the brackets. I just put small pieces of poplar on the brackets so that the wood would not be marked. It works great. Need more.

I just bought that saw at Lowes the other day for the fire department when I saw the great deal.

-- Bill M. I love my job as a firefighter, but nothing gives me the satisfaction of running my hand over a project that I have built and just finished sanding.

Well – since Fathers’ Day coincides with my kitchen project, we used the Fathers’ Day sales and got:

R4512
Hitachi 12inch miter saw
Diablo blades for both
Dust Deputy
PC 6 gal compressor
Ridgid 16 gauge finish nailer
Milwaukee M12 impact driver

Should help me to build some cabinets!

My wife and I were on the road (round trip from Lafayette, LA to Denver, CO., so I picked up a few antique hand tools:

Stanley No. 45 with one cutter.

Stanley No. 61 marking gauge with wooden thumbscrew.

102 block plane.

Disston No. 7 panel saw c. 1870.

Adjustable mouth block plane with Craftsman iron.

Wooden architect’s scale.

Stanley No. 62 24” folding rule.

Lufkin Rule Co. No. 524 Doyle Log Scale ruler (used to calculate board feet from logs).

Small squirel tail block plane.

Lakeside saw set.

Taunton’s Positive No. 7 saw set.

Pretty good haul, and the best thing is that my wife was there with me when we got all these tools. She even bought me a wood handled screwdriver because it felt good in HER hand! Life is good!
