My go-to HF Freebie. Keep a look out for no-purchase freebie coupons.

12-14-2014 04:03 AM by paxorion | 5 comments »

The Harbor Freight item numbers 69111 and 69052, is a mini LED flashlight that is my go-to HF freebie. This is also one of the products that continues to pop up as a no-purchase freebie. I keep them all over my car and house because I pick one up with a no-purchase coupon almost every time I am at HF and don’t buy anything. From a performance standpoint, the LEDs are bright, and it will do the job. Since I have them scattered (at least 2) in every room of my house, I never have to...

Almost perfect HF No Purchase Freebie worth stashing everywhere!  I keep pairs of them everywhere.

The Harbor Freight item numbers 60566, 67227, 69567 is a 27 LED light that pops up as a no-purchase freebie every now and then. I’ve amassed a very disturbing collection of them, with at least 4 spread out in my family cars, and a slew of them all over the house. The LEDs are bright, and the magnet and hook have come in handy when I use them for what they are intended for. What can someone complain about on a 100% freebie (remember, no-purchase!)? Well my secondary use for these f...

Howdy, I had an awesome morning. Yep I got up early. Fixed this here PC and waited for a reply to my text. I got it around 8.30 AM. I was on the road by 8.45 and heading up North to a town called Sherman Texas. I had been looking forward to this little trip for a month. I had a little extra driving to do after I hit Sherman but oh what a drive. I made this drive to buy some live edge siding – but not for siding. I’m going to build my daughter’s bed f...

Did my one-time job and thankfully replacement parts are available to keep it ticking afterwards

Did my one-time job and thankfully replacement parts are available to keep it ticking afterwards

I bought this electric planer with a 25% coupon off over a year ago to serve as a one-time beater tool for the wing chun dummy my buddy and I made. I decided on this plane over the other models, like the 91062 power planer that was recently reviewed, based on overall better reviews on the HF website, and a personal impression of better feeling on the controls when I was playing with it in-store, and the ability to easily connect a 1-1/4” shop-vac hose. The planer was used for very ro...

I suppose as an actual review, I would say that for the price, it fit my needs. Also, I used a 25% discount coupon to get it. So, really good at the price I paid. Video of the product.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igWpQ9eHs88

Great apron for the price

Great apron for the price

12-12-2014 02:25 PM by BinghamtonEd | 4 comments »

I’ve been using this apron for about 3 months now, and for full disclosure, it is the first apron I’ve owned. I tried on a few others, but none of the other ones I tried fit well around my shoulders/neck. This apron looks to be similar to the 83200, which may have been discontinued in favor of this model. My initial reaction when I took it out of the box was that it seemed durable and well made. I had read other reviews that the material was thin, but I didn’t find thi...

Great Drill Press at a Great Price

Great Drill Press at a Great Price

12-12-2014 12:33 PM by NickyP | 2 comments »

I saved my pennies waiting for the annual 15% off Black Friday sale and bought this JET drill press from CPO Outlets through Amazon for $518.49. It was delivered to my house 10 days later: After opening the box I quickly discovered there were not allot of parts that needed to be assembled: I bought a mobile base about 2 months ago from Rockler on sale for $34.99 free shipping: As I went through the assembly process I would degrease and wax were needed: ...

Shop Fox W1819 Table Saw Review

Shop Fox W1819 Table Saw Review

12-12-2014 04:41 AM by Hawk_Guy | 9 comments »

I received my order neatly packaged in 3 boxes contained on a single pallet. I paid about $1500 which included lift gate delivery and an 8” dado blade set “valued at $150”. Nothing was damaged and all parts and hardware were accounted for. Saw took about 5 hours to assemble and align with no helpers. First thing that surprised me was the color which I don’t think is accurately depicted in any online literature. It has an almond color that can only be described a...

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

12-11-2014 07:26 AM by chrisworker | 11 comments »

For the longest time I would use my PSI DC1B-XL for my dust collection needs, but since I upgraded my jointer from a 6” to an 8” and my planer from my lunchbox to a new 3hp spiral cutter I have been buying my lumber in the rough from a local dealer. When I started to get my lumber this way I quickly realized I needed a bigger dust collector. I have read numerous reviews from this webpage and others about the HF 2hp dust collector so I grabbed my coupon and off I went to get my b...

Woodwork Visualized by Ross Cramlet - vintage book review

Woodwork Visualized by Ross Cramlet - vintage book review

12-10-2014 06:18 AM by Rick M. | 2 comments »

Woodwork Visualized by Ross Cramlet is a book of illustrations detailing everything you should have, could have, or did, learn about woodworking in your high school industrial arts program. [TLDR version: fledgling woodworkers should get a copy of this book or read it online for free.] Ever wanted to predict which way a stick of lumber will warp? Curious why heartwood is more stable than sapwood? Cramlet crams much useful information about how trees grow, why and how lumber warps, how t...
