Boys and Girls, Abandoning my Fe$tool fetish, I decided to stick with green and spruik the latest addition to my Ryobi collection. This is something that will never replace a decent compressor or even an indecent small(ish) one, however, if you did not think you needed a large one and your anticipated requirement could not justify one… and if you are space constrained, this may be a compromising option. Because of it’s small tank capacity (3.7L… or 1 gal in crazy measure...

Winning the Soldering War

Winning the Soldering War

02-03-2021 11:35 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 71 comments »

Boy and Girls, I wrote a review about the Ryobi Soldering Iron less than 12 months ago. Contrary to my religious beliefs, I performed a mortal sin by breaking one of my commandments. I actually considered cost into the equation when deciding on purchasing the Iron. I will defend my insanity on the grounds that I seldom solder (or is it seldom sober) and did not consider I would need the added features of the Station compared to the Iron… actually I can’t remember if the Station was ava...

Another Bright shop equipment…

Another Bright shop equipment…

Boys and Girls, There have been a number of illuminating reviews made recently and I thought I’d shed some light on this workshop addition. Many of us possess some bargain basement cordless 18V Ryobi tools and if they are in anyway operational, you will have at least one battery and if you are not a total penny pincher, may even own a few extra ones,(just don’t leave on the charger… they charge and then run down). If you happen to own a 18V Ryobi battery, read on… If you ...

Soldering On

Soldering On

Boy and Girls, If you don’t wield a Ryobi 18V tool in your workshop read no further as this is only a skin and is totally of bugger all use without a battery. This is my “Christmas tree” populated for the photo shoot. My soldering prowess sucks nearly as much as my welding… and my welding ability is only second to my number of sober days. Needless to say, I quickly discovered that welding electrical wire was not an easy task, even with a deftly manipulated MIG welder. I didn’t ow...

Lightweight, Compact Saw

Lightweight, Compact Saw

05-06-2018 01:01 PM by SirFatty | 4 comments »

I wanted a miter saw for trim work, flooring and woodworking projects, but I didn’t want to get a 10” for a few reasons. First is the size, I don’t have the space for one. Second is the weight and third is the cost. I was able to get this saw at Home Depot for $130 and for the small size it will be able to cut nearly anything I will need it for: Maximum crosscut dimensions: 90° – 1-1/2 in. x 10 in.; 45° – 1-1/2 in. x 6 in.Sliding head provides maximum cap...

A Good Saw, I'd Say!

A Good Saw, I'd Say!

My old benchtop table saw bit the dust not so long ago, so I started researching for a replacement. This saw not only met those requirements but gave me two bunuses. I wanted a saw that was not too much more than my last one and I wanted a greater cutting width and some kind of on-board outfeed support. This one gave me everything. For that matter, the T-slots match the ones on my old saw which was not the same brand, so I was able to use my cross-cut sled from the start! The Good: The ...

Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt 7-1/4 in. Miter Saw

Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt 7-1/4 in. Miter Saw

04-26-2017 11:02 PM by a1Jim | 10 comments »

Yes I know RYOBI. The last Ryobi product I bought was 20+ years ago and have always thought of them as homeowner specials and not something a contractor of 30 years would use that has always tried to work with “Big Boy” tools.So why did I try this out? I needed a lightweight miter saw to cut some trim in a remodel I’m working on and I didn’t want to keep dragging around my Bosch 12” sliding miter saw nor did I want to keep traveling back and forth to the Bosch ei...

Ryobi BG828G 8" Bench Grinder

Ryobi BG828G 8" Bench Grinder

12-08-2014 12:17 AM by Homunculus | 2 comments »

As with all Ryobi products, you pretty much have to start the review with “good tool, for the money.” 3 amp motor which was plenty strong for sharpening chisels, lathe tools etc. No slowdown whatsoever, which I was worried about since I’m used to using my dad’s 6 amp Delta grinder. That said, long windup, takes maybe 30 seconds to get to full speed? Slower than a 6 amp, but that’s about all I noticed when it comes to the less powerful motor. That said, if you ...

Ryobi 18-Volt One+ Lithium-Ion- Drill Driver and Circular Saw Kit +charger

08-14-2014 12:54 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 19 comments »

Since home depot doesn’t like publishing a negative reviews that points out the obvious, I might as well review it here.So what we have here is a definite value. Drill with clutch, 5 1/2 inch saw not one but two entry level +1 lithium ion 18v batteries and a charger and all for just 79.00You can’t beat that.Batteries (although entry level) and charger alone cost more than that individually. The drill is nice with 24 position clutch setting and runs true no wobble like the yellow D drills.An...

Best used Tool I ever purchased

Best used Tool I ever purchased

I got this Ryobi 1300 Planer 3 years ago…I took a shot at it for $100 used, but actually almost new…the owner passed away just after buying it, and his wife sold it to me, I would have given her more, but that’s all she wanted. I have the box, receipt, EVERYTHING!I’ve had a Delta, and and an ole General…I gotta give this Ryobi the props though…and it is the ONLY Ryobi tool I own…I am not a big fan, but this older 1300 is a great design. The lock is...
