A (nearly) magnificent throne for the shop

A (nearly) magnificent throne for the shop

04-25-2022 04:12 PM by Dave Polaschek | 10 comments »

Far superior to any other rolling shop stool I’ve bought, the DeWalt heavy duty rolling shop stool is pretty great. It supports me at a comfortable height (a few inches higher than the Craftsman stools I previously used), has a generous tray under the stool, and rolls (mostly) smoothly around the shop. The only thing that keeps it from being perfect are the wheels, which are small enough that they’ll hit a wood-chip on the floor and screech to a halt, threatening to tip me over. Larger whe...

A few bucks and a couple hours keeps you from buying a new saw

A few bucks and a couple hours keeps you from buying a new saw

12-15-2021 06:47 PM by sras | 15 comments »

The switch on my miter saw had completely failed. After I tried inspection and a good cleaning I got it to work for another few hours but then it was back to failure. Time for a new switch. There are two options for repairing your switch – you can either buy a replacement switch or a switch kit. If you choose to go with the switch only be sure you have an exact match or be prepared to have to do some work to make it fit. (UPDATE: I went back on Amazon and it does look like one could ...

Some of you may be familiar with a couple of my other dust collection contraptions using the Dust Deputy and Fein Turbo ll Dust Extractor seen below. https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/331193 https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/149634 I have been using this combination for years with great success and a while back decided to set up a little dust collection system dedicated to my out feed table/power tool workbench. Originally I was going to get the Dewalt Dust Extracto...

DeWalt 8 Inch Dado Stack

DeWalt 8 Inch Dado Stack

06-29-2021 01:50 PM by stevejack | 14 comments »

I had had it with the last 4 Retail store Dado stacks over the last year. All of them were awful. Seems the more expensive they were the worse they cut. SO I decided to pull the trigger on a Ridge Carbon Set for $400. AT that time they were out of stock. UGH! So I watched some more Youtube vids and ran across some about the the DeWalt 8 inch set for $150. Every one seems to love them. So I bought one. Finally used it yesterday. WOW It really did a great, clean, sharp job. NOT perfect b...

Dewalt DWS779 + DW726 rolling stand - quite a pair

Dewalt DWS779 + DW726 rolling stand - quite a pair

07-21-2020 07:06 PM by nickbatz | 5 comments »

Picked up a DWS779 from Home Depot before the price jumped. It’s a big upgrade over my previous sliding compound miter saw (Ryobi 10”) that makes life a whole lot easier. There was nothing wrong with the Ryobi, but I bought this one for its increased capacity. I also bit the bullet and picked up a DW726 Dewalt stand from ToolUp.com to go with it, which makes a huge difference to its usability and convenience. That wasn’t part of my original plan, but I realized right a...

DeWalt DWA3HLDFT IMPACT READY 12-in Magnetic Impact Bit Holder

DeWalt DWA3HLDFT IMPACT READY 12-in Magnetic Impact Bit Holder

02-26-2020 04:56 AM by Rich | 7 comments »

In the world of tools and accessories, bit holders are kind of ho-hum. They come with every kit we buy and most of us, including me, rarely think much about them. However… Do you ever get annoyed when the bit sticks in the head of the fastener you’re screwing in and pulls loose from the holder? Mostly with Robertson (square) drive and Torx, it’s common for the bit to get torqued into the head of the fastener and when you pull the driver back, the bit stays with the fas...

Sturdy4. Good for homeowner use5. Nice color6. Soft comfortable grip7. Trigger safety8. Long battery life so far Cons: 1. Poor wood chip ejection2. Plastic Bumper spikes that are minimal3. Large plastic cap for chain oil limiting amount of oil and causing spill over if not very careful4. Ex...

As we all know there are many good miter saws on the market and many models from any one manufacturer. I haven’t used or tested all or any of them, so I can only tell you my experience with this one and the one that it replaced. My last miter saw was a Bosch sliding miter saw with a 12” cut width and with a battery powered laser cut line and work light. I liked this saw, but it had one major weakness, which is that it required a very deep cabinet (or stand if you prefer). My sh...

took lots of abuse, then died, amazon replaced

I wish i could review multiple products in one review, but i’ll post several. I bought a dewalt dw735x off Amazon for $499, plus the stand for $141 more, both shipped with prime. I’ve never used a planer before and had a huge pile of old rough sawn pine and oak. I don’t have a jointer, so i was feeding the boards in and might have been cuped, warped, twisted, ect. I would plane one side, then the other and alternate back and forth. I installed a Wixey WR510 off am...
