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...

Large plastic cap for chain oil limiting amount of oil and causing spill over if not very careful4. Ex...

Very satisfied with this saw and it's features

Very satisfied with this saw and it's features

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...

Amazing battery life and power in lightweight Lithium Ion brushless kit

Amazing battery life and power in lightweight Lithium Ion brushless kit

05-21-2018 08:11 PM by CyberDyneSystems | 14 comments »

I picked up the DEWALT DCK277C2 20V MAX Compact Brushless Drill and Impact Combo Kit on sale at Lowe’s last week. For a little over $150.00 I got two of the latest brushless tools, a charger and two battery packs. Considering this was right next to a $99.00 driver only that was not the new Brushless, it felt like Christmas. We have been using Milwaukee’s M12 in the shop for several years now under very hard use, and have been very impressed with those kits. They are apparently ...

Generic Batteries for Dewalt DCD771 Cordless drill

Generic Batteries for Dewalt DCD771 Cordless drill

04-18-2018 07:43 PM by Blackie_ | 19 comments »

I found a set of Generic batteries that fit the Dewalt DCD771 cordless drill on Amazon. I purchased a couple of them and thus far that are worth their weight in gold. These batteries are larger (4.0ah) than the stock batteries (1.3ah) that come with the kit and work in the same charger that came with the drill kit. They are a bit larger in that they are taller and a tad bit heavier. Masione 20V 4.0Ah Max Lithium Ion Replacement Battery for Dewalt Hammer Drill DCB204 DCB207

Very pleased with the DeWalt DWS779 sliding compound miter saw

Very pleased with the DeWalt DWS779 sliding compound miter saw

03-14-2018 03:20 PM by garageking | 15 comments »

After much research including reading the many reviews online for this particular saw, I opted to buy the DeWalt DWS779 sliding compound miter saw. It came down to that or the Bosch glide model. Since the DeWalt was only 349.00 (Acme tools) I decided against the Bosch. I also made the decision that I didn’t really need the LED light guide (200.00 more for the DWS 780).I sold my old Ridgid non slider quickly on C/L. That saw had served me well but what an upgrade! I love the DeWalt s...

Dewalt 13” thickness planer review

Dewalt 13” thickness planer review

02-09-2018 01:00 AM by Gunnyb4 | 17 comments »

I’ve had this planer for 3 months and I am very satisfied. It’s a huge upgrade from my ryobi planer. I had some really rough mahogany that it planned down with no issues. The ryobi died trying to take off a 1/16” cut. I’ve put a bunch of hard wood through it as well as some cutting board projects. No chatter no sniping. I’ve planes down 3/4” strips to 1/8” thick. I put a review on YouTube you can check out the link below. https://youtu.be/pJLDbD2y7wM
