    I used to use something like this with a 1 hp Delta DC. I wasn't satisfied with it mainly because it did not get much of the fine dust. I got it to capture the chips but not the fine dust. The...

    I have their framing nailer, the full head one. It works fine. I framed a staircase with it. Not a lot of use but no complaints. I also have the flooring stapler/nailer. I've put down about 800...

    I bought the 10 amp HF hammer drill a few years ago. It uses the SKS type bits. I've drilled holes with it but have used it more as a demolition hammer. It has a mode where it just hammers, does...

    David,

    Good luck. It may still work out. I often worry that when I take a car for repairs the mechanics just put on parts until it works. If some of them didn't need replaced, I will ever know....

    I did not comment on glue and nails for joints. My answer is that it depends. For a light load, like a shelf to hold shoes or handbags or sweaters, it would be plenty strong enough unless their is...

    I use a Rigid shop vac, 10 amp, pulling through a dust deputy for the smaller tools currently including the CMS. But it worked poorly with my SawStop PCS so I added a HF 2hp DC pulling through a...

    Sorry, I did not notice the questions. I've been trying to reprogram my car. Keep hitting roadblocks.

    I think it is incorrect to view a track saw as a limited usefulness tool. My circular...

    A quick google search says a Makita track saw without tracks is $356. DeWalt is about the same and I saw reports that said both will work fine on the Festool track. That seems like a better deal to...

    I finally finished a crib I've been working on for my grandson who is due in November. His mother, my daughter-in-law, wanted it to be white so I saw spraying primer and white tinted Resisthane. I...

    My Incra t rule is a precision device including the holes for the lead. It might be possible to sharpen a thicker lead to a fine enough tip but it is made for 0.5mm lead and I think it would be...

    The top of mine is a sink cutout. I got it at a home center but I haven't noticed them since. I edged it with hardwood. Formica countertops are made of high density particle board and, of course,...

    On the positive side, the craiglist bandsaw may be able to take a riser block to add 6 inches capacity for resaw. On the minus side, I think those sell new for 5-600. The new ones are likely to be...

    Nobody has said this so I will. These tools are in very different price categories. A bosch jigsaw is a very good jig saw. I just looked and you can get a more current barrel grip saw like the one...

    Not sure it's needed but I will offer my 2 cents worth. For most bits, MLCS is plenty good enough for me and are a good buy. But I was disappointed the first time I tried a cheaper dovetail bit. ...

    I have always bought tools when I needed them for a project for the family. I've loosened up some but still pretty much do that. But I really like my SawStop and wish I'd purchased a nicer table...

    I would rather buy anything at Home Depot than at Lowes. But part of that is where they are in the town I live in. Home Depot carries a formaldehyde free plywood that is pretty good. I am using it...

    I will agree with the other opinions. I've owned at least 5 table saws and all were 110V. My current main saw is a PCS with the 1.75hp motor. I've used full kerf blades in them but also sometimes...

    I bought a SawStop PCS 1.75hp saw with the 36 inch fence about a year ago and have not tripped it yet. I like it. It is heavy. I would not want to push it in and out of my shop onto the driveway. ...

    In terms of strength, the strongest is solid wood, next is plywood, next is particle board and firmly in last is MDF. I don't like painted particle board and I don't think I am unique. MDF is very...

    I've only had my PCS about a year but I don't worry about it long term. It is just a sturdy well made cabinet saw with some extra electronics. If the electronics ever fail and are unavailable,...
