  • Tools-Ryobi,Sears& Grizzly

    Has anybody have seen and or heard reviews for the Ryobi planer for $200.00 and the new Sears bandsaw for $ 300.00, and the Grizzly surface sander.
    I wonder if any of these are worth purchasing. The pricing seems reasonable but.. Any comments would be appreciated. Bob

    Craftsman Bandsaw

    I haven't seen the new Sears bandsaw yet; however, if it's as good as the one I have it's a great saw for the money. I bought a 12 inch Craftsman bandsaw back in 1980 in Philadelphia and used it for years. It was stored in my garage for about eight years until I moved it down to my shop a couple of weeks ago. It still looks and runs like new. As I remember I paid about $300.00 for the saw and stand back then so if the new saw is comparable to to the old model I would say it's worth the money. This is just based on my experience and not an endorsement..... but I do love the saw!!!!
    If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

      Sorry, I havent really heard anything about each spacific tool you mentioned.As for ryobi in general, its a 50/50 for me, I have a ryobi scrollsaw I didnt care for, and I have their oscillating spindle sander that I reall like. For sears,I have their router table which is ok, two craftsman routers ,one of which needed service twice, and I have two of their older contractor tablesaws,one I like, and the other I dont care for.I have heard great comments on their mitersaws, however I havent ever used that. So for craftsman, Im batting about .500. Grizzly, I have a grizzly jointer, which I love, and two grizzly wood lathes which I like really well as well. So Id give grizzly the thumbs up for sure.

      (My planer is a Ridgid, I like very well,my bandsaw a Jet,I like it as well, and my Performax I simply Love! )

        Ryobi planer

        I have had a Ryobi planer for about 15 years and it has served me well. It is a smaller 10" model, but works great on a variety of material. I know some people don't like Ryobi tools, but this one has been worth it for me.

          Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

          Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

          Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
