  • Tool Recommendations by owners?

    In my experience people tend to project mostly what they like about the tools

    they buy. I guess it's just human nature to want others to think they always

    make good choices. I like to know as much information as possible good and

    bad about what I buy. As some of you already know from some of my

    previous posts I will tell you exactly what I like or dislike about tools I buy.

    Naturally the longer you use a tool the better you can give an opinion as to

    its good as well as bad features. For the members looking for information

    on woodworking tools I would like to see owner reccomendations pointing

    out all the good and all the bad. Just a thought.

    One of the biggest problems we will encounter in the manufacturer making changes. Take the Dewalt scroll saw for example. When they 1st came out it was one of the best bang for the buck scroll saws. Then changes are made and now they can be problematic. Not every saw of course but enough where you might 2nd guess buying one now. I think this may be the case with just about everything being made today.
    But still a good idea for us to keep sharing our opinions on what we are buying. Some manufactures are still putting out a quality tool.

      So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
      I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!
      In a small shop I couldn't live without the mobile base.

      Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

      Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
