    Harbor Freight 62365 Trencher Removing a Stump
    Unemployed Redneck Hillbilly Creations



    Published on Jul 26, 2016
    This video is about digging out a stump with my new trencher. The stump took about 3 hours to remove and was about 20 inches diameter. I am happy with the performance, but have a couple of areas that need beefing up in the future.

    Why I Did NOT Buy the Harbor Freight Trencher Backhoe
    DoingItCheap



    Published on Jan 9, 2016
    We all have our own needs and priorities when it comes to equipment. This video explains my thoughts and reasons I chose NOT to buy Harbor Freight's Trencher. I am NOT saying it is not worth buying, it just made no sense to me to buy something that is hard, if not impossible to find replacement parts. This is my opinion. Take what I share for what it is worth. If the little trencher suits your needs, that is all that is important. But, I gotta DO IT Cheap !!

    Cordless Miter Saws – Dewalt FlexVolt 12" vs Milwaukee M18 FUEL 10"
    coptool



    Published on Oct 11, 2016
    http://www.coptool.com/cordless-miter... - So what do you really gain going from 10” to 12” in capacity? Vertical Capacity against fence for trim and crown is the biggest difference; with Milwaukee at 5-3/4” vs FLEXVOLT at 6-3/4” also the 90 degree rip capacity goes from 2×12” with Milwaukee 10” to 2×14” with the FLEXVOLT 12”. If either of those 2 capacities are 100% critical for you than you may need to go with the yellow one. If this is not a critical requirement however for your cordless miter saw the Milwaukee offers some other advantages.

    DEWALT 12 Amp Handheld Blower Review - DWBL700
    WorkshopAddict



    Published on Oct 14, 2016
    Price the Dewalt 12 Amp Handheld Blower - DWBL700 on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2cGabZQ
    Dewalt Corded Blower - The Dewalt DWBL700 is a 12 amp corded blower that produces 409 CFM of air volume at 145 MPH with the standard nozzle. Yes, you plug this unit into an extension cord, it is not battery powered. Is that so bad? If you are a commercial lawn contractor, then this unit might not be for you, but for professionals on a job site or for home owners, this is a very reliable and cost effective choice. The Dewalt corded blower comes with three different tube ends, each designed for different tasks and each give this unit a different feel in use. The blower also has a cruise control so you do not have to hold the variable speed trigger in place while in use.
    DWBL700 Features

    The standard round nozzle powers 409 CFM of air volume at 145 MPH
    Flat concentrator nozzle to increase air speed to 189 MPH
    1” Round concentrator nozzle for blowing out crevices and concrete anchor holes
    Contractor-grade performance without the hassle of gas
    Designed to withstand heavy-duty professional usage with long motor life
    Backed by DEWALT’s professional quality and 3 warranty
    Long Runtime!

    For shop or job site use, this blower is fully capable of running all day. It can be set up to circulate air, dry areas or blow out holes. We look at the cord in this situation as a benefit because the user has full control of when the unit turns off.

    Beyond the runtime, this unit is very affordable and currently priced at $89.00. There is a possibility that this blower could be a tool that will last a lifetime and never need any maintenance and it will work each time it is plugged in, without hassle. Unlike gas blowers, this corded blower can be used indoors without any issues.

    The cruise control allows for the blower to also be used as a tool to dry floors or as an air mover. When the weather does not allow for our doors to be open, we will use a blower like this to help circulate air in our shop. It is a simple set it and forget it system that keeps the air in the shop fresh.

    While this blower's leaf blowing capability is restricted by the length of extension cord you have, there are few other items holding it back. We like to see companies continue to innovate with corded items!

    Specifications

    AIR VOLUME (ROUND NOZZLE) 409 CFM
    AIR SPEED (ROUND NOZZLE) 145 MPH
    AIR VOLUME (FLAT CONCENTRATOR) 288 CFM
    AIR SPEED (FLAT CONCENTRATOR) 189 MPH
    AIR VOLUME (1" ROUND CONCENTRATOR) 82 CFM

    DEWALT DHS790 FlexVolt 12" 120V Max Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw Review
    WorkshopAddict



    Published on Oct 18, 2016
    Price the DEWALT DHS790AT2 FLEXVOLT 120v MAX 12" Double Bevel Compound Sliding Miter Saw Kit on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2d9H64a

    The DEWALT DHS790AT2 FlexVolt 120V MAX double bevel compound sliding miter saw is the most innovative cordless tools introduced in 2016. We feel this way because of the miter saw's ability to use two 60 FlexVolt batteries or a power cord adapter to run off a cord. No other saw on the market allows for this use. Having the ability to use either AC or DC power makes this saw a versatile and also able to be passed on to future generations, no matter what battery technology changes. We have seen a lot of changes in tool technology and the corded versions, even ones from 40 years ago are some of the few that might still be able to be used 40 years from now.

    The DEWALT DHS790 has a powerful 120V Brushless motor provides long runtime on battery, but also a maintenance free motor when run on AC. Like all other corded DEWALT miter saws, the accuracy of this miter saw is excellent. The LED lighting over the saw blade also functions as a cut line for positioning the blade for precise cuts. Easily adjustable sliding fences support crown molding up to 7-1/2" nested and base molding up to 6-3/4" vertically against the fence. The miter detent plate with 10 positive stops miters 60° to the right and 50° to the left. This is a large miter saw compared to other battery operated models, but it still only weighs 56 lbs.

    No matter how you use this saw, via battery power or off the cord, performance is excellent.

    Dewalt Features

    Flexible - power of corded. Freedom of cordless.
    Runtime - Up to 289 Cross Cuts in 3-1/4" baseboard molding
    Powerful 120V Brushless motor provides longer runtime compared to Brushed motors
    CUTLINE blade positioning system; adjustment free cutline indicator
    120V AC adapter; corded or cordless power delivers ultimate flexibility
    Tool for a Lifetime

    There is no knocking good battery operated tools. We enjoy them every day, but at some point, batteries change and technology brings forward something new. Tools are not made for long term use like they were 50 plus years ago. Around our shop are tools that my Grandfather used to build homes. Many of those tools were purchased in the 1970's and they still work today. Will we be able to say that with our cordless tools made today? We think you can with the DEWALT DHS790 FlexVolt miter saw because of the corded adapter. Being able to plug the mister saw in allows for use after the batteries die or become outdated.

    Beyond being outdated, the batteries in the FlexVolt saw are able to be used in 20 volt tools. These batteries might be swiped from the saw when they are needed in other tools on the jobsite. The ability to change the miter saw over to corded power when needed is the ultimate option.

    In our use, we had excellent battery runtime. Our testing exceeded the results posted in the DEWALT specs. We cannot say enough great things about this saw after long term use. If you are in the market for a new miter saw, this model is one to put on the short list!

    Woodpeckers OneTIME Tool Dowel Press Review
    WorkshopAddict



    Published on Oct 19, 2016
    Sources quality dowels for woodworking can be a tricky task. Your big box store had cheap dowels but the sizes are typically not the same size as listed or consistent. The Woodpeckers’ OneTIME Tool Dowel Press is a perfect solution for the fine woodworker that is looking for the ability to make their own dowels for joinery or decorative plugs.
    Woodpekcer’s Dowel press uses a simple mechanic to literally press dowels into size. The unit uses a large aluminum handle that powers a acme threaded rod. As the rod rotates the movable head moves forward or backwards. The dowel stock is cut 1/16” larger than the desired sized dowel and placed in the movable head. The other head is placed in the self-centering guide that aligned it to the dies. These dies are sized precisely to the thousands of an inch.
    When pressing a dowel, you need to make three full presses to get your blank to the desired size. This creates an incredible finish and a perfectly sized dowl.
    The Dowel Press can make a smooth ¾” sized dowel, as well as, smooth and fluted ½”, 3/8”, and ¼” dowels.
    The Dowel Press is expensive and is quite the investment. It is geared towards the fine woodworker, and the person that wants precision dowel sizes for their projects, and any Woodpeckers fanboy.
    The Woodpeckers’ Tool Dowel Press is OneTime Tool. This means they are made to order and have a order deadline of October 31st, 2016. Once the deadline passes, the Dowel Press will be retired and never produced again. Don’t miss out and order one today!

    Harbor Freight Table Saw vs DeWalt Table Saw DW745
    John Taylor



    Published on Oct 15, 2016
    In this video I compare the Harbor Freight 10" 13 amp table saw to the DeWalt DW745 10" 15 amp job site saw. There are dozens of table saws I could have compared to the Harbor Freight saw, but I wanted to make a comparison to a saw that was several categories or levels above the HF saw so that you might compare and contrast the differences between the two categories more easily.

    Superfalls (TM) KJ11000 : Koi Pond Pump Buyers BEWARE
    Aquachigger



    Published on Oct 25, 2016
    This video details my experience buying two purported counterfeit Superfalls KJ11000 Koi pond pumps from online retailers. One was purchased from http://www.fishpondaerator.com/ and the other by an eBay seller "winnnky" http://ebay.to/2f4N909. I have since learned that winnnky appears to also be fishpondaerators.com as that second pump was shipped from that company as well.

    I have been notified by the owner of the Superfalls trademark, who is also the manufacturer of Superfalls pumps, that both pumps are counterfeits. I was also told that the ONLY legitimate seller of Superfalls pumps at this date is the website http://www.pondshop.com/ which he also owns.

    We tear into the Dewalt 60V system. Beginning with the battery. It's not wired up like any other battery. It's weird. Is 60V better than 20V? Not really, since we are really only interested in POWER. But they do have a clever way of skirting lithium ion battery shipping regulations.

    Kobalt Brushless 24volt Max Impact Driver Review
    WorkshopAddict



    Published on Oct 26, 2016
    With 50 percent more power and up to 3.6 times more runtime (compared to Kobalt 18V tools), the Kobalt 24 volt MAX lineup is quite impressive. How do you get a 24 volt battery? Kobalt added additional battery cells and reconfigured them to fit in their compact battery packs (referring to the 2 AMP HOUR). Combine the increased power and runtime with the new brushless lineup and you have a perfect combination. With testing in my woodworking shop, this lineup has quite the impact on performance. We were able to achieve the results we wanted with ease and decreased time.

    The 24 volt line from Kobalt is a platform, with many tools currently available, this is great for the consumer that invests in the 24 volt MAX platform.

    Impact Driver

    Kobalt's 24 volt MAX Brushless impact driver boasts quite the power. We have been using the impact driver in the woodworking shop for over a month and a half and we can say with confidence, this tool is under utilized in the woodworking shop. It is like a caged animal that wants to get let out. With traditional woodworking jobs and tasks, the needs for extreme power isn't there. When a job opened up on my brother-in-laws deck, it was time to let it shine. It was driving 6" spax screws like a champ!

    Don't get me wrong, this impact driver performed very well in the woodworking shop. It exceeded my needs by a longshot. With that being said, we would have no issues putting it has our main drill driver in the shop.

    We testing the 24 volt MAX impact driver utilizing the 2 amp hour and 4 amp hour batteries. Do to the extra weight, the 2 amp hour battery was more applicable to a workshop setting when compared to the 4 amp hour battery would be great for the contractor or installer that needs the extra runtime.

    Features:

    1/4" Quick-release collet
    Electronic variable speed control
    3 speed settings
    Finish Button
    Belt Clip (Reversible)
    Bit holder (Reversible)
    5-year limited warranty (Impact Driver)
    3-year limited warranty (Battery)

    Specs:

    3,500 Impacts per Minute

    1,800 Inch pounds of torque

    3 Speed Settings - 0-850, 0-2,000, 0-2,700

    Finish button - cuts power after 1 second of the impact mech kicking in

    What is the "finish button" for?

    finish-buttonWe are very excited about the finish button on Kobalt's 24 volt MAX brushless impact driver. This feature cuts power to the impact driver after 1 second of the impact mechanism. This allows the user to sneak up on the perfect depth when driving a fastener. With direct experience in the woodworking shop, this feature is wonderful for driving small to medium screws to avoid over driving and possibly breaking or stripping the fastener.

    Conclusion

    As mentioned previously, this impact driver by Kobalt could easily be our day in and day out impact driver in the woodworking shop. It easily handled the task we threw at it with much more in the gas tank. The impact driver would be a great fit for a residential contractor or installer to fully utilize its powerful capabilities.

    The 3-speed setting and Finish Button are a great option for the user to dial in the right RPMs for the task at hand.
