ARE CHEAP WELDING HELMETS SAFE? | Auto-darkening speed
AvE


Published on Jan 12, 2018
The cheap auto-darkening available everywhere; amazon, aliexpress, ebay are, according to this test with a sample size of 1, OK. There is very little difference in speed. But there are two MAJOR concerns. No ANSI certification and they are VERY dark when not triggered. In future tests I'll see how temperature affects different models and I'll test Harbor Freight's Vulcan and 3M Speedglas. Early Access to vids here http://www.Patreon.com/AvE

Harbor Freight Sale: This might be the best sale of the year (2018)
Red Beard


Published on Jan 12, 2018
Harbor Freight Sale: This might be the best sale of the year (2018) - Having tracked HF sales numbers for years now I can tell you that most of the items in this upcoming three day sale are going to be at HF's lowest offer price.

Not all HF sales are equal. Often HF sets three to four price levels for each of their items. Reserving the lowest price tier for sales that only happen two or three times a year. This sale has more bottom tier prices then I have seen in an HF sale for a long time.

Add to that the fact that they are clearing out all of the return products from Christmas and doing so on a sliding scale. (The discount increases every day of the sale). And I can confidently tell you that this is one sale you do NOT want to miss out on.

RIDGID Table Saw R45171 vs RIDGID R4516
John Taylor


Published on Jan 20, 2018
In this video we are going to take a close look, a comparison between the RIDGID R4516 and the R45171. And I want to point out that the R45171 is nearly identical to the R4517 with one exception. The R45171 has a Soft Start Motor while the R4517 does not. Soft Start reduces the torque and the load temporarily during the startup process. It applies a gradually increasing voltage to the motor resulting in smooth acceleration as well as reducing the mechanical stress on the shaft and motor. As of this recording the R45171 has yet to be on the market. However, it will be released soon. The R4516 that has the wheels and handle will eventually be phased out and replaced by the R45171. So, if you prefer having the portability of the wheels as opposed to the stand you may want to pick up the R4516 before they are gone.
I am producing two other videos on the R45171. The first is a full detailed review and the other will be on how to set up a new R45171 including assembling the stand. I will post links to both of these videos in the description once they have been completed and uploaded.

RIDGID Table Saw R45171 A First Look
John Taylor


Published on Jan 20, 2018
The day I recorded this video the RIDGID R45171 was not on the market in the U.S. However, I was able to get my hands on one to do a review for you. This is kinda a duel review in that the R45171 is nearly identical to the R4517 except the R45171 has a Soft Start Motor. What is a Soft Start Motor you might ask? Soft Start reduces the torque and the load temporarily during the startup process. It applies a gradually increasing voltage to the motor resulting in smooth acceleration as well as reducing the mechanical stress on the shaft and motor. I will be producing a video on how to set up a R45171 and posting it very soon. So, keep an eye out for it. If you liked this video, please press like and share with your friends.

So I got the set and all the tools look great except the stapler and the storage bag. They are both is pretty light and cheap but the rest are solid tools. I found a really good bag with a solid bottom at Menards for $10 I will pick up. I really like the compact drill driver. All in all a hell of a deal!

Table Saw Buyers Guide
John Taylor


Published on Feb 4, 2018
There's about a dozen different table saw manufacturers on the market today, many of whom have more than one offering which occasional change and, of course, sale prices come and go. So, reviewing all of them is not really practical. Also, different types of projects require different types of table saws. Someone who is making picture frames and small decorative furniture pieces doesn't need a heavy duty job site saw. And neither does the tradesman building barns on-site need a saw with a rip capacity of only 12 inches. At the same time some folks may prefer a particular manufacturer over others because of their experiences. For these reasons I am going to approach this video from a functional standpoint as opposed to a product standpoint. In other words helping you to realize the table saw features that suit you and your projects best so that you know what to look for when you go to get one. We are going to be looking at things like rip capacity, cutting depth, fence control mechanisms, miter gauges, stands, dust control, and more. And, I am going to be using a number clips from previous table saws reviews as examples. Be sure to check out my other power tool videos: Table Saws Reviews - http://bit.ly/2hNO5HI Miter Saw Reviews - http://bit.ly/2vTNCKz Drill Press Reviews - http://bit.ly/2vJ39MC Cordless Drills Review - http://bit.ly/2vgKJ6B B&D Workmate - http://bit.ly/2wynQZb

Best Dust Extractors - Head-2-Head Testing
A Concord Carpenter / ToolBoxBuzz
Published on Feb 17, 2018

http://www.toolboxbuzz.com/?p=17525&p...

In our latest Head-to-Head tool testing we evaluated eight of the industries top Dust Collectors in the 8 to 12 gallon capacity size. The lineup includes dust extractors from: Bosch, DEWALT, Fein, Festool, Hilti, Makita, Metabo and Milwaukee. Read on to find out who makes the Best Dust Extractors!

Dust Extractor Lineup

The eight dust extractors used in this Head-to-Head evaluation are listed below. A link to each is included with specific manufacturer specifications.

Bosch VAC090A 9 Gallon Dust Extractor with Automatic Filter Clean
DEWALT DWV012 10 Gallon Wet/Dry HEPA/RRP Dust Extractor
Fein 69908195402, Fein Turbo II X AC 9.3 Gallon Wet/Dry Dust Extractor
Festool 584014 9.5 Gallon Dust Extractor CT 36 E AC
Hilti VC 150-10 XE 10 Gallon Universal Wet & Dry Vacuum Cleaner with Automatic Filter Cleaning
Makita VC4710 12 Gallon Xtract Vac® Wet/Dry Dust Extractor/Vacuum
Metabo ASR 35 ACP HEPA (US602057800) 9 Gallon All-purpose Vacuum Cleaner
Milwaukee 8960-20 8 Gallon Dust Extractor
Dust Extractor Testing / Evaluation

For the Dust Extractor Head-to-Head we evaluated the tools in the following categories:

Air Volume (CFM) Test – Tests the Air Flow volume of the unit in Cubic Feet per Minute. This test was conducted twice, once with a clean set of filters/fleece bag and once with the dirty filters/fleece bag.

Suction (Water Column) Test – This provides a relative measure of the motors suction power. We also tested suction with a meter to compare the results to the water column test. This test was conducted twice, once with a clean set of filters/fleece bag and once with the dirty filters/fleece bag.

Airwatts – Calculated standard measurement used in the vacuum industry. Best indicator of the overall relative power and efficiency of the units because it takes into consideration both the water column and the CFM factors.

Airwatts was calculated for both the clean and dirty filters/fleece bag.

Noise – Decibel measurements including the average and maximum value under high load.

Cost – Current costs available online.

Ergonomics and Features – We ranked each vacuum in categories including: Canister handles, wheels, locking caster feature, accessory attachment, hose attachment to vac, ease of controls, auto-clean switch, power broker switch, maneuverability, hose storage, cord storage, cord length, hose features, ease of filter change, mess changing filters without fleece bag, compactness, and weight.

All of these tests and evaluations were performed by our Tool Box Buzz Team of contractors. Each of the guys on the team is a contractor, a PRO, a guy that actually uses tools every day to make a living. We know you have lots of places to get this sort of evaluation of tools, but we think ours are the best based on our vast construction experience.

Zila's thoughts on and experience with EVERLAST I mig 275p and others
ZILA


Published on Feb 17, 2018
My grandfather always told me: don't talk about something you have no clue about .....
so I am NOT talking about Everlast customer service - since I NEVER had any interaction with them personally I don't know if they are good or bad or ??? so I won't talk about that
I won't talk about all their models - since I have owned only 2 models of theirs and welded with 3 or 4 others (that customers and friends own and let me use briefly(!) so there is no long term experience with those either).
I have not owned one of their machines long enough to see how it holds up.... so I cant talk about that either

However what I will talk about is - how I think that it welds. I will also talk about the user interface - how easy or difficult is it to set it up right and dial it in right?
And over all impressions based on the factors that I was able to test and make statements about.
