Getting The Most Out Of Your Power Tools - Making Them Last Longer'
John Taylor


Published on Jul 15, 2017
Over the past few months I've received a number of questions and participated in several discussions related to the quality of modern power tools and how to make them last longer... your table saw, miter saw, drill press, circular saw.

There are a number of factors that contribute to the life span of your power tools and we will look at several of them in this video. There are some factors that are out of our control like the quality of the materials used in manufacturing, the accuracy of assembly and alignments, handling of shipments, exposure to moister, and of course we can't forget luck. These we can't control. But, there are others we can control which we'll look at in this video. How to get the most out of your power tools series:

EVOLUTION FURY 1-B STEEL, WOOD CUTTING SAW
Made in Poland


Published on Jul 24, 2017
Hi. My name is Darek and in this video I'll show you review and test EVOLUTION FURY 1-B. THIS IS NOT A PAID ADVERTISEMENT Evolution sent me this saw to test it and expressed my opinion.

When I removed the saw from the box, it seemed to me much bigger than the saw that I had and i was not wrong, the saw is really big, has a large aluminum base, making it stable, and big handles make it easy to work even at an unusual position.

Thanks to the 185mm multi-purpose disc, we can cut almost anything we have in the workshop. Although I tried to cut only wood, steel and aluminum, but we can also cut copper, brass, plastic, plexiglasy , etc.

Several times I happened to cut old unnecessary boards with my old saw and they had nails, unfortunately the disc had to be given to the uncle to sharpen, but with this saw isn't that problem. As you can see, the board even with a great deal of nails and trimmings cut off easily.

Cutting steel with this tool is really easy. There is no spark, high and dangerous rotation, only quick and easy cutting.

In my opinion, the saw is a very good solution for DIYers.

Thank to Evolution for sending the saw and giving us the opportunity to express our opinion.

DEWALT DCS570 20V 7-1/4" Circular Saw with Blade Brake Review
WorkshopAddict


Published on Jun 21, 2017
Price the DEWALT DCS570 20V 7-1/4" Circular Saw on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2sxdAAM
FlexVolt's Little Bro - Dewalt added a new brushless 7-1/4″ circular saw to the 20 volt max lineup as part of a growing brushless tool selection. Dewalt's first brushless circular saw was the 60v Flexvolt the only runs on the new 60V batteries that can also be used on the 20V line. The new DCS570 is directly meant to allow Dewalt 20 volt users to have a more powerful and up to date choice in circular saws. This saw includes a lot of features found in the FlexVolt saw, including an included blade brake.

It is nice to see Dewalt expand 20 volt line with a new brushless circular saw as it provides a bit of insight to current 20 volt users. The FlexVolt battery made the water a bit muddy as to where Dewalt was going to place research and development dollars. The outlook has been that Dewalt was going to place the premium products in the FlexVolt line and push high end users into the new platform. The new 20 volt circular saw has a 2-9/16″ cutting capacity at 90 degrees that can cut 3 by lumber in a single pass. Electric blade brakes are included on many pro model saws and it is nice to see it on the new 20 volt. Similar to the FlexVolt, the shoe on the new 20 volt is made out of aluminum.

FlexVolt Similar

Let's really cut to the chase, the new 20 volt circular saw is almost identical to the FlexVolt circular saw (DCS575). About the only difference in appearance is the color of the blade guard. Both Dewalt saws have a high grade aluminum shoe, or base plate. Internally, the motor is different and the saw runs at a slightly lower RPM of 5500 vs the FlexVolt at 5800 RPM. There is a pretty fair difference in the performance and speed of cut side. While the 20 volt is no slouch, it will not rip through 3 sheets of OSB at the same speed as the FlexVolt.

If you are using these saws all day long, in bare tool form, they weigh in at about the same weight, 7.5 lbs. But add in the weight of a Flexvolt battery and the 20 volt will win as a lighter tool at the scales all day long.

DCS570 Features

7-1/4″ blade
2-9/16″ max cutting capacity at 90°
5,500 RPM max
57° bevel with stops at 45° and 22.5°
Rubber overmold on handle
Blade brake
High grade aluminum base plate
Weighs 7.5 lbs
POWER

So the question everyone want to know, does the FlexVolt look alike saw have the same power? Well, we are sorry to say, but the answer is "No". That is not to say that is does not have the power to keep everyone on the jobsite happy. It will rip and cross cut two by lumber without issue. The place where it lacks is when stacking multiple pieces of OSB and making cuts. Stacking three 3/4" sheets can take the saw down to a crawl or worse.

If someone is looking for one the most powerful saws on the market, they should look to the FlexVolt in Dewalt's offerings. We did run the FlexVolt battery in this saw and found an increase in runtime, but not an increase in power. We are getting spoiled with some super-powerful saws coming out and our expectations might be a bit high. This upgrade makes the older brushed Dewalt saw look really slow. If you are planted in the 20 volt max line, this is a good buy.
I have two of these saws and love them. I got the saw, a battery and a bag for 199.99 shipped to the door at a CPO tool sale. I haven't picked up one of my other battery saws since and would seriously recommend that everyone try one. Dewalt has a 90 day no questions asked return policy so try and then decide to buy or return.

Makita 18v LXT Brushless Compact Router Review | XTR01Z
WorkshopAddict


Published on Aug 27, 2017
Price the Makita XTR01Z Compact Router on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2w8qUvl
Compact/Trim Routers - In our opinion, compact routers or trim routers are an essential part of the woodworking shop. We use them for a variety of tasks from light to medium duty material removal. They are typically used for edge work that can consist of flush trimming laminate, flush trimming edge banding, edge profile (round-overs, chamfers, decorate edge profiles), and solid edge banding joinery. We take it a step further in our woodworking shop. We use trim routers for nearly 90 percent of our routing needs. We find us using a traditionally sized router for larger joinery tasks and that is a rare occurrence as we tend to pick the table saw or router table for those tasks.

Compact/Trim routers really shine is the fine detailed work. Inlays and hinge mortise work are their bread and butter. Why would you want to use a large, bulky, heavy router to do a task that needs precision? You don't! A trim router provides a nice small package that can complete the tasks without the extra bulk and horsepower that isn't needed. One thing we should touch on though is weight. When doing precision work with a router, weight can sometimes provide an increased level of control. For instance, when you have a 1/8" straight bit installed into your router, it doesn't provide enough grab when compared to a 1/2" bit. A bit of a heavier router will help prevent that grab from you losing control.

Makita 18v LXT Brushless Compact Router XTR01Z

Makita has delivered something to the woodworking and professional world that we have all been waiting for. A professional compact or trim router. A unit that has a build quality that can stand up to the workload of a professional woodworking shop or the beating to and from and on the job site. With a solid aluminum body and base, right out of the box we commented on the build quality and feel of the unit. Powered by Makita's 18-volt LXT battery platform, the corded power meets the cordless convenience in a compact router. The Makita BL brushless motor is to praise for the longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life.

Features and Specs

18-volt LXT Battery Platform
Two-button on/off system
Variable speed dial (10,000-30,000 RPMs)
Aluminum body and base
Rack and Pinion mechanism
Rubber Over-molded grip
Clear plastic dust shroud
1/4" Collet
Edge guide
Plethora of accessories

Dewalt DCN680 20volt MAX 18 Gauge Brad Nailer
WorkshopAddict


Published on Aug 23, 2017
Price the Dewalt 20volt MAX 18 Gauge Brad Nailer on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2vRG8Gk
The DEWALT DCN680 18 Gauge Brad Nailer drives 18 Gauge brad nails from 5/8" to 2-1/8". This model is a continuation of the cordless nailer line from Dewalt. The 18 guage brad is ideal for fastening decorative molding, casing, kitchen crown, and shoe molding. Like the other nailers in the Dewsalt line, this has a brushless motor. Dewalt wants the DCN680 to work on battery power alone, leaving the user to forget about gas or hoses. This tool is great for punch lists or smaller jobs! You will love it in your shop as there is no hose to trip over! Dewalt also made the nose smaller so the user can see the nail placement easier.

Craftsman Project Calclulator
On The Workbench


Published on Sep 3, 2017
I quick look at the Craftsman Project Calculator #39749, a "tool" that I'm pretty sure will make a top ten list for tools I regret buying. This calculator is supposed to help make common calculations easier, but lacks trigonometric functions (Sine, Cosine, Tangent), and Pi is buried. Save your money and buy a TI instead

A much better option TI-30X IIS

Just got one of these: I wish I would have bought one before I did my steel roof repair/install back over Labor Day. Driving hundreds of screws with my old drill driver about wrecked my right elbow. I have been staying away from treasure hunting until the damn tendons heal up.
This B&D isn't in the league of the Makita and Milwaukee impact drivers but hell, neither am I and this costs half as much. It also has really good reviews.
It's small, has good balance and great battery life. Aftermarket 20v lithium batteries are pretty cheap too.

DEWALT DCC2560T1 FlexVolt 60V Max 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor Kit Review
WorkshopAddict


Published on Sep 28, 2017
Price the DEWALT DCC2560T1 FlexVolt 60V Max 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor Kit on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2wVJrPg
Dewalt Cordless Compressor - The DEWALT DCC2560T1 FlexVolt 60V Max 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor Kit gives users the option to go cordless without sacrificing performance. The performance of the air compressor and capacity of the tank allow for uses in trim carpentry along with recreation use. We put this air compressor through many tests to give you an idea if its performance will suit your needs. Make sure to watch our YouTube video to see the testing.

No joke, the DEWALT FlexVolt 60V 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor performs as if it was a corded air compressor of similar size but offers all of the convenience and portability of cordless. If you like to use small and lightweight pneumatic tools, this air compressor allows you to cut the power cord but keep the hose. Runtime with the included FlexVolt 6.0Ah battery (really a 60-volt 2.0 Ah battery) was excellent and we believe it will run a full workday for many users on a single battery charge. There is a gauge that lets you know the pressure in the tank next to, what DEWALT calls, a OneTurn Regulator that allows you to choose the PSI output with a dial. Just like many new DEWALT tools, this air compressor is made in the USA with global materials.

2.5 Gallon Compressor

What each person expects out of a 2.5 gallon air compressor might be different, but this is a small compressor that is meant to work in small jobs. This unit will not supply a framing crew, nor will it run an impact wrench with its 1.2 scfm output at 90 PSI. Using this air compressor as it was designed to be used, for small nailers or to complete small jobs without a cord, it performs flawlessly. The battery life is surprising and if you need more runtime, one can always upgrade to the DEWALT FlexVolt 9.0Ah battery.

We used this compressor with 18 and 16 gauge nails testing the 2.5 gallon air tank to see how many nails we could shoot without the compressor going into recovery mode. We were able to shoot fifteen 18 gauge and ten 16 gauge nails before the compressor tank dipped below the 100 psi mark triggering the pump to turn on and return the tank to 135 PSI.

While you can use this air compressor for household use, including topping of automotive tires with air and filling up other items, the performance will still be limited by the size of the tank and the 1.2 scfm output. This compressor will be happy to live and run every day on the jobsite or sit in the garage or trailer as a backup unit. Having the option to cut the cord or have a compressor in a remote area is awesome and DEWALT designed this compressor to perform as if it was corded!
