Thread: Record Power BS9 or BS250?
06/12/2017 05:20:01

product arrived slightly damaged, the bottom door was warped and not on the machine, when I replaced it the machine would not work because of the warp in the door, i managed to gently twist the door into a position so that the cut off switch was engaged, the blade strangely was also broken! I thought not to send the machine back just because of this as I usually use a different size blade, machine works well with new blade so breakage must remain a mystery, packaging did not show any sign of damage

Thread: Table saw / extensions / sliding beams .

Take the guesswork out of making square cuts on large panels with this must-have table saw add-on.
Sliding tables are usually found on large, industrial table saws used for panel-cutting. And there's a good reason for that. A sliding table guarantees precision cuts, particularly on wide panels. With the sliding table shown here, you can upgrade your ordinary table saw to make square crosscuts every time. The table replaces a wing on your saw's table. You may have to shorten or move the fence rails, but this modification is worth it. The sliding table has the capacity to crosscut a 30"-wide panel with ease. The fence automatically registers square to the blade when installed and can be easily removed. This fence also features a side support to help when crosscutting long stock. If you've been looking to improve the accuracy and capacity of your table saw, this sliding table is the perfect project.

Thread: Bench Drill Press

This is far from the last press you'll need, but it will give you a general idea of what to look for when you decide to buy a real one. The bit holder doesn't fit as illustrated in the thumbnail and almost every part is made of plastic, which is a bad combination for anything that tips over this evening. This hasn't happened to me, but it does require extra clamping to keep stable. A heavier baseplate would have alleviated this.

Thread: Black and Decker Band saw
29/10/2017 04:52:00

I like this product and it's cut everything I actually have tried from plastic to wood and atomic number 13. there's a wobble once the unit is up to hurry virtually like one among the wheels is out of balance. I actually have not been ready to puzzle out associate degree adjustment that affects the wobble. The wobble does not have an effect on cutting performance, however, will create the ground wobble. It conjointly looks louder than some similar saws I actually have utilized in the past.

I have had one or two of band saws within the past wherever you may ne'er regulate the alignment in order that they did not slip their blade at intervals regarding quarter-hour. This unit has not had that downside and has been used for a minimum of twenty hours of cutting.
