Blake H asked Would these be good starter power tools?

I do not have enough money to be upgrading from decent quality tools to great quality tools, so this is why I’am trying to find some of the best tools out their..I’am going to be starting woodworking classes and want some good quality tools are these very good or not?
Corded drill:Milwaukee 1/2 in. Magnum® Drill, 0-850 RPM
Corded Circular Saw:Milwaukee 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw with Quik-Lok® cord, Brake and Case
Cordless Drill: Bosch 18V Litheon™ Brute Tough™ Drill Driver
Jigsaw: Bosch Top Handle Jigsaw
Also, how long do you think these tools could last if properly cared for and used 2-3 times a week or something like that,Thanks!

And got the following answer:

Honestly in later years I am not that impressed anymore with Milwaukee tools, in fact when I went in business in 97 I thought the same way you do about buying tools and bought a Milwaukee Magnum 1/2″ hammer drill, the hammer function failed withing 3 years. I bought a Dewalt to replace it and it still works fine today. I would opt for a Makita circular saw and a Dewalt or Hitachi corded drill. I like the Bosch jigsaw but I would choose the barrel grip model it gives much better control. The Bosch cordless drill is a great tool. Later when it comes to sanders stick with Porter Cable they also make a great plate joiner (biscuit cutter), for routers Bosch or Hitachi. Good luck

Julia Collen asked Do you want to buy a biscuit joiner ???

I need to know about a good biscuit joiner to create a good furniture .

And got the following answer:

Porter Cable makes one, as does Dewalt, and probably Bosch makes one. If Bosch makes one, I would go with that one.

Angel C asked Im buying a biscuit joiner but don’t know which to buy…?

Should I buy one that angles or not. Im maninly going to use it for making a mantle.


And got the following answer:

If you only want it for one project, rent one. Many tool rental yards carry them, and you can buy a small package of biscuits right from them.

If you are looking for one to buy, stay away from Harbor Freight. The stuff is crap. Porter-Cable makes a great biscuit joiner. It’s a little pricey, but worth it. The adjustments to the fence are easy, the motor has more than enough power, and you can use it with a 2″ blade to make slots for face frame biscuits. Hope this helps.


EDIT: If a biscuit jointer cuts slots that are too wide, you need a new blade. It sounds like the blade is not running flat. My P-C makes a perfect sized slot-snug, but not tight. If it’s too tight, it will not allow the glue to coat the surface of the biscuit. Good luck.

Justin F asked Are Porter Cable Tools Good Quality?

I Was Wondering About The Quality Of Porter Cable. I Am Considering Buying Some.

And got the following answer:

Hi Justin F, I’m Ken with The Home Depot and work in the tool & hardware department. Yes Porter Cable makes good tools.

There routers, biscuit joiner and nail guns are top notch. I own two of the routers, have used their biscuit joiner and framing nail gun and consider them a good choice.

If you read any of the woodworking magazines, you will find the Porter Cable tools are one of the best.

s asked Can any one tell how to work my Ryobi biscuit cutter ..?

It turns on but there is nothing that moves. Am I not supposed to push it against the board? It wont push the blade wont come out. Is there some kind of saftey closing thing on it that I cant remeber? I can’t find a manuel anywhere on line and the company has no way to contact them, no way to email. The web site kind of just says piss off. I am rarely available during their limited business hours I missed it again. So I am still looking on line. They take no E-MAILS.

Does anyone know how to work this piece of crap? It is model JM80

And got the following answer:

Man!! You are correct about their website!! The worst! I tried to find the manual for your model, or even any other model that would come close and they’re all “not found” error pages!! I will never buy Ryobi again!

But, the way this thing is supposed to work, you flip down the top fence on the work to set the depth, and the housing should rest against the work, and then you push the unit, which should slide the unit and advance the blade into the wood. Did you check the depth gauge on the back? that might be keeping it from sliding forward. It’s not stuck, is it? can the thing slide at all? There is no safety otherwise. Is it brand new? is there something keeping the sliding from happening for shipping purposes? a clip or a piece of wire or something?

Why don’t you drop into a Home Depot and have a salesman show how one works, as if you were going to buy it. They have the JM 82, which is basically the same model, just updated a little.

I have a Lamello Top biscuit joiner (from back when the European made Lamello and Elu were the only biscuit joiners available in the U.S. A.) that I bought back in the early 80s which is still going strong, believe it or not. If I had to replace it, I would probably get the Porter Cable biscuit joiner.
