  1. Skil used to be owned by Bosch. At that time, it was a lower quality line, maybe with the exception of the worm-drive Skilsaws. Now it's owned by Chervon and some reviews I've seen lately it's a good quality line of tools. Porter-Cable used to be in bed with Delta. They were some of my original tools and very good. Then Stanley Black and Decker bought them. They, I guess, didn't want them to compete with the DeWalt line so they seemed to be downgraded. Now, it seems that they are doing a more quality tool now. Craftsman, as we have discussed, used to be a long-
  2. Ran across this. I don't use a belt sander much but this seems like a real deal. Reviews on another forum seem positive https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007A9TD3E/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B007A9TD3E&linkCode=as2&tag=bworkbench-20&linkId=ded9c5b75125d47a8e86b934df13b3b5&fbclid=IwAR2g9-n7uu6vmnZr9g_VeSqaDQu0dXRHYKqqjybgki4fdzyyeQ4WeR9WRE4 Aarg, just noticed it's for Prime members only.
  3. I have long considered Skil as a non-pro, Joe Garage, DIY tool line, with the possible exception of their worm-drive circular saws. (I don't know if it's still true, but the brand used to be part of Bosch). Now that's changing, https://www.protoolreviews.com/tools/power/cordless/drills-drivers-cordless/skil-20v-brushless-impact-driver-review/44407/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=skil_makes_us_question_their_diy_status_plus_our_latest_giveaway_and_more&utm_term=2019-04-03 Stanley Black & Decker has acquired a bunch of lines and is now re
  4. Another collection of peculiar workshop related items. The stories and pictures you are about to see are real. Call it an obsession, sickness, hoarding, or missing fence rescue, IDK why I do it...I just do... Before you judge me and my madness illness, you should first speak to those voices in my head. Rest assured once you do, you'll be snatching orphan fences from the hands of the weak and infirmed too. With maybe a couple of exceptions, all have been $1 or less. those on the right probably 10-30 cents/ea. The Craftsman on the far left was a buck (ma
  5. These treasures followed me home a couple/three weeks ago...Nothing really exciting and not all wood related BUT the prices were right... Picked these at the "Flea-Market Warehouse"...<$5 with tax total for this pile and... this pile of treasures...saw handle is a remade version...Knob is heavy and has a 3/8"-16 x 1-5/8" shaft....wrench will almost fit spindle collet on a couple of routers...fits arbor bolt on my old 7" Craftsman circular saw... New, never used...mate to one I bought there some time back for a buck...now that I have a pair, they'll proba
  6. Interesting article published in today's Woodworker's Journal eZine regarding the connection between Chervon and Skil as well as Chervon's association with other tool manufacturers including Bosch. Worth the time to read IMO. Woodworker's Journal eZine Article
