Reader Jim sent us a brief but comprehensive review of Porter Cable’s 2-speed 14″ floor-standing band saw. The saw is designed for cutting hard and soft wood, and features a 16″ x 16″ tilting cast iron work surface. Here’s what Jim had to say about the saw:

Oxmoor House is recalling nine home improvement books since they “contain errors in the technical diagrams and wiring instructions that could lead consumers to incorrectly install or repair electrical wiring, posing an electrical shock or fire hazard to consumers.” We’ve seen several posts elsewhere about this recall, but figured it couldn’t hurt to mention it ourselves.

We are quite eager to give Kobalt’s palm ratchet a try, but […]
