Yup POS pricesmart has two available right now .


Got it at the mausica branch..lots in stock

This one doesn’t have 220V like the other one right ?what’s the heaviest draw equipment that this one can use ?


The rating is on the box: 900W (7.5A @ 120V)

A 3/8 inch drill draws about 8A run/15A startup. A 7-1/4 inch circular saw draws about 13A run/25A startup.

If you want to run a circular saw, you should look for something in the 1800 to 2000 watts range (15 A @ 120V).

I have a 2 stroke generator like this somewhere. It worked great for running lights and charging cordless tools.

Got this from Bhagwansingh's last week... only tested on some scrap to make sure it working since the buggers only giving 14 days warranty. So far it has a powerful motor and the blade is very stable. The table and fence is sturdy and well built. The stand is also pretty neat.

This is a tool that I wanted since I was 15 yrs old ...LOL... Christmas come early. BTW it cost $2k

nice , congrats

bought my 1st 1 a craftsman about 15yrs ago , much easier & faster than circular saw & straight edge , makes repeatable cuts a breeze

get a good blade for it & always check that fence is parallel to blade ... make a good outfeed table for it too

2 tings that usually go bad is the spark plug(first thing I changed) and the capacitor just under the cover(never had to change mines yet) but friend had to in his... Put in some good hours of use with it

Led lights and fans etc handle all with ease
Again just cal your total Watts requirements and buy a gen that's suitable.

I realized the tables on these saws are too darn small for cutting down large sheets, so I'm going to buy a track saw
That saw is identical to my Skil. I think they all come out of the same factory
Calibrate your rip fence to ensure it really is parallel to the saw blade. A lot of the cheaper table saw guides aren't precise and can throw off long cuts
Same for the mitre gauge. Mine's rubbish and I need to buy a proper one
Also look into building a cross-cut sled and out-feed table to help with cutting large pieces
Finally, NEVER remove the riving knife and kickback guides, ALWAYS use the push stick, NEVER lean over the blade, get in the habit of stopping the blade as soon as your cut is done

G' Evening folks!

I was wondering if anyone sells handrail brackets like this in Trinidad?
Can't recall seeing any, although I never really looked.

Nice, thank you! I see they have a showroom on the Avenue.

It also looks like they run a next cheap line of tools: Fixtec

Anyone used those sub 700w electric paint sprayers and can give their thoughts

I saw ingco 450w for 350
Amazon has a few that would be around 500tt and 700w

Looking for reviews on these too . Speed is the main advantage ? But having to do higher areas would it be mandatory to use scaffolding versus a roller brush and extendable pole

You'll need to have the spray tip a few inches from the surface to be painted. A ladder or scaffolding is required.

The advantage for me is when painting irregular surfaces that would require brushing. An airless sprayer is faster and easier. It takes more time to prep and more time to clean up after though.

For more than what can be covered with about one gallon of paint, or if you are painting overhead, you will want to move up to a stand sprayer where the spray gun is on a hose. The paint is pulled directly from the bucket. These aren't cheap but they are faster and work better. The brand I have preferred for years for my personal use is Graco.

I have a cheap (Harbor Freight) electric spray gun for a couple years now and only now decide to try it out
The instructions are calling for a few drops of 'air gun oil' in two spots before use
Does anyone have an idea of what exactly 'air gun oil' is, and where I can find it?

Air tool oil. I use mine for my nailgun and stapler. I bought it in Peaks and saw it in other places too like Idrees on the Avenue but i am sure Bags has it too. It's a small bottle but it will last forever, especially for me because i always forget to use it. :?

like said above its not hard to find & u dont need a big bottle since that recommended 1 or 2 drops occasionally wont empty ur bottle in a hurry

u might want to go around asking for "air tool oil" since local ppl might be puzzled with d air gun oil terminology ...

lil summ for the peeps buying jobsite table saws (ie cheap / affordable), the miter gauges are generally inaccurate so it's always a good idea to calibrate them by making sure 90 degrees as indicated really is 90 degrees to the blade, otherwise you won't rip boards properly
Checking 45 degree calibration is also easy, using a square. Just line up two equivalent measurements along the miter gauge track(I used 8" on both sides) and verify the gauge is reading correctly
This stuff is on the tube, for more details

The one that Kelvin ghany sells is pretty good imo. Worx I think is the name, I've used it a good few times for welding RHS and angle iron and it does pretty ok could get so.me decent welds from it. Only thing I find is to use 14 guage rods the machine performs better and you have better current control...

I saw a small Forney stick welder at Bhagwansingh's Trincity earlier this year. $2100 iirc.

I have been advised by a few welders that the Forneys are quite good for small project use and home use.
