7/1/2015 – I will clean them up and start reviewing them tonight or tomorrow. All I know right now is they are very oily and the tips are covered in plastic. They will be rated 1 star until I find out different. More later… 7/2/2015 – Just got done testing 4 bits. Each bit was used to drill 5 holes. When the holes were measured each was small by 1/128-1/256. The dial calipers I used also come from Lee Valley. Since a woodshop is not a machine shop I am totally happy with ...

Great cutting bits

Great cutting bits

06-20-2015 07:48 PM by DKV | 9 comments »

I bought this set of drill bits because I was always needing a bit a tad larger or smaller than the bit I had available. This is a set from 1/16 to 1/2 inches by 1/64th. It’s the “by 1/64th” that I bought the set. Now I can easily go a tad bigger or smaller. The bits cut very clean holes entry and exit but all new bits probably do. The real test comes after a year or so of use. These bits get 4 stars until I see them holding their edge after a year’s use.

Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

I have never done dovetails upside down with a router table but it works great. You can see Roger Gifkin demonstrating the jig on youtube. I have used the jig twice so far. Both results came out with a tight perfect fit. Make sure your stock is square and flat. Follow the easy directions and be happy. This is a five star review…except for the dust storm which is caused by doing your dovetails on a router table. Mask and safety glasses are a must. As you lean over the jig to guide the wo...

My first attempt at using the Veritas guide. I could have filled in some of the chips with sawdust and glue but figured since I’m just practicing I’ll let it go. Here’s what I found/prefer. I like to use the guide to about 3/4 the cut, remove the guide and finish using the cut slot only. That way I can better see the line to stop at. Let the saw do the work and add no pressure. I only used sharp pencil marks, cut inside the line of the waste side and made sure the fit was tight. I pared accor...

I am building raised panel cabinet doors for an infill cabinet I am doing for the wife. All of my router bits to date have either been CMT, Whiteside or Freud and I have been pleased with the performance of them. Being a hobbyist woodworker I figure router bits that are built to be used by professional woodworkers should last me a lifetime. Also, since I could not envision myself ever again making raised panel cabinet doors I decided to go cheap on this one-time purchase, one-time use bit....

Ok, I have about two weeks under my belt with the Eye Fi card and I don’t understand why I didn’t buy it sooner. Anyway, here is how I use it. The Eye Fi is in my Canon G9 which I use primarly for most my pix. The shots are automatically uploaded to both my desktop HP pc and to my Samsung tablet. I also have my tablet setup to automatically upload all pix to Google+. There is no limit to the number of photos you can upload to Google+.I use the tablet primarily to upload pix (LJs as an exam...
