« Part 6: A quick re-furb on a Record No 078 Part 7 of Shop stuff series Part 8: Jointer is done »

I needed to make a new adapter for my table saw box joint jig. It is a design I got from Shop Notes and takes a variety of adaptors, one for each size. When I made it, I only made one adaptor to make 3/4” box joints. I now have it in my head to make some more boxes, seeing as I had so much fun with the “Spidey Box”, and I think a smaller joint is in order for them.

I did a video of how I went about it, leaving in the real life pitfalls typical of small shops on a budget, operated by hobby workers. It would be great to have nice accurate, solid machinery, maybe someday, but for now I probably get as much enjoyment from tinkering and adapting as I do from any thing else.

I hope you enjoy it, thanks for watching.
