« Part 10: A night as big as the Oscars! "TUBAFORE" CONTEST RESULTS!!! Part 11 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 12: The "Amazing Dovetail Machine" and why are tools so expensive? »

In this episode we unveil our shop-made bench top biscuit joining machine designed for fast, accurate glue-ups… and we begin the “Ultimate Tool Cabinet Build”. Plus, Stumpy gives you a list of things to do with your Sundays now that football season is over…

Here’s some screen shots of the sketchup drawing for the machine. The most difficult part about the build was the mount for the joiner. It took a lot of work to get the design just right. If it’s not right, the movement is not accurate.

The lift adjustment mechanism for the table had to be redesigned a couple of times tool. But I finally found the proper way to address all of the issues that contribute to accurate adjustments.

A set of plans is available in our Etsy store ... check it out and help support our show!

It’s actually in three places on LJ’s, Joe, as well as several other sites…

On LJs, this is classified as a blog, and so it shows up in the blog section. But since it has a video in it, it also automatically shows up in the video section. I don’t control that. This time I also added it to the forum thread where people have been following my videos. That is not a new thread started for this video, it is the old contest thread that we have continued to chat on, so I have been using it to update the happenings on the show until the time comes for another contest.

You can comment on all of them, one of them, or none at all. Your call!

Apparently I’m not here, I’m there (Old Contest Thread). But I was told; ‘You can’t there from here!”

Great video!

Another enjoyable Saturday morning with Stumpy (and Steve) – beats going out in the freezing cold workshop!

You’ve really got video production nailed now, Stumpy, you may have a totally new career opening up as a TV presenter!

As someone who doesn’t have hundreds of clamps, the pocket screw system will be added to ‘pop in a few brads to hold it whilst gluing’ technique.

But the feature I liked most about this video was the height adjustment for the biscuit joiner jig using screw-driven wedges. Simple when you see it, but cleverly conceived, and probably very accurate.
