Back in June of 2005, I was offered a job in Phoenix. My wife and I flew out to find a place to live. We had 3 days. The night of the last day we finally found a house to rent. Never had been to Phoenix, but trusted our instincts. Back to Minneapolis. Two weeks to pack our 35 years of memories. (You know how much stuff you accumulate in that amount of time?) Got to Phoenix the end of June in time to start the new job. Moving van arrived 5 days later. I had only packed a few of my wood shop...

On a review of the Performax 22-44 some of the jocks were saying they don’t use the little paper changing tool. It works so well I am convinced that they must not be using it right.

Now just hook the tool in the hole in the top of the clip. Pull the handle straight out. Then turn it counter cloc...

How to use a KerfmakerOk, many asked me this question, and I have seen it again and again on LJ. If you need to find out how to make one, you can see my Kerfmaker 'Brass'n wood'. Another fun gadget is the tenonmarker:http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39236 I’ll try to explain, as well as I can, feel free to ask questions if I do not make myself clear (I’m only human): Collect what is needed, in this case a base stock and two thinner side stocks, and of course a Kerfmaker...
