DIY Table Saw Fence #1: Table Saw Fence

2447 days ago by Hutch | 238 comments »

This is my old tablesaw fence. It is a little hard to see from the photo, but I cracked it trying to “micro-adjust” it. So I started to look for an aftermarket fence, of which there are some really nice ones out there. I just didn’t want to spend quite as much as they were asking because I have a previously owned Central Machinery tablesaw. I also was curious to see if I could come up with my own fence. I was worried about two things with most diy fence systems that...

Router Table #1: Design ideas, need some feedback

2011 days ago by PurpLev | 43 comments »

OK, so yeah – another blog about a router table, but since I’m going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I’ve had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2 1/4hp). It had the misfurtune of being on the floor when my basement was flooded a couple of years ago, so that top was ruined. I since have been planning to replace it with a shop-built version, and make a full enclosed ...

Work(shop) in Progress #7: New Table Saw: Phenolic Zero Clearance Inserts and Fence Faces for Ridgid R4511

1972 days ago by PurpLev | 13 comments »

So, New Saw, New Zero Clearance Inserts are due! Actually I was planning on working my the Bead Box, but wanted to fine tune the table saw, and ‘get it done’ first, and so, the plan was to use the 5/8” phenolic (not phenolic plywood) panel that I got (I got a 1-3/8” phenolic panel to use as a router table top, and while at it, picked up some ‘lighter’ thinner panels as well, for inserts, plates, etc). I figured – I already have it, and might as wel...

BUILDING BRICK FENCE POSTS FOR FENCE #1: HELP WITH BRICK FENCE POSTS

2633 days ago by johnt | 1 comment »

Hi Folks, I’ve been off the blog for the past few very busy days, something about an infestation of mice in our RV. Problem now solved so I can get back to more pressing things. I am having a new fence put in around our place with a double 10 ft. gate for the RV. I would like to put a Brick Post with an appropriate cap on each side of this entry. I’ve never done very much of this sort of work and I like the idea of a challenge. Would anyone be able to tell me where I might find so...

Norms Router Cabinet #8: and Finally the Fence

1961 days ago by sIKE | 10 comments »

I have had the cabinet completed for sometime now, and had the Incra Fence already. However it is not a general purpose fence, one that you can attach feather boards and such to. I need to be able to keep my work flat on the table for my current project (Sliding Dovetails) so I am now having to build this guy out. Having read about the complaints about the MDF swelling after a period of time I have decided to finish mine out with paint. I went to the BORG and grabbed a can of a off white spr...

Harry's new router table and fence design #2: Adjustable router table fence

824 days ago by TheHarr | 8 comments »

My earlier router table fences lacked control. I would tap one side and the other would move. Tapping is an inexact way to move something in very small increments. I’ve hit on a very inexpensive, easy to make, router adjustment system that works well. It can quickly, and easily, zero in on precise fence adjustments. This fence is attached to the table using four bolts that can be set up and removed in just a couple of minutes. So less talking and more photos; thanks to my neighbor...

The Great Garage Reorganization and Shop Improvement Act #3: New Table Saw

1653 days ago by captkerk | 10 comments »

Any good workshop redo includes new tools and I finally replaced my old Craftsman bench-top saw with a Ridgid R4511. I got it for the clearance price of $499, but then three days later it dropped in price to $299. I was able to get Home Depot to honor the new lower price and I came away with a brand new saw for an almost criminally low price. The assembly was a bit time consuming, but the other lumberjocks’ reviews helped with some of the common issues. I was quite annoyed to ...

Did you just buy a new bandsaw and it didn’t come with a fence? Did you spend all of your money and really don’t have it in your budget to purchase a fence system right now? Continue Reading...
