The Ever Evolving Workshop #1: New Delta Unisaw with 52" Rip, Incra TS-LS and LEFT Side Router Table!

07-03-2014 03:49 AM by emrhappy | 5 comments »

I wanted to show you guys and gals my new setup. I recently purchased a Delta 36-L352 to replace MY broke down POS grizzly G0715P. I say that about the grizzly because like many others MY G0715P had a .020 deflection in the back of the blade when I raised it up or down! There was no setting that saw blade parallel with the miter slot. Grizzly wouldn’t stand behind it and said the trunions were probably broke and that I had the ‘wrong saw’ for building cabinets or anyth...

Router Table with Incra componets and 6in Dust Collection

02-12-2014 03:16 AM by Bridger | 1 comment »

Since I relied on many pictures when I was designing my router table I thought I would share some of what I came up with. I used: Incra Maste-R-Lift II, Incra LS17 Positioner Super Fence, PC 7518 Router, Kreg paddle switch and a iGauging 6” DRO Additional pictures here Though I found many pictures of tables with Incra lift systems, I never found one that showed how to attach a iGauging DRO (digital readout) to the lift. Also I never saw any satisfactory locations for the DRO...

Trying new woodworking skills #15: Mitering success

12-09-2013 06:23 PM by BJODay | 3 comments »

I had some problems cutting my mitered table top. I used an Incra miter gauge but had trouble holding the piece firmly. I have a shop built miter sled, but because the pieces are small, they don’t lie well against the fence. I bit the bullet and bought the Incra miter express sled. I’m not doing a review here but I like the sled. I felt very safe using it. The only problem I had was binding in my miter slot. I have a Craftsman Hybrid TS. It has a granite top. I may have to ...

Incra Router Table #3: Finishing it up

09-26-2013 03:02 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

I finished up the project in this session. Since it sticks out, I will comment on my non standard design – i.e. drawers in the back. I originally did this as an attempt to fix an issue in my shop lay out – stupid move. Fortunately, the flaw is not as annoying as I was worried since the INCRA Router Top has you standing at the side (facing the fence) vs standing at the long edge. So I started here And ended here Steps I followed in today’s session1. Dust Collec...

Incra Router Table #1: Creating base cabinet

06-22-2013 12:21 AM by SPHinTampa | 1 comment »

My original router table was one of my first major projects. I was very pleased with the result and it worked well for years. I recently decided to rebuild my router table, primarily because I screwed up my first router table by installing a cheap phenolic plate that sagged. I had just been using a router screwed directly to the base of the table top and then using a piece of masonite with various sized holes to as a zero clearance insert. Then I bought a panel raising bit and figured i...

My Dovetail Jig Buying Journey #1: The first 25 Years.

05-12-2013 03:16 PM by JustJoe | 3 comments »

I spent yesterday playing with my newest joinery jig – the Incra LS-Positioner Super System. Others have already reviewed the Incra and rated it 5-stars (and I agree with them 110%). So instead of a review I thought I’d tell you about the personal journey of 25 years it took to get to the Incra. My dovetail obsession began in the 80’s when I was new to woodworking and hand skills were non-existent. I had plans for a small chest that required half-blind dovetails so I went and b...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #28: Our homemade router lift sure beats bending over, and Randy touches poo!

10-31-2012 07:45 PM by StumpyNubs | 25 comments »

The “great particle board build off” that’s captivated the woodworking world is progressing nicely, but Stumpy takes some time off to make a router lift that just might save the universe! Then he chisels away at the confusion surrounding what types of tools people should own, does a tool review, and gets Randy to touch dog poo. That and a lot more on the new, exciting, action packed and informative episode of Blue Collar Woodworking! After you watch this one, visit St...
