Let me see your Mag Switch Jigs

01-19-2009 06:23 PM by spaids | 5 comments »

The uses for these things seems endless. I WILL be picking some up within the next few weeks. Who wants to share their innovative mag Switch jigs with us? PS has anyone figured out a way to cut the perfect hole for these? I know a forstner bit seems like the way to go but the Mag switch has that one flat side which is an underutilized feature. I could cut the hole for this thing with a flat side the jigs from it would be that much more stable.

Useful jigs for your shop #1: A cradle for changing router bits on a Triton router

12-25-2008 11:52 PM by Bob #2 | 18 comments »

I got tired of chasing my big router around the bench when changing bits or setting depth of cut so today I grabbed a piece of 1×4” and a chunk of 1/4” mdf and made a cradle.I traced around the router and cut the MDF out in a rough pattern on the bandsaw then tuned it a bit with the spindle sander.From wood stuff 2009Next I put a brace inside to support the router top and covered it with a bit of foam to prevent scratching. Heres the finished cradle held on the bench with ...

Circle Cutting Jig

12-05-2008 06:17 AM by Grumpy | 11 comments »

I needed a jig to make a lazy susan, my blog is at;http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/Grumpy/blog/6612This jig was not my design but came from an article in a magazine. It is fairly simple & I thought it might be worth sharing.There are 3 wooden components & a handful of metal bits. A 1/4”X6” disc can be stuck to the item you want to shape or a 1/4 pin can be screwed into a hole in the centre of the item as in the above photo.A 4 1/2”X 1/2” piece of desired length...

Lazy Susan

12-05-2008 05:01 AM by Grumpy | 15 comments »

This project had more hickups than an old drunk in the park but thanks to three of my buddies who gave some excellent advice I was able to straighten (I do mean straighten) things out. Our Kitchen table is an 8 seater. Reaching items in the middle was a bit of a nuisance unless you stood up. A lazy Susan was the answer, but what size?.I drew the whole thing on sketchup but that did not give a satisfactory idea of proportion. I then cut two 8mm (5/16”) plywood templates, a 500mm & 60...

Shop Organization #3: Hanging saw holder

11-09-2008 09:15 AM by SteveKorz | 10 comments »

I’ve been working on this wall slat system for a couple days. I only had a couple hours to mess with it today. One of the things that I made was a cam action hanging saw holder. I got tired of storing my saws flat against the wall on a nail. It’s inconvenient if you store more than one per nail, then you end up with saws on the bench that you aren’t using (getting dull every time something bumps into them). I made this hanger to solve that problem in my shop. I know,...

Tool thoughts #13: Wolvie Clone in progress

11-02-2008 03:16 AM by NedB | 5 comments »

With my shop mostly completed, I have turned towards getting my tools in order, including setting my grinder for sharpening my turning tools. I found this plan online and decided that it would be easy enough to build instead of shelling out $90 for the wolverine jig itself. I still have to mount the grinder to the platform at the proper height, as well as recut the v-block. The one there isn’t cut evenly, so I’m going to cut another piece on the tablesaw instead of the bands...

Phenolic Plywood I've checked it out

09-24-2008 05:04 AM by Karson | 28 comments »

Two hundred and 43 days ago MSKI posted a blog on Phenolic Plywood He had found some interesting stuff on the web that had 4 X 8 sheets of Phenolic Plywood for $51.00 a sheet. The stuff at Woodcraft is 65.00 for a 2 X 4’ size. I thought I’d check it out. I used the WhiteCap Industries web site. This past summer my wife was flying to see her mother and she was leaving from the Baltimore Airport. Whitecap Industries has a store about 15 miles from the airport. So I went prepar...

Work(shop) in Progress #3: Bosch 4100 TS - Zero-Clearance Inserts

07-06-2008 05:49 PM by PurpLev | 16 comments »

I got a few questions about the zero-clearance inserts I made for my bosch table saw, so I figured I’d post the procedure here as to how I made those. The basic Idea is to take the factory inserts and use that as a template for the router. but alas, the factory insert is just too thin at some points to be able to follow it with a trim router bit, so to tackle this issue I made an initial template out of 1/2” plywood. This first template took a bit more patience and care so that...

Very useful jig for gluing and routing thin material

06-30-2008 06:55 AM by moshel | 9 comments »

I have been using this jig for gluing thin material for some time now: (i think the basic idea was taken from time life’s “art of woodworking”). The jig is basically piece of 19mm hardwood plywood with packing tape cover and 9mm pieces of plywood brad nailed at both ends. the wedges are tapped with a mallet to create the pressure. Lately, i decided to recycle my thin scrap into coasters, very much like tonyu’s. Unlike tonyu, i don’t have a lathe (I think...
