I have had this Leigh dovetail jig for more than a year and have yet to tune it so I can use it.From wood stuff 2010When I first got it it was an old D4R so I upgraded the clamp mechanism and added a bit of adhesive sandpaper to the clamp bars.The first couple times that I tried this machine I found that the wood wanted to slide under the clamp bars so I put sandpaper strips to control that .I also had difficulty the 1/4 inch shank bits that I had on hand were sliding out of the collet adapte...

Shop vac dust deputy system w/ blast gates

03-12-2010 10:34 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 2 comments »

Okay i’ve been asked to show how my shop vac dust deputy system works so here it is. I have the smaller ridgid shop vac from home depot under my ras inside the cabinet stuffed with insulation enough to dampen the noise but still let the motor cool and exhaust as it should. So fan no problems (-: The hose then goes to the dust deputy on the outside rear to the 5 gallon bucket it comes with, out of the top of the cyclone up towards the saws. I have it hooked into the home depot clea...

02-17-2010 05:22 AM by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

It’s the JET – JSG-96CS: 6’’ x 48’’ Belt / 9’’ Disc Sander w/ Closed Stand, 3/4HP 1Ph, 115V. It arrived by pallet in two boxes: Right away the 3/4HP motor and belt seemed bigger than I’d imagined this past year or two (this has been on my wishlist for awhile now).
