A tale of eBay, Rockler and how I got my Magswitch starter kit.

03-27-2011 10:01 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 13 comments »

I took the plunge today! I finally bought a Magswitch featherboard at Rockler. I have been eyeballing them for a long time, but too stingy to let go of $70! I thought I would just get a couple magnetic switches to make up my own. The other option is just making up an expanding rail to fit in the miter slot. Neither have gotten done, but I have been watching eBay for bargains on magnetic switches. Low and behold, I found one with about 900 pounds pull with a shape that that would easil...

My Prize from the 2009 Fall Sawdust Cronicals Build Chalange

05-21-2010 11:16 PM by Shawn Sealer | 1 comment »

I bought some goodies yesterday from Rockler. I used the Rockler Gift Card I won from doing the 2009 Fall Build Challenge. the sawdustcronicals.com I bought a combo water stone 1000/6000 ( was reading around and people are saying that this is a good grit to start with, if you can only afford one), and a jig to hold the blades while I give honing a try. I also got a nice Shop Dust Collection Expandable hose and a good system for hooking it up to my machines. Lets face it, looks really ne...

005: scrap cutoff shelves #3: still filling them up

03-10-2010 12:53 PM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

My new scrap cutoffs shelves are handy for odds and ends, too, like the little roll of brown paper that’s always in my way, rolled-up foam sheeting, some jointed and planed 2×2s I use as straight bars during panel glue-ups, and a few sets of rails for my router bridge setup. You know… all the narrower stuff under 2’ long. I also finally emptied the two boxes of exotic turning blanks (on sale still!) that I got quite a long time ago. It’s very easy to forget...
