Saw Making #4: Gents Saw Conversion Part 3

06-28-2016 04:03 PM by AgentTwitch | 2 comments »

As we move onto Part 3 of The Gents saw conversion tutorial, we focus on cutting the saw plate and drilling the holes for the split nuts. To help us with this endeavor, we will use Dykem Steel Blue, which is used to help make for easy and accurate layout. While the saw plate is away from the saw back, put some layout fluid on top of the plate where you plan to make cuts and drill holes. Make sure you have the teeth facing the correct direction, or you may end up with a Western s...

01-13-2013 05:28 PM by rockinmichael | 3 comments »

My new 1.5 inch flush trim router bit from Whiteside Router bits was purchased with a generous amount of glue covering it (to prevent rust, and from cutting yourself). How might I get this glue off?

A Router Bit Cabinet with a Secret

09-29-2012 06:25 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 7 comments »

Hey guys and Gals, this weeks project is just a fun simple shop project with a twist. I decided to build a Router bit cabinet for the shop. Well that was the plan, then i started thinking about a way to make it a little more interesting.. Then it hit me, Why not make a Router bit cabinet with a Secret Compartment? I came up with a simple way of locking and unlocking the compartment. So one thing led to another and this is the results. Now the cabinet itself is not made of anything fancy. Sinc...

EZ Mitre #1: Update - Using router bits

05-15-2011 08:17 PM by BritBoxmaker | 12 comments »

Since the original EZ mitre blog there have been variations added. To formalise the adding of new and/or additional methods to the technique I will add updates for now and re-release the whole thing if I ever get time. The main reason for this update is, as has often been asked, ‘can this technique be done using a table mounted router and ‘v’ groove bit ?’ Up until now I have been reticent to suggest this but I have just this week discovered router bits that are up ...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #33: What cutter?

10-15-2010 10:45 PM by degoose | 6 comments »

In answer to a question from LJ Sharon aka PurpLev.... I took some close up pics of the Carb-i-tool 55 mm 3 flute surfacing cutter… this bit has 3 rotatable replaceable carbide tips…. as they dull or are damaged you loosen of the holding screw with the tool supplied and rotate 90 degrees to a new face… when all 4 are used… just replace for a few dollars each.This is a fairly powerful router bit and it is advised only to use it in some form of jig… such as the &#...

Trying out the router table and bit from Charles Neil

05-05-2010 11:31 PM by sandhill | 4 comments »

I scored some tiger maple, cherry and white oak yesterday and just had to try out the new router table with my new router bit I (Thanks Charles for the bit and Jim for the lead) The tiger was a piece I deemed not worth risking damage but as it turned out it came out great. I ran it over the jointer and it took about 4 passes to get the profile to the desired point.

First mortise/tenon #3: freud raised cabinet bits arrive

03-05-2009 04:36 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

UPS delivered these today along with a new aluminum router plate for the new bosch 2 1/4 hp router combo kit. I hope this all works. The raised panel bit looks quite formidable. Can’t wait for the credit card bill too. On my way to my first door. Scary. I’ll do a review right now: The bosch router and the Freud bits will work great. At these prices they’ve got to so that’s that! Actually, I’m a couple of days away from making them. I’ve got all my rai...

Mistake with Stile and Rail bits

03-17-2008 02:59 AM by Blake | 19 comments »

I did a little trading at work a while back and ended up with a nice pair of “Stile and Rail” router bits. They are identical to these only they were Freud brand: I was really excited about these bits because my kitchen cabinets are a project that has been put on hold for over a year and these will really help me finish the doors. I had never used these bits before. I did a test cut of both joints and it fit together so sweet: I measured twice and double che...
