I need your help.

11-14-2010 06:39 PM by nobuckle | 9 comments »

Okay, things are coming along with the router table project. The last thing that I worked on was making the insert plate for the router. I opted to make one because I don’t have the money to spend on a manufactured one. Besides, I hade some 1/4” aluminum plate that a friend gave me which worked out really well. Here is where I need your input. I need to know if I should make the diameter of the through hole the same size as the diameter of my largest router bit, in this case ...

Wedding Clock #10: Like Frankenstein, It Stands Up

07-05-2011 01:17 AM by kenn | 2 comments »

I am up to the nerve wracking part of this build. I need to put some dados into the sides of the clock, but since both the sides and front/back are angled, the dados need to be angled. I’ve been thinking about how to do this since I started this project. Use a stack dado set and the table saw? Yeah, that would work, but I don’t think the cut will be as precise as I need it to be and the cut would register on the front edge of one side and the back edge of the other side. That...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #3: Top is flat

03-23-2010 01:14 AM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

I tapped the holes that were meant for the original fence with a 10mm tap. I drilled and countersunk the angle irons with the center hole slightly higher than the ones near the edge. I then re clamped the top to take the bow out and attached the angle iron with Gr. 8 machine screws. After a few hours of hand filing and test fitting, I got the angle irons attached plus I put lock nuts on the inside. My smallest feeler guage is .008 and must be forced under the straight edge at the worst po...

Medal Chest #10: Router Inlay

04-22-2013 12:58 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. Today’s task was to fit the completed carving into the front panel of the box.  To do this, I decided to mark out the area I needed and use the router my dad donated to the shop last October.  It felt good to use this o...

Routing the miter slots deeper

01-11-2015 04:40 PM by TheFridge | 4 comments »

So to start with. The miter slots on my saw were shallow from routing the table top flat. I finally decided last night to setup my incra 1000hd for this saw, but in order to do that, I needed to rout the right slot deeper. Ill get around to the left eventually, but the right slot will pretty much be the incra’s new home. I used the same 10$ ryobi router and HF router speed control I used on the top, and just used the fence as a guide. I started with a 1/4” straight bit an...
