Blum tandem are the greatest, but are finacky to install-First they are 3/4 longer than the stated length so be sure you have the vack to front clearance – ie an 18 inch drawer box needs 18 3/4 of space in the frame-Next, be absolutely sure that your drawer box back hole is located correctly, or you will suffer the latches not connecting properly-It f your drawer sides have any belly, you need to straighten that out-Everything must be square and level-Using 1/2inch front and rear sides ...

Pine

as woodworkers we tend to underappreciate woods that are not mahogany or walnut, but I think we should appreciate the unique characteristics that can be found in pine when explored long enough, which is easy to do thanks to its availability. below is a link to a box I made out of a unique piece of fire knot pine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iH1wFVv5IDA

Stenciling Dado Chippers

01-17-2017 04:12 PM by SlickTX | 1 comment »

I recently researched upgrade options for my entry-level Avenger dado set. I opted for the Freud SD508 8” Super Dado set. One of the minor complaints about this dado set was the fact that the chippers are not labeled with their sizes.

It turned out that I couldn’t do that because of the coating that Freud puts on the blades and chippers. What to do? I then ...

Hints and Tips #26: To the last drop

This is a tip that I got from the pooroldchap YouTube channel [link]. He posts what he terms Workshop Waffles where he talks about things in his workshop. If you use WD-40 or a similar aerosol propelled lubrication oil this may help you save a few cents. I took an old metal oil can that once contained sewing machine oil.

The Ultimate Vice Jaws
