I need a little help... - 7 replies

I actually brok...

Jointmaker Pro - Please Read - 6 replies

I was surfing the net and once again saw the Bridge City Tool “Jointmaker Pro”, I know that I must be crazy but the tool looks straight forward and simple enough in concept. Does anyone else think that a usable variant could be shopmade by a talented group like us? For under $1195.00?

I’m making several utility cabinets from birch plywood and I’d like to edge band all of the exposed edges for durability. Does anyone have a safe solution to rip 1...
