HI Harry,

Yes, that’s the way to the Router Slopes… using Skis… A good way to ski! LOL

That’s a cool setup…

I made some Skis a few years ago too… I’ll have to find that stuff and post it…
Mine is slightly different… but very functional…
... but I do not have such a NICE Photo Shoot as you do…

Nice job!

Thank you…

Never mind the photo-shoot Joe, how about some shots showing how you’ve used them.
I still needed your instructions for posting this thread, I’m a slow learner!

nice sled. I have one setup to flatten big slabs. Once you build one and find out how useful they are, you can’t do without one.

That’s very cool Harry, even your jigs look like works of art.

Harry, how do you use that to make letters? Are you somehow following a pattern, or just removing wood from some kind of stencil you have on the board??

Let’s see now. Threaded rod or smooth, Harry? :-)

Where did you get the metal tubes to do this? Is it just a hollow tube with a threaded rod through it or a long post with threaded ends?

I bought my 10mm and 8mm tool steel rods from MSC. The 10mm was 8.12 and the 8mm was 5.51. They are each 36” long.
