That sounds like a good theme song Larry. See what I mean? Help just pops up when you need it if you are an LJ member.

I never thought I would be getting help from Australia up here in Norway. Cyberspace is a strange and wonderful place. I just read in New Scientist magazine that our universe might just be a hologram! I’m not really too interested though, as I can’t see how that could help me in the shop.

It is pretty amazing how knowledge gets spread on the web. I bought some lock miter bits, big and junior sizes some time back. I experimented a little with one and found out that I didn’t know enough to use them properly. I didn’t really have a project for them at the time so I just put them away. Since buying a new router I’ve been thinking maybe I could get some use out of them now. So I looked it up on the net. After looking at a zillion websites showing me how to use them and jigs to help me with that, I am now an “expert” ha ha. I even built a couple of cool jigs that I also found on the net to ensure safe and consistent results, and they work! This new-found knowledge is thanks to folks willing to share their skills and I am really grateful to them. I intend to do a blog on these so I can pass along my personal experience and observations with them, and of course show off my new jigs at the same time. The actual set-up procedures will be shown as links to the best advice I found. I hope this will help some of the many angry people out there who have paid a lot of money for these bits and haven’t been able to get the results they had expected.
