Router table fence needs work to reach full potential

Router table fence needs work to reach full potential

11-09-2011 05:44 AM by GregD | 4 comments »

I have had the Woodpecker's Super Fence router table fence for a few years now. I got it as part of a router table/lift/fence/legs package, but I’m not going to review those other items here. My overall assessment is that the fence works very well, but only after what was for me a significant amount of tuning. For the price I thought it should have worked nearly flawlessly out of the box, so I’m only giving it two stars. As you can see from the picture, this is a split fen...

GREAT router lift !

This really IS a review, so … I’m pointing to it. After spending a fair bit of time, making setup blocks out of UHMW, FOR my Amana glue joint router bit, I can honestly say that I LOVE this lift. The thread pitch and machining make precise dialing in operations—at thousandths of an inch—incredibly easy. Coupled with a height gauge, gauge blocks, or a good rule (I have a Pinnacle 12” that does the job, rather nicely), getting exact bit height is—relat...

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

Hi to all my fellow Woodpeckers, I just received my set of 8 Locking Rings for the PRL V2. I’m very impressed with the lift, but a little disappointed with the Locking Rings. They don’t look like some of the pictures and are very hard to read (have to catch the light just right). So an easy solution is to use “White Out” over all the recessed lettering, let dry and clean up using mineral spirits, now thats makes my job a little easier. The White Out is pretty tough ...

The Untimate router lift! - Woodpeckers PRL V2

Does your arm get tired cranking your router up and down in your router lift? Especially when you hve to crank it all the way up to change a bit? Well, how about no cranking at all and go from all the way down to all the way up in ONE SECOND! Well the new PRL V2 from Woodpeckers does just that. Install the spring loaded handle, give it quarter turn and you can pull or push the router to where ever you want it. Just stop it when you are close and use the micro adjustment wheel to reac...

The Woodpeckers Mini Square is great and FREE SHIPPING doesn't last long!

When I was at the Lie-Nielsen get together at Indianapolis on the 17th of October 2009 Chris Schwarz was using this little square to check plane blade edges for square. I thought the Mini Square was neat so last week when I got an email saying Woodpeckers had free shipping until Thursday the 29th I ordered one I received it today. I used it to square up the table with the blade on my bandsaw and true up the blade on my table saw it works great. It comes in a neat little storage box that...

No more un-square squares. This one is made from solid phenolic

I was notified via e-mail about this square and ordered one right away. It’s a bit pricey at $70, but I will only ever need one. The first thing I did when I got it was to check it for square. It was perfect. Not much more to say in that regard.The only drawback I can see that the material isn’t steel which means that it can be damaged it you aren’t careful.The holes for your hands makes it real easy to move around and position.It’s also nice and thick so it̵...
