You may never need these...

307 days ago by Routerisstillmyname | 7 comments »

But when there’s a need for ultra deep jaw clamps 12 inches nothing else will work.So, I put off buying these for a long time and sure enough I have a job at hand that needs these. @ 10 a piece you cant beat the price and quality.you could take the pin out and replace it with a handle but I see no need to that.

Hollow Fast Articulating Arm with Laser

Hollow Fast Articulating Arm with Laser

548 days ago by Tom Coster | 5 comments »

Up front I want to be clear: I have no prior experience with any hollowing system except with handheld style tools. After using an articulating arm my other hollowing tools have become wall art. The hollow fast system with laser cost $399.00 from Amazon. I chose the system that mounts to the tailstock via a normal morse taper on my Jet 1236 lathe. A small chain wraps around the tailstock. When you crank out the tail stock the chain pulls the taper back tightly into the tailstock. A bracket ex...

Good idea - bad design

Good idea - bad design

930 days ago by richgreer | 13 comments »

At one time, I had a Wixey digital guide on my table saw. It could tell me, to .001 of an inch, what the distance was from the blade to the fence. I discovered that knowing the exact distance was not as important as having the ability to adjust the distance easily in very small increments (i.e. micro adjust). I have micro adjustment capabilities on my router lift and router fence and I really like them. This tool allows me to micro adjust my table saw fence. It’s a good idea...

Great  saws

Great saws

481 days ago by Rob186 | 2 comments »

I have a pair of 14” tennon saws 11ppi rip and 13 xcut with walnut handles and they are well built saws the quality is second to none I have a dovetail saw by wenzloff and I think the fit and finish is a little better the brass backs are very heavy with the saw blades being a mirror Finnish. Enough about how they look how do they perform. I have had them for 4 days and have made about 40 -50 cuts and the saws track very good I am still new to sawing by hand and I can make a cut perfe...

Black & Decker RTX

Black & Decker RTX

265 days ago by soapmaker | 8 comments »

I have a couple of the more well known rotary tools but they always seemed underpowered, especially when you put router style cutters in them. I had read when these first came out about them having much more torque for that type of work. I think these are one of the best things this company has made in years. I have one that I’ve been using for four years or so, its held up well enough that I have a couple backups. I’ve run router cutters in carving setups and you can really hog ...

Anything you wanted to know about chucks and more

Anything you wanted to know about chucks and more

This book review is from the May-June 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! Fixtures and Chucks for Woodturning by Doc Green   The tagline for the book “Fixtures and Chucks for Woodturning” says, “Everything you need to know to secure wood on your lathe” and I don’t think that is an exaggeration. What more can there be when you have section headings of: Drive Centers and Live ...

Great Deal

Great Deal

2216 days ago by DannyBoy | 6 comments »

After being overly frustrated with the Craftsman router that I started out with (which still makes a good router for my router table), I finally broke down and bought this one this last weekend. I intended on picking up the Bosch combo at Lowes, but this one was on sale and I’m price minded to a fault. However, I can’t see how I could have made a better decision. The router is solid. 100%. I’ve not had the luxury of working with a mid-grade router like this before, bu...

Great plate and easy to install

Great plate and easy to install

1450 days ago by Vrtigo1 | 4 comments »

Let me start by saying that I bought this plate for my first router table, so I don’t have any frame of reference for comparing it to other products. With that being said, I was impressed with the quality of the plate and the cutout template. The price was right, at about $50 from Amazon. I was a little worried about getting a phenolic plate and the possibility of it warping when I hang my Hitachi M12V from it, but the plate feels very strong and stable. Only time will tell, but I...

Jet Speed Clamps with Slip Clutch and 4" Throat

Jet Speed Clamps with Slip Clutch and 4" Throat

1047 days ago by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

These clamps were needed to reach over my pipe clamps during complicated glueups. The long 4” throat can accomplish this easily. The handle is large enough in diameter for good clamping pressure, and they easily closed all of my mortise and tenon joints with no gap. Cons: The clamp pads fall off easily. This is easily solved with a dab of silicone caulking. The slip clutch occasionally slips when you don’t want it to. I usually prefer clamps with a trigger for ju...
