Well you could get by without them. $15 a pair from Rockler. What the heck are they? They hold aux. fences and stopblocks to your existing rip fence, for crosscutting and dado operations where the blade would otherwise obliterate your existing fence. Just rip a piece of ply, melamine, or other stable stock, drill two holes for the clamps, and clamp away. The biesemeyer aux. fences with clamps are around $150. The only advantage I see is that their fence is exactly 1” thic...

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

03-21-2009 01:25 AM by knotscott | 7 comments »

Even for a first timer, this inlay kit worked flawlessly as advertised. Using just basic router skills, it couldn’t be much simpler. Put the bit and the guide bushing in the router, trace the template to cut the receiving hole, add the spacer to trace out the inlay with the same template, cut the inlay piece free from the stock, and place it in the complimenting cutout hole. Some sanding may be required to make everything flush, and a practice run is always a good idea. The tip of the ...

I don’t have a single new power tool in my shop. I have inherited quite a collection and what I don’t have i like to buy from craigslist / ebay. This means that I do a lot of cleaning up and rust removing. So far I have bought a ridged contractor table saw circa 2000 a delta homecraft jointer circa 1950. As you can Imagine they didn’t run so smooth at first. The table saw had been rusting in an aircraft hanger for a few years and had a light coating of rust on everything....

Amana bits are great, the need for this set is not

Amana bits are great, the need for this set is not

06-01-2010 12:59 AM by rhett | 8 comments »

This is a fine set of bits. The quality, workmanship and finish of all my Amana bits has been flawless. Therefore this is not a bad mark about Amana router bits, they are the best you can buy in my opinion. This is however a review of the actual need to have a set of bits like these. I bought this set due to the fact that I have a kitchen on the floor with seven 45 degree corners. Building faceframe cabinets, this equates to 28 faceframe stiles needing a 22.5 degree angle. I assumed t...

When a square is not square...

When a square is not square...

09-11-2012 05:39 AM by nwbusa | 11 comments »

I’ll make this review short and sweet. When it comes to try squares, they really only have to do one thing well—be square. I bought this inexpensive Crown 4” try square, not expecting any more or any less from it. Unfortunately, it failed in its primary purpose—it was only mostly square, and that just ain’t good enough. The specific problem was that the blade was indeed square to the base; however, the top of the blade was not parallel to the bottom. The las...

It's a huge upgrade from what I had

It's a huge upgrade from what I had

07-25-2011 12:36 AM by ic3ss | 8 comments »

I had this craftsman 5/8hp router that I inherited from my father-in-law a while ago. It was all plastic and really light. I used it to do some decorative inlay work, and for that it was ok. I did find that it’s light weight made it easy to make unintended movements when doing light touch work. I figured a heavier router would help. I decided on the 895PK because it comes with a height adjustment crank that goes through a table insert to engage the elevation adjuster on the fixed bas...

Quality Control issues at Freud

Quality Control issues at Freud

I recently purchased this dado set at Woodcraft and after making my first dado cut I noticed a ridge in the middle of the cut, as if the chippers were a fraction smaller that the outside blades, I took it back and exchanged it for another, which did exactly the same thing. When I returned to Woodcraft they put it on one of their table saws and got the same result, a noticeably higher ridge in the middle of the dado cut making the bottom uneven. They began pulling all these off their shelves...
