Self Centering Drill Bits - Installing Kreg tracks for clamping, jigs

Self Centering Drill Bits - Installing Kreg tracks for clamping, jigs

206 days ago by darthford | 11 comments »

So I needed to install 5 of these Kreg tracks in my new RAS table, 5×6 screws each for a total of 30 screws. The screws need to be centered and flush (not sticking up half crooked) so you can slide the clamp bolts in the track. There’s little to no room for error. I was still contemplating how to at least center punch them when I was wandering the hardware store and spied these Isomax self centering hinge drill bits, brilliant! Do they do exactly what they advertise, yep! It mad...

They do a great job helping you with the plans.

I thought i would try out selling plans on http://www.sawtoothideas.com/ by submitting a simple plan. i got many emails from them helping me perfect the plan. I haven’t sold anything because the project itself wouldn’t be that popular, also they’re just starting out and need time to grow. If you want to sell plans for extra woodworking-cash, i think that this is a great way.

50 inch Digital Camera Tripod for $6.99 plus free shipping on eBay

50 inch Digital Camera Tripod for $6.99 plus free shipping on eBay

1896 days ago by Dan'um Style | 5 comments »

Hey Guys ! Great deal on a tripod for your digital cameras. Very light duty, but holds the camera very still. Below is a camera test slide show … I took 16 photos in a dark room around 10:30 at night. Photos are each at a different combinations of camera settings, alternating between types of flash and focus settings. With the tripod I took 16 photos in a row, without blur. Granted the photos suck, but the tripod held the camera very steady....link to ebay seller...link to an auct...

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

525 days ago by scarpenter002 | 6 comments »

Ordered these clamps from Woodcraft to go with my DeWalt TrackSaw for $44.99. Purchased these at a 10% discount in December. Watch for their “10% off all DeWalt” sales to order items like this, as they do not normally go on sale. It was shipped direct from the manufacturer. I have used these with both the TrackSaw and Router adapter. Features:These slide into the bottom of the track and quickly can be engaged or released with one hand. (very similar mechanism to the Quick-...

Base is sturdy, but assembly is a pain...

Base is sturdy, but assembly is a pain...

104 days ago by MattyMattAg | 7 comments »

Background: I bought this mobile base for my new Grizzly 1023RLW Cabinet Table Saw, which has a 20.5”x20.5” base. I had to do some slight modifications to get it to fit perfectly, which now that the saw sits on the base, it does. Assembly: I put the base together before doing any mods because I wanted to see how many modifications I was going to have to do. I say that so the people reading this review don’t think the mods negatively affected the assembly of the base. ...

Gimlets

Gimlets

920 days ago by Roger | 8 comments »

This is the 1st time, and NOT the last that I will use these handy-dandy “Gimlets”. The 7 different sizes are a gr8, and quick way to make a threaded starter hole for the 7 different sized screws. I just used the smallest of the set to attach the buttons for the backs of a few picture frames. Very simple, and ez/breeeezee. These are made in France, and very affordable. You can see em at this link: http://www.garrettwade.com/set-of-gimlets-7/p/37J03.04/

But seriously, review of a tape?

But seriously, review of a tape?

Yes, If you, like me, had your share of problems with the right hand table saw scale then this review makes sense. Otherwise, you can skip it.Anyheaux, So the Ridgid 3660 TS right hand scale has been a problem since the day I got it. It was placed/taped in a wrong location. So I ordered an original scale and that one stayed on for two weeks and it started to peal off.The rail was cleaned completely before applying the strip. Maybe too hot in Houston. Not sure. But it was extremely difficult ...

This book review is from the April 2012 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Toolemera is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)Working Drawings of Colonial Furniture By Frederick J. Bryant Oh how I wish I was a “real” woodworker. This book has the plans for the most beautiful furniture, including a gate-leg table that is very similar to an heirloom piece I have that was passed down from my great-grandfather, a banjo clock (I’d never heard of this...

I can't believe its not butter

I can't believe its not butter

1922 days ago by Webb | 6 comments »

From what I can see, the mechanics of this jigsaw appear identical to the corded version (the DW331K). Wow – this saw really surprised me. I wound up doing a lot of carpentry recently (cabinets in the garage made out of 2×4’s and plywood) and my B&D drill died. For my anniversary, the loml bought me a DeWalt 18v drill/impact driver combination kit which started me looking for a way to score another battery. Since I had a “lowest price I could find” B&D I t...

Good personal filter, but disappointing

Good personal filter, but disappointing

1696 days ago by Chris Wright | 14 comments »

This system was purchased when we started up our turning program with the patients from Walter Reed with the intent that if someone needed better filtration then just a dust mask. During operation it provides excellent filtration and fresh air along with the obvious face protection one likes when turning. The motor is quiet so you’re not deafened by the constant hum of a fan near your ear. However, it does fail in a few respects. The battery takes a while to charge and the last time...
