Ash handrail cut with Yonico router bits

Ash handrail cut with Yonico router bits

05-10-2015 03:21 AM by exelectrician | 7 comments »

I wanted a solid handrail for my son-in-laws remodel but the big box stores only sell finger jointed handrail these days. This Yonico set was found on ebay brand new from Yonico. The project called for fourteen foot long handrails, I got a 10 quarter by 7” wide ash board and cut it into 3 pieces.I got 42 feet of handrail including the cost of the cutters for under 120$$ Very cost effective. Bottom line – Yes I would recommend this set to fellow LJ’s

Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

04-10-2015 01:22 AM by DKV | 8 comments »

I have never done dovetails upside down with a router table but it works great. You can see Roger Gifkin demonstrating the jig on youtube. I have used the jig twice so far. Both results came out with a tight perfect fit. Make sure your stock is square and flat. Follow the easy directions and be happy. This is a five star review…except for the dust storm which is caused by doing your dovetails on a router table. Mask and safety glasses are a must. As you lean over the jig to guide the wo...

Sommerfeld Router Bit Sets

Sommerfeld Router Bit Sets

04-02-2015 07:54 PM by Woodmaster1 | 12 comments »

I purchased the router bit sets to make kitchen cabinets. The tongue and groove set works great for assembling the sides to the face frame, perfect match. the shaker raised panel is great as well. I had operator error problems at first, one call to Sommerfeld’s and problem solved. Marc Sommerfeld is the person that called me to solve my problem. That is what I call great customer service. I will post pictures of the new kitchen cabinets when they are finished sometime in August. At lea...

Good less expensive router bits? Is this possible?

Good less expensive router bits? Is this possible?

03-25-2015 10:40 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 13 comments »

I don’t have a lot of mileage on this bit but since they impressed me I put this review out for those who are currently looking for a router bit that they might need for a one time job and not have to pay nearly as much as for a standard name brand one. I will update this review over time if I begin to see any deviation from my initial thoughts. I’d seen these reviewed here before. Usually the reviews are mixed. I needed to make some small fluted moldings for a hutch. I didn...

Mast-r-lift with Incra magnalock plates

Mast-r-lift with Incra magnalock plates

03-11-2015 03:36 PM by philba | 12 comments »

This lift is “sorta” branded by Incra but it’s basically the JessEm Mast-R-Lift II with the Incra MagnaLock insert plates. I am assuming this is made and shipped by JessEm. I purchased it through the Incremental Tools web site. In some ways this JessEm/Incra partnership is a tale of two companies (apologies to Mr Dickens). While all the Incra products I have bought have had superb engineering and packaging, the JessEm kind of came up a bit short. I also installed a ne...

Whiteside Combination Compression Bit

Whiteside Combination Compression Bit

12-16-2014 11:46 PM by Greg..the Cajun Wood Artist | 15 comments »

I have a good number of router bits for different purposes that I have accumulated over the years…some good and some not so good. I have been looking at this spiral combo bit from Whiteside for a while…hoping it would go on sale…but it never seemed to…so and finally decided to buy it. I have given it a good workout before writing this review because it is not my everyday bit and isn’t cheap at $149. I’ve used it in my router table and also with a handhe...

Jessem Roller Guide - FIVE Stars

Jessem Roller Guide - FIVE Stars

12-01-2014 09:20 PM by Kopion | 13 comments »

I’ve posted a lengthy review or two, but this one will be comparatively short. I broker out the Jessem Clear-Cust stock guides for the second time this weekend, and I was just amazed at a) how well they work, and b) how well they’re made. As I was working with them, I decided that they belonged in a very elite category of tools that exceed expectations so much that you immediately cannot remember what you did before you had that tool. Off the top of my mind, the best example of...

Veritas T-Slot Router Bit

Veritas T-Slot Router Bit

06-28-2014 01:18 PM by Lumberpunk | 11 comments »

I love this bit, have owned for about a year now and used on several projects. At $22 Canadian I figure I have saved $60 or $70 on buying t-track for my jigs. The bit will cut a slot full depth straight off but I find it best to hog out most of the waste with a 1/4 or 5/16 bit first and then cut the slot. Tend to leave some furry bits on the top of the slot… easily cleaned up with a few strokes with some sand paper. Living way out in the country it also means I can have t-track anytime...

Makes Your Palm Router Infinitely More Useful!

Makes Your Palm Router Infinitely More Useful!

06-10-2014 08:46 PM by Wes123 | 2 comments »

Since I got my Dewalt 611 palm router, it has really become my go to router. Plenty of power for most jobs and more nimble than my Festool OF1400. The only problem I have had with this router is that you are limited to 1/4” shank router bits. Besides the chatter problems associated with some 1/4” shank bits, I just don’t have that many 1/4” shank bits and don’t want to purchase a bunch of new bits to use on my Dewalt router! The Elaire 8mm collet allows me to...

A safe (I hope) extension for quick above-table bit changes.

A safe (I hope) extension for quick above-table bit changes.

04-11-2014 02:35 PM by ADHDan | 3 comments »

I have a Bosch router table and I hate changing bits. I had to purchase a third-party offset wrench for my 1617, and even still it’s a PITA to pop the throat plate out, wedge a spindle lock wrench under the table, and get the offset wrench on the collet to loosen. It sucked. So I was pretty stoked when I got the Router Technologies Xtreme Xtension last Christmas. I don’t know if I would classify a specialized router table accessory as “Xtreme,” but it works ̵...
