A serious consideration if after space saving & 100% flatness

A serious consideration if after space saving & 100% flatness

09-19-2016 03:14 AM by Holbs | 6 comments »

This would be the 2nd largest new $$$ item I have purchased in the wood working arena on sale at Rockler for $249 (full retail is $329). This is the Promax RT, full cast iron, made to fit between the rails of your contractor / cabinet saw (space limitations apply such as motor being in the way on left tilts). I came from the Bosch benchtop router table (RA1181) that was giving me some…gruff. When I was looking to upgrade to more robust router solution, I came across this Bench Dog. ...

Does what it's supposed to do...  with a bit of frustration

Does what it's supposed to do... with a bit of frustration

04-20-2016 06:25 PM by vulgarviking | 2 comments »

They say hind sight is 20/20. I recently bought this because my stand alone Craftsman (diecast deluxe router table and cabinet) was taking up too much space in my one car garage and with the recent purchase of my Delta 36-5000, I needed all the space possible. So, I sold the Craftsman and rather than take the money to build a router table between the saw’s rails, I bought the Bosch. And the reason why I choose this is because the table is exactly 27 inches and with some modifications...

The JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Router Package (The Full Deal) Review

The JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Router Package (The Full Deal) Review

04-19-2016 03:56 AM by Jay39 | 5 comments »

Before I begin, I already had a Bosch 3 HP 1617 Router and a small benchtop Bosch router cabinet. Changing bits were a chore (usually ending up with cuts on hand when changing), and I did not enjoy the routing experience. In fact, I rarely did it because of the difficulty. Fortunately, I knew that as a wood worker, routing is an important technique that can enhance many projects. Well, this just in! JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Complete Router Table System! System came in 3 mid-size boxes, ...

Not Precisely Precision

Not Precisely Precision

04-15-2016 02:15 AM by TheMrWoody | 10 comments »

I have many Rockler products in my workshop and I’m generally pleased with their accuracy. This router table insert replaced a Rockler Pro Plate so I could install a new 3 HP Porter Cable. I found the mechanical system to be exceptionally well made and the top plat is an excellent thickness to avoid any deflection. The adjustment mechanism is easy to use and the clamping system for the motor is very good. Where this device gets and “F” rating is on the insert (see the pics showing the gap ...

Nice template sort of. Waiting on support....

Nice template sort of. Waiting on support....

I got a Rockler Gift card for Christmas this past year (yay!), which means I finally had no excuse to not buy the State Park Font template set I have been wanting. And for the most part it was exactly what I was expecting. HOWEVER two issues… #1. Do NOT use the tempate in the manner shown by Rockler. Your router base WILL hang on it, and if you give too much pressure it can hop up and ram the bit through whatever is in the way. #2. The brass bushing that came with mine is defectiv...

Long story short, I have been trying to find a sub base plate to use on my routers, problem I always found was none would line up with my router, most of the ones i tried with pre drilled holes was they didn’t line up properly on my router, and if i attempted to drill new holes, there was little room for error. Low and behold I had two choices buy a different brand of router, or keep hunting. The hunt paid off. I finally found a sub base plate I can use in conjunction with my router. ...

The first part of this review is just focusing on the set up on the CRB 7 router jig attachment. Set up is pretty straightforward it’s not really that difficult to set up your router. I am using Ryobi router RE180Pl1G Plunge router. The only thing with this set up is they are assuming your router has the wing nuts for a straight edge already attached to your router, my router didn’t have them so I actually had to go to my local hardware store and buy some knobs. Now if you have...

Finger Joint Jig Hack

Finger Joint Jig Hack

03-25-2016 04:23 PM by SJ881 | 3 comments »

Just bought this Jig and Tried it Yesterday for the first time, Joint came out really nice. I watched a few Videos and READ the Directions First. Only thing that needed help was once on the Router table and adjusted, I could not get to the Adjustment hole for my router. I needed to raise the bit a little and had to remove the jig,adjust the bit then Re-adjust the finger joint jig before Starting. Did a little research last night and this was suggested! DUH! (slaps Forehead!) used a pi...

RTJ-400 Dovetail Jig review

RTJ-400 Dovetail Jig review

03-05-2016 02:26 PM by Jarrhead | 7 comments »

Working on a dresser for my daughter. I decided to do the drawers with dovetail joints. Let me preface with what I am about to say with the facts that I never owned a dovetail jig, and I have never cut dovetails by hand. I have a very close friend who has a Rockler dovetail jig, and he graciously offered to let me use it. Meanwhile, I kinda had my eye on purchasing the Leigh RTJ400 jig. Well the dresser project got around to the point where I had to get to work on the drawers, but I hadn...

Precision Mid-Size Plunge Base and Edge Guide

Precision Mid-Size Plunge Base and Edge Guide

11-27-2015 03:33 PM by RogerBean | 8 comments »

Micro-Fence plunge base w/edge fence This is the nicest, most precise, best machined, smoothest operating, meticulously designed, all round good-looking router plunge base I’ve ever encountered. It’s also the most expensive. You can buy a complete Festool router for less than this base and fence. That doesn’t imply that you should. I ordered one of the Micro Fence “package deals” which included the model that fits my Bosch Colt variable speed trim router plus the fence assembly the co...
