Best Bang For My Woodworking Buck

Best Bang For My Woodworking Buck

11-30-2009 02:06 AM by MKLowman | 7 comments »

I have been working on my basement bar and needed a way to hide a steel column that I bulit my bar around. I decided to try a fluted column. Problem is that the bar is being made of cherry and I never made a fluted column in my life. I researched it, but it seemed to be akin to rocket science. That is until I came across a recent issue of Woodsmith that featured DRL’s fluted column jig. For $30 bucks I figured it was worth a shot (even better since the owner gave us Woodjocks a $...

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

09-03-2010 03:54 AM by PoppyJo | 7 comments »

Hi to all my fellow Woodpeckers, I just received my set of 8 Locking Rings for the PRL V2. I’m very impressed with the lift, but a little disappointed with the Locking Rings. They don’t look like some of the pictures and are very hard to read (have to catch the light just right). So an easy solution is to use “White Out” over all the recessed lettering, let dry and clean up using mineral spirits, now thats makes my job a little easier. The White Out is pretty tough ...

Freud Adjustable (Ogee) rail and Stile Bit Set

Freud Adjustable (Ogee) rail and Stile Bit Set

06-28-2010 08:46 PM by Drew | 7 comments »

Nice set of bits.I paid $120, about $20 more then the non-adjustable set. Pros:-Quality cut. Very nice, clean, single pass cut. Better then my Grizzly (purple set).-Versatile. I will leave the details to Freud Cons:-Directions. I had to go online (not to Freud, but to Woodcraft) to find instructions. Even then the instructions are not as detailed as I would have liked. I wish they would show you how many shims to use to achieve a certain width groove. Not just “and shims a...

Milescraft 1207 Router Design Inlay Kit

Milescraft 1207 Router Design Inlay Kit

07-02-2010 06:48 PM by ChunkyC | 7 comments »

I purchased the Milescraft 1207 Router Design Inlay Kit because a friend wants me to inlay the Wisconsin “Running W” logo into a lid for him. The kit comes complete with everything that you need to get started routing inlays. I had to make a trip to the hardware store for M4×12 pan head screws to mount the universal base plate to my Freud router. It comes with 7” Universal Base Plate with the Turnlock system, three guide bushing, 4 templates with multiple cutouts, ...

Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

09-16-2011 11:37 PM by NiteWalker | 7 comments »

I bought one of these bushing sets way back before woodcraft rebranded all their in house products as woodriver. That set has performed flawlessly over the years. A few things I love about the set is the variety of included sizes, the fact that they’re brass and won’t work loose as easily as steel bushings can, and that all the rims of the guides protrude less than 1/4” so 1/4” template material can be used. I recently bought another set because they’re on ...

This is a note to DynaBlue from the inventor: I read your review of the General Tools Mortise and Tenon Jig and wish to thank you for your expert review and analysis. If possible, I would like to be able to call DB and speak to him privately on some of the details, if you would please give me a way to call him.I am particularly interested because I am the inventor and patent holder of this tool, so I want you to know that your criticism is completely fair and accurate and, as the designer, bu...

MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

03-18-2012 11:04 PM by SouthpawCA | 7 comments »

Having very limited space in my garage workshop I finally broke down and purchased MLCS’ Cast Iron Router Table Extension. This table replaces a Bench Dog table and a Rockler table. It’s mounted on your table saw replacing one of the existing cast iron extensions. The cast iron table is very heavy as my UPS guy will attest to. It came securely packaged and well oiled. After cleaning off the oil I removed the existing TS extension, in my case it was the left side of the tabl...

You get what you pay for

You get what you pay for

Here’s a set I received as a gift. Most of the bits I have yet to use. A few have been used a few times. If you are only going to use these bits at most a few times each and not demanding great results then OK. But if you need quality results and don’t want to play games with something just to use it then pass on them. The case they come in is durable and each bits location is labeled with an image of the bit shape so that is a positive. The second picture I included shows...

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

Akeda Works Like Magic

Akeda Works Like Magic

Okay when the hype of a new tool is gone, and the dust has settled… here is a review of an older Akeda dovetail jig. This may be a moot point, but hey you might find one on ebay. I have used four different types of dovetail jigs including Porter Cable, Leigh, and an off-brand jig. I felt comfortable with making dovetails, so flipping through the manual was not a big deal. Put the clamp in the correct position, snap in the guide fingers and dust chute and you are ready to rout. CL...
