rockler bench cookies

rockler bench cookies

12-08-2009 06:07 AM by kosta | 11 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on the rockler bench cookies. Now I got some of these about 4 weeks ago and they work pretty good. I have used them when I was sanding and the one thing I realized is that anything that is smaller than 8 in long and 7 in wide its a lot harder to control. You can get 4 bench cookies for $12 at rockler.com

10 piece Router Template Guide Set

10 piece Router Template Guide Set

03-11-2010 03:46 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 11 comments »

I have had this set for quite a few years now, & I highly recommend this set. It comes with an adapter, so if you want to make your own router plate, or table, it will be 100% accurate if installed correctly. The fine threaded nut makes for easy hand tightening, & I’ve never had them come loose. Fits any router that accepts standard 1-3/16” OD threaded guide bushing Machined solid brass construction Includes 7 template guides: 1/4” ID x 5/16” OD; 9/32” ID ...

Milescraft Sign Crafter

Milescraft Sign Crafter

Yo whats up everybody here is a review of the the Milescraft sign crafter. I have had the sign crafter for about 7 weeks and it works great. I did a video on the milescraft sign crafter in Episode 76 MIlescraft Sign Crafter. Its basically a jig that you use to cut signs with your router. You can cut signs up to 36 in long. Its important that the surface your router bit is referencing off of doesnt move or your not going to get an accurate cut. Once you clamp everything down the sign crafter ...

Porter Cable Dovetail Jig is Sturdy and Easy to Adjust.

Porter Cable Dovetail Jig is Sturdy and Easy to Adjust.

03-31-2011 03:00 AM by pintodeluxe | 11 comments »

The 4210 dovetail jig is easy to use, and the template is thick aluminum. Most other jigs in the $100 price range seem flimsy or use plastic templates. I was impressed how large and heavy this jig is. The included dovetail jig and bushing let you get right to work – no more trips to the specialty woodworking stores. The bit is carbide tipped, and very sharp. It is 1/2” shank and cuts effortlessly. I found the jig in stock at Lowes. By by 4th try I was cutting perfect doveta...

40 Piece Tool Shop Router Bit Set

40 Piece Tool Shop Router Bit Set

02-14-2012 04:50 AM by Raymond | 11 comments »

For Christmas my mom got me a 40 piece Tool Shop router bit set. I know what your thinking you get what you pay for. And for the most part that is true. This was an exception. 40 piece carbide tip ¼ shank router bits in every shape and size. Ball bearings on the top and bottom of some bits all run smooth. I tested all the bits and all are sharp and true out of the box no wobble or any defects that I can detect. They came in a nice wooden case with easy access to the bits. This was on sale fo...

Woodpeckers Side Winder Router Lift SW350

Woodpeckers Side Winder Router Lift SW350

06-17-2012 12:32 AM by Chris Cook | 11 comments »

This all started with the idea of designing and building my own router lift. I researched what people were doing and found a ton of really cool ideas. I looked at quite a few of the commercial router lifts and just wasn’t ready to pony up $350-$500. During my research I came across the Woodpeckers SW350 router. As it was $239 on Amazon, it kept coming to mind as the solution. So, I figured that I would go ahead and get it. If it’s junk, it goes back to Amazon.Well, it certainly isn’t ...

A brilliant invention for routers

A brilliant invention for routers

06-24-2013 03:25 AM by harry1 | 11 comments »

Yesterday under “projects” I posted a thread concerning my “discovery” of the MUSLECHUCK, which replaces the standard router chuck and only requires a half tun of an Allen key to lock in the bit securely. There has been such a BIG response that a member suggested that this may be a better place so as a comprise I suggest that all members who are into or contemplating learning about routing take a look at my original post which reached top 3 yesterday in the PROJECTS se...

I have been looking for a dovetail jig for the longest time and was looking at the leigh and the omni jig but I found out that you are limited. So I woent looking for one and found this one at homedepot for $40. Now I was a bit skeptical at first but when I got it home and used it for the first time after reading the manual and watching the dvd that is included, it is the easiest jig to use in my personal opinion. The only downside which I dont even consider a downside, so the only thing I wo...

Not the router lift to buy

Not the router lift to buy

03-05-2011 09:32 PM by misbeshavings | 10 comments »

I bought a Jointech router lift 2 years ago based on ratings I found in magazines – it was a “tool of the year” award winner. Within a year, the Wixey digital indicator quit zeroing. So much for the digital advantage. This year, the lift quit lifting. It was never really “smooth”, and I finally stripped the gears off of the incredibly poor engineered nylon gear that engages a large ring gear to accomplish the lift. Insult to injury, when I ordered a rep...

Empire Dry Lube Restores Velvety Action on Plunge Routers

Empire Dry Lube Restores Velvety Action on Plunge Routers

10-15-2012 09:01 PM by pintodeluxe | 10 comments »

My plunge router was starting to get a tad sticky after two years of regular use. Not binding heavily, but you could tell sawdust had found its way into the plunge rods. I gave the router a blast of compressed air to clear any dust, and applied a couple squirts of Empire dry lube. I worked the routers plunge several times to distribute the lubricant, then let it dry. Once dry, there was no evidence of the lubricant. No white residue, no oily appearance, just a restored plunge actin that ...
