MLCS (Katana) Lock Miter Joint Router Bit (w/Addendum)

09-14-2017 08:16 PM by Andybb | 5 comments »

Not really sure if this is a blog or a review or both. I don’t usually write reviews but I had such a good experience with this that I thought I would. Some background…. I needed to make some professional looking joints for some jewelry box drawer carcasses I was making with 1/2” stock. Someone suggested the Rockler Miter Fold Dado Set but at $350 it seemed a little spendy. That put me on to the Infinity Jr. Lock Miter bit for $70 plus another $10 for the setup bl...

Works well but is made of cheap junk that breaks easily

Works well but is made of cheap junk that breaks easily

09-11-2017 04:04 AM by iminmyshop | 3 comments »

Routers kick up a dust storrn that is both annoying and unhealthy. So when I saw a video for Oneida’s new router dust shroud I was excited and immediately bought one. It worked well but the plastic it is made of is so flimsy that the shroud popped out with use. Later, on the first day of use, part of the shroud cracked when the router was set on its side (gently). The sad part is that when it was working, the shroud was very effective. Another problem is that the recess for the...

Onieda Air Systems Dust-Free Router hood

Onieda Air Systems Dust-Free Router hood

06-29-2017 02:07 PM by HassanMirza | 5 comments »

I acquired a Oneida Air Systems router hood, let me start of by saying that I am fan of the Cyclone, I have it on my modified Harbor Freight Dust Collector. I work in a smaller basement shop and as many of us know when flush trimming with the router makes a huge mess! I am in the middle of a project and I needed to do flush trim plywood. When I got the Router hood and I attached it to my Dewalt DW618, which was a very simple process. I really wasn’t sure what to expect, but hooked up a ...

Good cabinet. A couple small mistakes

Good cabinet. A couple small mistakes

05-05-2017 05:25 PM by jklingel | 7 comments »

Last year I bought Norm’s plans for his updated router cabinet and built it recently. Overall, it is a very nice cabinet, but there are a couple of small things I don’t think are right, or could be tweaked. You may want to keep them in mind when/if you use his plans. For one, the plans say to drill a 2” hole in the back of the cabinet for a 2” PVC exhaust pipe. You need a 2 3/8” hole for 2” pipe. Unfortunately, when I saw the mistake on the hole size it did...

Bench Dog Router setup - Inconsistent Quality

Bench Dog Router setup - Inconsistent Quality

04-09-2017 01:51 PM by EarlS | 10 comments »

It’s been a year since I ordered the Bench Dog Promax RT Cast Iron router table, Pro Fence, ProLift, and steel cabinet. Rather than review on each component I decided to review the entire set up since the Bench Dog sells it as a complete set up. The complete set up is $1000 on Rockler. First off – this thing is a beast. The table top weighs in at 100 lbs and the router lift with my 3-1/4 HP Porter Cable Router weighs 35 lbs or more. The cabinet weighs 40 lbs or more. D...

ER Router Collets.  Beautifully machined and designed

ER Router Collets. Beautifully machined and designed

03-09-2017 05:35 PM by zzzzdoc | 4 comments »

I’m amazingly impressed by these router collets that I just purchased as replacements for the stock collets on my Porter Cable 7518 router. I wanted to step up the precision of my setup, as the stock Porter Cable collets had more runout than I desired. So after hearing about these ER collets sold by Precisebits.com, I purchased ones in 1/4” and 1/2” size. I’m not sure how little runout these collets have. I can’t measure anything that small. I find none ...

Useless with Triton TRA-001

Useless with Triton TRA-001

02-07-2017 06:21 PM by eldercop | 17 comments »

For $60 one would think Rockler would include all the necessary holes. Not so. Catalog, web site and sales person identify this aluminum plate (#59466) as suitable for Triton’s big bad boy. Get it home and there’s no hole for height winder. A call back to the store where the helpful guy opened two other boxes with same item and same story. He kicks the issue up to the assistant manager whom I call back a couple days later and he is less than helpful. “So drill a hole for it ...

Woodpeckers Coping Sled - easy to use, but could use a few tweaks

Woodpeckers Coping Sled - easy to use, but could use a few tweaks

01-01-2017 12:19 AM by Mike_D_S | 10 comments »

First off, let me say I don’t have a lot of experience with different models of coping sleds. I’ve used a homemade one and the Rockler sled my buddy has. I had a WC gift card that I got for Xmas burning a hole in my pocket and had agreed to make a couple of dozen beaded panel cabinet doors for a kitchen remodel for a small farm house at my parent’s place. So when I saw the WP coping sled, I decided to pull the trigger as I had an immediate project. After getting it ho...

Always wanted a top quality router table and now I have one with all the bells and whistles. The table and all machined parts are all expertly made. I installed a Porter Cable 3.25 Hp. Router in the lift and when everything is hooked up to the two dust collection ports ( 4” under table and 2.5” on the fence ) there is virtually no dust at all. An excellent addition to my shop.
