At the woodworking show in NJ a couple weeks ago I bought the show promo kit which included the large table, steel stand, fence, micro adjuster, caster, switch, two feather-boards, and a flip-stop. It totaled $593.85. It was back-ordered when they sold to me, but they actually got it to me much faster then they had hoped (which was a nice surprise). Finally had a chance to start putting it together, so wanted to post some feedback, for anyone who is interested in possibly getting one. Righ...

Good jig but not perfect

Good jig but not perfect

07-22-2011 10:24 PM by slash51 | 3 comments »

I was recently at my local Woodcraft and they only had a display model so I was reluctant to buy but i went ahead and bit the bullet and bought it anyways. The price was $399 which was $50 less and I didnt have to pay for shipping or wait for it to come in the mail. So after making sure they had all the parts that came with it which they did I went ahead and bought it. I got it home and had to do some adjusting to get it to fit my router (Ridgid plunge) which was easy enough. The only thing a...

Good starter table.

Good starter table.

03-01-2008 02:02 AM by kshipp | 4 comments »

I got this router table as part of a combo with this router. My previous router table was all molded plastic and had a significant bow in the table making it useless. This table is nice for a starter table but it doesn’t have a lot of the high end features. The fence is very adjustable with the ability to move the out feed side independently and also slide the sides to cover the bit hole. There is a 2 1/2” dust extraction port on the back which I haven’t used because the ...

Freud router bit broke into 3 pieces.

Freud router bit broke into 3 pieces.

06-25-2015 10:06 PM by Julian | 23 comments »

I used this 3/8” up spiral bit for over a year when making mortises for a gate (in redwood).This bit did not get used very much. Supposedly it is solid carbide.Recently I was routing slots for a jig in a medium dense wood using my router table.When I was nearly finished I heard a bang and discovered the bit broke into 3 pieces.These router bits are not cheap; over $50. I emailed Freud twice on from their website about thisand to find out if they warranty the bits. No response after 3...

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

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

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 ̵...

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...

The plate is flat (for now), but the twist lock rings aren't

The plate is flat (for now), but the twist lock rings aren't

01-14-2014 03:48 AM by jakep_82 | 9 comments »

I bought the 3-1/4 HP Triton router at a woodworking show a couple months ago. It included this plate and I decided to buy the additional insert rings at the same time. I finally finished building my router table and when I started using it I quickly realized it wasn’t flat. I could feel the part dipping in the middle as I ran them through the router. This was confirmed by the curved cuts that it produced. I pulled the plate and checked the inserts with a feeler gauge. The blank i...

Whiteside Combination Compression Bit

Whiteside Combination Compression Bit

12-16-2014 11:46 PM by longgone | 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...

Almost gave it one star

Almost gave it one star

I ordered this set back in August when Rockler had a sale goin on. I didn’t get to use it until late September. The first three bowls went good, but on bowl number four the bearing seized up and left a deep burn mark in my bowl. I was furious to say the least. It was Sunday night so I had time to cool off before calling Rockler to complain. The nice lady at Rockler said she would contact CMT and have then send me a new one. When I told her that I needed it to finish bowls for a cr...

Solidly built, great case.  Nothing cheap and plasticy about this

Solidly built, great case. Nothing cheap and plasticy about this

Typical Woodpeckers solid device, here. It’s a corner jig for rounded corners, as well as a chamfer jig for corners. There are 12 different sizes for rounded corners, from 1/4” to 1-1/2”, and 6 different sizes for chamfered corners, from 1/4” to 1-1/2” The jig is solidly milled out of aluminum, with generous tabs for clamping to your workpiece, as well as a solid stable surface for your router to rest on. I was able to easily rout corners in a variety o...
