Non-slip router mat - Sometimes little things make a difference

Non-slip router mat - Sometimes little things make a difference

07-23-2008 07:07 AM by Llarian | 11 comments »

I have to admit, I feel a little silly writing a review for what’s basically a heavy duty carpet pad. However, as a new woodworker who doesn’t have luxurys like a workbench with a tail vice and bench dogs, sometimes the little things can make a huge difference. Using a router is a little difficult if your workpiece keeps sliding around, not to mention dangerous. This thing really solves the problem. Throw it on top of your tablesaw, put your workpiece on top of it, and go to...

Classical Plunge Bit Failure.

Classical Plunge Bit Failure.

09-26-2015 09:12 AM by robscastle | 11 comments »

An interesting situation occured when I was making Edna’s Kitchen Benches. I was routing a profile in the length of the leg when whilst using a Mustarka Router bit I routed over or through a knot.This knot completely totalled my new router bit in one pass. History: This was a brand new unused bit and very similar profile to Photo 1 it was a 1/4 shank, 19mm dia but a 3.2 radius. The profile on the bit is similar to the I have posted in photo No 1. (from what I can see the only ...

"Professional" Woodworker Router Bit Set

"Professional" Woodworker Router Bit Set

05-08-2013 05:02 AM by rivox1 | 27 comments »

Hello Jocks, As a beginner woodworker I needed a set of router bits, but didn’t want to take on a second mortgage to be able to afford a premium set, so I decided to buy this bit set in order to try out different bits. My line of thinking was to see which ones I used the most so that I could buy one by one the most indispensable ones of a better quality. I picked up this set for a little over $100. It contains 75 pieces and at first glance looks really nice. On my daily vocabul...

Anyone Looking For Some Cheap Tail?

Anyone Looking For Some Cheap Tail?

01-09-2011 02:31 AM by DaveTPilot | 9 comments »

When I first saw this jig advertised I said, ”$34.99 are you kidding me? It’s got to be a piece of *#@&!” I had never used a dovetail jig before but heard some horror stories from people who have used some of the “cheap” jigs. I looked at a few videos online and from what I could tell, for less than 35 bucks with a dovetail bit included, the EZ Pro Dovetail Jig was worth a try. The jig comes with a dovetail bit and a spacer for making joints in stock wide...

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 Starter Routing Table

Great Starter Routing Table

12-22-2011 12:09 AM by brtech | 6 comments »

If you need a decent quality routing table, a build it yourself option just isn’t right now, this is your choice. I’ve looked around, and this is the best value. Easy transaction and fast delivery from Griz. Picked up a coupon that helped some. It’s a heavy box, well packed. Typical Griz manual, with one exception, see below. Basically, you assemble rails to the bottom of the table top, assemble the legs to those rails and add the braces to the middle of the leg...

Leigh R9 Plus Dovetail Jig initial impressions

Leigh R9 Plus Dovetail Jig initial impressions

01-23-2012 07:50 AM by Jake Willet | 5 comments »

New on the market from Leigh is a consumer friendly dovetail jig. Assembly takes an hour. The instructions tell you to use 5/8” mdf. I had a hell of a time finding this and ended up stealing it from the top of a rolling tool cabinet at work. The beam assembly was pretty straightforward. 8/4 beam and 5/8” mdf. The way you have to use this necessitates using 5/8” material as a backer board. I cut 12 backer boards. I used 1 for an initial test. The jig worked great and...

Disclaimer: I’m not a professional reviewer and these opinions are mine and mine alone! Retail Price: $149.99 I first saw this jig in magazine adverts about two months ago and have had a couple people ask me about the jig, but I hadn’t actually seen one until last night. I was able to procure the jig, spent last night reading the directions and checking out the General Tools Website videos, and today I tested the jig over several hours with the following results.

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...
