All of the bolts, and other hardware was supplied and fit too :) Installation took about 25 minutes and required me to remove the left iron wing on my Delta table saw, but what makes thi...

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

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

2178 days ago 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...

Great Starter Routing Table

Great Starter Routing Table

931 days ago by brtech | 4 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...

Anyone Looking For Some Cheap Tail?

Anyone Looking For Some Cheap Tail?

1278 days ago 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

Milescraft 1207 Router Design Inlay Kit

1469 days ago 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, ...

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

1151 days ago by TechRedneck | 6 comments »

Being a weekend woodworker (some evenings too) my time is important. Most of the joinery I’ve done is the basic stuff.. Biscuits, dadoes, M&T and pocket hole. I wanted a system to make some nice jewelry boxes for my grandchildren and step up my work a notch without spending a ton of money on a bunch of dovetail jigs, and making a bunch of box joint jigs that take up room in the shop. The Incra system interested me. I watched the videos and thought the concept was interesting fr...

Router Dust Collection That Works!

Router Dust Collection That Works!

1135 days ago by TheDane | 12 comments »

When I bought my DeWalt DWP611PK router (which I love), I didn’t order any of the accessories for it. But, after such positive experiences with the router itself, I decided to give the accessories a shot as well. DeWalt offers four accessories for the DWP611PK … edge guides for both the fixed base and plunge base, as well as dust collection adapters for both. I haven’t had enough opportunity to use the edge guides (DNP618 for the fixed base, DW6913 for the plunge ba...

The new Mortise Pal:  an exceptional upgrade to an exceptional tool

The new Mortise Pal: an exceptional upgrade to an exceptional tool

1295 days ago by newTim | 14 comments »

Mortise Pal has re-designed their jig and the features are more than incremental. I’m an old fan of the MP jig having bought the first two models. I was real honored to be chosen by them to test their newest model. I started a blog about the test and now that I've been able to play around with the jig I will update it. There have been many excellent reviews of the first models posted here on LJs. For those not familiar with this tool, it is a router jig that facilitates perfectly...

JessEm Router Lift II

JessEm Router Lift II

1167 days ago by plantek | 8 comments »

I had been shopping around for a router lift for some time now and would drop when seeing the prices. Then I came across this: http://www.jessem.com/Router_Lift_II.html . I’ve had it for a couple months now and have been able to give a good once over. It is my first and only router lift I have ever used so I cannot compare it to another (hence the 4 stars). But I can say it is fantastic. It has changed my whole table router world for the better.Being in the metal fab business for the le...

MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

843 days ago 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...
