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...

Great Starter Routing Table

Great Starter Routing Table

12-22-2011 12:09 AM 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...

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. Th...

Milescraft 1207 Router Design Inlay Kit

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, ...

I expect good customer service when I am trying to buy something from a company but this week I dealt with two companies that went above and beyond anything I could ask for.I was looking for a particular router bit and couldn’t find it locally and if they ordered it they told me to expect up to a two week wait. I found the bit I was looking for on Whiteside’s website but a notation in their catalog said it was not for the use I intended. I called Whiteside to find out why and was ...

Router Dust Collection That Works!

Router Dust Collection That Works!

06-01-2011 05:48 PM 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...

"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...

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...

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

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...
