Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

09-16-2011 11:37 PM by NiteWalker | 7 comments »

I bought one of these bushing sets way back before woodcraft rebranded all their in house products as woodriver. That set has performed flawlessly over the years. A few things I love about the set is the variety of included sizes, the fact that they’re brass and won’t work loose as easily as steel bushings can, and that all the rims of the guides protrude less than 1/4” so 1/4” template material can be used. I recently bought another set because they’re on ...

Best Bang for the buck.

Best Bang for the buck.

08-28-2011 05:38 AM by Dedvw | 4 comments »

I received this router table with stand for $140 bucks delivered to my door. I was hesistant because there are not a lot of reviews on this table and the low price, but I needed a simple table to get some craft fair projects completed. I ended up being competely impressed when I opened the box. It came to my door in fantastic condition about 3 days after I placed my order. Assembly was very easy and straightforward. I took about an hour and only had 3 different bolts for assembly. 95 perce...

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...

Whiteside Router Inlay Kit

Whiteside Router Inlay Kit

07-02-2011 07:36 AM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I could not be more satisfied with this inlay kit from Whiteside. I have read the complaints about other brands, how they are tough to center. Rest assured, the Whiteside comes with a 1/4” centering pin. The bit is a standard 1/4” shank – no reducer sleeve to mess with. The bit is a solid carbide down spiral cutter. It is sharp and cuts cleanly in oak and walnut. The bit also comes with a protective case – a nice touch. I have read reviews of other brands that ...

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...

Skil 91024 24-Piece Carbide Router Bit Set

Skil 91024 24-Piece Carbide Router Bit Set

05-24-2011 03:53 AM by BentheViking | 8 comments »

So I just got these off of Amazon. I know that they are not the highest quality set, but they were better than what I had (nothing). I have used Skil bits before and while they certainly not the best, they have always gotten the job done for me. Again for the price (less than $45) it was hard to say no. Mostly I wanted to make this post because when trying to research this set I could not find anything anywhere regarding what is included in this set and I figured now that I have it in my h...

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

05-16-2011 01:20 AM 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...

JessEm Router Lift II

JessEm Router Lift II

04-30-2011 03:32 PM 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...

Just what I needed.

Just what I needed.

03-31-2011 08:08 AM by Tedstor | 4 comments »

A couple years back, I bought two craftsman routers off CL. One came with a fixed base and the other came with a fixed and plunge base. In spite of the bad “press” crfatsman often receives, these tools have treated me well.However, there is one legit shortcoming that I have found. The router accessory world basically revolves around Porter Cable, and Craftsman is no where to be found. This became especially apparent after I bought a HF dovetail jig and needed a baseplate bushing s...

Porter Cable Dovetail Jig is Sturdy and Easy to Adjust.

Porter Cable Dovetail Jig is Sturdy and Easy to Adjust.

03-31-2011 03:00 AM by pintodeluxe | 11 comments »

The 4210 dovetail jig is easy to use, and the template is thick aluminum. Most other jigs in the $100 price range seem flimsy or use plastic templates. I was impressed how large and heavy this jig is. The included dovetail jig and bushing let you get right to work – no more trips to the specialty woodworking stores. The bit is carbide tipped, and very sharp. It is 1/2” shank and cuts effortlessly. I found the jig in stock at Lowes. By by 4th try I was cutting perfect doveta...
