Shop Fox D3118 Router Inlay Kit

”Cut perfect inlays with this Inlay Kit and your shop-made template. Simply slide on the bushing to rout the cutout and then remove the bushing to cut the perfectly matched inlay. Includes a 1/8” solid carbide spiral cutter and alignment pin. Fits Porter CableĀ® routers and other routers with template guide adapters.”Everything was there and fit my new Trend T4 just fine although there were two things that bothered me. #1 – the alignment pin is 8mm! (not 1/4”),...

Router bits Tounge and Groove and Panel bits

Router bits Tounge and Groove and Panel bits

11-27-2010 05:38 PM by Ken90712 | 4 comments »

I had purchased these sets a cpl of months ago at the Wood Working Show. I had watched the demo the year before and bought the videos as well. This year I took the plunge. I waited until I got a chance to use them before I wrote this review. The box they come in is a nice touch and it keeps them safe when not in use. However, we all know that doesn’t make the tool. The thing that I liked while watching the demos was that all there bits in a set are matched. Using their O-ring proces...

GREAT router lift !

GREAT router lift !

11-18-2010 07:29 PM by NBeener | 6 comments »

This really IS a review, so … I’m pointing to it. After spending a fair bit of time, making setup blocks out of UHMW, FOR my Amana glue joint router bit, I can honestly say that I LOVE this lift. The thread pitch and machining make precise dialing in operations—at thousandths of an inch—incredibly easy. Coupled with a height gauge, gauge blocks, or a good rule (I have a Pinnacle 12” that does the job, rather nicely), getting exact bit height is—relat...

Nice product, with a few gripes

Nice product, with a few gripes

11-02-2010 10:57 PM by Vrtigo1 | 8 comments »

Ordered this from Amazon.com about three months ago. The lift is impressive upon first inspection. The heft and quality of the fit and finish gives you the impression that it’s well built. This was replacing a regular JessEm router plate, so it was brain-dead easy to install – just remove the old plate, install the lift and then level it. This is where I ran into issues with the first lift. There are threaded through holes all the way around the plate, and you thread the supp...

1/2 lock miter router bit

1/2 lock miter router bit

10-19-2010 09:21 PM by Edward83 | 13 comments »

I saw this while looking through the router bits at Lowes. I never heard of of a lock miter router bit and feeling adventurous I decided to drop the thirty dollars for it in hopes of upping my abilities to build a better quality box. I read the instructions and set it up in my router table. The instructions suggest having a few pieces to practice on, and believe me they weren’t kidding. It says that you can use it on boards up to 3/4 in. but I would do it a little shy. The nature o...

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

09-03-2010 03:54 AM by PoppyJo | 7 comments »

Hi to all my fellow Woodpeckers, I just received my set of 8 Locking Rings for the PRL V2. I’m very impressed with the lift, but a little disappointed with the Locking Rings. They don’t look like some of the pictures and are very hard to read (have to catch the light just right). So an easy solution is to use “White Out” over all the recessed lettering, let dry and clean up using mineral spirits, now thats makes my job a little easier. The White Out is pretty tough ...

Milescraft Sign Crafter

Milescraft Sign Crafter

08-30-2010 09:40 AM by kosta | 11 comments »

Yo whats up everybody here is a review of the the Milescraft sign crafter. I have had the sign crafter for about 7 weeks and it works great. I did a video on the milescraft sign crafter in Episode 76 MIlescraft Sign Crafter. Its basically a jig that you use to cut signs with your router. You can cut signs up to 36 in long. Its important that the surface your router bit is referencing off of doesnt move or your not going to get an accurate cut. Once you clamp everything down the sign crafter ...

Great plate and easy to install

Great plate and easy to install

08-05-2010 04:20 PM by Vrtigo1 | 4 comments »

Let me start by saying that I bought this plate for my first router table, so I don’t have any frame of reference for comparing it to other products. With that being said, I was impressed with the quality of the plate and the cutout template. The price was right, at about $50 from Amazon. I was a little worried about getting a phenolic plate and the possibility of it warping when I hang my Hitachi M12V from it, but the plate feels very strong and stable. Only time will tell, but I...

Harbor Freight Dovetail jig

Harbor Freight Dovetail jig

07-26-2010 07:20 AM by Tim29 | 53 comments »

I have been wanting to get a dovetail jig for sometime now. I was up against a brick wall however. Do I fork over the bucks for a Porter Cable jig or do I buy a cheaper jig and see if it does the job for less money. I have tried this type of approach many times with many tools. Most of the time I have went on to pay for the better quality tool as well as the cheaper tool that did not work. This is not one of those times.I paid the $23 for the Harbor Freight Dovetail jig and it works pretty we...
