Great setup with repeatable results

Great setup with repeatable results

I have had the Mast-R-Lift II complete table system for about 6 or 7 monthes, and feel like it is time to do a review on it after using it extensivly. The package I got came with the stand, the table top, the fence, the mast-R-lift II router lift, power tek switch, reducing rings, and 4 parrallegram feather boards. To set up this whole system and get everything aligned took about 4 hours. The stand is very sturdy and made of thicker material than the run of the mill open angle iron stand. ...

Router table fence needs work to reach full potential

Router table fence needs work to reach full potential

11-09-2011 05:44 AM by GregD | 4 comments »

I have had the Woodpecker's Super Fence router table fence for a few years now. I got it as part of a router table/lift/fence/legs package, but I’m not going to review those other items here. My overall assessment is that the fence works very well, but only after what was for me a significant amount of tuning. For the price I thought it should have worked nearly flawlessly out of the box, so I’m only giving it two stars. As you can see from the picture, this is a split fen...

This is a note to DynaBlue from the inventor: I read your review of the General Tools Mortise and Tenon Jig and wish to thank you for your expert review and analysis. If possible, I would like to be able to call DB and speak to him privately on some of the details, if you would please give me a way to call him.I am particularly interested because I am the inventor and patent holder of this tool, so I want you to know that your criticism is completely fair and accurate and, as the designer, bu...

Harbor Freight Router Inlay Kit

Harbor Freight Router Inlay Kit

10-12-2011 08:11 PM by ChuckC | 9 comments »

I recently bought the Harbor Freight Inlay Kit. HF obviously doesn’t make it but there’s no other name on the package. I was looking at them from other stores and for $35 for the kit and even more for the templates I always passed it up. This one was $10 and I had a coupon that brought it down to $8. The HF one even adds a centering pin which was a nice touch and the bushing is solid brass. I still needed templates so I designed something quick in Sketchup and cut it out on the...

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...

Rockler Fluting Jig. It works

Rockler Fluting Jig. It works

09-30-2011 02:08 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

Saddled with the idea of making fluted casings for a bedroom and eventually for the rest of the house, I decided to splurge and pick up Rockler’s fluting jig. I must say that after a little practice on some scrap to get used to it then finishing off a bedroom, it works nicely. The Jig is well made. It is constructed of phenol ply and has knobs to tighten and adjust that have metal inserts. To make a flute you set your router in it and adjust the jig so that two rails ride on both si...

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.

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 ...
