More Freud Junk

201 days ago by mcase | 13 comments »

Don’t Confuse this with the previous posting on Freud Junk. This a different Lumberjock with his own Freud Junk story. It was funny logging on to find another member just posted about this. I guess I’m not alone in my recent sad experience with Freud. Let me start by saying that I own dozens of Freud router bits and several of their door making sets. I have used Freud products for years and have been completely satisfied with all the Freud products I have ever owned until no...

Expensive Junk

Expensive Junk

203 days ago by colvinatch | 30 comments »

I bought this bit as part of a three bit set for $75.00 and had high expectations after reading about their revolutionary four blade cutting bits. I put this cove and bead bit in and after the first cut (which was smooth) one of the blades split and separated from the bit and buried itself into my router table fence. What is most troublesome of all is the fact that I communicated this to Freud with no response in over two weeks, not only does Freud have terrible quality control, now ad non-...

Santa helped make up my mind for me this year.

Santa helped make up my mind for me this year.

I’m the type of guy that looks at something forever before actually buying it. The plunge base for my Bosch Colt trim router is no different. Thankfully I have a wife that works hand-in-hand with Santa and together they made the choice for me. Out of the box, the plunge base’s fit and finish is spot on and the feel is solid and comfortable in the hand. I immediately took it out to the shop for a test run on a project I’m working on. The motor slides into the plunge ba...

Router Table Safety Accessory

Router Table Safety Accessory

This is a new product offered by JessEm for the router table and fit a standard 1/4” T slot. The rollers are angled at 5 degrees to steer the material towards the fence. The bearing are have a unique one way roller needle bearing that only allows the rollers to rotate in the direction the material is being fed. Adjustment is quite simple with just a matter of rotating the knurled nob and applying some downward pressure. A 1/4 in hex key can be used to lock them in place if doing lon...

A very accurate safety device.  A Must Have!

A very accurate safety device. A Must Have!

237 days ago by MHarper90 | 14 comments »

The Purpose: So I do most of my woodworking at work because we have a pretty nice shop there. In late September of this year I was routing a 1/2” deep x 2” wide flute into a piece of wood when the workpiece was shot across the room and my left hand was thrown into the router bit. After a trip to the ER and emergency hand surgery with a skin graft, I was very fortunate in that I only lost 3mm of bone and approximately 5mm of total length off of the end of my left thumb (I st...

Solidly built, great case.  Nothing cheap and plasticy about this

Typical Woodpeckers solid device, here. It’s a corner jig for rounded corners, as well as a chamfer jig for corners. There are 12 different sizes for rounded corners, from 1/4” to 1-1/2”, and 6 different sizes for chamfered corners, from 1/4” to 1-1/2” The jig is solidly milled out of aluminum, with generous tabs for clamping to your workpiece, as well as a solid stable surface for your router to rest on. I was able to easily rout corners in a variety o...

You get what you pay for

You get what you pay for

Here’s a set I received as a gift. Most of the bits I have yet to use. A few have been used a few times. If you are only going to use these bits at most a few times each and not demanding great results then OK. But if you need quality results and don’t want to play games with something just to use it then pass on them. The case they come in is durable and each bits location is labeled with an image of the bit shape so that is a positive. The second picture I included shows...

Whiteside Oval Edge Bit

Whiteside Oval Edge Bit

266 days ago by laketrout36 | 4 comments »

A new project called for a new router bit. Many members here on LumberJocks hold Whiteside router bits in high regard. This is the second Whiteside router bit I’ve bought this year and am once again completely satisfied with it. I’m currently making a small rustic cabin with log siding as a presentation/display/gift box. The Whiteside oval edge bit # 1476 is a 1/2” shank, 3/4” bead opening and met my requirements. Tonight I put it in the router and fed one board p...
