Acurate, Fast and Easy.

I have needed a way to set up my router fence and router bits in relationship to the fence. It seemed like the reversible glue joint bit, or lock miter bit were such great promise, only to have so much time wasted trying to hit the seemingly impossible perfect alignment of the joint parts. I had more success with the reversible glue joint bits, but still I would end up sanding to get it “right” and not really happy with the end result. Then I read a “Fine WoodworkingR...

Ryobi straight router bits, set of 4, suck

Ryobi straight router bits, set of 4, suck

747 days ago by CplSteel | 37 comments »

I think cheap tools have a place. I have 2 very nice kitchen knives and a few crap knives; i use them for different things. So i needed a bit to rough out a curve and using a router on a swing arm seemed to make sense, so I picked up these bits. I expected them to leave a rough edge, I expected them to be less than scary sharp, I expected them to do their job just not to be great about it. I was wrong, turns out red oak beat that bit silly. By my math, this bit made 4 36” passes ...

Woodpeckers Side Winder Router Lift SW350

Woodpeckers Side Winder Router Lift SW350

802 days ago by Chris Cook | 11 comments »

This all started with the idea of designing and building my own router lift. I researched what people were doing and found a ton of really cool ideas. I looked at quite a few of the commercial router lifts and just wasn’t ready to pony up $350-$500. During my research I came across the Woodpeckers SW350 router. As it was $239 on Amazon, it kept coming to mind as the solution. So, I figured that I would go ahead and get it. If it’s junk, it goes back to Amazon.Well, it certainly isn’t ...

Leigh's Mortice and Tennon Jig

Leigh's Mortice and Tennon Jig

843 days ago by thedude50 | 8 comments »

The mortise and tenon joint is a staple of woodworking. Creating them can pose a few challenges. Building a custom jig with the size and orientation of the joints is fine if you only need a single size and shape. But if you find yourself making several jigs to cover the varied m&t joints in even a single project then a variable jig is something you should consider. The Leigh Jigs Super FMT Mortise and Tenon jig is a very nice answer to this challenge. The joints are created by using an...

MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

892 days ago 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...

Great quality and customer service so far....

Great quality and customer service so far....

898 days ago by willy66 | 2 comments »

At the woodworking show in NJ a couple weeks ago I bought the show promo kit which included the large table, steel stand, fence, micro adjuster, caster, switch, two feather-boards, and a flip-stop. It totaled $593.85. It was back-ordered when they sold to me, but they actually got it to me much faster then they had hoped (which was a nice surprise). Finally had a chance to start putting it together, so wanted to post some feedback, for anyone who is interested in possibly getting one. Righ...

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

909 days ago by Pete_Jud | 6 comments »

Received this today, and mounted it up to a PC 690 D handle router. It’s kind of one of my “go to” routers in the shop. It was thicker than I expected, with a larger hole to be able to use larger bits than the Rockler clear insert that I had been using on this router, so it will not be able to use standard PC insert guides, and that”s ok with me as I have other plates to use. The laser was “dead nuts” on using a 45 V grove bit, But the feature I like the...

Great new router bit for your collection

Great new router bit for your collection

910 days ago by T. D. Reid | 18 comments »

This is a great bit that I am using to make Arts and Craft style legs with so that they show quarter sawn white oak on all four sides. The instructions also say that you can use it to build boxes or make drawers but I have not attempted these procedures. The bit comes in two sizes one for use on stock 1/2 -3/4 of an inch and the one I purchased for use on 3/8 – 1/2 inch stock. Now during the set up I did not realize that the bit that I had purchased was meant for use on the thinner stoc...

40 Piece Tool Shop Router Bit Set

40 Piece Tool Shop Router Bit Set

925 days ago by Raymond | 11 comments »

For Christmas my mom got me a 40 piece Tool Shop router bit set. I know what your thinking you get what you pay for. And for the most part that is true. This was an exception. 40 piece carbide tip ¼ shank router bits in every shape and size. Ball bearings on the top and bottom of some bits all run smooth. I tested all the bits and all are sharp and true out of the box no wobble or any defects that I can detect. They came in a nice wooden case with easy access to the bits. This was on sale fo...
