Having too many beers, Amazon Prime and one touch ordering on my Amazon account resulted in my delivery of the DELTA 34-184 Universal-Deluxe Tenoning Jig this Sunday morning.So onto the rant….umm? I mean review. Unboxing and light assembly, this jig seemed pretty decent, until I put it on my saw. Holy shit did it wobble! The bottom plate is a 3/8 cast iron plate with weight reduction recesses underneath it. And the surface is not machined at all, but instead finished with a heavy on...

Sawstop epic fail with UPS in close second

Sawstop epic fail with UPS in close second

03-26-2016 04:59 AM by mummykicks | 18 comments »

So I’d love to offer an detailed review of my new sawstop sliding crosscut table with my brand new pcs, except it appears impossible to get one shipped to my residence intact. The saw I got, no issues, crosscut table, not so much. The first one came in a box that looked like it was dropped of the back of a truck, multiple times and had been run over for good measure. UPS sucks, I thought. Open it up and the corners of the table and the fence were dinged, like you would expect if you ...

Expensive but Useful

Expensive but Useful

02-28-2016 01:32 AM by edwood1975 | 10 comments »

So I purchased this because of a couple of reasons: I am tired of spending a lot of money on trim and molding at the the big box stores and I have started to make my own on the router table easy!!!!!! BUT when it came to cutting 1/4” -1/2” strips of a larger piece I felt very uncomfortable and unsafe ripping these dimensions on my TS.. On top of this need I have been bombarded with magazine articles and TV commercial promoting this product and I decided that I would see what...

Happy Camper No. 2,17685 (give or take a few)

Happy Camper No. 2,17685 (give or take a few)

02-09-2016 07:34 PM by Kelly | 5 comments »

I’ve primarily used this for mortised and tenoned frame corners for a kitchen (cuts done with the styles and rails at ninety degrees to the table) and splined corners (cuts done with frame corners at twenty-two and a half to forty-five degrees to the table). The results are, I am very pleased with my purchase. This is a lot of jig for the money. Just lifting it makes clear the fact it’s not a toy. I believe this tenon jig will provide years of service. Though another reviewe...

Making Good Box Joints Easily and Repeatable

Making Good Box Joints Easily and Repeatable

02-09-2016 07:16 PM by Kelly | 1 comment »

I’ve been woodworking, both professionally and as a hobbyist, since 1974. Over those years, my appreciation of the value of jigs has continued to increase. For example, using a circle cutting jig on my band saw allowed me to cut precision circles ranging from a couple inches to three feet in diameter. Box joints, or finger joints, make for strong joints and can add aesthetic value to a project. Laying out multiple box joints, individually cutting them and getting good, tight joints t...

A great dado set..

Since I purchased my rigid tablesaw I have been really trying to advance my knowledge of exactly what a TS can do and I figured joinery techniques was a good a place as any.. In in the middle of the design phase of creating mitre saw station and I think the doors will be mortise and tennon joinery anyway I have been practicing with this set.. The Pros:Really like the quality of the blades,chippers and spacers.. I like how easy it is for a beginner like me to align everything in the s...

General International 50-200r with Excaliber 40-070EK Router Table add-on

General International 50-200r with Excaliber 40-070EK Router Table add-on

12-28-2015 08:42 PM by gotnonickname | 3 comments »

I did a review of the 50-200R awhile back and I still have nothing but positive things to say about this saw. I did upgrade the fence to an after market design that has worked flawlessly. The big item I want to remind users of this Super Cool Tools fence rail build is to take you time when making the rails and make sure you use the Starrett measuring tape. Starrett tape is extremely accurate. The saw still is still dead nuts on and has not needed any adjustments. Now on the upgrade. Since my ...

Biesemeyer Fence Major Disappointment

Biesemeyer Fence Major Disappointment

09-24-2015 04:25 PM by Hawk_Guy | 36 comments »

So I finally pulled the trigger on a Biesemeyer table saw fence, the Rolls Royce of fence systems. I will preface this with the statement that I must be the most unlucky consumer on the market or the tool industry has gone to total crap. For those of you who have read my reviews in the past you may be thinking I’m some sort of internet troll out to bad mouth manufacturers. I’ll be frank, if the product is good then I’ll rave about it but if the product stinks I’m go...

Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

08-14-2015 12:30 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 6 comments »

I needed to increase the cutting capacity of my table saw and last fall I bought a Vega Pro 50 fence system. I originally wanted to get a Biesemeyer, but I really need both my legs and both my arms. My table saw is a Rigid 2424. I wanted to use the fence for a while before writing a review. I have put it through the paces and the following is my take on the fence. Aftermarket fences can be really expensive and may require a good amount of modifications to your table saw. That was not ...

Should have gotten this a long time ago

Should have gotten this a long time ago

07-21-2015 12:29 PM by whope | 12 comments »

The old Sears Craftsman TS *circa early 90’s) I have really doesn’t have a riving knife. Bought a Zero Clearance Insert a few years ago. Usually don’t have a problem with pinching with oak. Started ripping some poplar and the first cut pinched really hard and I stopped and ordered the Micro Jig (as the nearest retailer is a bit of a drive). I waited a whole week before installing it. Not sure why, other than I didn’t have a suitable scrap of 1/2” MDF to use. B...
