Well you could get by without them. $15 a pair from Rockler. What the heck are they? They hold aux. fences and stopblocks to your existing rip fence, for crosscutting and dado operations where the blade would otherwise obliterate your existing fence. Just rip a piece of ply, melamine, or other stable stock, drill two holes for the clamps, and clamp away. The biesemeyer aux. fences with clamps are around $150. The only advantage I see is that their fence is exactly 1” thic...

Rock solid Rockler tenoning jig

Rock solid Rockler tenoning jig

03-18-2008 06:08 AM by GusRod | 18 comments »

I’ve used shop made wood and metal tenoning jigs before but this one far exceeded my expectations. The tool is as hefty as they come but glides along the miter slot as if it was on a cushion of air. It’s clamp is strong enough to easily hold three foot 4×4’s for a blacksmith workbench I made recently and it’s various adjustments make it ideal for accurate cuts on cabinet and furniture work. I highly recommend this tool and at around sixty five dollars it is well w...

Best Option I've Found

Best Option I've Found

01-07-2018 01:41 PM by EarlS | 18 comments »

I read an article written by a hand surgeon for Popular Woodworking. “In the hundreds of table saw injuries I’ve seen, I’ve yet to see an amputation from a table saw with an appropriate blade guard and splitter. There have never been many good reasons to remove the guard; now with better-designed saws, guards and riving knives, there are even fewer. I’ve seen woodworkers injured on the “backstroke” as they bring a hand back over an unprotected blade after a cut, those who didn’t see ...

The best table saw (and shop) accessory I have ever owned

The best table saw (and shop) accessory I have ever owned

02-26-2008 08:45 PM by RickH | 17 comments »

At the first woodworking show I attended years ago I became aware of the Incra table saw fence systems, and bought their first version almost 10 years ago. I upgraded to their LS system (lead-screw) about 4 years ago by purchasing a new postioner w/machined fence, which is even easier to use. What the Incra fence does is allow for precise and repeatable fence alignment on your table saw: > Precision – allows adjustments as fine as .001”, though their standard measuring meth...

Incra's 52inch LS positioner package!

Incra's 52inch LS positioner package!

12-21-2009 05:28 AM by BigBard | 17 comments »

One year ago I began the quest to make things from wood. I have learned so much in one year and I still have a long way to go. After a satisfying purchase of a Incra1000se miter gauge, I thought I couldn’t go wrong with this LS positioner plunge. I was right, this system cuts extremely accurate. That micro-adjust knob is excellent, you can move it by the thousands of an inch. You can truly move the fence with shear accuracy. The wonderfence did take a few extra steps to square up but it...

Incra LS - TS on ridgid 4512

Incra LS - TS on ridgid 4512

09-22-2013 03:35 AM by EMC | 17 comments »

About a month ago I purchased a Ridgid 4512 to replace my dw744. Although this is not intended to be a review of the 4512, I will say that I am quite pleased with it. Once I had it assembled and set up I went through it carefully and set up the blade, fence and miter slots to all be parallel and was able to achieve great accuracy (within a few hundredths) without a lot of trouble. I have read about the issue many have had with the blade shifting position as it goes up and down, but I h...

Micro Jig SteelPro Splitter - for 1/8" Kerf Blades

Micro Jig SteelPro Splitter - for 1/8" Kerf Blades

02-02-2010 05:41 PM by PetVet | 17 comments »

You can purchase this product from Incra for about $35. I was interested in getting a splitter that I would use, as my rip guard/splitter was a pain to install every time I wanted to rip something.It comes as a kit, with an installation jig, and several splitters of various widths. The instruction sheet was fairly easy to follow. You need a couple pieces of 1/2 inch stock, one for the jig to attach to, and one as a test piece. They have you drill the holes in your saw insert with the prov...

Rockler Table saw fence micro adjuster

Rockler Table saw fence micro adjuster

07-16-2010 02:30 AM by lilredweldingrod | 17 comments »

I bought the Rockler table saw fence micro adjuster on sale cheap with free shipping. That takes most of the sting out. Every time the handle gets bumped, even slightly, it falls a part. After regluing this cheaply made junk several times, I drilled and install a 8-32 screw and nut and peened the end at the nut to prevent it from backing off. It hasn’t broken since, but I do not leave it on the saw except when I need it. Save your money on this one. I’m sure there ar much better d...

Infinity Zero Clearance Throat Plate and insert for sawstop table saw

Infinity Zero Clearance Throat Plate and insert for sawstop table saw

12-15-2012 03:10 AM by mbs | 17 comments »

The sawstop zero clearance insert doesn’t have enough support towards the back of the blade therefore the insert dips down below the top of the table. When cutting narrow wood, the leading edge of the wood catches on the top of the table which isn’t a safe situation to be in.. I recently heard about the Infinity billet insert and ordered it the same day. I don’t have any relationship with Infinity. The insert is machined out of aluminum and has a very nice anodized ...
