Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

07-29-2008 05:46 AM by Tim Dorcas | 14 comments »

In the past one of the things I hated to was rip thin pieces of wood. Typically this is done to create keys for mitered joints. Last December I was going to build a one of the many jigs that you can find online when Rockler came out with their Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig. For $20 I thought, “Why not?” It arrived about three weeks later (They were sold old initially and everything takes longer in Canada.) and I was surprised at the quality of it’s construction. If anything the fit ...

Shop Fox Table Saw Fence gets good marks.

Shop Fox Table Saw Fence gets good marks.

05-11-2009 08:44 AM by mart | 14 comments »

A friend flew down to the lower 48 to pick up a truck he bought and was going to be going through Washington on the way back to Alaska. I took advantage of the opportunity to have him swing by the Grizzly warehouse to pick up some equipment for me. In addition to an eight inch jointer which I will preview later, I had him pickup the Shop Fox Classic Fence System with Standard Rails. I finally got around to installing it yesterday and it couldn’t have been easier. It went on my old Grizz...

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

Review: Shop Fox Classic Fence Bottom line: The “Shop Fox Classic Fence” has proven to be an excellent addition to my workshop. My table saw is a Jet JWTS-10 (708100). I have always liked this saw (see review at http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/333), but was never completely satisfied with the fence. After a good deal of online research, I settled on the “Shop Fox Classic Fence”, and found a very good deal on it from Warren Cutlery, a Shop Fox dealer in Rhinebec...

First dedicated rip blade

First dedicated rip blade

10-10-2012 03:55 AM by dnick | 14 comments »

After all these years, I finally bought a rip blade, when I saw a good deal on Amazon. Always used combination blades before. What I really liked about the Freud LU87R010 was the thin kerf & the flat tooth grind. Always wanted flat tooth for grooves & spine joints. Blade was great. I ripped some soft Maple & Mahogony & didn’t have to joint the edges. Then when installing the blade, after maybe 20 rips, I just happened to notice the tooth you see in the photo, because it ...

I like the new design of Infinity's zero clearance insert.

I like the new design of Infinity's zero clearance insert.

I am not affiliated with Infinity in any way. This review refers to the design made on 3/1/13. Infinity has made modifications to the design of their ZCI for Sawstop that allows the saw blade to operate at full height. It’s machined out of aluminum and anodized red. The new unit doesn’t need the moving mechanism that sawstop uses. Fit and finish are great. Infinity drilled access holes in the plate so it’s easy to adjust the height of the insert from above the tabl...

This is a Rockler product that is well made and does exactly what it says it will do. It’s about $20 if you get it at regular price. I have used it on two occasions to rip several 1/8” strips to face the front of birch plywood wall shelves. Tonight the strips were from a drop of Poplar that otherwise would have been used as a bunch of stirring sticks on its way to the burn pile. I got three 1/8” x 96” pieces from the 3/4” x 5/8” x 96” I started ...

Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

09-30-2009 02:18 AM by dfarr | 13 comments »

I’ve always struggled with the cheap blade adjustment cranks (pictured right) on my 70s vintage table saw. I found these cast iron handwheels (H3189 – Cast Iron Handwheel – 6”) and chromed handles (H3205 – 4” x 3/8”-16) on the Grizzly web site. The handwheels were only $8.50 and the handles were $2.95. This was a great deal compared to other places I’ve looked at similar handwheels. The wheels come with a small center hole that I had to bore ou...

I had some extra money from Christmas gifts and I wanted to splurge on something I didn’t need but knew that I would love to have. This table saw fence gauge is great. I can zero it whenever I want with different blades, dado stacks and even on my router wing. I think it’s great I can make routered dados and accurate distances without much thinking. You can switch between absolute measurements (from zero with blade) to short term measurements if you just wanted to cut 1”...

Good idea - bad design

Good idea - bad design

01-07-2012 10:56 PM by richgreer | 13 comments »

At one time, I had a Wixey digital guide on my table saw. It could tell me, to .001 of an inch, what the distance was from the blade to the fence. I discovered that knowing the exact distance was not as important as having the ability to adjust the distance easily in very small increments (i.e. micro adjust). I have micro adjustment capabilities on my router lift and router fence and I really like them. This tool allows me to micro adjust my table saw fence. It’s a good idea...
