H7507 Router Extension Table for Table Saw

H7507 Router Extension Table for Table Saw

04-03-2012 11:34 PM by Pie | 10 comments »

With birthday approaching and my wife asking me what i wanted…..I jumped on this for my t-saw. Installing this by yourself is very doable, but is a bit frustrating. Being cast iron, the surface is very flat, even and the two inserts provided are made of metal (not plastic). I had to make my own fence which was easy enough even without the instructions in the manual. I’ve only used the router extension twice and everything worked as advertised. Grizzly continues to make excellent p...

Extra hands that work surprisingly well

Extra hands that work surprisingly well

03-29-2012 02:06 AM by GrandsonOfRue | 10 comments »

I saw these some time ago on a show. New Yankee Workshop, I think. I, like many others, find myself well, by myself in the shop when it is time to cut 4×8 sheets of ply. While I do have an eager 7yr old it is not safe for him nor I. These work by pulling the board against the fence as it is fed. The angle of the rollers does the work. The set screw with the eyelet allows you to adjust the level of the rollers based on the board thickness you are feeding through it. The YELLOW ro...

Using the Delta T-2 to replace the Ridgid 4511 fence

Using the Delta T-2 to replace the Ridgid 4511 fence

03-26-2012 01:55 AM by MoshupTrail | 15 comments »

A few weeks ago I started a forum topic about fixing the lame fence system that came with the Ridgid 4511 Granite top table saw. The problem with the Ridgid’s fence is that the guide tube is split and joined in the middle with a cheap plastic part. The plastic part forces one of the tubes to be slightly offset from the other making it impossible to adjust the fence angle. When the fence slides from one tube to the other the angle will change slightly. Initially I was thinking to...

Let me start by saying that I am very pleased with the results of this miter gauge. The cuts it produces are consistently great. I check them against a Mitatoyo machinist square and they are dead on. They are far, far more accurate and consistent then those produced by my Bosch slider. There are however some limitations and problems which I will explain in detail so my fellow LJs will know just what to expect. I bought the Incra 1000 SE about three months ago. The Incra 1000 SE comes...

wixey digital angle cube

wixey digital angle cube

I bought this product because I was tired of assuming that the bevel scale on my table saw was correct. I was shocked to see just how bad it really was. All in all I’m impressed with the product, it has one job and it does it well. The only thing I have found is that when it gets cold, for instance when it sits in an unheated shop, it doesn’t always read true. This is easily fixed by zeroing it out on the table and checking the blade bevel again.

Good idea - bad design

Good idea - bad design

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...

Cross cut sled

Cross cut sled

01-04-2012 06:23 PM by richgreer | 28 comments »

I’d always thought of a cross cut sled as a “nice to have – but not essential”. Then Rockler had a sale on this item ($99) and I said “why not”. This is a tool that raises the buy versus build question. I could probably have made a sled as nice as this one, but I am sure I would have spent at least $50 in materials and several hours of labor and I decided, in this case, to buy instead of build. I am very impressed by the overall quality of the ma...

Good Value, Serves its Purpose

Good Value, Serves its Purpose

I’ve probably waited much longer than I should have to purchase a featherboard setup for my table saw. Reading more into the magnetic featherboards and some of their reviews, I knew this would be the most versatile option instead of those that function using the miter track. I stumbled upon the Ridgid one online and read many positive reviews about it. The price point was also attractive relative to other brands that were selling for $50+ for what seemed to be the same basic concept....

The good: I do believe this Miter gauge to be the best on the market! It is unbelievable accurate and very well built! The bar itself is completely adjustable for any miter slot. I get no wiggle or play at any point with this gem. after using it I am extremely confident with the positive stops. It has a ruler built into the miter gauge fence and a micro adjustable stop for repeating cuts for accuracy. It also has a stop built in at the very end of the telescoping fence for even more versatili...
