First Look at Micro Jig's "ZeroPlay" miter bar.

First Look at Micro Jig's "ZeroPlay" miter bar.

1732 days ago by handi | 3 comments »

Not quite available in stores yet, I got the chance to test and review Micro Jig’s “ZeroPlay” miter bars. They are really two pieces with opposing wedges molded in that spread them to fit the miter slot. Set screws lock the bars once adjusted. They are molded of glass filled nylon, which makes them durable as well as slick enough to slide well. The bars are short at 9 1/2”, but because they make full contact with the slot along their entire length, they are surp...

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

Shop Fox Classic Fence - A Real Gem

1732 days ago by TheDane | 14 comments »

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...

Leecraft Phenolic Insert GE-3

Leecraft Phenolic Insert GE-3

1789 days ago by Chris | 16 comments »

Purchased this insert from Woodcraft in Jacksonville for a couple of reasons; first and foremost it was cost effective. Secondly, I have had little luck making my own from plywood or other such materials due to the fact that I can’t tweak the height (no leveling screws). The first pic shows the insert alongside the factory supplied insert from General. There is a screw on one end and one side to adjust the lateral fit and small hex screws at the four “corners” to adjust t...

Nice going Pal

Nice going Pal

1791 days ago by Routerisstillmyname | 15 comments »

If you have a contractor TS and extra 20 dollars burning hole in your pocket then maybe you should splurge on one of these before the gas goes back up to 4 a gallon.And that’s just what I did today. I didn’t need them or have to have them to align the 3660. I had already got it to 0.001. But I’ve never been fond of contractor saw trunnions. When I finally got my saw last year,(Table saws scare the heck out of me) it took slight modifications to get my saw to register 0.001. And during that ti...

Wixey WR300 Digital Angle Gauge

Wixey WR300 Digital Angle Gauge

1793 days ago by Emeralds | 31 comments »

The Wixey WR300 angle gauge is the perfect device for setting up a table saw, jointer table, bandsaw or any device that requires specific angle juxtaposition. Beyond setting your tool at a 90 degree angle, the WR300 allows you to get +/- 0.1º and for those in need of accurate angle cuts, this can only be a good thing. Aside from setting the tools themselves this little device takes all the guess work out of jig construction, drill press hole angles and anything requiring a precise, repeat...

Osborne Miter guage for your table saw

Osborne Miter guage for your table saw

1801 days ago by Bob #2 | 28 comments »

I had looked at this guage before and had purchased an alternate one in the interim. (shoot me) I got a chance last week to re evaluate it and have these observations: 1. It uses triangulation rather than depending on a pivot point on a miter guage. What this means is that where a miter guage can get you close, the triangle can get you dead on.It’s just got more room on the scale to get it right. The extendable arm has a series of detents on the underside (20 in all) that gets you...

Shop Fox Table Saw Fence gets good marks.

Shop Fox Table Saw Fence gets good marks.

1803 days ago 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...

Incra Miter 5000 - A tale of delight

Incra Miter 5000 - A tale of delight

1820 days ago by WhittleMeThis | 9 comments »

Having used a cross cut sled and a standard miter guage for years, I thought I would upgrade my ability to make angled cuts on my table saw. As many, I struggled with angle cuts on my compound miter saw, for mouldering and general carpentry my miter saw did a great job but when it came to very precise miter joints my compound miter saw fell short. The compound miter saw always required a lot of fine tuning and test cuts and often with less precision than I would have liked. I spent some time...

The V27 is Incra’s entry level basic gauge retailing at about $60 and is constructed primarily of sturdy steel with some well placed nylon trim pieces.

There is a removable t-clip on th...
