Incra Miter 5000 - A tale of delight

Incra Miter 5000 - A tale of delight

04-24-2009 05:09 PM 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...

Incra V27 Basic Miter Gauge

Incra V27 Basic Miter Gauge

03-13-2009 03:20 AM by knotscott | 8 comments »

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. The bottom of the steel protractor head glides on a nylon pad that rides along the table surface. The Incra has a “GlideLOCK” miter bar that consists of 4 expandable nylon adjustment spacers in the bar to be perfectly taylor fitted to the standard 3/4”x3/8” miter slot on your saw. There is a removable t-clip on th...

Grip-Tite Sub Fence Clamp

Grip-Tite Sub Fence Clamp

03-09-2009 05:39 AM by Chris | 12 comments »

This has to be one of the best things I have laid my hands on in a while. I needed a better way to mount my sacrificial fence quickly and I saw these at Woodcraft for less than $20.00 US. Just drill a couple of 1/2” holes in the sacrificial fence and clamp it to your regular fence. That’s Easy! My only very minor gripe is that the little knobs that you tighten them with tend to loosen when you try to remove the clamps. A couple of drops of 5-Minute epoxy in each threaded hole f...

Improved splitter for my Saw

Improved splitter for my Saw

01-22-2009 12:03 AM by marcb | 6 comments »

I have an older saw with a horrible splitter. I’ve often gone without or used one of those cheap snap in plastic things for ZCI if I had to have one for serious ripping. This all changed with a piece of knowledge, part number 1349941 from the Delta parts website. This easily installs into Delta saws (even my old Rockwell) and someone made a website about installing it onto a jet. The splitter is thick, so it is not for use with thin blades. A knurled nut makes it easy to rem...

Santa Brought Me  A Landshark

Or, more accurately a "Shark Guard" by LeeWay Workshop. Installation I’ve only had the opportunity to install this today, so I haven’t really had a chance to fully put it through its paces. However, so far I am impressed. The improvised packaging the unit arrived in was demonstrative of its small shop origins; the actual contents, however, were not. Installation was straightforward using the directions provided on the site. They warned that some owners of my saw (Craftsman 2...

Final Cut THIS WORKS GREAT!!!!!!

Final Cut THIS WORKS GREAT!!!!!!

First, sorry but I couldn’t get a picture of the final cut to load so I loaded a picture of one of my glider’s. Check out this by MCLS!! http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/ec081111.html While I have not acutally used theirs, I did take atwo 100 grit sanding discs that were 12 inch and cut them down to 9 inch and put them on an old bosch blade that I knew left a lot of saw marks and I was amazed at how smooth the rips came out. I usually use a Forrest woodworker...

solid digital gauge which requires user modification to properly function!

i was in the market for a miter gauge and found myself looking at this beauty in a recent email from Hartville Tool. i decided to give it a go and happily sent off my $59.99 + S&H and awaited its arrival. shortly the package arrived and upon initial inspection i was very happy, the gauge looked well made, hefty, and simple, exactly what i was expecting! then i decided to assemble it… and that is where the problems began! the handle wouldn’t thread into the guide rail sec...

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 ...
