Rock solid Rockler tenoning jig

Rock solid Rockler tenoning jig

2353 days ago 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...

Rockler Sure-Loc Miter Guage With Fence & Stop

Rockler Sure-Loc Miter Guage With Fence & Stop

2354 days ago by DaveH | 6 comments »

Dead on accurate out of the box if your miter slots are parallel with the saw blade. Easy to assemble and adjust. Price paid: $101.49 ( included shipping ) Would I buy another: No, spend the extra money and get a better quality solution or build you own. I’m going to replace the fence with a shop built. Rockler Link Improvements needed:Option for a fence extension.Flip stop instead of a wood sliding stop.Drop in miter bar style instead of a bar style forcing you to slide...

Kreg Miter gauge

Kreg Miter gauge

2356 days ago by OttawaP | 4 comments »

I bought this gauge recently (cashing in some LV gift certificates) after promising a bunch of picture frames to my wife. It was as good a reason as any to spend some cash at LV. I did do a bit of DD on the two models they offer and found quite a bit of disappointment in the Accumiter gauge on the internet. My General miter gauge that came with the saw is nice and heavy duty but not so repeatable for anything other than 90 or 45 deg’s. I recently built a ladder shelf that had 10 deg angles...

Tablesaw Essentials.

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...

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

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

2373 days ago 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...

Taper jig for us lazy folks

Taper jig for us lazy folks

2375 days ago by sIKE | 16 comments »

Got this when I was in the Cambridge Rockler store. I had been thinking about making my own but this one is only $15 and I couldn’t pass. It works as designed, both sides of the fence. Some specs from the Rockler site: Cut tapers up to 3’’ per foot/15º slope. Graduated metal scale makes it easy to cut tapers at desired angles. Easy to use and easy to adjust. Offers measurements in degrees and inches per foot of taper. I cut the the piece of red oak in the bottom of th...

Greetings from West Virginia. I’m new here but I have been dying to tell someone about my new toy. I just got the Osborne EB3 Miter Gauge for Christmas and its great! I have a Grizzly G0576 left tilt table saw and the stock miter gauge was ok for rough cuts but it just was not accurate enough in my judgement. Even though I adjusted the guide bar, it still would move slightly in the slot. The angles were difficult to set and I had to look for my protractor to double and triple check...

MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 Contractor saw

MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 Contractor saw

2408 days ago by pastor_shane | 8 comments »

Now I know what some of you may be thinking. Putting a JessEm MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 is well, kinda like putting a bored out 350 engine into a Chevy Citation. But with the mastRSlide, I have been able to achieve very accurate and just as importantly consistent results with this set-up. While someday I hope to be able to afford a hybrid or full-blown cabinet saw, the mastRSlide has allowed me to take on projects that I otherwise would never have dared attempt on the Bosch 4000 alone. ...

Incra Miter Express / Miter 1000SE - VIDEO

Incra Miter Express / Miter 1000SE - VIDEO

2417 days ago by mot | 15 comments »

I wanted to add to the mitre gauge posts. Wayne posted a photo tour of the Jessem System, and David posted initial impressions of the Kreg System. The incra 1000SE is seen here in the Incra Miter Express sled. Both are available at Woodpeck.com You can see the kerf where the mitre sled straddles the blade in the tablesaw allowing for the cutoff piece to be coplanar with the workpiece. This decreases the chance of the saw flinging the cutoff piece back. The Incra guage is adjutab...
