I did see an excellent review on this jig after posting mine, but here are my thoughts anyway… I purchased the I-Box about 4 months ago after seeing a positive comment on LJs and noticing it on sale at a local tool vendor, but did not take it out of the box as I didn’t have an immediate need for box joints – was in the middle of my bench build. I was recently asked to build a custom oak makeup desk with drawers for a friend, and thought maybe I would try out the jig fo...

Fusion P410 is WICKED SHARP

Fusion P410 is WICKED SHARP

05-16-2013 01:05 AM by Mainiac Matt | 10 comments »

Just completing the refurbishment of an older 3 HP Jet cabinet saw, I decided to indulge in the first “premium” blade I’ve ever owned. I read several threads discussing blades and was intrigued to find out what the Hi-ATB with the double sided grind was all about. Now that I have the power, I also wanted to get a non-thin kerf blade. This blade is “wicked sharp”... There are a lot of technical discussions already out there, so for my review, I decided to...

The SawStop ICS base is wonderful saw base, but comes just short of 5*

The SawStop ICS base is wonderful saw base, but comes just short of 5*

OverviewIn short, this is an absolutely wonderful base that I love using with my SawStop 3HP cabinet saw, however I do have a few nits that keep this from being a 5 star product. Having said that though, if anyone else is in a similar situation to me, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend the industrial base over the standard professional base. For those that are unaware, SawStop makes two different mobile bases for their cabinet saws, one designed for the Professional models...

Quality Control issues at Freud

Quality Control issues at Freud

I recently purchased this dado set at Woodcraft and after making my first dado cut I noticed a ridge in the middle of the cut, as if the chippers were a fraction smaller that the outside blades, I took it back and exchanged it for another, which did exactly the same thing. When I returned to Woodcraft they put it on one of their table saws and got the same result, a noticeably higher ridge in the middle of the dado cut making the bottom uneven. They began pulling all these off their shelves...

Best plate out there

Best plate out there

ColliBeck has recently manufactured a replacement throat plate for the new Delta Unisaw. After buying several of the Delta phenolic plates at $60+ and they are either twisted slightly or bowed there is finally a plate that is perfectly flat, doesn’t flex and it’s the last plate you will need to buy. Recently I purchased a white aftermarket phenolic and having to send it back because it was bowed .014 I started looking for something better. I found it. I run a small cabinet s...

A lot for very little

A lot for very little

I thought my saw was reasonably vibration free for a contractor but on start up and especially shut down it would give a slight shudder. After years of ignoring advice to buy a link belt I did and am sorry I waited so long because it’s like having a new saw. I only thought my saw ran smooth but now there is no more shudder even at shut down and I’d swear it cuts a little smoother though that might be psychosomatic. If you’ve been wanting to try a link belt and have been putt...

I had become frustrated with my wooden, shop-made feather boards. I could never get the length of the “feathers” or the spacing/gaps between them to be just right for the type and thickness of wood being used. They were either too stiff or too weak. Knowing I was going to be ripping a considerable amount of thin stock, I wanted something safer, so I decided to give Harbor Freight a try. I’ve used this feather board every day for the past month – mainly on my TS b...

incra i-box a nice little jig

incra i-box a nice little jig

04-21-2013 05:49 PM by awlee | 6 comments »

I’m a fan of Incra tools and was very happy to get the I-box jig for box joints as a gift. The jig is sturdy, made of extruded aluminum and MDF, and includes an instructional DVD. Set up is easy. The instructions in both the DVD and the handbook are clear and easy to follow. I set mine up for a table saw, though there is an option to set up for a router table too; and one can go back and forth between table saw or router table without much fussing. Set up took me an hour-and-a-half (but ...

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...
