MLCS PowerLift Pro Router Lift

MLCS PowerLift Pro Router Lift

10-28-2016 01:06 PM by Indiana_Parrothead | 1 comment »

About three years ago I built a new router table and added the MLCS PowerLift model 9450, I had reviewed it here. Since I use a router quite a bit this was a great addition to the shop. With it having a digital readout it gave me a lot precision when it came to the depth of cut and made changing the depth of cut very easy. A few months ago MLCS introduced a new model that incorporated a Android Tablet to control the lift that added a lot of new features. Since I use the router a lot I decided...

Just out of curiosity and old times’ sake, I decided to give the new Wixey type 2 a try.same test as Capri and Accumaster. I repeated the tests several times just to make sure it was acclimated to weather but the readings stayed the same off by 0.2 and 0.3. it is also not as steady and smooth as Capri box.well, if the box that I got is any indication of what most of these new Wixey’s are like then it’s a definite no go.they may have at long last improved the LCD and replac...

H.F. Dovetail jig vs General Tools Dovetail jig

H.F. Dovetail jig vs General Tools Dovetail jig

10-21-2016 05:11 PM by jdjdjfhgnghgn | 9 comments »

I gave the Harbor Freight dovetail jig a perfect 5 rating. I purchased Exactly 3 of these jigs and exactly 3 were broke right out of the box. Each one had a knob broken completely off. Perfect score. I know, it’s harbor freight…....I’m actually a fan. Might even try again. I bought a General Tools dovetail jig and it is pretty good. I’m a beginner and it was a quick setup and got good results. Joints a little tight, but that can be adjusted. Yeah, more seasoned ...

Capri angle gauge. Pleasant surprise not bad at all.

So, After major disappointment with Accumaster dud and before I purchase a Wixey gen2, I decided to give the Capri a shot. it’s about 5 dollars less than Wixey2 but it has the back-lit LCD and uses one AAA battery.so as you can see from the pics it is extremely accurate. on the 90 degree tests using calibrated square it is always 100%. on the 45 degree tests using two woodpecker precision triangles, it registers 0.1 off sometimes. for most part it reads accurate 45 degree. it is however...

Byrnes Model Machines

Byrnes Model Machines

10-18-2016 06:24 AM by Bobthewoodbutcher | 4 comments »

About a year ago I bought (in fairly rapid succession) three of Jim Byrnes machine products. I had been looking for a miniature saw, and read glowing reviews of the “Jim Saw”. Well, I can attest to the super quality of all three of these machines in my shop. These were intended primarily for dollhouse furniture, but have been very useful for all sorts of projects. One of my current projects is a jewelry box that required many 1/4 and 3/8 panels. No sweat; just resaw (bandsaw) ...

This goes hand in hand with my previous posted project about pallet bases: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/268018I had a decision to make regarding how to move around my wood working machinery in my 2 car garage workshop which includes: 15” Jet planer, 8” jointer, Powermatic 66, Delta Unisaw, and any other machinery or cabinetry that needs to be move around. I could of went for the cabinet saw mobile bases with a price tag of $500+ (which have their own drawbacks) and 2 more Lom...

What a disappointment.

What a disappointment.

10-12-2016 11:15 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 9 comments »

Too bad. I was so eager to get this after all these years of owning a wixey and I really wanted this thing to be accurate. it was almost a dream come true. no pancake watch batteries. and bright LCD display but it is so off it’s not even usable as a door stop.I hope the one that i got was defective because even my 8 year old wixey is still right on.I never been crazy about wixey batteries and hard to read LCD and if you live in humid place like houston you have to keep zeroing it severa...

Winky-Lift Router Lift by Winky's Woodworking LLC

This review is of a product I am selling (can I review my own product?) I need to get this information out there and so far my relatively small business doesn’t have the budget that allows mass marketing and advertising. This router lift is completely unique in that it mounts in the cabinet below the the table rather than to the bottom of the table top (or inset). The biggest advantage to this design is that it can be used in a lift top router table! Yep… no more bending ov...
