forums viewing has changed? - 14 replies
today, when i logged into lumberjocks, instead of seeing a topic and a few words concerning it within an area (like power tool), i see a topic with a much greater part of the initial posting in a thread. this means i only get to see 2 or 23 threads at one time on my screen. have i inadvertently changed something? and if i have, can i change i...

took a little time this weekend and fabricated a small table for a ryobi 12” benchtop drill press. it copies a best tip winner in this month’s shopnotes magazine. i got to try out a milescraft trammel kit i got @ lowes for $15, and curves are one step closer to becoming less of an issue. 3/4” plywood base and fence. bo...

blackened router bit - 7 replies
i had to route a slot in a dril press table which was 3/4” plywood topped with 1/4” MDF. this is what the bit looked like after the routing: when i routed a wider slot in the underside of the 3/4” plywood base with a larger router bit,it didn’t blacken, so i’m guessing it’s somehow related to the M...
