i trimmed a workpiece for a small desk project on my 113 c-man 10” TS and took my calipers to the offcut, just for the heck of it. the piece was 24” long and each end was .12” thick. the workpiece was larger but absolutely perfectly uniform end to end. now for the part that’s going to hurt. I will be disassembling this...

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...

drill press table - 4 replies

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...
