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...

Craftsman 1-1/2 hp 10'' Table Saw (OR35505) - 3 replies
i just noticed the above TS on sears’ website: http://www.sears.com/craftsman-1-2-hp-10inch-table-saw-or35505/p-00922114000P?prdNo=5&blockNo=5&blockType=G5 i was under the impression that all TSs sold to day were required to have riving knives and that splitters were no longer acceptable for new TS sales. if that’s tru...

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...

the height of TS blades and router bits (in a rouoter table) is in the 05/13 issue of wood magazine. it’s this month’s top shop tip and involves using a digital angle cube referenced off the the tool’s table. to set a blade or bit @ a height of 3/8”, for example, a 3/8” drill bit is placed on the tool surface and a ...
