Topic tags/keywords: jig tip resource

The “Reviews” section of this site has worked out so well, I was wondering if we could rattle Martin’s cage to give us a section for posting “Tips and Jigs”. It could be catagorized the same way the “Reviews” section is, which would enable you to look up specific jigs for say, the table saw.

Whacha’ think?

Dadoo;

Actually, I think that’s a great idea!

Sure will save a lot of time searching for particular items.

I think the same thing could be accomplished by people tagging their projects well. If you search for projects tagged “jig” you get 72 results.

“jigs” gets 14 results.

I just think if people used the tags consistently it would be better all around but especially in this case. I think jigs are more projects than things to review.

I thought that this was discussed a long time ago? I don’t remember what ever came of it though.

I do remember something like that too Gary, but it was before the “reviews” section came out. (I did search thru my history but can’t find the comments…I do agree though that someone else started this same question). I like the way the “reviews” tab turned out. You can go and see reviews on just tablesaws if you want. I can really see this working for Tips and Jigs.

I’m all for that, it’s one of the reasons I kept stumbling across this site and joined! Now I’m here foreverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…...

I had an Idea the other day about a tool maintenance section, where you could go to learn the various ways to sharpen your chisels or tune up your bandsaw etc… How about it Martin? It could bring more people to the site.

Dadoo,

I agree with you. This would be a good idea.

Great idea…a “JIGS and Fixtures” button at the top
I think it would be used more than some of the others

Yep. That was it, except Blake wanted a “jigs” section added to your home page. Still I will give credit to Blake for this origional thought. Now if we can get Martin to build us one…

Dadoo, that would sure be a help for the newbies and a definite stop for me a couple times a week.
Most of what I know came from just such tips from practicing woodworkers/.

I can hear Martin saying ” Oh no, another indexed file I have to squeeze on to the main page!” <g>

cheers
Bob

Great idea it is an area that I for one could really benefit.
It really provides a good stopping ground before undertaking a project to determine has someone developed that “jig shortcut”——-saves a lot of research time online.
