Good day

I have seen many kinds of stops for the table saw sled fence and the drill press fence but…
I could not find any T-Track here, so I had to make something different…

The stops that I made have some “plus” on the T-Track ones – you can remove them out of the way very easy while the T-Track ones, have to be dragged all the way out unless, it’s on hinge but, I don’t like hinges because they always have some play.

niki

Niki,

Yet another use for Super Glue! I never knew you could use it for that (welding a bolt in place).

I just just used some (super glue) this week to strengthen a hole in masonite – per your recommendation!

I even found some non slip sandpaper with the stickey back at the home center and put it on my miter gauge per Niki’s advice.

Keep them coming!

Thank you

Sorry for the late reply…did you know that wedding in Poland takes two days and you have to stay overnight…now, I also know..

There is another use for the super glue…to lock nuts to bolts…you just put a drop between the nut and the bolt (kind of, into the nut) and it will not open by itself.
I was locking nuts that way on the “Engine mounting bolts” of the “radio control flying model”... those two stroke engines are vibrating like hell and many times the nuts were released…a drop of CA, and no more release.

To open the nut, it’s very easy, you just “crack” the locked nut with a wrench.

Your ingenuity is remarkable. I have been going through some of your projects and learned a few tricks. Thank you for sharing your ideas, some are very simple and effective. Let me ask a personal question. Do you have dreams at night leading you to these results?
Thank you once again for sharing

Thank you Porrapai

So you were “digging” through my posts….now I understand why my Photobucket account “monthly bandwidth” went up to 15 GB…Just joking…

As far as I know, I don’t have any dreams about jigs but sometimes, I’m just looking around my small garage and it “clicks”...I don’t know how or why…

You should really writhe a book with all them in it!
