Biscuit Joiner - 29 replies

I am in the market for a biscuit joiner. I love deWalt stuff but am very disappointed by what I have read about the DeWalt BJ. Seems my money would be better spent on of all things a Porter cable BJ.

Router Table with router???? - 10 replies

Is it just me or does it seem a good router table costs MORE than a good router? WTF? Then yesterday at Lowes they have a bench top Router table for like $129 bucks… WITH A ROUTER!!! I don’t recall the brand, but it all looked solid. Accessories for any good tool should not be more expensive than said [email protected]

Incra and Ridgid - 1 reply

I recently got a new Incra V-27 miter gauge to replace my hair splitting atomically accurate Ridgid Miter gauge. I also have retuned my entire R4512..
