Table Saw Jigs #1: A Crosscut / Miter Sled for Craftsman 10" Table Saw With Non-Standard Miter Slots

04-13-2012 03:03 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

Here’s a link to a video that I made about my new crosscut / miter sled that I built for my Sears Craftsman 10” Table Saw with non-standard miter slots. I hope this helps some others who are looking for a solution to improve the accuracy of cross cuts and miter cuts with similar inadequately equipped table saws. I added the miter cutting features after this video was made, so I will have to update the video or include some new photos at another time. http://youtu.be/0Gr5t...

Hand Tool Skills #1: My Journey Towards Proficiency

01-20-2008 08:31 PM by Jeff | 9 comments »

“My Journey Towards Proficiency.” That’s a lofty statement, isn’t it? Let’s just say it’s a goal I have the intention of reaching at some level, some day. There seems to be a lot of chatter about hand tools in the world of woodworking lately and I am glad it is occurring. As most of you probably know, this can be a decidedly partisan discussion. I don’t want to get into that type of discussion because a person’s tool choice really comes down to what makes them happy and gets th...

They Were Nice, But...

08-20-2015 01:04 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

If anyone remembers my festival of shop made bar clamps from a few years ago, you may be surprised to learn that they weren’t perfect after all. True I’ve used them as much as I could over the intervening time, but I was always contemplating on how to make them better. I even came out with an improved clamp a little while ago, but it too was not quite there. My improved clamp sports a stronger screw (3/8 in. instead of 1/4 in.) and the movable stop is much better, depending ...

Dave's Workshop #15: I improved my tapering jig

03-10-2016 07:51 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Over a year ago I posted this blog entry [link] about the jigs I’ve made for my table saw. Even then I knew the tapering jig pictured above was in need of augmentation. At the time it was adequate, but every time I used it… This week I decided to just take the time and fix the old tapering jig up so that wouldn’t feel so much on the edge when I use it. The main reason though is that I want to use it more for putting a nice clean edge on boards that are not straight. ...
