A Poor Man's Router Fence Positioning Jig

02-25-2010 11:13 PM by stefang | 17 comments »

Quite a few years ago I made a fence positioning jig from a design by Nick Engler. It was nice and worked fine, but when I built a new router table I also built a split fence so I would have the option of moving the outfeed side of the fence outwards to fully support the workpiece through the entire cut when jointing. I just occurred to me that I could use the positioning jig together with my split fence as shown below. One full turn of the handle on the positioner and the fence moves 1mm ...

Shopmade Jointer #1: The Plan

09-22-2011 04:53 AM by Armand | 13 comments »

I have Ryobi Thicknessers AP13AK arriving and I’m planning to build a 12” jointer based on Matthias Wandels' shopmade jointer. Everything will be copied except the infeed table height adjustment mechanism will be different. I’ll be using wedges to adjust the cutting depth. There will be 4 coil springs underneath the infeed table that will be hooked to the main body to keep the table on the downward pull. The four corner holes under each table are for threaded rods that w...

The Flip Side of Woodworking...

04-07-2008 09:25 PM by jcees | 14 comments »

Okay, here’s one of the most useful jigs that I’ve ever made. And if I lost i tomorrow, I could build another in about fifteen minutes. I’m not going to include any dimensions as you should make one to fit your own situation. I made this up obviously with scraps. If I made it out of anything else, it wouldn’t work any better. When I build things there’s always some small parts in need of a little fitting. Viola! I frequently use this #7 r...

Home Built 13" Jointer #1: Design

12-12-2015 05:49 PM by Ger21 | 6 comments »

This project started two years ago, when I sold my 6” Jet jointer to pay some bills, with the intention of replacing it with an 8” Grizzly. Due to other projects, two years went by without setting foot in my shop, so I never got around to replacing the old Jet.Ever since I saw Matthias Wandel’s homemade jointer project, I would periodically think about building one. While it was very intriguing, it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for in a jointer.About 6 months ago, ...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #7: Final Thoughts...

04-03-2011 11:28 PM by Lockwatcher | 6 comments »

Well, I think the table turned out just fine… I didn’t run into any real problems during construction…however I did notice when I was ripping the original lumber (as well as subsequent sanding) that the wood had a very strong smell to it. Not sure why – sometimes you get that from pine. Make sure if you build one of these to countersink & predrill your screw holes – otherwise, you may split the lumber. I have not put together a plan as of yet for fini...

New Woodworker Workshop Setup #6: New shop-built air cleaner and a great deal on used tools

08-14-2010 02:50 AM by PocketHole69 | 10 comments »

Shop-built Air Cleaner I tend to do my woodworking once the sun goes down and it cools off, so to keep from waking the neighbors up I usually do it with the garage door closed. This was pretty brutal on my lungs even with a dust collector so I built myself a shop air cleaner. It’s built around a 1 micron bag filter and 2” pre filter from an actual commercial shop air cleaner (about $45), one sheet of 3/4 ply. The blower motor is a 12” squirrel cage blower that moves ...

Split Roubo Workbench #2: Rough Dimensioning

03-21-2012 02:48 AM by lysdexic | 13 comments »

I spent the weekend cutting the lumber into bite size peices. I found this somewhat challenging because this is where I picked the boards and assigned their fate. ”You will be this and you will be that. No, wait, you are not wide enough. Go back into that stack. Now I need another one these but that means I will have to cut you in half…. Am I sure? ” I need the boards for the top to be ~ 5” wide. I will preserve length and thickness for now. Still in order to rip...
