Rockler Cross Lap Jig

Rockler Cross Lap Jig

06-09-2020 10:25 PM by gtrgeo | 6 comments »

I used this jig to create an egg crate style return air grill (project here) and it worked flawlessly. I have used shop made jigs in the past for box joints but the adjustable fingers on this jig intrigued me. I have never used the Incra I-Box jig but they look to operate similarly. Contents:The jig comes in a sturdy box and is packaged well with a block of Styrofoam included to prevent shifting of contents. The parts are in two separate bags. The wood components in one bag and the adjusta...

Just bought another table saw so what better excuse to buy another miter fence. I purchased the Incra® Miter 1000SE with Telescoping Fence from Rockler on sale for $150 with free shipping. I’m happy so far and can’t wait to get my hands on it. Step one, adjust the miter bar to the slot in the table by expanding the nylon washers in the bar. Easy peasy right? Not so much. Using the supplied hex wrench I couldn’t get any of the three washers to expand using enough force that a...

General 350 manual riving knfie

General 350 manual riving knfie

I have been running table saws since I was 15, closing in on 25 years! Outside high school, I cannot recall any saw having a fully functioning, proper guard. I thought with my 7 year old spending more time in the shop, I should set a good example. When I was shopping for a new table saw, I did weigh the option of buying something new so I could experience the benefit of a riving knife. I found a great deal on a beast of a saw and just could not pass it up. I found a used 5 hp General 350. Thi...

Boys and Girls, One of the better things of evaluating an item many months after purchase, you tend to forget the often exorbitant price you paid for it.. if it works. As I’ve given this item 5 stars it goes without saying that I do not begrudge the cost. I had to order it form USA and I did begrudge the $111.00 shipping cost, however, Amazon did advertise free shipping at the time (… even internationally) and they refunded my shipping cost after being challenged. I decided to review t...

Jessem Mite-R-Excel II, Good upgrade with potential

Jessem Mite-R-Excel II, Good upgrade with potential

11-21-2019 08:12 PM by splintergroup | 16 comments »

There has been some discussion lately about this product and I have been sort of promising to post some information, so here it is! Summary: The good:Very well crafted, solid, excellent miter slot width adjustability. The not so good:Could use some more design work for the flip down stop, although it is still quite excellent. $$$ Rating: 4-stars (nothing is ever perfect!) Price paid: Introductory price of $269 + free shipping (May 2019) Mite-R-Excel II web site I bought t...

Expensive and not compatible with just about all SS accessories I own

Expensive and not compatible with just about all SS accessories I own

I’m sorry to say that I am really disappointed with the SawStop Folding Outfeed Table. Because of the incompatibility with other SS accessories it has the feel like some type of poorly engineered third party add on. They should at least state what SawStop accessories it does not work with. Some incompatibilities have been noted in other reviews such as on Rockler but a new one is that the installation also requires you to cut off a portion of your Over Arm Dust Collector. I started with t...

A good quality low cost fence...with some quirks.

Always had a soft spot for Craftsman Contractors saws, as I kinda grew up with the men in my life using them. When I started my Biz, I started with a 70’s vintage cast iron top contractor saw, decked out with Vega Fence, out feed tables etc. Anyway, naturally upgraded to a cabinet saw, and in a moment of weakness…sold my old 113. saw. Regreted it ever since. So a couple of months ago passed a 113.298 on the curb for bulk garbage day, and I rescued it. Yeah it has aluminum top..but...

 Bench Dog Accessories

Bench Dog Accessories

06-01-2019 10:49 PM by hairy | 2 comments »

I bought my ‘89 Unisaw 11 years ago. It did not have a bladeguard , splitter or any safety equipment. Among the first accessories I purchased was the Bench Dog featherboard. I use it a lot. A couple years ago I bought an Ark Shark guard, for safety as much as dust collection. I use it as much as I can. The Bench Dog push stick is great for when the fence is near the guard. It looks kinds flimsy, but it is pretty stout. I always thought the Blade Loc was a gimmick. I got one at a y...

Worthwhile upgrade

Worthwhile upgrade

03-27-2019 12:54 PM by Jarrhead | 5 comments »

I wasn’t going to spend the money. I figured from the other reviews I had read, and the video I watched that the VSC Tools T-square fence would be an improvement over the Shop Fox Biesemeyer style fence that came with my Grizzly G1023 saw. However, I wasn’t convinced the improvement would justify the price. I was wrong. Shortly after I bought the tablesaw I purchased a set of extended rails to increase the cutting capacity to the right of the blade. But then I had a set of sh...

Good splitter solution for saws without a riving knife

Good splitter solution for saws without a riving knife

01-02-2019 06:54 PM by Mike_D_S | 13 comments »

I’ve actually had this for about over a year new in the package, but shortly after I got this I also picked up a Betterley Tru Cut insert which has an aluminum body and a pre cut slot for a splitter preventing the use of the Micro Jig system, so the MJ Splitter got put in a drawer. Recently I was cutting some white oak and was getting some binding. I have a Steel City cabinet saw and it uses a bulky splitter/blade guard. For a couple of reasons, I don’t use the factory splitt...
