Part 1: Flat Beaded Face Frame experimental work Part 2

01-12-2019 09:13 AM by robscastle | 6 comments »

As it had cooled off a bit outside today I decided to continue on with the Beaded Face frame activity. I left off with having everything at the dry assembled stage ready for beading. As the frame was so thin using pocket holes was out of the question, so I came up with a brainstorm to use Biscuits. However the ends cut OK but I was not able to cut the notches as my machine set at #0 did not fit on the narrow gap. So I had another brain storm I would simply set the cutter to #20 and...

OK I spent $81 AUD on, 1×1/4 Beading bit P/N 42500 $32 AUD and1×1/4 1.5 ” Notching bit P/N 4200 $49 AUD. Now some explanation of the actual bits, if you are not familiar with these bits dont bother trying to understand the packaging markings or try to measure them it will only confuse you more.They do not follow conventional Router bit identification markings. So here we go:-For one they are not 1/4 shanks both are 1/2” The 1/4” on the notching bit act...

The whole exercise is a learning activity and I can a...

Part 4: The Beaded Face Frame Pt 3, the last experiment

01-26-2019 01:10 AM by robscastle | 7 comments »

I continued on with my beaded Face frame learning.This time I increased the size of the bead profile and made the final frame.It appears you can increase the bead profile up to a certain size before needing bigger notching bits.According to Kreg you can use 1/4, 5/16 and 3/8 beading bits with the 1 12 notching bit. So I selected a bigger beading bit and tried again. Again I dressed up some recycled timber for the job. Set up some test pieces and got to work. It turned out OK ...

Part 5: Using No 20 Biscuits in Notched Face frames

01-31-2019 03:18 AM by robscastle | 5 comments »

You may recall from my Blog at Pt2 I tried to use biscuits in Notched Face Frames without much sucess. Well after giving it some more thought I found you could actually use biscuits if you wanted to. The situation I encountered earlier was that I could not get my biscuit Cutter into the face of notched area.However if you use a slot cutter you can do this.How I did it:- The slot cutter was a 4mm 4 flute with a bearing and 1/2” shaft.Similar to this one. I set the cutter up...
