  1. Router Template Doubles As Drill Guide

    This drill press guide doubles as a router profile template and as a locating guide for the 1-5/8 diameter Forstner bit. Combined with the Wixey digital readout on the drill press the small production run of Tea Light Candle Holders went flawless. For a complete description of the profile...

  4. Whopper Plopper.... It works!

    I made a bait that has a rotating tail and such a cool sound. It's called a whopper plopper. After a fashion I got it to work. It's made of white pine. Everything is hand made except the hooks. A great video of it that shows the complete build and in action in the water… such a cool sound...
  5. 5-Board Benches

    My new neighbors are waiting for their furniture to arrive from Texas, and they said it might not be here for several months. They asked me to make a couple of five board benches for their dinning room table. They wanted simple. The benches are made from 1X pine, and are about as simple as...

    This is the Gavel I made for Monica Riney, my darling wife, for her year as Worthy Matron of our OES chapter. It is made from Pecan wood naturally fallen from the tree in the front yard of the house she grew up in. The wood was sealed with wax on the end grain and aged under my bench for about 2...
  10. My first pen!

    In an effort to keep up with the LJ's, I've made my first pen. And, truth be told, this is my first project on a lathe. It's a simple slimline pen turned with some scrap cherry. It's finished with Danish Oil and CA glue. This was my first time using CA and being a rookie, I put too much on the...
  11. Table saw fence on steroids

    I keep adding and adding to my table saw rail, mostly with safety and usability improvements. First I added the Wixey DRO with a General International microadjuster. Then I added the Jessem Clear-Cut Precision Stock Guides, which were a nice addition. But last year I bought the Duelen Safety...
  12. Marketplace Classifieds
    Less than 1 month old. Works great and is very accurate. I have decided to purchase the Incra TS-LS system for my table saw so I will no longer need this. I have every Wixey item in my shop and they are great! Includes original box and everything that came with it new. Easy to install...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I was about to pull the trigger on a Wixey digital gauge when my grandson says, "I bet there is an app for that". Sure enough, there are several free inclinometer apps in the android store. Anyone have any experience using them for setting tablesaw blade angles? Not sure how well they would...

    I have a DeWalt DW 735 planer and I bought a Wixey Digital Planer WR 510 type 2. I'm trying to mount it so that I can use it but it doesn't look right. When I hold the Wixey assembly against the black metal scale on the right side of the DW 735 it isn't level. The top of the Wixey assembly...

    I just saw in the Lee Valley pre Christmas catalog that Beall makes a magnetic angle degree digital checker similar to the one by Wixey. Anyone used the Beall model? Advantages?
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Not being able to find any used ones available in my area, I think I'm going to be breaking down and buying a new 16-32 drum sander during the current Jet sale. Having just installed a Wixey DRO on my planer and wondering how I ever did without it, I'm curious about installing one on my future...
