"Hi ray how you doing? Best advice I can give you is cut the blanks into 3x3" blocks and that way should dry out quicker ,but you cannot beat a long time on the shelf to dry out timber with a nice airflow ."

Michael evans's Product Reviews


Well had the benchtop router table a fair while now .Overall pretty pleased with it ,however another small problem i have discovered is concerning the table overhang.Its really non existent, so it does not lend itself well too clamping any auxcillary fences too the edge of the table .Which i have needed to do at times, you can clamp too the edge but you need a spacer block between the metal frame of the table and your clamp so it sits flat very fiddly.So just a suggestion to kreg would it be…

Triton trb001router

Hi this is a review of the triton 2000watt router.I think its the most innovative router i have come across.The triton has 3 modes of depth setting,including a winder handle facility for table mounting.It is variable speed and loses no momentum under load.A big bonus for me its very quiet in use .Overall i give it 9 out of 10.

kreg benchtop router table

Hi all just road tested my kreg router table , i give it 8out of 10.


Its well made with a nice flat table.

The insert plate top notch quality.

The plate levellers are a great idea.

Dust extraction via the fence seems to work well.

Assembly fairly simple good instructions.


Table should come with hold down brackets.

No nvr switch had too take off my old…

Hi Michael  - That's exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks Derek

Mick, I think all sheppards have hip problems. We give him glucosimine tablets and it seems to help. Mainly, we just baby him to death. He is is very well tempered.

Thanks Mick That's just what I'll need. I'll give you a shout if I get stuck.

Hi Mick I will get round to the floor once I stop the water coming in the front door. I need to dig a 4" wide trench through the concrete of the drive and make a soakaway. Once the weather gets better around springtime I'll probably tackle in then I can do as you suggest and put a proper floor in. Good idea to keep in touch and swap ideas.

These guys are just like children to my wife and I. My German Sheppard is my third one in all the years past. They are very loyal and well mannered souls, as you well know.

Ha, I don't know so much about my masterpieces. I did finish my storage rack project and it turned out pretty handy, but it is far from a masterpiece. How have you been? Well, I hope. Have you started any new projects, yet?

Mick, I certainly hope it doesn't come to that,  but it might survive.

Good to hear from you, Mick!  I too have a 24 year-old son.  Say, go have a pleasant holiday, Mick - you deserve it.
