Kreg Mobile Project Center

I just picked up my new Kreg Mobile Project Center Item #KWS1000.

Wow!  I set it up in my basement and it is great addition to my Kreg items.  I was viewing a video where a review on this fine product was being made, which prompts my question to Kreg, and here it is.

Are plans in progress to make a 90-degree Clamp to fit the Mobile Project Center, ie:  a larger disc on the Clamp, in order to slide into the under-table track?  If such a Clamp is made for this…

Laguna 14BX Band Saw

I decided that it was time to upgrade my bench-top bandsaw after almost burning it up trying to resaw a chunk of 3 inch wide walnut. After doing a bunch of research, and receiving my wife's blessing, I decided on a Laguna 14-12.  I spoke with one of the guys at a local retailer, and highlighted some of the features on the 14BX.  After speaking briefly with my wife, she approved the extra cost (about $300 more). The 14BX had the added advantage of being in stock, whereas I would have had to…

6" bench clamp

I setup my new drill press this weekend and the first thing I tried out was a spade bit. Unfortunately the lead point was like a screw and pulled the piece right out of my hands and off the table. I started looking for drill press clamps and came across these. Luckily my table came with t track grooves which let me use these babies. 

I already had a mag fence so with that and these clamps, nothing was moving. …

Supermax 19-38 Drum Sander

I received the SuperMax 19-38 "open end" drum sander about 3 weeks ago before starting my latest kitchen.  I ordered it through Acme Tools, shipping was great, machine was packaged very well and arrived on time.  I have not used the Jet/Performax sanders, but have seen them in local stores, this machine by far surpasses them in size and how it's machined.  This unit is extremely heavy and impressive.  I was a little leary in the 1 3/4 hp motor and how it would handle larger jobs, but it…

New Plastic Screw Boxes - Suggestion

The new plastic screw boxes are great.  Wanted to make a suggestion to allow easy labeling when reusing.  Perhaps you could make the original label like those you find on some other products (medicine bottles for example) where the top layer peels away and then there are instructions underneath, but in this case would leave you with a plain white label underneath to write on.

May not be possible and I know increased cost of label for you, but just a thought when was trying to…

Automaxx® Face Clamp

These pads should be switched. The articulating handle feels more ergonomic in the fingers while squeezing it and flicking it back open. To use it with the jig you need to use your thumb to squeeze and that tired my hand out after a dozen holes. I still needed to use two hands.

Drill Bits for Glass - Carbide Tip tricks

It doesn't matter what brand you buy, they all work in a similar fashion.

Carbide Tip Glass and Tile Cutting Drill Bit Sets are cheaper to purchase than Diamond tipped circular types.

To be honest all you have to be is patient (after a few mistakes, running water is not a bad idea if you can manage it) otherwise pay attention to the glass or tile you are intending to cut into and where you intend to drill.  Try to see if…

Kreg Precision Beaded Face Frame System

I have been looking at this system for a couple of years now and been wondering when are Kreg going to release the mark 2 version with a better clamping set up and possibly a better runner slide as I've seen both of these parts of the product criticized. It's been out since 2009 I believe, any news Kreg?

Also, it is impossible to find a dealer in the UK were I live to supply one, and the pricing on Amazon seems pretty high... so the question to Kreg is when are you going to…

Where in the world is the imperial system used!

I live in Australia. I recently purchased a Kreg K4 Jig from our local Australian supplier and was looking forward to using it. On opening the packaging I've discovered that all measurements are in inches. Australia has not officially used this imperial system since 1976. I was bewildered to learn that no metric product is available. My dilemma Is that i use and struggle with this old and ancient system or not use the machine at all.



I am extremely disappointed that although most of… Continue

DeWalt DWP611PK Router

I picked up a cheap $29 Harbor Freight trim router to cut grooves for splines in miter joints.  I was thoroughly disappointed when the 1/8" splines were extremely loose within the grooves.  The grooves ended up measuring .168 inches using a .125" bit.  Since then, I looked at the compact router offerings from Bosch, DeWalt & Porter Cable.

All were 1.25 HP, had 1/4" collets, came in a package that included a plunge base and were highly rated by their users. I chose the DeWalt…

Portable Base

product

I like this portable base a lot, but it has one design flow that I found a little annoying. The 3 mounting holes on the base are not counter sunk to allow mounting screws to be flush with the bottom of the base. Thus when using a jig in the base the jig adjustment are off by the height of the screw head that was used. The jig will not sit flush to the bottom of the base.

Kreg Rip Cut

Since I bought the Rip Cut I have questioned the quality and design of the tool. It took me multiple times to get it calibrated. I then made one rip cut on 3/4" plywood with my 6 1/2" saw. It did not stay square and totally screwed up my wood. Never going to use that again. It should be all aluminum and they need a better way to mount the saw to the sled. No more screws and more secure.

Kreg Jig Jr.

I do love this product, making it easy to build projects for my home. Just started building a book case and hit a snag.

I am using 1/2" material and followed the screw size chart which says the 1" screw and it was too long and came out the other side! I was abruptly disappointed as on my last project I used 3/4" material and it was a breeze.

Anyone had this issue with 1/2" material?

SawStop Professional 3HP/52" rip

Received the SawStop about a week ago and have used it enough that I think I can write a review.  First off, I bought this saw due to the safety aspect, my old saw was a 3HP Shop Fox. 

The things I like about the saw:

-Dust collection is better than my previous saw, the blade is encased in a…
