I built the versatile mortising jig.. Only problem is the setup..
Has to be done by eye. Also , if you change routers, it may or not
Work. From my standpoint mortises are a lot of work. If one side
Is hidden from sight you can use pocket holes which is a lot
Easier and set up is simple and Results are great.
Incredible, we have a bunch of nuts in Sacramento ...Considering that this state is in considerable financial
difficulties, the assemblymen/women just ignore this and take
on side issues.
As i have said previously ..."GARBAGE WOOD" OUTSIDE OF
JIGS AND SOME VENEERING BASES IT IS TERRIBLE TO WORK ON.
OH YES ! IT DOES WARP...ITS ONLY SAVIOR IS ITS CHEAPNESS...
Sorry, I found the wipe on lifeless..I had tried a number of wipe on products and
none of them gave the finish of a sprayed or brushed water based product.
Have been using one since (Dewalt) 1960.. Nothing like it for cutting small
parts. Just try those on a table saw without jigs.
Anyone who purchases a table saw these days is quite aware of the dangers
in using such a machine. In fact most woodworking tools are dangerous..
Why not have simlar mechanisms in portable saws, routers, sabre saws etc.
It really poses a terrible problem for manufacturers since anyone who
misuses a machine and his wounded can sue the makers.. The other side of
the coin is if manufacturers build such elaborate safeguards into these machines,
the costs would be prohibitive and few if any weekend warriors would make
purchases. It appears that we are entering a new society that the individual
is not responsible for any of his follies.
