    Did I obsolete half my saw blades?

    I don't understand why saws can't run full kerf blades. My Delta contractor's run full kerfs all the time. One saw has 1.5HP motor and other has 2.0HP motor.

    Best thought out sled ideas

    Watched that video last night. Great sled and video. However, Steven needs to watch Jerry cole's video on the DUBBY. He shows simple way to figure picture frames. While Steven's jig does perfect nineties (so does the DUBBY,) have him try to make a seven sided picture frame. The DUBBBY can. I...

    3" C-Clamp differences.

    Kreg used to have a series of videos on trimming out houses, and yes they did use pocket screws for stair treads, rather than buying treads complete.

    Preferred miter slot router bit?

    MLSC is the ones I have used. No matter what size shank, they all neck down to about 1/4" at cutter. That's why they break so easily.

    Just think, by the time you get all the "bugs" worked out, there will be a newer system waiting the wings to replace this system. Good luck on the transition

    Dado jig - 'exact width'

    I go a different route. Having made thousands of feet of cubbies for local "Y's", I have cut more than my share of dados. I use a piece of 1/4" plywood with a fence (3/4 stock) attached. Use the router to trim plywood to exactly where the bit cuts, similar to making a saw guide. Use them in...

    Preferred miter slot router bit?

    The bits I have used worked best if I removed the center part with a dado blade, or straight router bit. Then the T slot bit only has to remove the side cuts. There isn't much "meat" where the T cutter meets the shank cutter. Easy to break. DAMHIK, but I do. Couple nights ago was watching a you...

    Router lift?

    With a plunge router, look at the Router Razor. Several you tubes on building a router lift also. Take the money you would spend on a lift and get a plunge router. You can make your own plate for you existing router.

    Last night while cruising thru Wood Magazine's tips, saw one on DC for a belt sander. Basically just a piece of PVC pipe cut open to fit around roller on belt sander, then connected to DC.

    How to fix this gutter? Basement flooding

    Last photo. Move down spout to end of gutter, and run it all the way to the ground, and into drainage pipe. As for clogged gutters, I recommend Leaf Guard gutters. Yes they do cost more, but they never have to be cleaned. About fifteen years ago, I had to replace a facia board (carpenter bee...
