    RADII: Hoarding, jigs and math

    Well, this is not a very detailed HOW TO, but it does instruct, so maybe it fits here. First, let's talk about hoarding. I'm not sure if hoarding is a recognized mental defect, but I tend to think it is. If not, it should be. I obviously suffer from the disease. Since I got my big Rikon, I...

    Dovetail Jigs??

    I have never cut a dovetail in my life. I was thinking about getting a DT jig for just in case I ever want to. Problem is I know nothing about them. Some reviews I have read say not to get plastic templates(like Rockler) because they flex too much. I don't want to put a ton of money in one...

    Finished Some New Router Jigs

    http://community-2.webtv.net/Jakofalltrades/JIGSPATTERNSSUCH/ Finished these this evening. Less final trimming, and some fine-tuning sanding, that is. I figure these should save me several minutes worktime per piece made, and save loads of aggrivation.

    3 Box Joint Jigs in a 3/4"x24"PVC pipe

    I was having coffee this morning and had a brain storm. You see all them jigs in your shop, what if you could put three of them in a 3/4" PVC pipe about 24" long? And mount them on the side of your router table. Go down to the hardwear store and buy three square rods, 1/2" - 3/8" and 1/4" (or...

    MDF vs. Ply for jigs

    Most of the mags use 3/4 plywood for jigs. I use MDF ('cause it's cheaper!). Am I missing something? What, if any, are the benefits of using ply over MDF? pete

    Opinions on Kreg pocket hole jigs

    The quest to spend the rest of my B-day money is on. I have thought about a new TS blade, more clamps and other things. But I have heard great things about pocket hole jointery, and that is something that I don't have a jig for. I have $100 to spend at Amazon and have been looking at the Kreg K3...
