    Best Way to Straight Line?

    I have some oak boards that I have planed. The edges are not exactly straight, and I need them to be. I don't have a working jointer. :nah: What's the best way to get one edge straight so I can then run that edge against my table saw fence and wind up with both edges straight? Is that...

    Straight rip fence

    On my Delta saw I used the miter gauge that came with the saw and placed a speed square on it to check to see if the rip fence was straight and it wasn't. It appears that the back end was about 1/16 to 1/8 further left than the front end when the fence is locked down. I tried to adjust the...

    New jointer - spiral or straight?

    I've been joking with my wife that I want to buy a Grizzly G0609 12" Parallelogram jointer for Christmas. She always kinda laughed at me...until this last weekend. I mentioned getting something else instead and she said "I thought you were getting that new jointer."! :tool: So I guess it's as...

    Turning a straight spindle???

    How do y'all go about it? I was turning some ¾" dowels today, about 9-12" long. Started with square stock, rounded with a roughing gouge. Parted down to the desired diameter at both ends. Then finished turned to size with a 1" skew. They looked straight, but after sanding I realized that I had...

    straight edge

    Wondering what most of you use regularly as a straight edge. Thinking of buying either a Starrett or one of the Veritas ones. But wondering if that money is better spent on something less. Veritas has the aluminum ones that are certainly reasonable, but wondering about accuracy long term...

    Straight square table legs

    I am being asked to make the understructure for a marble table top. The requestor is adamant that the legs be straight and square. No taper, no bead, no flutes, no detail. IMHO, that's ugly. But then again, if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then taste is in the mouth of the requestor...

    Inexpensive straight edge

    While working in Bill Anderson's beautiful shop during a hand planing class, we used some aluminum straight edges. They seemed to work well. The tip is he purchased an 8 foot length of aluminum bar stock from his local BORG. Cut a 4', 2' 18", and 6" piece, filed the cuts, and drilled a hole...

    Question about rabbet router bit vs straight bit

    I am in the process of setting up to make a large number of cabinet drawers. When it comes to cutting the rabbet cut (1/4") for the drawer bottom I would like to set up my router table to make all these cuts leaving my tablesaw set up for straight cuts, kind of like a production line. I have a...

    Rikon 10-345 Bandsaw...Setting the Record Straight

    I have attached a few pics showing the upper wheel tensioning assembly for the new Rikon 10-345 18 inch bandsaw. I had noticed that it is very difficult to tension/track the upper wheel with any repeatability at all. Rikon tech support has been very helpful, but, I believe they unlocked the...

    Free hand routing w/ straight edge

    When routing a daddo with a single straight edge like a Clamp-n-guide, what is the best side to run the router on. I would think that the router would have the tendency to pull to one side, and that would be the side to have the guide on. Dave:-)
