Spent the WE testing and building new brackets, jigs, etc.. on new Workbench. Posted earlier thread:

http://www.ncwoodworker.net/forums/showthread.php?t=36869

Hopefully these pics will illustrate just how functional this new table is!

This pic shows all the jigs set up. They consist of a right angle clamping element for setting up face frames (pocket holes, etc..).

Shop Made Festool Bracket (18 gauge) Bent at 90deg with slots, etc...

This jig is angled exactly at 90 Deg with hold down clamps. Used with low angle clamp.

Side clamping, shown in earlier thread.

Jig/bracket is set up for a Cross Cut, cc capacity up to 24 in. Can also be used for routing, jigsaw cuts as well. Rip capacity w/b 8 ft.

First cut of this toobie, went very smoothly. Rockler's bench cookies, underneath, as not to cut the MDF table.

So far, Im very thrilled with how it works, and can't wait to create, make new jigs as conditions dictate!

Thanks for Looking!

That is definitely very functional. Do you use that set up instead of TS? Since you can use a router instead of the plunge saw, you wouldn't even miss having a dado blade.

James: Thanks! :thumbs_up

Manfre: I've only begun testing out its functionality. I plan on making some kind of "angled fence" in order to make precise angled cuts. Currently setting up using a protractor and clamping piece at angle. I will be evaluating on upcoming projects for its effectiveness.

So far alot of fun, checking out its limits. Now need to go from "Theory" to "Practice".

I also plan on posting completed WW ing projects using this new approach.


Thanks,
Matt

Nice set up there! Toss the cookies and put your workpiece on the MDF top. You'll get much smoother cuts. Fill up the kerf on the table with Bondo when it bothers you. Better yet...go ahead and cut clean through it like I did. It's gonnna happen:rotflm: Seriously...If you happen to do it tape a piece of masking tape on the bottom and pack the kerf full of Bondo.

Thanks Wayne,

I want this table to be like the "Swiss Army Knife" of Tables. I don't know how many Jigs/attachments, I will end up with, but sure will be fun to find out.

Thanks for all your kind words !

VM appreciated,

Matt
