I bought the optional floor stand, but you could also mount the JS 1010 on a workbench. The heart of the tool is the router carriage. It clamps around most 3' 2-in. to 4, i-in.-dia. router motors and travels up to 23 in. laterally and 4 in. vertically. Maximum plunge travel is XA in. A cushion of air, fed to the router carriage from a reserve tank makes the router feci weightless during vertical cuts. It took about four hours to get the JS 1010 up and running,...

While visiting a friend a few years ago, I spotted a little wooden gift-shop toy with the catchy label. Bullshit Grinder, on his desk. When you turned a little crank the two perpendicular dovetail slides ran back and forth endlessly. I was intrigued by the way the circular motion of the crank was transformed into the linear motion of the sliding dovetails. On closer inspection, I found the cranking motion wasn't circular at all, it was oval. I forgot all about the grinder until I spotted a...

TJie Space-Saving Alternative to a Radial A rni Saw wider stock (up to 12 in.) than you can on a chop saw. When working wide stock with most of these saws (the AEG is the exception), you first pull the cuttcrhcad forward above the stock, then plunge the blade down in the stock and push the blade back toward the fence. This way the blade can't climb up on the stock and jerk toward you uncontrollably as it can with a radial arm saw. (There's another saw on the market that can make miter and bevel...

Gel Stain

When wood grain swirls to the surface, end grain is exposed, allowing liquid stains to penetrate deeply and cause splotching. Gel stains don't penetrate deeplv, so they produce a'more even appearance. upside down. Others, such as M in wax, are much thinner and will run if you apply them too thickly to vertical surfaces. The thicker and more thixotrop-ic the gel stain, the less it will penetrate and cause splotching. Gel stains are ideal for use on woods that are prone to splotching, such as...

It's also important to use stopped grooves in the stiles so the grooves won't show at the top and bottom of the finished door. I routed the stiles and the bottom rail against a straight fence, but for the curved top rail, I started the cut against a single-point fence to prevent the bit from...

Now I'm in the fast lane, hard at work editing, and trying to fit my machines into a new, much smaller shop . the basement. Some of my bigger machines are never going to fit there, so I've been adapting the smaller tools to give them a bigger capacity like my Hitachi sliding compound miter saw. This...

Wooden Stick

When you plug in the charger the electric current will draw off the rust. I usually wait about 10 hours, then shut off the current and retrieve the object. After using soap and water to wash off the greasy black residue, I dry the object with an old towel and spray it with WD-40. Now that cork pads are hard to find, I've discovered that a chalkboard eraser makes an excellent sanding pad. It's just the right size to grip and the felt provides a flat, yet soft...

I enjoy the communication between the work, the tools and my hands, and I find hand-cut joints arc as accurate as can Ik . Mortise and tenon joints are particularly easy to cut by hand. They're simple to make and it doesn't take years of practice to produce joints that fit well. The drawings here show the technique I like to use, which is fairly conventional. But there arc a few tips I'll stress that can...
