The pilot bearing on your router bit has to perform under extreme heat, dirt and friction. Eventually this wears out the bearing. Pilot Bearing Saver (PBS) is a new lubricant formulated exclusively for router-bit bearings. A couple of drops and your bearing will thumb its nose at heat and friction. If you use PBS regularly, your bearing will also last much longer. Available in either single tubes or packs of 6 or 12 tubes. (Price: 1 tube. $3.95; 6, $22.50; 12. $42.60)

Plate joiners have rewritten the book on basic joinery techniques, though manhandling the machines around the shop was sometimes awkward. Delta's new stationary plate joiner, Model 32-100, has changed that. The machine is a bench-mounted biscuit joiner with a small 8-in.xl2-in. adjustable worktable. Your hands are free to hold the wood against the fence. A foot control feeds the cutter blade into the work. The plate joiner performs all types of biscuit-joinery cuts, as well as dadoing and T-moulding operations. It features a handy complement of adjustments, stops, and clamps to facilitate set up and production. A 115-volt, 10-amp motor provides the power.

Ever wondered what wood turning is all about? Here are some invaluable information on how to make beautiful items out of wood! That one little strategy from A Course In Wood Turning that I implemented not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. I had never seen anything like it! Now, keep in mind that I had tried a lot of other products up until this point. You name it, I probably tried it! That’s how desperate I was to improve my skills with wood turning.
