Axminster Carlton Chuck

This Canadian chuck system appears to be directly descended from the Nova chuck. Expanding contracting jaws are available in three sixes designated 1, 2 and 3 . The Stronghold comes standard with 2 mid-size jawrs and a screw center. These jaws are a tad deeper than Nova's and they've also added serrations at the base of the jaws to grasp the work more securely, making them better for deep end-grain work that really stresses a chuck. My favorite feature on this chuck is its key-tightening...

Tablesaw Alignment Tools

Wood Bending

There are plenty of ways to align your saw blade to your table-saw's miter gauge slot. You can simply compare the distance at the front and the rear of the blade with a combination square or a thin stick see AW 39 , or you can measure the distance with a caliper. While such methods are adequate for blade alignment, there are times when you would like to measure other variables, such as fence flatness and blade angle. I recently checked out two measuring devices the TS-Aligner and the Infinitii...

After planing the bottom surface of the table flat and squaring the ends, Odate made two dovetailed beams to connect the top to the legs. The dovetails are sharply angled for strength in this soft wood and the beams and their sockets are slightly tapered from end to end to assure a tight fit. Here, one of the beams is ready to be driven home with a kakeya, a mallet sometimes called a commander. To prepare the tenons, Odate first saws and pares the deep grooves lyetween the tenons see photos,...
