Default Re: Bridge City Toolworks "Jointmaker Pro Upgrade" Review . . .

If you check John's blog, you'll see that he's presently working on a rip system. I don't know anything about it other than that. It may have nothing to do with the JMP...

In an effort to get more info up on a regular real time basis - I'm going to be posting "Tweeter-Like Posts" of specific JMP moments in the workshop.

In the following shots I'm really ecstatic over the wood-clamp from the JMP-sw that Michael sent me to test out.
It holds even a thin profile very securely and works well with any of the JMP versions. (below I'm using it on the JMP-v1 version to cut a miter)
You also see me using only one of the two that come in the set.

(It only comes standard with the JMP-sw, but I'm told it will be available as an accessory item) - one could also grab some maple and make one - oneself.

In the third shot I'm using the CT-15 to set the blade angle.
Remember, although there is a degree scale on the forward plate - it's always best to set the blade to the work.
(There are flip-stops to use if you need to go back to that angle at a latter date)

Two things,

First, as a push for me to come up with creative uses for the JMPv1 & v2 I have come up with a "Tip-10" plan - where I will be posting a tip (or jig) every 10 days over at the BCTW forum.


Secondly,

To those that have the JMPv1 version & since the JMP upgrade deadline seems to be coming up (for all new versions as well - Feb 5th) the title of the first Tip (jig) is titled......
"What the hell am I gonna do with the old tables/ways after I order the upgrade rails?"......... here.... Bridge City Tool Works Forum
