Re: Bridge City has a new owner

No experience with the new company, but it seems that they have abandoned John's approach of semi "one time tool" production and plan to keep inventory. I also see them selling through Lee Valley.

Re: Liquid hide glue

I haven't used it for general joinery, but it is a pure joy for veneer work or anything where exact placement is critical. Great for patching mistakes. Just apply a little heat (iron or hair dryer)...

I got an email today about "New Festool Routers", but was bummed out when I saw that they were talking about the 1010, 1400, and 2200 with imperial scales.

Re: SawStop Jobsite

Great feedback Paul! I'm a little disappointed in the specs you found, but I guess I'm comparing it to the cabinet saw. I would certainly think that the fence and alignment of the blade to the...

Hope you will keep us in the loop as you get to know your sawstop. I don't own one, but I took some classes at a school that used them and I really liked it.

Re: Would you cut your expensive veneer with a Track Saw??

The blade I use is part no. 496 307.

The track and the weight of the saw do a good job of keeping the veneer stack flat.

The technique is especially useful when you have several pieces of...

Re: Solid wood edging on plywood

If you are willing to invest in some router bits, there are many sets available to make "joined" plywood edge covers. You get one bit to cut the female part in the plywood and a matched bit to cut...

Re: To buy or not to buy that is the question?

I have three routers: 1010, 1400, and 2200.

The 1010 works best for me in small spaces and on jigs where I will be lifting it many times. It works well for dovetail jigs.

The 1400 is my go to...

Re: OF 2200 (with kit), CT 36 and UDD test drive.

I wouldn't take a deep bite with the OF2200 (or any 3 hp router) with a bit on a 1/4 inch shank. The collet is the week point.
