I have the first edition and Jim Tolpin has written an updated version. I did not read the whole book, just looked at the pictures;) . Well I did read some because I have made several jigs from the books and still use them today. The jigs and other tips are very well illustrated and information is easy to understand to build the jigs. I would recommend this for anyone from newbie to experienced woodworker.

 

    He covers everything from tuneup , blades, jigs, crosscuts ripping , accessories, and grooves and dados and much more. You can get it as low as 1.99 at Barnes and Noble or 4.99 at Thrift Books.

 

  I have on my saw the magic fence pictured below. it can be added to for tenon jig that can do more than tenon.218209694_TSfenceextension.jpg.113c6537366e7bf264bd1a679419135a.jpg423182450_TSMagicfencemed.JPG.6cbda3a50d11abeb8e319e895cae68d8.JPG

Gerald, great book review, and thank you for submitting it.

I changed the title to reflect the book title, per our forum guidelines seen at the main page for this Book Review Forum.

Thanks again Gerald, and great job!

Course instructor recommended this book, and I found it for under $10 (with shipping), and well worth the effort.  I haven't implemented all the ideas I'd like, but the first few have been very handy.  It's amazing how many wood books are out there, and real bargains if you scratch around a bit.
