  1. Alright the old copy and paste into a word document and save as whatever you want. My computer is 2013 edition don't see the snipping tool anywhere, could do a print screen and save it that way to I guess.
  2. Guys just as a piece of info how would we go about saving a post to our own computers?? Not really from the free for all forum but from any forum topic like questions asked and answered.
  3. Found it!! Could you give me a model number perhaps was just coming home to order the version I posted.
  4. Never had good luck working with mdf, even bought the special conformat? screws, predrilled and the material still split on me. I have a Porter cable 3 1/2 horse plunge router so have plenty of power to work with the larger bit.
  5. Guys, thanks for the suggestions and I'll be getting the original bit I inquired about. I would love to see some pics of your sleds for doing this?? Or suggestions for making a good solid version, I've seen quite a few on YouTube that when the router is being pushed back and forth that the carriage dips in the center under the weight.
  6. Guys, I have a rough slab to flatten and am making a router sled, to do the work I found an Whiteside 6220 router bit which looks like it would do a good job. Found some carbide insert ones that are not in the budget, ($100) any others I should look at? While I'm asking I'd love to be able to afford the Woodpecker version I have a beer budget can you guys share your router jig setups please?
  7. I like it as a novel solution for a drawer that was already build but if building from scratch I think its more practical to build two slimmer drawers. Doing it like in the video your loosing the extra storage from the width to build it in the existing drawer. Thanks for posting the video link doing from my cell phone was just not possible for me.
  8. Good afternoon guys, I have been fooling around with a set of drawers to add to an old work table. Trying different styles and designs of slides, wood, commercial version full extension. While surfing came across the Wood whisperer's drawer in a drawer video, even posted a question to ask why build this design as opposed to just making a second drawer. What are your opinions on this? "Double your drawer space" on YouTube
  9. Guys, found this calculator and it worked perfectly. https://www.blocklayer.com/trig/righttriangles.aspx
  10. great project with accuracy to boot. Can you show it in action on the project? You got me very curious.
  11. Very nice build, the lamination glue up looks like a well thought out process. Did you have to allow for any spring back on a piece this thick? How much more open time does the glue provide?
  12. John, I'm making a version of the Paulk workbench to work out side in my driveway. Going to install t trak in the top and add a pipe clamp on the end to use as a vise with that. No dogholes like this but will make the cutouts for the tools underneath. My table saw is right in my garage so this will be more like an assembly table. Low ceiling in the basement limits projects during the winter months. The main reason I asked the question was to learn how to simply calculate the angle cuts myself.
  13. I just wish I could remember it. Was good at math MANY moons ago.
  14. John, this is perfect a way for ME to do it in the future. I see now that it is just two triangles side by side. Very much appreciated. Pat
  15. So I need the top of the two boards in the center to be at 35" @ 30 degrees of angle
  16. Guys, I'm looking to see if there might be a calculator that I can input a length of a giving piece of wood and what the height would be if it was cut parallel to 20 or 30 degrees.
  17. Larry, the price on that sander is fantastic too bad I live in NJ. It would be sold otherwise.
  18. Butcher, (for the fact I don't know your real name;-))I think I commented on your bench when you first showed it and even asked a question. It is still a real great piece of work, I would love to hear a little more about how did your mapping, I have a need to build a hand power tool storage area/cart something and would like to learn> Maybe add it to your original thread to keep it together. It doesn't matter if you post it here I don't mind either way. Thanks Pat
  19. Thanks for the kind words. It came out nice I thought. The brass was just not needed. If I had any might have used it but not to buy.
  20. made this one for my use and after a couple adjustment on the screw for blade thickness it worked perfectly.
  21. Send it to me, you won't miss it anyway.
  22. Good morning guys, I need to make myself one of these and am wondering you have made one and could share yours? I have looked thru YouTube and have found ones that are super simple from a piece of wood with a screw at one end to some very nice looking ones. The bulk of these videos don't go into the differences and the extra things the "fancier" ones can do. Am leaning towards this one by Mafe, https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/37513.
  23. It turns out that the locking lever can just be lifted forward and set down one notch back further on the large hexnut that captures it.
