  1. My table saw is a 1947 Delta Uni and is extremely accurate. I had been using a digital Craftsman miter and it did the job well but I wanted to upgrade my miter. I looked at several Incra models as well as the new Kreg KMS7102 and after reading the Kreg reviews, I opted to buy it. The pricing wasn’t hateful at $140 and I was hoping that it would be as accurate and repeatable as promised. The assembly took about 20 minutes and wasn’t rocket science. There are 5 adjustable nylon set screws that you tension the slide in the miter slot to get a nice tight but movable fit. In my mind, the best option on this miter is a flip down stop that really makes short work of accurate and repeatable pieces. I cut 4 3” pieces of oak off the stop and checked the lengths of all four with a digital caliper. There was only .006 difference in the length of all four. I can live with that. The angle of the miter cuts is set with a pin that drops into a pilot hole. That is, you turn the miter to say 45 degrees, slip the pin in the pilot to secure the position and the lock down the miter. I cut a 22.5 and a 45 and checked them with a digital protractor. Both angles were spot on. The only potential negative that I can see is that you must be careful not to lose the brass locking pin. Or buy a spare. My final word on the miter is that it proves to be as good as the reviews and it is made in the USA. Another plus.
  2. I don't know if anyone is interested in this, but my not-so-favorite TV woodworker has been crowing about these clamps for the last couple of years. So while looking for EZ outs in Lowes this morning, I saw these clamps on clearance for $7.50, versus the regular price of $30. They are welding clamps, so the pads are slightly smaller than the woodworking ones, and the handles aren't padded....I don't see either stopping anyone from using these on wood. Anyway, if you want some, this may be as cheap as they get. They open to 5", and have a throat of 6"; and yes, they are made in China. Anyway, just thought I'd share.
  3. I'm looking for a t track with a stop and scale with cursor to add to a miter saw station. The Kreg looks good, but to put the three pieces together, it's running about $85 for the three parts that don't seem to be in a kit, but purchased separately. Anyone have a system they use and like?
  4. A great blog by one of my online mentors, Elia Bizzarri (ENJOY!) The following are my thoughts on drill bits for Windsor chairmaking. Bear in mind that I have used some of these bits (augers, bradpoints, etc.) daily for 15 years and other bits I have used infrequently. In these reviews, I am comparing well tuned examples of each bit. Poorly tuned bits will make an awful mess regardless of type. Spoon bits: The traditional bit of the Windsor chairmaker. Advantages – cuts clean holes even at extreme angles, thickness of shaving changes relative to hardness of wood being cut, is fun to use, operator can easily change angles at anytime. Disadvantages: Hard to sharpen. The diameter of the bit changes with many sharpenings. The shortness of the bit makes it harder to sight accurately (this can be overcome with an extension). It requires skill to start the hole in the right place or a gouge to hollow a spot for starting the bit. New bits either don’t work or require considerable tune up. Old bits can be hard to find.

  5. FWIW, received notification from Kreg today about their new mobile work-center. A better mouse trap version of the B&D Workmate. It does have several interesting features and capabilities.
  6. Kreg announces their new Accu-cut cross and rip cut guide...add your own saw and good to go. Pretty affordable actually. Good way to support a US Manufacturer too. Kreg Accu-Cut
  7. Came across an oldie but goodie tool. Dad dropped a few things off at my place a year ago, I stashed them for later. During my cleaning I came back across this neat old Kreg Jig. I don't think he ever used it. He loved Wood Magazine, this would have been in the late 80's he purchased this, no doubt because it was Wood Magazine top choice rated. Even says so on the box lid. Pretty cool eh!
  8. I do regular volunteer work at a furniture bank. They have a Kreg Foreman, about 18 months old, that failed. When you plunge the drill bit, suddenly the power would shut off the motor. We determined the problem to be a broken wire underneath where it pivots. One of they guys called them and they acknowledged it was a known problem and would send him "parts." Yesterday, a whole new machine showed up. If you have one, you need to know about this before you throw it out.
  9. Just got notification of this yet to be available tool from Kreg. More information on Kreg's site but initial retail is $69.99.
