      Originally written by Norm Havens and re-posted here.

      Editor's Note: The site where this article appeared originally is now gone. I had this article saved as a .pdf file from years ago and resurrected the article from that.

      December 3, 2000 I must be totally star-crossed this week . . .

      "Trouble comes in threes," didn't someone say? This week I've already dinged the blades of my new planer, nearly dropped my router from the accessory table, and now...

    • CBN Wheels - making Tormek Obsolete?

      CBN grinders; Are They Making Tormek Obsolete?

      That might seem like a bold statement, but my 20 minutes of use of the CBN wheels accomplished more than a couple of hours did on my Grizzly “Tormek” knock-off. I do know that the Tormek has MUCH better wheel than the Grizzly, but the problem with both is the speed - SLOW.


      Explanation for those not familiar with good grinding systems:
      Most bench grinders come in either of two speeds 1500 RPM (or 2000) or 3500...

    • Festool Domino Settings for Evenly Spaced Mortises
      By member twistsol
      I was in the shop this weekend and was trying to figure out the math for the settings on the Festool Domino to space the mortices evenly and centered across a cabinet front to back. After a bunch of trial and error with my math, I gave up and got close enough and cut the Domino slots for most of the cabinets before my shop time ran out. It was still bugging me, so I figured it out on the plane on the way to work.

    • A Review of the Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence
      By member twistsol
      Over the years, I’ve had multiple router tables. Everything from a small aluminum Craftsman benchtop model, to the router mount on my BT3000, to a custom built version in my old ultimate tool stand and another custom built one in the wide table of my saw. In every case there was something missing or just not quite up to par. The Sommerfeld table and fence change all that and meet nearly all my criteria....
