    • 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.

      Very simply, we need to subtract the width of all mortises created from...

    • A Review of the Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence
      By member twistsol
      Over the years, Iíve 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....

    • Katana Edge Band Set from MLCS
      By member twistsol
      Summary
      The setup for both bits in the set took some time to get right, but once set up properly the bits made mostly clean cuts. The reasoning behind the bearing placement on the bit set escapes me but all in all, the set performed well and functioned as advertised. ...

    • FlashCell cordless battery-less power screwdriver Review
      By member LCHIEN
      I have owned a Coleman Flashcell screwdriver since about 2009. it does not replace the drill driver (Craftsman 19.2V C3 drill driver with lithium ion cells and clutch) but it replaces small powered screwdrivers for doing repetitive screw driving. The no longer sell them and haven't for several years. I've been wanting one to have handy in the garage shop or house rather than running back and forth.

      The advantage of a cordless, batteryless driver is that it uses a supercapacitor to drive...

    • HF Silver & Deming Drill Bits
      By member Bill in Buena Park
      In a recent shop project to make a lathe chuck / center organizer, I needed to drill some holes to accommodate the MT2 shanks of my live centers and drill chucks. For my purposes (a nice snug fit at a certain height), I needed 11/16 holes. None of my forstner bits (also HF) were this size. For some threaded spur center inserts, I needed 9/16 holes. No love there among the forstners either.

      So I found this set of the Silver and Deming bits at HF: http://www.harborfreight.com/silver-and-deming-drill-b...
