  1. Thanks Mick I'll check it out.
  2. Oop didn't leave the link to the tape I was asking about https://www.uline.com/Product/Detail/S-6759/Double-Sided-Tape/Double-Sided-Masking-Tape-2-x-36-yds?pricode=WB3612&utm_source=Bing&utm_medium=pla&utm_term=S-6759&utm_campaign=Tape&utm_source=Bing&utm_medium=pla&utm_term=S-6759&utm_campaign=Tape&msclkid=999660bb14f51d0b20723e72768ee61c&gclid=CKHW0qHGyukCFRAsfgodrl8LWA&gclsrc=ds
  3. I bought 2 rolls of double sided carpet tape I'm guessing 6/7 yrs. ago and finally used them up it was great stuff. I bought some plastic laminate for a router table build it was the same flooring ect. store I got the 2 rolls I just ran out of, I asked if I could get a couple rolls again they said they didn't carry the old brand he brought out this 4" roll of double sided tape that they use now I bought it. I went home and started building a template for my router plate, I taped some rips to the plywood I was using for the template BB for the template and the rips routed out the recess in the template and holy crap I had a hell of a time separating the template from the rips there was de-lamination from both the template and the rips it was a failure. This new tape is just to sticky the old tape that I was happy with was discontinued. I found this stuff on the web and was wondering if anyone has used it or have another brand that's not as bad ass as this new roll I've got now. Thanks for any input you may give.
  4. Looks good Richard! When I was in my twenties I was driving through town with a buddy. An old man was crossing the street using a cane my buddy said I can't wait to be able to carry a cane. I looked at him like he was crazy, he looks back at me and says you know to beat the punks with
  5. I play pool or, did until all this Corona virus started. I played about three times a week played league one night a week and, played in a couple tournaments, you need a pocket full of quarters to feed the tables. A friend gave me this quarter dispenser ( a plastic cylinder with a spring inside it) It was exactly like this one it fell off a table and broke the catch lip off the top. I saved the spring and, being bored I decided to make one on my lathe so I turned a 1 1/4" cylinder now I needed a 1" all the way through well centered because there was only 1/8" of meat on the edges and needed to be a smooth shaft so the quarter didn't hang up all I have is a drill press I wanted to drill halfway from one end and halfway through the other end. After much cussing and many test runs on scrap wood I came on the solution. I drilled a 1" hole halfway through some scrap 3/4 ply than drilled a small hole the thickness of a 8d nail I drilled the same hole in a square blank of wood the drilled hole worked for alignment on my lathe. I turned a 1" dowel to fit in the 1" hole in the 3/4 ply I cut a 8d nail so it went through the ply and would stick through a sliced piece of the 1" dowel that sat proud of the ply about 1/2", I put the nail in my hand drill and spun it against my grinder making a sharp point in the end now I have a piece of 3/4 ply with a dowel sticking out 1/2" and, a sharpened nail centered through all this. I put my 1" forstner bit in my drill press lowered and locked the quill till it was just slightly above the sharpened nail I moved the plywood around until the sharpened nail and the point of the bit lined up and clamped the ply down to the table. My 1 1/4" cylinder has the center holes already established so I set one end on the sharpened nail bring the forstner bit into the other center hole drill through halfway then I flip the cylinder around and set it over the 1" dowel then drill through the other half and you get as smooth a shaft as you can get with a forstner bit. Anyway I could of bought another dispenser for less than $10.00 but this kept me busy for almost 2 days most of this was coming up with this drill press trick the turning and glue up I would have been done by lunch if I already had the drilling jig figured out.

    Walrus Oil

    I have no idea if it would react with the stain but, I am glad that no Walruses were harmed in making the stuff!
  7. I like watching Izzy I see nothing crazy with this method as long as your feed rate isn't bogging down the table saw or stressing the blade. I've never tried this method and, I wouldn't be afraid to try it now lets see those pictures of the rollers!

    Dado Stack

    I have a delta uni-saw it came with 2 different arbor nuts the one for regular saw blades is a nut/washer set up the washer is large in dia. and heavy gauge I'm thinking it is for stabilizing the blade, the other nut has no washer it is to be used for dado stacks. Maybe your set up is the same and you could get a different nut in my area we have a store Tacoma Screw that carries just about any screw or, nut maybe you a similar store in your neck of the woods who could help you get a smaller arbor nut.
  9. @drzaius that's what I found a steady feed rate was a big part of a crisp clean cut without burning. @Chestnut I did clean the old bit with some Simple Green wiped it dry oiled the bearing but, I didn't have the little diamond sharpening plates they're on the shopping list thanks guys.
  10. I'm building a book case for a friend out of walnut so I had an ogee bit I haven't used in... I don't know how long any way I'm getting multiple pieces out of a wide board then cutting off individual pieces, rinse and repeat. Well my first attempt was less than desirable burn marks, small chips etc. so I went back into my memory and remembered the old add tape to the fence trick run the board through remove the tape, run the board through again for a clean up pass I still wasn't happy and was thinking about going to town for a better ogee bit (25 mi. round trip) screw that so my new plan was 2 layers of tape to the fence and one layer on the table I ran the board through took one layer of tape off, ran board through took second layer off, ran it through then took the tape off the table (you guessed it) ran the board through one last time a little light sanding I got a very crisp profile, no burning and, no chipping ripped it off on the table saw and did this 5 more times ( I made a couple extra in case I screw up ). Anyway I got some quality trim with a old crappy ogee bit with the old blue tape trick on steroids.
  11. Why don't you like it for general use, is it because of the weight? I did find the Triton bushings for sale $140 geeze loueeze I guess I just bought a table router!
  12. I have PC routers (2) and an assortment of bushings. I just bought a Triton TRA001 3 1/4 HP router it's being shipped. I'm just wondering if anyone has one and if my existing bushings are compatible wit new Triton router I use bushings a lot with different jigs and, wondering if there are bushings for the Triton or a base plate that accepts my existing bushings? Thank for any information on this, also are you satisfied with your Triton? It looks like it has some nice features like micro adjustment, fixed and plunge on the same set up, I'm looking forward to getting my hands on this router any insight would be welcome.
  13. Opps I see @treeslayer had the same answer.
