Pocket Holes without a jig?

I know I saw a thread using the table tilt and horizontal drilling to setup pocket holes. But- how does this compare to getting something like a Kreg R3 jig? The jig seems like it might be faster, but it is limited to 1 1/2 " board thicknesses whereas the SS should be more flexible but likely s...

Re: Do you want a potpourri or are you driving?

Oh - my day job is in light/lighting .

This device is unique and is a first attempt at doing something thats not currently being done in the LED lighting market.

Just something I'm working on in my spare time.

Thanks for liking the design !

Re: Do you want a potpourri or are you driving?

The thread says "unrelated to woodworking"..well I can say this is unrelated, but I still used the Shopsmith as a base for assembly operations ! It worked well as a solder and grounded assembly station. Its a home designed PAR38 narrow beam LED lamp. lamp.jpg After assembly-starting to loo...

Re: Serial number lookup

Just looked at mine out of curiosity. 51-001381 I guess this puts me in roughly Feb 1986 timeframe. The 3 months Jan/Feb/Mar '86 not being assigned, but using the Apr start # 2291 and a total of 90 days (Jan-Mar) minus weekends (22 days) means they were producing on average 33 units per day. Does th...

Re: Switch exploded?

A couple reasons why this might happen : If the current draw was larger than expected - the switch has a power rating though I don't know what the rating on that switch might be. This would indicate some other problem downstream (motor, etc) which I hope isnt the problem for you. Weak contact betwee...

Re: Plant Shelf

Re: Please help on bandsaw choice

I havent had any real complaints about the SS bandsaw...except this one-which may simply be my lack of creativity in finding a solution or not having anything else to compare to. The distance between the blade and the plastic body of the bandsaw limits me to roughly an 11" wide cut. Normal band...
