We've all been there. You're just routing along when suddenly you notice that the router bit has slipped! It's come loose in the collet and dropped down, creating an ugly divot in your workpiece. What could you have done to prevent this disaster? Nick shows you exactly what to do, and it's not want you think. The solution to this pernicious problem is deceptively simple.

The editor of this video deserves some credit. The end card mentions, on all their videos, Travis Blair. And I think Travis does some of the responding to comments as well. If this one was spliced together by Travis, then kudos to him!

Jim is a consummate craftsman. And by that I mean not only is he exceptional; everything he builds is exceptional. He doesn’t have a woodworking specialty; woodworking IS his specialty. That’s why I was extremely fortunate when he applied to run the workshop at Hands On! magazine, where I was editor. His craftsmanship made that publication sing and dance. The same is true of the books I wrote and produced. I had a team of uniquely talented people, Jim foremost among them. His consummate craftsmanship is one of the reasons we sold millions upon millions of books.

I chose Jim for our first shop tour because I think he has something vital to say to woodworkers just starting out as well as those who want to advance in this craft. As you're about to find out, you don’t need a big shop. You don’t need a lot of tools. What you need is well thought-out, meticulously organized passion. And if you wonder what I mean by that, you are going to have to watch the shop tour.

It's like finding out Henry Ford drove a Mercedes.

From YouTube Comments:

"Workshop Companion
Jim has a Shopsmith planer, belt sander, and shop vac -- not as many as you'd think. And you'll be glad to know that I'm not looking to post tool porn. For me, this is an extension of the way I used to put books together. You talk to people who are exceptionally good at what they do and see what you can learn. Jim is exceptionally good at doing world-class woodworking in a one-car garage. I've seen enough posts on Reddit to know that space is a factor for many people who want to get into woodworking, and it needn't be."

It would be better for Nick if you posted your comments on his YouTube video page. He reads them and responds to questions. Every time this happens, the video gets a little boost.
