Miter Saw Setup for Accurate Cuts

When I walk up to my miter saw and make a cut, I want to know for a fact that the cuts I’m making are accurate. Whether I’m making a 90-degree cut, an angled cut or a beveled cut, I put the same demands on the saw; do what I’m asking you to do. Accurately. SETTING UP YOUR MITER SAW Miter saw setup isn’t hard, and it’s something that needs to be done, even to a brand new saw. You’ve got to double check and make sure the saw is making the cuts you need. Instead of trying to use a square between the blade and fence, try this approach for checking your saw. Make a pair of cuts, and compare them to each other. This is a very accurate way to that your miter saw setup is good. Here’s a tip; the wider the boards are that you cut, the more accurate this test will be. WORKS FOR BEVELS AND ANGLES The approach shown here for miter saw setup works whether you’re checking the angle of your miter saw, or the bevel of your miter saw. The only difference is that you’ll use narrower boards to check the bevel. In both cases, make sure that the edge of the board that’s against the fence or down on the table is perfectly straight. A MUCH USED TOOL… If you’re like me, you’re using your miter saw all the time. Make sure that you’re using a miter saw correctly and, if you want to know more, but sure to have a close look at because we’ve got even more miter saw videos available for you.

How To Transfer A Picture To Wood

Comments have been disabled due to the amount of negativity I have received for saying Modge podge instead of Mod Podge. Or how I need to learn how to slow down when I speak. This video has over 170,000 views so you could imaging how many people told me I said Mod Podge wrong over the last year! Im now selling Scentsy here is my link :) COMMON QUESTIONS I GET ASKED Paper used? regular printer paper What printer can I use? laser or ink jet In this video I used laser (I forgot as my sister printed this for me) but over the years I have been using Ink jet. Can I use any Mod Podge? Yes How did I make the names? A vinyl cutter I use a Cricut maker Where do I get my contact paper for the vinyl?

Benefits of Parallel Jaw Clamps

If you’re working wood, you’re probably clamping parts together. That means you need to have good quality clamps in your shop. It’s really hard to beat the benefits of parallel jaw clamps. WHY PARALLEL JAW CLAMPS? I tell you what. The feature I like the best about parallel jaw clamps is that the jaws stay nice and parallel to each other. You may have experienced the jaws on other clamps canting and twisting as you apply pressure to the glue up. That distortion can easily migrate to the panel you’re putting together. If you glue in a twist, you’re never going to get it out. It’s simply not an issue with parallel jaw clamps. This helps keep your parts flat, which means less work for you later. Additionally, the jaws on these clamps are already padded. No need to add a shop-made clamp pad that never stays in place. With these clamps you can clamp like crazy, and never mar the surfaces of your project. Finally, keep in mind that these clamps are reversible. You can use them to squeeze, and to push parts apart. ACCESSORIZE As if the clamps themselves aren’t handy enough already, you can make them even more handy by adding accessories. Consider looking at: Blocks that allow two clamps to be used perpendicular to each other Bridges that allow two clamps to be put together end to end Extra wide pads that distribute the clamp pressure over a broader area. MORE ON GLUING Assembly is such a mainstream part of woodworking, we’ve got lots of info on this topic for you. Check out general information on using clamps for glue-ups, and also preventing clamp scars.

Lots of tools cross our paths, and every once in a while a tool really grabs our attention. The Nova drill press is a great example of that.

Let’s jump right into one of my most-loved features on this machine; electronic variable speed. No step pulleys, no belt to move…Changing speeds is as easy as turning the dial on a dimmer switch. You know what that means? You’re actually going to change the speeds when you’re supposed to. And the digital readout tells you exactly what rpm you’re using. Gotta love that. But wait, there’s more:

– 6” long stroke
– Easy to use depth stops, mechanical and electronic
– On board rpm guide based on type of drill bit, diameter of drill bit, and material being drilled
– Auto shut off when the bit hits your preset depth of drill
– Self start. The machine is capable of auto starting just above your work so you don’t have to hit the on switch
– Pilot setting. Great for round stock. The drill press starts on a low rpm, and automatically ramps up to the proper speed once the hole is started. No need to center punch.
– Capable of running in both forward and reverse
– Presets available (like buttons on a radio) that will take you to a specific rpm
– Brake. Big drill bit in the machine? No problem. The electronic brake will stop the bit when you shut the machine off so it doesn’t free wheel forever.
– Large table, great for woodworking.
