This tip comes from Walter ... I love how he thinks! ... he took one of the silicon glue spreading brushes and pulled the bristle part off, which comes off quite easily, drilled a couple of holes in the base and now he can attach it directly to his glue bottle for an instant and perfect dispenser ... what a great idea, thanks, Walter.
This is something called Adventure tape, and like a lot of things, it was never designed for woodworking, but woodworkers are a creative bunch of people and they can often find good uses for things that others never dreamed of ... like using Adventure tape for clamping wood projects together during glue-ups. Especially projects that are unconventional in shape, circular or odd-shaped.
A couple of so years ago, the Magwitch people came out with an integrated fence and magnet system of their own. They come in 2 sizes, the one shown below is the smaller one, which fits best on my drill press deck. It's basically a metal fence with 2 magswitches attached, but what I like about this system is you can clamp wood vertically to it for vertical boring needs. I use this one now as my main fence/ clamping system. Because the sacrificial base is not attached it's easier to replace.
For some reason, this has popped up on my computer screen for years and I know just how hard the steel in these jointer knives is, I was quite sure IF this worked it would be tedious at best. And sure enough, not only was it very hard to figure out the correct angles, it was even harder to make sure the slots where the knives are inserted, that they were exactly the same depth so that all the knives align, and then it came to actually try to sharpen them with a stone. As I expected, not a go.
Cutting small pieces is always a danger you can help reduce that danger by first, making sure there is a good backing for the wood, where the fence of the miter saw is supporting the wood well, next ... keep your hands back by using a 2 prong holding stick that you can easily make using "Wheel Stems", which of course are rubberized so bottoms tend to grip the wood and best of all, holding the wood firmly and keeping your hands back is a much safer way or cutting smaller pieces of wood.
Here's a nice easy way of making a jig to trim glued boards that are uneven on both ends, as glued boards often are. find some flat plywood or even some MDF material and attach a strip of wood along one end. At right angles to that board, using a carpenter's square for example, carefully attach another strip along one side. In the photo below, the second strip is attached along the bottom of the jig and is at a perfect 90-degree location to the side attached board.
This one is only half bad. Using a push block with a router table is the only way to safely and accurately cross route wood. I'm not sure why someone thought that adding a cabinet door-pull to the push block was a good idea. I have medium to small hands and even my fingers were getting caught under the handle. Imagine if you were using this in some other sort of a machine or bit combination and for one reason or another things go back, like a blade or bit hitting a hidden knot. #woodworking
