    I just put a short one together today. A bit of a change in pace on project videos. I will get back to editing the oil cabinet build video in a while. Variety is the spice of life they say, so I might as well mix it up a bit. I have to give a big shout out to Jim for helping me out and shipping the part directly instead of dealing with UPS claim service, which kinda felt like the inquisition.

    Jim,
    Great to hear that BTP-Jim hooked you up and all is fine in the Watertone woodshop.
    My Axial missed delivery yesterday because of damage to the “shipping label”, I hope they did not play soccer with mine as they did with yours.

    Thanks, Jim, always enjoy your videos.

    Router plane is on my wish list, too.

    Well, first day of the year and I spent it editing video. Took most of the day and uploading it takes another hour and a half. So much for what they call high speed internet….lol

    Happy New Year!

    It is always nice to watch someone else work 🙂 How well does the dust collector work on that saw ?

    Not too bad. There is some in the bag anyway. I will be trying to make an extension on the bottom to see if it catches more. There is quite a gap, as you can see, between the bottom of the chute and the top of the table.

    Another great video. Hand cut half-laps came out looking nice. Not easy to do.

    I’ve never seen a homemade router plane jig like that! I might try that. 🙂 Any tips you can give?

    ThanX for the video, Jim. The Essential oil cabinet is coming along.

    I’ve never seen a homemade router plane jig like that! I might try that. :) Any tips you can give?

    Use a piece of softwood, it seems to grip better. I also found that a bit larger piece is easier to hold and manipulate. It would also be better if you had an older chisel with no handle. I wasn’t about to take it off my good Narex. The handle weight makes it a bit awkward. Other than that, watch Paul Sellers videos on it. I have seen a few of them hand built using an Allen key (hex wrench) for the blade. Also known as a “hags tooth” or “grandmas tooth” plane.

    On new years eve I found out I won one (a Stanley # 71) from a channel I subscribe to on YT. Matthew Morris at the MM Wood Studio got a new Veritas one for Christmas and so he gave it away. I sent him a link to my second video and he was sufficiently confident that I would use it like it should be, instead of sitting on a shelf. I looked it up and the Veritas blades will fit it if I need them. I think the narrower ones will be most useful. Easier to push through the wood and I can make several passes if needed to get the wider slots done.

    Softer wood makes sense! Thanks for the inspiration, I will try this until I get a “real” router plane.

    In order to make the table saw move in the directions I need it to, I need casters on all 4 corners. I am not a fan of this arrangement, it gives less control than having 2 wheels fixed. But I have to make compromises in order to get the shop arranged (or rearranged) the way I want it.

    So, starting with getting the Bosch saw, and needing a place to put it, began a series of events that lead to the whole shop changing. This is just one of the events along that path.

    JDO that came out pretty nice and being able to get it where you need it is a big help.

    Oh, I should mention, before someone points it out. There were plywood spacers above the old wheels too. I put new ones in because of the change in bolt pattern, so that is not the reason the saw was out of level with only one side changed.

    Thanks, it works as I had planned, there is more to the story and you will see the reason why I needed all 4 to be casters…..maybe on the next shop update video. I think the next one will be more on the essential oil rack when I get it edited.

    A shop is always a work in progress. This should make yours a little more flexible.

    Yes, I am well pleased with how things are coming along. I am going to get the camera out and do another shop tour because so much has changed. It will be a while until it comes out though. I have a couple more to edit first. Going to try to get another out this week.
