    Lock Miter Master Patented!!

    I still drop by to read the forums every now and then, but haven't posted in a bit, but thought this was newsworthy. Those who know me, may remember that in addition to woodworking, I also do a bit of tinkering. A few years ago I came up with a revolutionary box joint jig design which I was...

    Infinity tells me they started shipping again this week and should be all caught up with backorders early next week. They have more than enough LMMs on hand to fill all backorders and new orders for awhile. They also initiated a third production run. Also, I sent them a revised manual which...

    Lock Miter Master - update

    Yesterday I received a manufacturing proof copy of my new jig for setting lock miter bits. It was raw aluminum and had not received its colorful red anodizing, but it looked great anyway and worked fantastically. During the process of giving it a thorough wringing out, I came upon an...

    Question about magnets?

    It may seem O.T. but actually it is exactly in the right place. Anyone up on magnetism, magnetic lines of force, etc. theory and all that physics stuff? I am building something that will have three small, cylindrical rare earth magnets. The magnets are 1/8" dia. X 1/16" thick and will be...

    In the the process of looking for an existing model (marking gauge) in the 3D warehouse I noticed that the SketchUp logo had changed and I also kept seeing the name "Trimble" a longtime leader in GPS and navigation systems. I did a search on them and read the corporate history. Since the...

    Last piece of nursery furniture done!

    I finished the last piece for my grandson's nursery- I made a chest, changing table and crib last Spring. I built the box and shelves from birch ply and the faceframes from solid maple. Everything was joined with dadoes, lock miters, and glue only. It all went together very well despite...

    The "dreaded" Lock Miter Bit (or is that Mitre?)

    Or should I say the "soooooo easy" lock miter bit? I gotta be honest, I've owned a lock miter bit since the days when Carlo Venditto still owned Jesada Tools, but I never got around to using it! It often received a bad reputation on WW forums. First, since it is big, it can be a bit...

    Two chests and a changing topper for our new grandbaby are finally done! When grandma is feeling better will haul them north where they will join the crib we delivered a few weeks ago. They turned out fine, but if you are at all like me, you wouldn't be happy with them. I guess I have...
