    I have a Mafell chain mortiser that is purpose made for lock mortising. It cuts very clean with no tear out because it has 2 counter rotating chains. I have never used it for door joinery but would...

    I’ve had the JA Daley fence for 20 years and think it’s good for a manual fence. It started out on a upcut saw and now on the Graule radial. In both cases the fence is mounted to fixed outfeed...

    I’ve had several bit organizers that never were that handy to get at including the Festool one. I just made this one that sits on my mobile workstation. I can just carry it to a different location if...

    Bandsaw and sanding is a method I use for a lot of one off work. I have a nice Oliver 381 that makes that easy. But generally shaper is better if any quantity or in the case of windows and doors...

    Kevin,
    I generally use the feeder on long and flatter curves. Tight radius I prefer hand feed. On door and window parts the template can usually be screwed somewhere. In this picture I attached to...

    Upper right hand corner is a good example of a safe shaper jig with toggle clamps. Notice at the tailing end of the workpiece it is blocked. This is where a toggle can fail if not blocked or stopped...

    I have a 80mm diameter head similar to what Kevin linked. As he mentioned 8K rpm is on the low side for these type cutters. I run mine at 9 to 12K depending on what shaper it’s on. Those cutters like...

    Andy, don’t think it would be possible to have a portable swing chisel Maka type mortiser. There is a lot of pressure on the chisel requiring high clamping pressure of the workpiece. I had a piece...

    Thanks Brian,
    I have a Domino but only use it for odd joinery. Mostly connecting curve door and window parts that are difficult or too large to get to the mortiser. It would be tedious doing a lot...

    Hereís a pair of doors I made 42 years ago with a slot mortiser and loose tenons. Joints are as tight today as when they came out of the clamps. This is a fairly unprotected exposure as well. The...

    Mark,
    I was just referring to using the feeder only without a fence to get a glue joint. I’m sure with a feeder and fence you can get a glue joint.

    This reference dates us for sure Kevin. 😊
    Iím going to make one of these for my T17. Even with a SLR itís handy to have something that requires no setup to use. I cannot see a feeder ever working...

    For years before having a slider and SLR we did a lot of straight lining on a table saw with this Tage Frid style sled. I had two, a 8’ and a 12’.

    I had that same head in a SCM jointer. Just loosen the bolts, mine had a thin metric wrench. 17 or 19mm I think. There should be springs under the knives. I had the cast iron setting gauge with mine...

    I’ve used mine for 20 years with no issues. I’ve not used the Felder ones but they seem a heavier build. One thing I’ve noticed on Aigner extensions, mine and all I have seen have a slight bump on...

    Very happy with mine also Brian. Especially with your blower attachment and getting the right auger bushings. Yes, those Balestrini and Bacci tenoners and mortisers would make chair building easy. I...

    Kevin, I wasn’t aware the Bacci type oscillation was like the domino where the heel of the bit moves just a bit but the tip moves a lot. Interesting.
    I also got acceptable results and built hundreds...

    Warren, I find the Wadkin DM easy to set for flush joints. I usually just clamp a piece of tenoned stock in the machine and align the bit to the tenon by eye using the handwheel. Easier than the Maka...

    Mike, yes made long stock and rounded the edges on a a shaper. Also ran a couple sawcuts down the length for glue. When I was talking accuracy I am referring to the fit of the loose tenon. With the...

    I used one of these for several years for door joinery. It got used a lot because thatís all I had. Kevin pretty much pointed out the pro and con. Mine was on a cast iron Invincible J/P on the back...

    I looked up the Short Stop after you posted above Warren. Looks like a good way to retrofit. Is it adjustable for stopping time?

    Dave, this is timely as I want to put a brake on my Martin T17 saw. Right now it takes about 30 seconds to stop. I find this annoying and dangerous after using my T72 saw for 20 years that stops in...

    Mike, I think that’s the interesting part of it. Tilted all the way over you can drill, mortise or even run router bits from overhead. I think the fence is fixed and the shaft moves in and out for...

    When I said doors I meant the type of doors I build on my Martin and Hofmann shapers. This shaper would be capable of cabinet and cope- stick house doors I’m sure. I was impressed with it the same...
