A Week In The Workshop 159


Direct link - https://youtu.be/QvIU9-tveR0


Busy week in the workshop this week. I completed the #router #bench swap-over - more or less, anyway, and with a few niggles along the way - and I found the missing parts of the old #Triton router. I also bought a new thing (old thing) to take another run at - if the definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result, then we're well on track!


There’s also a sneak preview of a couple of the gift list items - links below for your convenience. I’ll put the full list to on Wednesday, as planned.

Thank you as always for your amazing support, enjoy the rest of the weekend, and I’ll catch you in the next one.

Glad it got resolved.

Couldn't help notice that your under-mount router sounded like a jet engine when you turned it on. I use the Triton 3 1/4 for my under-mount router and have trouble sometimes figuring out if it's on it's so quiet. Like the table redo, especially that wax you used to finish it off.

Just realised that it also has the extractor connected, so that may have been what you heard as well James!

Like you with the Triton doweller I had fun with biscuit joiners. I managed to drop my Elu on a concrete floor and it did not do its alignment any good. My tool dealer let me try several and I had the same problem that you had, I will not name names …

Suffice to say that I ended up with a DeWalt, which is spot on. Does not get used much these days, since you forced me to get a domino! 😋

Cheers Andrew. Yes, I’ll be interested to try this one out. Just out of the box it’s street ahead of the previous three. 👍

I’m enjoying the different camera angles you have been adding to the recent videos Peter, this one with the under bench ‘hello’ and you digging through a pile of offcuts in the clamp racks one. Makes things a bit more interesting. Is it as a result of the course you did earlier in the year?

Thanks Geoffrey. It was in the back of my mind, yes, just trying to get away from the ‘talking head’ introductions. One comment that comes up time and time again on my first ‘cabinetry basics’ video is how funny people find the guiderail falling on my head, and while I don’t want to turn it into a slapstick channel, I can at least try and create a bit more action into otherwise pretty ordinary intros. We’ll see how that goes down when the video goes live in a couple of weeks! 😂👍

I bought the router lift and motor from Rutland to suppliment their original one I bought 5 years ago. Vast improvement and it work brilliantly plus it's a lot cheaper than Jessem

I have the Rutland lift/motor and am very pleased. Denis Hooked on Wood reviewed it and likes it albeit the China Tools version rather than the rebadged Rutland.
