New Tips, Tricks, & Homemade Jigs Forum

We had some requests for a jigs forum so I finally added this. Hopefully it fills the need. Have fun!

Great idea. You should name it The Niki Forum.

Nathan.
I would like to thank you for this new forum on jigs , I know it is a big job running this site. And I think at times we all forget just what a great job you and the mods are doing. We all come here to share ideas and learn and this is because of you and this site.

Thanks Bruce.

This is only my opinion others may think differently.

I've thought about doing this every time I do a glue up.

I finally got sick of shaking down glue so I invested 10 minutes of time into this glue caddy.

Instead of using a 3/4 dog hole on my RT/bench I can set this caddy wherever I want to do my glue ups.

Using 3/4 BB PW...

the base is 10 1/2 x 5

the horizontals are 3 x 8 1/2

the verticals are 3 x 1 1/2

I used forstner bits for the holes...

1 1/8 for the 8 oz bottle

and 1 5/8 for the 16 oz bottle

As I've looked at it I've realized that there's a feature missing.

What is it?

Funny how a quickly project can become a prototype

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did in his
sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

No beer holder? Or no handle.... I'd go with the beer holder.

The tools don't make the craftsman....

It nice to see a "dead thread" resurrected.

Original date of 8-2008!
They don't hardly get any deader than this one Jeff, so thanks for "bumpin'" it. That's a cool idea for your glue bottles, but for me, I'd probably forget to close off the top and loose all my glue.....
When I'm working in a hurry , I just lay the bottle over on it's side so all the glue doesn't drain back down. That works pretty well, but as the level gets low, not so much. Maybe an 18 V powered glue applicator, I donno?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Nope but I like the way you think.

After I got it finished I realized I could have made the base longer and attached some kind of rectangular dish for a damp sponge in order to keep the tip of the bottle and my fingers clean.



Overkill.

I think I'll just use a disposable foam plate or something.

You could turn a shallow winged dish with a profile that has the wings (or one) firmly fitting under the top rack and the bowl of the dish fitting snugly onto the step and place it between the bottle nozzles

crosscut sled

Hope I'm putting this in the right place! Building my first sled (20" X 30" 1/2" Baltic Birch base), & have the Epe rails ready to install. Drilled & countersunk rails for small 3/4 jewelry box screws. Quit for the nite, & now wondering if they ae too small? Should I find some larger? Help!

I think you are supposed to start a new thread for your sled. Don't forget the pics.

I agree Al, this was supposed to be an announcement of the new thread when it was started in 2008. I don't see any reason for continuing this particular thread. It seems confusing to have this thread, still, within the thread that was started.

Sorry guys,

When I did the search for the actual thread I was in a rush and over looked the "new" part of the title.

I'll re-post in the correct thread.
