We love new tools.
Clamping parts on one side of your vise can cause it to rack, diminishing clamping force and possibly causing damage to the mechanism. Lee Valley sent us their simple and clever Vise Rack Stop to test and review for you.
Lee Valley's Veritas Quick Release Front Vise features an easy to use quick release lever and very smooth operation. It has been on my bench for years and is still going strong! See how it works.
In this video, Ralph reviews Rockler's new Bench Dog brand Push Bloc. Although they won't replace GRR-RIPPERs at the table saw, he finds them useful at the router table.
The Bench Dog branding means you can buy them from Rockler as well as many local hardware stores and home centers.
Squaring your saw table to the blade is a critical factor in both the accuracy and safety of your saw. Lee Valley sent me their Caliper Holder to test and review for you.
Geeky fun at its best! We use the LogMeIn app on an iPad to control a CNC Shark remotely. Not terribly practical, but loads of fun!
In this review, Ralph provides a quick demonstration using Eagle America's T-slot bit. This bit (#143-0982) makes a slot to fit a 1/4-20 bolt head just like aluminum T-track, allowing you to make a T-track anywhere.
