Re: How Good are Biscuit Jointers

... awash with funds or intends to make heavy use of a BJ, then I'd suggest considering a router bit instead as a low cost entry to biscuit jointing. Wealden supply some of the best value/quality cutters - No commercial connection just my goto supplier for all router bits. Bob ** It is the Makita ...

... underside is completely finished. The bulk of the material was trimmed off with a straight 12mm rebate cutter, but the final cut was made using a Wealden 6mm spiral down cutter which leaves a far superior edge.

Re: When is an ovolo not an ovolo ?

When it comes to router cutters and spindle knives I tend to go for the diagram rather than a name. In the case of your wealden illustration, isn't simple a matter of the bearing size realtive to the bottom of the left hand cutter that either gives the profile in your upper picture ...

Re: Drop-in router table

... we go. I am indebted to Steve Maskery who told me this approach. First you need a top-bearing guided cutter. This is a nice chunky one from Wealden. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1877/43375863465_6ddb456d19_c.jpg First position the router table top where you want it. I originally was going ...

The reverse; there are loads of different factories in the Far East (Chiwanese) that make machinery. Much of Ax's stuff (for example) is made by a number of different suppliers in far flung locations - Rob

Re: Wealden Again

I’ve put them to the test again though I sent in the order on Sunday. Hopefully should receive the cutter tomorrow Tuesday. It’s for a 10mm straight cut, unfortunately I’ve got a WoodRat one but it’s too tall for my current purposes. I also ordered a Forstner bit from Workshop Heaven so it will be i...

Re: Raised fielded panels in ???

Re: Boxes

Sort of Rob, making 6 but they’ll all be slightly different. I’m going to use my Wealden Lock Mitre cutter which covers the width range 12 to 16mm. I’d prefer it to be a bit thinner but am going for 12. I might make some later with fancier joints like dovetails. ...

Lip & Spur drills
