Due to my inattention, I forgot that I didn't need to tilt the blade because I was using the Bias-arm, so I ended up cutting slightly- very slightly into my precision fence before I realized where the weird sound was coming from. It cut the aluminum and also trashed my blade. Since the blade was now worthless for normal use, I figured I would see if it could cut some 1/8" brass bar stock, and it did, so I tried a few other pieces of brass, copper and aluminum, all with the same blade. It got pretty toothless after a while, but it still cut. To set up for cut, use a very minimal pitch, raise the blade height just a few degrees each pass and if the blade starts getting toothless, just take passes along the section of blade between the gaps.JMP Metal 003.JPG

In my drawer of tool memoribilia I found an old brass bristle suede brush from my blue suede shoe days that seems to work perfectly to quickly remove the chips and strings.

Oh! That place I used to go to and build things...that's right!

With my 4 month old kid it has been a whirlwind of a summer and I have not been out there for a moment this summer.

First thing you should do and go get locking mobile bases on everything in your shop, except possibly your workbench. Roll everything else around that but having a solid non wobbling work surface is critical to me.

Next, try to make use of the wall space that is over 6' (or higher depending how tall you are..) off the floor. Build some cabinets for storage. If you have a welder, weld some brackets to store lumber on. To me, wood storage is the trickiest part of the work shop. Between sheet goods, hard woods, and metal stock, you end up with a wide variety of shapes and sizes.

I made a outside storage nook for my sheet goods and metal stock that is weather protected by the overhanging roof. I love it. I am able to store 16ft long pieces of steel and 8' sheets of ply and it is easily accessible.

I'll try and get some shots soon!

Any progress on pictures of your new shop? I'm starting to get itchy just trying to figure out how to downsize mine.

Thanks,

Mike

I posted a seperate post on this fence set up under the JMP section for jigs and fixtures. You'll see that if it is built square, it will keep the angle of the main fence.

The Walnut I used is 5/8" thick. I cut the joint 1 1/2" deep, the same width as the stock. I'm always amazed at the accuracy and quality of the cuts from the JMP. The hardest thing to believe is that how with a little attention to the set up and using the Kerfmaker makes a joint that is near perfect with no fiddiling around afterwards!
