In part 4, we take a look at a deluxe crosscut station, complete with a lumber rack storage area on the backside. In addition this unit features a tilt-out bin, sliding drawers, adjustable shelving, and customizable pigeon compartments. Designed by Craig Bentzley and built by Joe Hurst-Wajszczuk, this article is written by Paul Anthony and is featured in Woodcraft’s October/November Magazine, Issue #43.
After our Woodcraft Magazine blog on the Wheelchair Woodworking Shop, we were contacted by Carl Smith, a disabled woodworker who uploaded his handmade workbench photo to our Woodcraft Facebook page. The bench has a built-in grate area to catch the shavings from his Jet lathe with bed extension. After some commentary back and forth, and a phone call or two, we were fortunate to learn about Carl and his story.
Nice jig. Could use better instructions.
I haven't bought one of the the drill bits to use with this yet, because they are a little pricy and the reviews didn't look great. I bought this and plan on using my plunge router to create shelf pin holes. This product does not come with great instructions. It took me a while to figure out how to use all of the items that came with it based on the packaging.
Frustrating to use would not buy again
I used it to build 25 kitchen cabinets with prefinished (slick) interiors. Positive stops and small triangular pin to setup and align holes work well. BUT the bit easily jams on chips and gets stuck in retracted position every fifth hole. Tried oil, vacumming,etc. but nothing worked. Used it on this project, but am looking for jig that doesn't have the retractable sleeve. Will try the Kreg next time.
HELP!! - Need Instructions
I'm not sure how to use the little plastic pieces that came with this product to help hold the jig in place. Can anyone help? It's obviously easy to figure out how to line up edge-to-edge with a board and use the bit to drill the holes. And the test hole I made was VERY clean and impressive/professional-looking. Just a little instruction included with the package showing how to use the plastic pieces would have made this a breeze to start using immediately.
Looked at several similar products online and wouldn't buy something like this unseen. My father recommended the tool from Woodcraft because he uses it, so I purchased it online and it was money well spent. Easy to use and it makes adding shelves to the cupboards I built fast and simple. Would've like to see some sort of 'quick start' guide with it, but it was simple enough to figure out.
I was making a bookcase for my son and didn't know how I was going to do the shelves. I wanted to make them adjustable but didn't know how. I stumbled acrossed this and it saved the day. It worked like a charm and the holes look professionally done.
Easy to use
Excellent quality and built very sturdy.
shelf pin jig
Item was backordered for approx. 2 weeks shopping very unsatisfactory should have been USPS, it took an extra 3 days because fedex doesnt drop at our post office. and it went through Mo to get to Il from Oh
works well for its intended use
Straightforward, simple and effective
Great product....just make sure the indexing pin is "all the way in" the first hole and holding the template firm, otherwise the jig will float around a bit
