There's as many ideas and new gadgets to separate a woodworker from his money asthere are woodworkers... plus some!

The problem with most is that they masquerade as helpful tools..

Hence the value of this forum, where users aren't shy about sharing their experiences with the really helpful ones, the one-trick ponies* and masqueraders!!

* This is not to say that a one-trick pony may not be essential if you really need that trick!

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

I went to the one in Las Colinas, TX a few weeks ago, and one of the tools that caught my eye was the Exakt Cut saw. They said they've sold over a million in the UK and were very easy to use. I thought it was interesting that I haven't seen one of those before, then when I walk into Lowes, I see Rockwell has their version of it (of course, Rockwell has a copy of everything). I'm glad I didn't buy the Exakt Cut saw because the Rockwell version is cheaper.

Exact Cut DC 280

The Rocwell Bladerunner looks interesting also: Bladerunner video

That Bladerunner is like a jigsaw that someone put upside down in a router table (i've seen it done a few times).

A couple years ago routerforums Detroit members attended The Woodworking Show as a group. There were about 15 of us and we had a great time, not so much because of the show which was fine. It was meeting others who had not joined us for Sawdust Saturdays. This is why I encourage forum members to include a location in their signature.

Hi

That's about it , me and router-is-still-my-name (a member on the forum) mounted a jig saw on a board so it could be just dropped into the router table hole, works great and you can buy just about any type of blade for it...but it will make a big mess when cutting tile but you have the vac.system on the table to suck the dust and chips.

The Triton Workcentre had a plate for this attachment over ten years ago.

I agree, not a replacement for a scroll saw, but able to cut reasonably close curves.
