Default A big thank you to Bob Noles

The courier has just delivered my prize, generously donated by you're good-self and I wish to thank you Bob. I'm so excited that I haven't opened the parcel yet, I had to let you know of it's safe arrival. All my current projects are now on hold whilst I fit and learn how to use this Oak Park jig.Thanks again, Harry

Harry,

You are most welcome my friend. Use it in good health and I can't wait to see what innovative ways you put it to use.

Thanks so much for your winning entry in the competition.

It's now 8.20pm Friday Aug.3rd. and I finished mounting the Oak Park spacer fence just in time for my evening meal. I have also now finished sorting the photographs. It will be tomorrow or Monday before I'll be able to make the first cut. One question, The up-cut spiral cutter is 0.245", the spacer is 0.245", but the jig is .23". Is there some significance to this 15thou". difference? I couldn't find my piece of 1/4" square brass so I used a piece of 1" x 1/4" steel, the correct way round of course!
Finding longer bolts to fit the supplied wing nuts was not a problem, I assume they were UNC 1/4" x 20tpi which just happens to be the same as our still used non metric 1/4" Whitworth x 20tpi.
I just had to pop into my shed to get the above figures and it took a lot of self control to resist turning the router on.
To be continued......................................... ............

It's now 8.50pm

Hi Harry

"but the jig is .23". Is there some significance to this 15thou""

The stock needs to side free on the jig,,,it works great but you must keep the stock tight to the guide,,,it takes a bit of a learning curve to get it done right ever time...that's why I use the saw handle type push block..

Harry,

Looks like you're well on the way... BUT, I didn't see you take any test cuts before drilling those holes!

When I installed mine, I had to move the clamped-down jig a tad to get good cuts (& even then ended up a tad too tight). Made several test cuts to be sure it was set in the correct position before drilling the holes.

I too had to use longer screws.

Good luck... hope your holes work for you... You will L O V E it once you get used to it's simple method of use!

The best advice I can give, in using it, is always have a good "Pusher" that supports the workpiece very well and to be sure you always have the WP solidly in position before cutting it! I blow the chips away after each cut.

I use a chunk of a 4x4x7 as a 'pusher'... it provides a good handle as well as support in all directions.

We expect to see some new boxes from you now... with box joints!!

E N J O Y !!

Have Fun,
Joe

Thanks for that info. Bj, it's probably saved a small forest in test cuts. Am I right in thinking that you find side by side better than one in front of the other like B&R do it?
It's likely to be a few days now as I'm going to have to attempt to make a "deluxe" push block. I can't risk showing myself up by using my usual piece of 4" x 2"!
I hope you had a good nights sleep and are ready to face another busy day at the help desk.

Bj,

The way I look at life is that everything is a big circle. What goes around comes around and I was just paying back a little of what I have received from the folks on this forum. That and good friends are the kind of stuff you cannot put a price tag on.

It is I that was saying thanks to all and I appreciate your thanks as well Bj.

a 4x4 provides a better handle than a 2x4... at least for me, it does...

Have Fun,
