bobj3 Hi Ladd

JIG SAW

I have one mounted upside down and it works great, I call it a poor man's band saw,,or no room for a band saw with the new jig saw blades they have out now it's easy to cut just about anything, sometimes the project are just to big to do on the band saw and I just hate to clamp it to the work bench and then unclamp it and then clamp it again, with the jig saw unside down it's just like using the band saw plus the cut comes out nice and clean and sq. unlike using the jig free hand...I don't recall the last time I used a jig saw and the cut was true and sq., the blade just likes to bend over just a bit but when it's the table and I push the stock into the blade it comes out true...

I have a cabinet with a pull off top that I just flip over and mount the jig saw with 2 screws, I think ( Router Is My Name) also has one he drops in the router table hole...I think I recall that right, you can see it by clicking on his View Gallery..but he is all so a card (joker) , you will also see a hedge trimmer sticking out of the router table , hahahahahahaha just as a joke..


I have a switch and a outlet on the side of the cabinet and I just masking tape the switch down on the jig saw..then turn the VS on the jig saw to set the speed I need to use for the project//

the one I have mounted upside down ▼ garage sale item for 20.oo bucks.

Ladd The Bosch jigsaw I ordered on Wednesday as the power tool to qualify for the $60 rebate on the table arrived today (Friday).

Not the table itself, but surely getting part of the order qualifies for some of the mystery money, no?

DougO I think we should put some money on who will get theirs first.


I just checked Amazon on my order and three boxes should be delivered tomorrow Now this is what I call fast. I had the same email from Amazon saying it should be delivered the 24th but I think something went better than planned.

They cancelled my order.

Ladd To a Forum Moderator:

This discussion thread, titled "Insert Plate size and 11.5" handle spread; how to prevent problems" has evolved far afield of it's original idea.

May I suggest a moderator start a new discussion thread, titled "CMT Orange Industrio Router Table System from Amazon" (or somesuch) and moving (or at least copying) all the Industrio messages from here to there?

That way the messages in the discussion threads will match the titles and will make it easier for current and future readers to find the pertinent information.

Especially since there are going to be a LOT of CMT Router Table messages in the near future ...

Ladd FWIW: I asked Donna specifically and she confirmed that the photos of the DVD covers on the web site ARE of the "old" videos -- they haven't updated the web site yet.

That's why when I saw the orange table, I thought I would be getting the older video. Wrong.

bobj3 Hi Ladd
Donna is nice but drop a dime and call Marc...she just takes the orders,,I found this out when I had a some errors with one or two of the router boxes,(plastic latch) ,and Marc took care of it in a heart beat, he said hold on and he went to the stock shelft and pulled two off and sent them out at no charge..the same day...

The horses mouth thing..

Let me know if you come up with zero and I will get you one

Ahh, well.

bobj3 Hi Ladd

No starter pin BUT Marc made a bit guard that has two threaded pins that hold it to the table top and they can be used for the starter pin...I made my own out of some brass stock or you can pickup a Metric Allen head bolt and cut some of threads off and the head and have one quick and easy.

Just get a longer one and cut off some of the threads and the head off and with just a grind job you have one to used...

When you view the video you will see why Marc didn't put one in the setup..he has a new way of doing that job, it's a real safe way and it's so simple it will blow your mind..like doing arched door panels...they can be be just a bit hairy to do but not when you do it Marc's way...he is the only one that I know of that puts two sizes of bearing with his panel bits..to make it safe and easy to make them..

Your about to learn a new way of using the router table and the fence.
And you will say why didn't I think of that


BlueGoose ask who will get the 1st one,, I don't know but I'm about 1500 miles from Amazon and they said it will ship on the 17th, so it should be here about on the 24th. of Dec.,I'm sure UPS will be working over time...to get all the boxes off the trucks b/4 Xmax...

UPDATE
Shipped via UPS (estimated arrival date: 18-December-2007).
Tracking number:
