Hi Harry

It easy to buy off eBay,, some of the items you can hit the Buy NOW button if it listed and if not it's a bid item only, most run for 7 days the norm..
All most all the router bit item are listed as buy now..it's bit higher but in price but not by much...I don't like to play the bid game most of the time but it can be fun also ( mind games) you can buy many books for eBay but most of them you don't need..

Just logon to http://eBay.com and your off and running (buying)

BUT they can help...if you are selling items.

--------------

You 1st. need to get set up with eBay, that's easy (user name and password thing) then you find the item you want and buy it or bid on it..
When you are looking at the adds besure to read ALL the details about the item they have listed..

Bj,

I know this is probably a dumb question, but I am good at those at times. How do you go about controling the depth of cut with a slot cutter like you have linked to? I know it will only go as deep as the bearing allow, but let's say you want it somewhat less in depth. Is there a kit with various size bearings available?

Hi Bob

Almost all slot cutters come with a bearing on the shaft just under the cutter, most will cut up to 1/2" deep the norm and you can cut 3/4" by removing the bearing and just use the fence as a control but if you just want to put in a slot that's only a 1/4" deep the fence is the key, just move it back so you only have 1/4" pass the fence front.
I use a fence that has a slot in it so the cutter is the only thing that's sticking out but it needs a slot for the shaft and the bearing.

But it's safe way to put in slots and to take the top off a box , all that's need when you remove the top from a box is a insert a spline in to fill the slot on both side that's taped in place then just cut the other two sides and your done.

quick and easy way...and it's clean and true, some used a band saw or table saw a table ,a table saw will give you a heart attack and most band saw can't go over 6".

Thanks Bj,

I knew you would have the answer and I think what was blocking me from seeing the picture to start with was the Oak-Park fence I use in it's original state. Perception of mind can work for and against you at different times

Hi Bob

A nice clean 2 x 4 (on it's side) works great for this type of job, just a little bit of band saw/jig saw work and it's done.

Excellent info Bob. You can do the same thing on the table saw and fill the slot and tape it just like a slotter. Both will work. I need to get a good slotter set!

LOL Bob... got a big old 2 x 4 push block that sits on top of the box and hooks on the back. Stand out of the zone and let her go If it would pinch I am holding the box down so hard that it will bind on the motor and I can flip the switch real quick if I get into trouble. No way would I be doing bare handing it. I am not crazy... almost . Another way is a method Doug Stowe uses is adjust the height to just a tick under the thickness of the stock so that you have a thin web that can be removed with a sharp utility knife. Sand it smooth on a piece of sand paper on a flat surface or glass. Still you don't have to have much blade sticking up and my hands are along way from the blade. Pretty comfortable doing that. Now resawing..... no way, I did it once and it scared me so bad I almost bailed mid cut on it. That's another reason I buy dimensioned stock!

Hi Corey

That's why I use the slot cutters, (flip the switch real quick ) before or after it takes my finger NO WAY bud ,fingers,,,it took me a long time to grow them and they do come in handy ....like saying hi to other drivers on the road with the right finger

BJ... the worst that will happen with my way of doing it is it kicks it back at me and hits me between the eyes . Actually the thought of one of those slot cutters raises the hair on my neck doing that job. Any of those big bits whirring on that router table makes me think twice Either one though will remove a digit if you are not watching and controlling the situation but I have more between me and the blade I think on the saw.
