Talking Something new to try

Gene I ordered one today. When it come I will post how it works and ease of installation. I have one on my thickness planer and the batteries last about two weeks (with or without) use. Hopefully this one is better.

Work safe: Remember the only 'SAFE' power tool in the shop, is the one with the plug pulled out of the socket!

If you have an open mind is there a chance your brain might fall out?

Default An earlier version of a digital readout

Attached are a couple pictures of the digital readout on my router table. This was done a couple of years ago with a digital readout purchased from Wholesale Tool, an industrial tool supplier, and mounted on a Benchdog Prolift. It is what I have mounted in the new router table that I posted pictures of a short while ago. See "Two new router tables". I am amazed at the similarity to the new Wixey readout.

Mounting this digital readout required some milling of flat spots and tapping of holes on the lift (I have a Bridgeport milling machine) and making mounting brackets. The remote readout box has magnets on the back so it is just stuck to the cast iron table top for the picture and can be moved anywhere within the length of the cord that comes out the back of the cabinet.

In addition, I have included a picture of a similar readout that I have on my Delta portable planer.

Hi Birch


It almost cracks me up to think about of what Bob R. (OF THE RWS) would say about all the new stuff out for router tables now days,, I can almost him say ,,"what the hell is on the router table" ,hahahahahaha, you know the guy with a rubber ruler hahahahahaha LOL LOL " don't measure people it's always wrong anyway.. " ,,I can almost see him getting his fine adjusting tool out and knocking that thing off the router table

hahahahahaha LOL LOL now that's gone, lets do some routing...hahahaha ..
He once said "blow on some wood and it will change by .010 "
