Default Pusher for box joint jig

I've read comments that refer to a super jig that Bj put together. I've searched for the thread, but can't find it. Can someone direct me, or else post other threads that deal with pushers for the box jigs.

Didn't I see a simple 3/4 inch piece of stock cut square and fitted with a peg like the type you'd hang a coat on?? Not sure how these are mounted as a screw through the bottom would be hard on bits if you were to ever push it that far.

Thanks for all you folks do. I'm amazed that the camaraderie that all of you share. Being a rank beginner, I have a lot to learn.

Hi Dennis

The peg type works well, all you need to do is drill a hole in the block and push in the peg...but the best type is the sliding dovetail type, you can slide in or out in a snap, then when you need a new one ,,,they are easy to make..
A 2" x 6" x 6" block works well for the peg type..

If you do cabinets (panels.door frames) like I do, I just came across a new type that works well for that job..without using a jig of any kind...(sled)

Hi Dennis

Here's a snapshot or two of the new push block I'm now using for R & S bits.


Most R & S bits are made in matched sets,that's to say the cutters are the same height form the bottom of the router bit shank,,,

The real key to making R & S doors,panel doors,T & G joints,any pair of router bits made to be used as a pair, is to let the bit do all the work,,and it will if you use them right...
The 1st. bit you want to use is the coping bit and then use the bead bit,,all done without moving the router up or down,,,, all done by just switching the bits...and to using the push block below...and all the jointing will come out just right without any sanding needed...to get them to fit just right...

I just use a scrap piece of 2x4 or a 2x6 for pushing the wood through. You could put a upright peice with some glue and use it to stablize the wood with a clamp.

Ken...That must be the sled that others on the forum were talking about. Quite nice, to say the least.

Bob...Thanks for the hints. I'm not quite ready for R & S work yet. Say, you must be the Jig King on this forum.

Glenmore...Thank you for those hints. Great suggestions by all.

Sorry I posted this in the wrong section. I'll put further inquiries in the jig section.

You'er Welcome Dennis

"you must be the Jig King on this forum" = No

Many types of woodworkers, Primitive Pete = one who makes things out of wood and some nails and screws, and calls it good.

Short Cut John = one who likes routers, but who thinks his way is best and will take many short cuts to do the same job...almost..

Mechanical Woodworker,, that's me ,one that likes to work on the tools but does not like to drive most of the time..
I like to turn the nuts and bolts but I do from time to time make wooden things. and have made my share I think...

I'm always looking for a better way of doing the job and jigs/templates for me is the key to do it over and over the same way...
I do make alot of jigs and I haved posted many of them, but not all ,just to help others get the job done easyer ...

I think it's a Tim Taylor thing ( Tim "The Tool Man" )

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tool_Time
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Allen

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Taylor_(fictional_character)

"A hot rod enthusiast, Tim is knowledgeable on all things related to cars, and is fond of listing the different parts inside a particular car that catches his attention.
Tim is also obsessed with building things.
This is usually followed by his trademark grunting.
He is also somewhat obsessed with modifying machines and household appliances for "more power" (a favorite catchphrase of his), because he likes doing things the "man's way".
Most of the time, the rewired machines will backfire and cause some kind of accident.
Nevertheless, he tries to pass these qualities to his sons.
It has been shown on some occasions, most notably at the end of the episode 'Ye Olde Shoppe Teacher', that if Tim pays attention and follows instructions without trying to give things more power, he can be an effective craftsman."

================

It works but make it go faster,more power
