Can it do 1 inch thick wood or limited to 3/4" ?
Sure you can borrow it. Come and get it anytime Hey Bob, forgot to mention this. You want to be sure those little grub screws are tight on the collars that hold up the bearing. If that works loose the collar drops and that means the bearing drops and then you have a problem cause if the bearing ends up below the template, your going to chew it up and ruin it. Bobj mentioned this to me before and today when I was removing the bit from the router and the collar dropped down cause the grub screw was loose Bobj uses a little O ring on the shank under the collar to hold it up if the grub screw fails. Good insurance. Just wanted to mention that.Bob N said:Alright Corey..... back to the kitchen for you! You posted this just to make me green with envy because you know Gifkin won't arrive for another 3 weeks yet. Nothing wrong with being green on St. Paddy's day, but this is not what I in mind.
I can't wait for it to get here, it appears to be the cat's meow. Those are some great looking dovetails in those pictures. Very tight and slightly proud.... picture perfect!
Don't guess I could borrow yours until mine arrives?

Thanks Bob, I appreciate it!bobj3 said:Hi Corey

Hi Joe,it is very easy, no fussing and mussing really. It is however fairly expensive. It is made in Austrailia but can be bought from their US agent: The Japan Woodworker. Bob Noles just ordered from them and it is on back order. I bought mine direct from Roger and the shipping killed me! Here is the link to the Japan Woodworker Gifkin's page:Joe Lyddon said:Corey,
That sure looks simple and easy!
Do you have link where you can see them, etc.?
How much are they?
