Ghetto Tips & Tricks

Post by mammuth » Tue Mar 12, 2019 1:57 am

Lets show your ghetto stuff. This should be not taken to serious. Just some dirty tricks and stuff to laugh from our daily struggle in a shapers life ;)

Lol. Not bad. Still try to figure out how it works. The wheel puzzles me :)

P.S. use the great new upload function for pics! Much better then photobucket (which complains about my ad blocker)

I just did a giant post about my first build thus far. Most won't read it I expect. During this I needed a router table and didn't have one so I made one out of MDF, wood screws for a fence, and a standard plunge router. Used it to do the rabbet over the edge and VDS. Worked perfectly.

Eh, if it's ghetto, but it works, then it isn't ghetto, it's ingenious :D thanks for the tips anyways, they'll help me since I don't have always an access to the "ideal" tools.

this could be very useful to someone who want to build edge Sander.

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

Just add a angled plate to the top and you can bevel your sidewalls as well!
