A month today to Stu’s Shed’s 2nd Birthday

And although I was hoping to hit the big 1/2 million by then (based on last year’s growth rate), we are still going to get over the line with (I feel is a very respectable) over 400,000 visitors by then.  (Will hit around 410,000)

MagJig Jigs

With the Brisbane show rapidly approaching (it starts on Friday, and I fly Saturday morning (around 6am!)) I’ve been having a final look at some of the jigs that I will be taking up to demonstrate the versatility of the MagJig

It is quite surprising just how many ways you can think of to legitimately incorporate these devices into your homemade (or purchased for that matter) jigs!

One I am keen on making in particular from the MagSwitch website looks quite functional, and will prove very useful when I want to do some coving on the tablesaw.  I’ve been interested in a coving blade as well, but they are not cheap and you’d have to have quite a bit of work on to justify the purchase.  In the meantime, a normal blade can be used (although I will be looking for blade stabilising disks while in Brisbane, not only for coving, but for normal blade operation).

I’m also looking at a way to improve the functionality of the 4″ floor sweeper, by combining it with my MagBroom to create a new hybrid – The MagBroom, now with more suck! (I’ll post a photo of the result, if it works!)

And all in time for Brisbane.  It would be a lot easier just to photoshop the result!
