An email we received from Woodcraft bids you to hurry and take advantage of the current Festool pricing before it goes up on March 1st. Apparently their already-hardy pricing will be bumped a tic to the tune of 3-5% on most of their popular tool line.

At the moment of this article’s writing, we’re not quite sure why that bump is taking place or if it’s just Woodcraft catching up with market realities. In any event, a major supplier is raising pricepoints — although for something like the RO90 Sander, going from $375 to $385 isn’t much of a big deal. If you were inclined to spend close to $400 on a sander in the first place, $10 isn’t going to dissuade you.

Not all wood is cut into nice rectangular shapes. This is especially true when you’re looking for novel blanks like pieces of burl to turn into beautiful centerpieces. But before turning the blank you need to figure out the largest or best material it will bare.

Made from 1/8″ acrylic, the Bullzeye Woodturner’s Center Finder has concentric circles marked every quarter inch and will mark circles up to 10″ in diameter. Although it’s called a center finder, it’s really more of a usable material finder.

You’d think manufacturers have done just about everything possible to make drill bits perform better, but it seems they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. Colt, a German drill bit manufacturer, recently introduced some new bits with what almost looks like a four-flute design.

Made of alloy steel, the Twinland brad point bits use a 25º flute with a recessed land — the land is the raised area of the spiral bit. By creating a void in the land, the design removes chips faster and helps prevent one cause of burning, where chips get between the land and the hole wall. The second “land” surface also is supposed to improve guidance and accuracy.

Getting all the teeth lined up on a dado stack is hard enough without worrying about losing shims — that’s why Forrest dado stacks ship with magnetic shims. But you don’t need to buy the Forrest to get these shims; you can buy them separately and they’ll stay stuck to just about any steel blade or chipper.

Yesterday we featured a product that can turn your a chisel into a plane; today we’ll show you a plane that you might use in some of the same operations where you’d use a chisel, like removing glue or trimming plugs. It also works well at trimming box and dovetail joints flush and cleaning up rabbets. You don’t want to use this plane like you would a normal plane though, because there’s no support in front of the blade.

Scrapers work well for removing glue, paint, and other finishes, but not every surface is flat. For cleaning up curved surfaces, a scraper that can accept blades with different curved profiles would come in handy.

Most router tables allow you to capture dust and chips from the top of the table through a collection port on the fence, but this is only effective for some operations. Other operations require dust collection from the bottom of the table. There are a few different methods to do this with varying levels of effectiveness; usually they involve encasing the router in some sort of vacuum box.

Keen Products’ dust collection system collects dust right from the point of entry on the bottom of the table, leaving your router accessible and open so it won’t overheat. It also removes most of the dust before it has a chance to fall into the router motor, hopefully prolonging its life.
