Ever need to drill through the middle of round stock? Sure, you can use a center finder to find the center at the edge of the stock, but how do you accurately find the center in the middle of the stock? One cool solution would be to use a round bar center finder, like the one from Grizzly pictured above.

To use the tool, you need to chuck the center finder’s 3/8″ shank into a drill press. Then when both of the legs of the Y are resting on the bar stock and the two notches line up, the drill press chuck is directly over the center of the stock.

Start your drooling: Grizzly recently introduced a sliding table saw with a footprint small enough to fit into smaller shops. Why would you even want one of these saws? For one, forget about complicated miter sleds, the whole 12-1/4″ x 39-3/4″ extruded aluminum table on the left side of the blade can slide.

Want perfect miters in applications where precision really matters, like making picture frames? This miter trimmer uses high-carbon steel blades that are razor sharp to shave fractions of an inch from miters, leaving a cut that some might call glass-smooth.

Since you can’t actually use the trimmer to make miters, you first need to make a rough miter cut with a miter box. Then with the miter trimmer you can shave the piece for the perfect fit. The trimmer is made from cast iron, so it weighs 35 lbs. It has angle presets at 90° and 45°.

We’re not sure who actually makes this trimmer. Rockler, Dieter Schmid, Grizzly, Highland Woodworking, and other companies sell what looks to be the identical tool for anywhere from $150 to $200.

It’s not easy sharpening a curved edge with a flat stone, so why bother?  Get a curved stone like one of these slipstones from Grizzly.  These tapered Japanese stones can sharpen gouges from 1/2″ to 2″ wide.  Made from aluminum oxide and available in 240, 1,000, and 4,000 grits, these water stones both sharpen and polish.

One curved slipstone will run you about $16.
