The temperatures are dropping and you’ve started getting out the winter clothes, but did you ever think about your poor router feeling the chill? JessEm has your router covered with their Rout-R-Jacket… oh wait, it’s not that kind of jacket? Let’s try this again.

Unless you have a fully enclosed router table, collecting all the dust you produce can be hard. About a year ago we covered the Dust Bucket, a sheet metal box that encloses your router to catch the dust. JessEm’s Rout-R-Jacket is a similar type of enclosure, except it’s made out of fabric.

JessEm’s Zip Slot Mortise Mill transforms your hand drill into a machine for creating loose tenon joints.  Cutting two mortises and using a loose tenon can speed up joinery significantly, because you only need to do one operation multiple times, rather than the three or four operations required with traditional mortise and tenon joints.

post-jessem.jpgJessEm seeks to take the sliding cross cut table to the next level with the introduction of their Mast-R-Slide 7500 featuring a guide mechanism gliding on 30 double-sealed precision bearings staggered “to provide constant contact contact to the guide rails through its travel.”

Measuring 28″ closed and extending for a maximum measured cut of 48″, the Mast-R-Slide requires no suppore legs and is designed to fir right- or left-tilt table saws while being used on the saw’s left side.  However, JessEm indicates that the table saw must have a solid cast iron top 27″ to 28″ deep and the front and rear fence rails will require modification.  (This eliminates most bench-top or portable contractor saws.)

Street pricing starts around $550.
