5.0 out of 5 stars Makes workshop life more bearable 22 Jan 2009
Some workshop jobs I find truly insufferable but now with this book as a companion they have become more bearable. The micro adjustable support stand contained here is both ingenious and simple to make. And I've used his method of cold bending and it works a treat.

You'll find in this book a host of jigs for all the common workshop machines : the table saw, the router, the drill press, the band saw, the mitre saw and a few for hand tools as well. I've tried quite a few of these and they work very well, if you want to make life a bit easier in the workshop then buy this book and try some of the jigs, I have every confidence that you will be impressed. I was and still am.

This book has some very innovative jigs to help the small shop carpenter. The router guide itself was worth the price of the book. The pictures and illustrations are clear and concise, just the way I like them!
