Wixey Digital Angle Gauge – a Favorite Tool

Wixey Digital Angle Gauge

 

We often read woodworking tool reviews at the time when the tool is just released. However, this review is of a tool I have steadily used over the last 2 years and it is quite simply a joy to use. The Wixey digital angle gauge has the ability to take the woodworker’s skills to the next level because it is easy to use along with being very accurate. No longer does the woodworker have to rely on the less than accurate gauges of a table saw or a miter saw to approximate the angles to be set. One can set the correct angle effortlessly within seconds by using this wonderful setup tool.

During the time I have employed the Wixey Digital angle gauge in my workshop I have found all sorts of uses for it. It can be seen in many of the previous postings on this woodworking blog.
Here are a few examples:

The digital angle gauge accurately measures the bevel cut on the 10 inch compound miter saw blade.

Wixey Digital angle gauge and Table Saw blade

The table saw blade is set perpendicular to the table.

The Wixey Digital angle gauge can be used to set the angle on the jointer fence and also to set the angle on a drill press table. Once you start using this marvelous measuring device you will find more ways for it to be utilized in your shop.

The base of the Wixey Digital angle gauge has two super strong magnets that can be used to attach itself to saw blades or a jointer fence. Begin by setting the angle gauge on a reference surface and pressing the zero button. Once the gauge has a zero reading it can now be placed on the blade or the fence that you are adjusting. Now, simply adjust to the desired angle and lock the blade or fence in place. It’s that easy.

The Wixey digital gauge (model WR 300) is accurate within 0.1 degrees. It comes with a battery.

The Wixey digital angle gauge is simply a must have tool for the setup of power tools in the woodworking shop. The Wixey digital angle gauge allows the woodworker to save time, save material, and to work with confidence.

Band Saw Sled – 60 Degrees

Band Saw Sled – 60 degrees

60 Degree Band Saw Sled for wood inlay bandings and parquetryThe 60 degree band saw is an extremely useful crosscut sled for creating wood inlay banding and parquetry. It is simple to construct, very economical, and highly accurate. Plus, this bandsaw accessory easily can be made in 15- 30 minutes.  How accurate is the 60 degree band saw sled? That depends on one’s skill level. Trust me tho, building this crosscut sled is not rocket science. However, once the sled is completed you will be able to create some wonderful  woodworking projects that will amaze you. Let’s get started.

 

Why create a 60 Degree Band Saw Sled?

 

60 Degree Band Saw Sled - Parquetry Star PatternThe 60 degree band saw sled was developed by The Apprentice and The Journeyman to create parquetry and wood inlay bandings in a safe and highly accurate manner. This crosscut sled along with a clamped stop-block ensures that the woodworker can make duplicatable and repeatable cuts. This is essential when creating geometric patterns for parquetry and wood inlay bandings.

A woodworker’s skill level, woodworking needs, and imagination all come into play when working with the 60 degree band saw sled. Build this crosscut sled, make a few angled cuts on some scrap material, and you will quickly see for yourself. You will learn how to cut diamonds. Before long, you will be creating beautiful diamond wood inlay banding and stunning hardwood veneers of parquetry. All of this can be performed on the wood band saw.

60 Degree Band Saw Sled - Parquetry Star pattern 2Once you create diamonds on the 60 degree band saw sled, you will likely find yourself rearranging the diamonds to create a decorative star pattern. Then you may start to experiment with the colors of your wood design by adding contrasting wood tones. For example, try cutting wood segments of maple, walnut, and cherry with this band saw accessory. Play around with the colors of these wood segments and find a design that works best for you. Once you get started, it just may surprise you. You will be coming up with ideas for wood projects before you know it.

Can a 60 degree sled be used on a table saw? The answer is “Yes, of course.” As a matter of fact, there is a tablesaw crosscut sled in my woodworking shop as well. However, the 60 degree band saw sled will allow you to safely work with small wood pieces. Working with small wooden pieces on the table saw with or without crosscut sleds can be a challenge due to its rapidly spinning saw blade.  There is little chance of small wooden pieces flying about the woodworking shop when using the 60 degree band saw sled. However, it is a very good idea to keep the bearing guide assembly to a height just above the material being cut. Why? Working safely is a good habit. This will limit the band saw blade exposure to the woodworker’s hands. Working safely is a good habit.

 

How to Build the 60 Degree Band Saw Sled  

 

60 Degree Band Saw Sled - Diamond Wood Inlay Banding PatternAs you can see in the photos and video, the sled is made from scrap material. Find some extra material that you have in your workshop. You can use MDF, plywood, or particle board for the crosscut sled. However, make sure that your choice is flat. We want the 60 degree band saw sled to be perfectly parallel to the band saw table during the cutting operations. In essence, the flatness of our crosscut sleds enhance our ability to make accurate cuts.

The runner for the 60 degree band saw sled fits into the miter gauge slot. Choose a straight grained hardwood such as maple, ash, or oak. Dimension the runner for a good fit. We want the sled to slide across the table in a controlled manner.

Once the 60 degree band saw sled is built, it is important to check the settings on the band saw. Adjust the table to the band saw blade and make sure it is at a 90 degree angle. An 8″ Wixey digital angle gauge is an excellent choice for measuring the angle.

60 Degree Band Saw Sled - Creating ParquetryThe next step is to set the angle for the crosscut fence. First, align the runner of the 60 degree band saw sled into the miter gauge. Turn on the band saw and make a  cut about halfway through the sled. Now, take 30-60-90 drafting triangle or the Wixey digital angle gauge and set one edge along the saw kerf of the sled. Measure an angle of 60 degrees. This determines the angle of the fence. Be sure to select a straight length of hardwood for the fence.

If you have a spray sealer handy, it’s a good idea to seal the 60 degree band saw sled. This will help to seal out moisture and thus stabilize the sled’s dimensions. Also, the sled’s bottom can be waxed with paraffin to enhance the sliding action.

Enjoy this great crosscut sled to customize your furniture projects, picture frames, jewelry boxes, cutting boards, etc.

Let me know how it works out for you. Your thoughts are welcomed.

How to use a dado blade set to create a rabbet and plough on the picture frame moulding. 4.) How to cut our picture frame moulding to a rough length using the crosscut sled on the table saw. 5.) How to make a picture frame with perfect miter joints. We use a miter sled on the tablesaw for this operation. 6.) How to secure our picture frame miter joints accurately and efficiently by using Ulmia spring clamps.

[kkytv id=”zLcDISz8LRI”]

Note: This article and woodworking video is part of a series. The other videos will focus on how to make splines miter joints,  how to create shop-made wood inlay bandings, and how to cut and fit decorative wood inlay banding to the picture frames.

Preparation to Make a Picture Frame

Material Preparation: We determine how many picture frames that are to be created. This in turn dictates how much material we need for our job. In order to make a picture frame we need to work with dimensioned material. 1.) We start with rough mahogany boards that need to be dimensioned. 2.) Surface one side of the mahogany on the jointer. 3.) Run our material through the planer to achieve a 3/4″ uniform thickness.  4.) Joint an edge on each board so that it is straight and square along its length.

How to Make a Picture Frame

The woodworking video begins

Ripping on the Tablesaw

1.) (0:00) Set the width of the desired cut by adjusting the tablesaw fence to the saw blade. 2.) Adjust the saw blade height so that the saw teeth are about 1/4″ or so above the material being ripped. For safety’s sake there is really no need to have the blade any higher. The less the sawblade exposure the better.

Notice:

1.) There is a sharp 10″ table saw blade installed for the cuts to be performed.

2.) The table saw blade is accurately set to 90 degrees by using a Wixey Digital Angle Gauge. Wixey Digital Angle Gauge - How to Make a Picture Frame - Top Woodworking Tips

3.) A zero clearance insert with a splitter is installed on the tablesaw to avoid the possibility of kickback. (0:18) In the video watch how the splitter keeps the saw kerf open. We want an open saw kerf . If the saw kerf closes this could lead to the material binding on the blade causing a potential dangerous situation called kickback.

4.) Eye protection and hearing protection is used by the woodworker while working with the machinery. The dust collector is also on during the machinery stages.

5.) (0:28) An outfeed table for the tablesaw is utilized. The outfeed table allows for ease of working as well as an element of safety.  The woodworker can confidently push the material through the sawblade without the need to reach across either the tablesaw and the spinning saw blade.

6.) (0:44) The Pushstick: Take a look at the type of pushstick used in the video. It has the shape of a shoe. The reason that this push stick is used is to obviously keep the hands of the woodworker away from the blade. This pushstick also guides the material forward while keeping the material flat on the tablesaw. Pay close attention the the feedrate that the woodworker applies. He is simply allowing the table saw blade to cut through the material at a controlled pace.

7.) A clear space on the table surface to the woodworker’s right allows him the to conveniently lay the ripped material. This allows for ease of operation and organization.

The Router Table Setup

A router table insert is used along with a router. 1.) Align the router table fence to the bearing of the router bit with the aid of a straightedge. (In this case a framing square was used.) 2.) Clamp the router fence securely in place. 3.) Adjust the router bit is to a desired height. This preparation is performed using a scrap piece of the picture frame moulding.

Notice:

1.) (1:02) A plastic featherboard is securely in place on the router table a few inches before the router bit. This feather board has two knobs which lock it into position in the metal track. The featherboard is adjusted so that the material is able to ride along the router fence without any lateral movement. This control makes for a straight and uniform moulding cut.

2.) (1:41) A shopmade featherboard is clamped to the router table fence a few inches before the router bit. The maple featherboard keeps the material flat against the router table surface to allow for a straight and uniform moulding profile.

In a nutshell, these featherboards allow for the woodworker’s safety while controlling the shape of the moulding profile. There is something else that is quite important though. By having the featherboards in place, the woodworker is able to work confidently and with piece of mind. He knows he is reducing the margine for error by working safely.

3.) Watch the feedrate of the material as the woodworker takes a pass. Notice the depth of cut compared to the hardness of the material. How much material should be removed in one pass? Too heavy of a cut can create a safety issue or cause the router bit to burn the material. Too light of a cut is unproductive. Remember to make your first pass with a practice cut on a piece of scrap picture frame moulding. Once you are satisfied with this setup, it is just a matter of running the moulding profile on the rest of the material.

4.) (1:47) Notice the pushstick used in the router table operation. It is made from plywood and is about 12″ long. The pushstick is held at an angle to control the material while being guided through the operation. The all important pushstick  allows the woodworker’s hands and fingers to be clear of the spinning router bit.

The Dado Blade Setup

1.) (2:02) Freud Super Dado 8-inch Stack Dado  is used in the dado operation.

2.) (2:10) A shopmade tablesaw insert is used for a zero clearance cut.

3.) (2:10) A shopmade sacrificial Dado Fence is clamped to the Biesemeyer Table Saw Fence.

4.) (2:10) A Dial Caliper accurately measures the depth and width of the rabbet cut.

5.) (2:19) Both featherboards are in place to control for safety and the accuracy of the rabbet.

6.) (3:00) The dado blades and fence are adjusted to create a plough (or groove) on the face of the picture frame moulding. This will be the location for the decorative wood inlay banding. (3:32)

Tablesaw Crosscut Sled

1.) (3:34) The mahogany picture frame moulding is being crosscut to a predetermined rough length. The top and bottom members of the picture frame are shorter than the side members. So, we need 2 separate lengths of picture frame moulding.

2.) (3:58) Notice how the adjustable stopblock on the rail of the crosscut sled is being used. Once the initial moulding member is measured for length, a pencil tic mark is made on the moulding. Place the moulding along the sled’s rail. Now, set the pencil tic mark on the sled’s saw kerf edge closest to the stopblock. (4:05) The next step is to simply slide the adjustable stop block to the square end of the moulding from where the measurement was initiated. Now, all rough cuts will be guaranteed a uniform length. (4:18)

The Tablesaw Miter Sled

1.) a.) (4:27) Prepare for the initial right miter cut of the shorter members of moulding. b.) (4:33) Set the left end of the picture frame moulding  just over the miter saw’s keft. c.) Secure a stopblock by clamping it to the miter sled fence.  d.) Cut all the initial right miter cuts for the shorter lengths of picture frame moulding. Mitre Sled for Table Saw _ How to Make a Picture Frame - Top Woodworking Tips

2.) (5:32) Using the same procedure as above, make all initial right miter cuts for the longer members of moulding.

Determine the Length of each Moulding Member

Long Picture Frame Member: (6:28)

1.) a.) Working from a plan or previously made picture frame, take the measurements from the inside edge of the frame. In the video you’ll notice the woodworker line up a long member of the moulding to match a miter of an existing picture frame. b.) (6:31) Place a pencil tic mark at the short point of the opposite (left) miter. This determines the length of the longer member.

2.) a.) (6:40) Line up the pencil  tic mark with the miter sled’s left edge of the saw kerf. Make sure that the inside edge of the moulding is flush against the miter sled fence. b.) (6:55)  Clamp a stopblock along the miter sled’s fence where the long point of the opposite miter is located.

3.) (7:05) Proceed to trim the left miter.

Short Picture Frame Member: (7:31)

1.) a.) Determine the length of the short picture frame member by laying the miter on the existing picture frame or the plan. b.) (7:39) Along the inside edge of the moulding place a pencil tic mark at the short point of the miter that is to be cut.

2.) a.) (7:51) Place the pencil tic mark on the left edge of the miter sled saw kerf’s edge while making sure the inside edge of the short member is flush against the miter sled fence. b.) (7:58) Secure the stop block to the miter sled fence.

3.) (8:09) Turn the tablesaw on and cut the left miters for all the short members.

Dry Fit the Picture Frame Members:(8:23)

1.) Align each miter joint precisely.Ulmia Spring Pinch Clamp and Miter Joint - How To Make a Picture Frame - Top Woodworking Tips

2.) Secure each miter joint using an Ulmia spring pinch clamp. (The Ulmia miter clamp pliers and the Ulmia miter clamp rings are also featured in the woodworking video.)

Gluing and Clamping the Miter Joints:(8:45)

1.) Brush on white glue to each joint side with an acid brush. Make sure there is enough glue, but not too much. Reach a happy medium.

2.) a.) (8:59) Work on a flat surface while aligning each miter joint. b.) Open the clamp ring and release the pressure to secure the joint. c.) Continue this routine until all 4 joints are aligned properly. (9:35)  Good job!  d.) Proceed to the next picture frame to be assembled. e.) Develop a rhythm to your work and enjoy the process. f.) Place stickers under each picture frame and away from the wet glue during the drying process.
