Just having a little fun with some festool supporters on JLC and thought you guys might like to see two of my favorite power benches. Neither has been posted before in this format.

Burt,

Great benches. I think I need to look at these closer, I'm thinking about redesigning The Router Power Bench I'm going to build, and I think some of your ideas need to be incorporated.

I really like the first design. I've been looking for a way to incorporate a TS type fence into my PBB and this got the ideas flowing. I was thinking I was going to have to build a new bench. After looking this over I can just slide things around a bit and add the new fence to the front SME. I can also add "outriggers" where/when needed to do long boards and miter saw type cuts.

1) is there a way you could post the pics so we could download them for reference?

2) (for others - I have PM'd Burt a few times about using a Powermatic/Biese clone fence on my PBB) Burt - FYI, you were right, if I cut the fence guide tube and support rail down for use on my bench they weight about 20#. Less than I thought. The fence comes in at 22#. Wonder if there is a way to lighten it up?

Stupid question. Is there a way to log into someones gallery, without the link, on that site? (flash 10 not supported by my main machine, which needs a major rebuild).

Thanks (checked it out via my netbook)

Burt,

I use Google's Picasa. You can use it to import from your camera, organize and edit your pictures, and export them to a Picasa Web Album, from which viewers can capture them to study them on their own machine. It is very versatile, powerful, and user friendly. And it is FREE...

Mike - Would Photo Bucket help?

Bill - JLC is Journal of Light Construction. They have a very active forum. If you say EZ - Duck - The stuff is about to fly. That place should be called Festool heaven.

Dik - How Photo bucket compare to Picasa? I'm very much a novice with all this computer stuff.

Burt,

I really don't know Photo Bucket, other than that it is asite where you can post photo albums. There may be more, but I don't know.

On the other hand, Picasa covers it all. Check it out. It is really easy. Other than fancy editing and doctoring, I use it for all my photos. It will even import video from your camera if it has that capability. I just have a Cannon A620 that I shoot all my pictures and video with. I hook the camera up to the computer and tell Picasa to import. It does the rest.

Burt/Dik - I have both Picasa and photobucket. I never though to use Picasa for forum posts. Maybe Dik can give a quick explanation?

(I noticed my free photobucket has 16GB limit and Picasa has only 1GB. Plus Picasa grossly charges for additional space i.e. $20/yr for 10GB and $500/yr for 400GB!)

Dik,

Thanks for the tip. I downloaded it last night.

Mike,

After looking at the two, picasa seems to be the easier one to use.

When you upload pictures to a web album, you can make it public or unlisted. Public can be searched and seen when some one goes to your albums. Unlisted means that they are not seen unless you give them a link. To the right of the album, you will see a link that gives you a link to add to an e-mail, or HTML code that you insert in a post.

you can also just have the host that the site uses host your pics and not put them on a Picasa Web Album. This is what I do unless I want to put them on my blog.

I have posted a short tutorial on how to post pictures on the forum. It was taken from a post I did recently in answer to a question. Hope it helps.

Burt,

How do you attach your extensions/wings?

Dik,

I took advantage of having the SME's on the side of the PBB. As you know the hex head of a 5/16" bolt fits in the edge of the SME. I used these to support back to backs that actually support the extensions.

There's got to be something illegal about all the fun you are having building powerbenchs. Seriously though, great stuff. If I ever get finished with all the remodeling my wife has lined up for me, I might get a chance to upgrade my bench with some of you ideas. Thanks for sharing.

Just wish I could find a really good deal on a Unifence. Thats an upgrade I would like to make but I will have to wait until the right deal comes along to justify the expense since my stock EZ fence works so good.

Burt,

I think I get the method, but can't tell from the pictures. Is is kind of like this? This is what I have come up with, an SME and B2B held together with a 3/4" ply web screwed between them. 5/16" bolt heads are sild into the top and bottom slots of the side mounted SME.
