AMP-v2 | ANGLEMASTER PRO v2
The AMP-v2 Anglemaster is CNC milled from solid aluminum, both legs are magnetic. All ball bearing hinges, anodized and quick references laser etched on the back. Each leg has integral shoe locks which require no tools to adjust. The reason many struggle with accurate miters is the lack of precision. For example, setting a standard small protractor to 66.141 degrees is a bad guess at best. In order to do your best work (zero filler) you have to be able to quantify your efforts. The AngleMaster Pro will provide you with unprecedented accuracy and this makes your job so much easier. Knowing is so much more fun that guessing—the AngleMaster Pro v2 is the most confidence inspiring tool we have ever produced. Complex joinery is now as easy as a 90 degree butt joint! Digital Calipers We have tested a wide range of digital calipers that are on the market today. Some of the cheaper calipers that we tested have terrible battery life issues. Others don't measure down to .01mm which is necessary for the AMPv2 to work well.
BL-2 | BUBBLE LEVEL
Originally designed to attach to the AMPv2, these versatile little levels have a myriad of other applications in your shop;
· Attach to a try square blade and use your square as a plumb bob
· Attach to a straight edge or angle iron to create a longer level
· Can be hung on a string to create a line level
· Really handy for checking level in confined spaces
· Works on pipe and other cylindrical objects
Available in several colors, these little levels will please the most discerning of craftspeople.
The upgrade features 2 stout bearing blocks that hold 4 bearings for each table. The bearings slide on induction hardened chromed plated steel rods. The bearings do not need adjustment (factory assembled) and they do not require lubrication. The main advantage over the original system is they are easier to use (much less friction) at the expense of a bit more noise.
The kit included new rails, adapter plates, tables. You can reuse your current fences. They fasten perfectly to all existing JMP’s. Installation involves removing the screws that hold the original dovetail rails in place, lift out the old rail system and replace with the new—a very easy assembly. Most conversions take about an hour to perform.
We recommend this upgrade kit for those who wanted a lubrication free linear table system that is much more efficient than the original sliding dovetail design.
JSF-1 | FOLDING DOZUKI SAW
With a maximum cutting depth of 2.1", a blade length of approximately nine inches and an overall length of 24", our 28 teeth per inch folding dozuki is an ideal joint cutting back saw. The blade is an astonishing 0.33mm thick which is only 12 thousandths of an inch and creates a kerf of approximately .020” wide. Use it for your best work and when done, fold it in half—the handle becomes a blade guard, and if needed, will fit in your back pocket as a ready assistant.
JSF-2 | FOLDING KATABA SAW
The 20 TPI Kataba is a deep cheek cutting saw–and is perfectly suited for tenons and larger dovetails as well as end trimming and general purpose sawing needs. Great for furniture making.
Overall length is 24"
Blade Thickness: 0.46mm
Blade Length: 9"
JSF-3 | FOLDING RYOBA SAW
The JSF-3 Folding Ryoba Saw is the saw of choice when you need to cut a large board in half across its width. This particular saw has two blades in one! With 16TPI on one side, its a fast cutting saw! On the other side of the blade, the 8 TPI is used for ripping. (There is an included guard for the exposed teeth of this saw when folded.)
Cutting Length of 9"
PRECISION FENCE SYSTEM
The JM-SW Precision Fence System consists of one 12" (300mm) fence, featuring the ability to move stops without backlash in 0.001" (.05mm) increments over the 12" (300 mm) range of the fence. The stops are adjustable, both in perpendicularity to the tables and in parallelism to the blade. The quick release, zero backlash flip stops are fast, accurate and repeatable.
The stop assemblies engage a backlash free lead screw with micrometer readouts on each end of the fences. The stops can be locked to the fence when needed but quickly pivot out of the way for rapid traverses, or, the stop finger can be flipped upward without unlocking the stop from the fence for a quick crosscut prior to cuts to a precise length.
PRECISION TABLE SAW SLED KIT
The fence system consists of two independent fences, both featuring the ability to move stops without backlash in 0.001” (.05mm) increments over the 18” (450 mm) range of the fence. The stops are adjustable in both perpendicularity to the tables and in parallelism to the blade. The stop assemblies engage a backlash free lead screw with micrometer readouts on each end of the fences. The stops can be locked to the fence when needed but quickly pivot out of the way for rapid traverses, or, the stop finger can be flipped upward without unlocking the stop from the fence for a quick crosscut prior to cuts to a precise length. We have taken the micro-adjustable fence concept designed for the Jointmaker Pro and are now offering it as a Precision Table Saw Sled Kit.
SE | CROWNING PLANE
Milled from solid stainless steel, this plane is a true celebration of form and a grand showcase of the tool makers art. We believe these Limited Edition planes will become the most valuable set of tools we have, or are likely to produce.
As with the ASP-25 Anniversary Shoulder Plane and HP-7LE Limited Edition Shoulder Plane, we only made 50 of the remarkable SE Crowning planes. Each of these planes are hand signed and serial numbered. Serial numbers were given out on a first-come first-served basis. This tool was produced/introduced in 2012.
DJ-2 | DRILLING JIG
The DJ-2 Drilling Jig features a floating bushing housing which allows you to set your drill centerline anywhere along the beam using the built in Imperial or metric rules. It is fast, versatile and can easily be centered simply by setting both sides of the bushing housing to the same distance on each beam.
There is not a more accurate of a way to drill holes with a bit than through a bushing—the accuracy of this jig is unparalleled.
SP-26 | SLIDING PARALLEL
The SP-26 is 26” in length and is approximately 6” in width including the clamping tab. Precisely milled from an aluminum extrusion, this fence features two sliding wedges that allow for incremental 0.001” adjustments of the parallel edges. This is accomplished by using a Vernier scale. The total range of adjustment is one inch, or .5” each side of the zero setting.
Fastened to the business end of the SP-26 is a predrilled aluminum angle that will allow you to attach wooden guides or fixtures for whatever use you can conjure. Attached to the opposite edge is an MDF clamping tab that will allow you to clamp the tool to a bench, machine top or other flat surface without trashing the tool. The clamping tab is replaceable and can be drilled and screwed in place for more permanent applications.
The SP-26 is simple, fast and most important, trustworthy.
TAPERED SLIDING DOVETAIL KIT
By making a precisely fitted dado joint, it is now possible to create tapered sliding dovetails with our HP-6v2 Mini Multi Plane. Our Tapered Sliding Dovetail Kit came in two versions: Basic and Deluxe.
Here’s what was included with the Basic Kit:
• Anodized Aluminum Female Dovetail Front and Rear Sole with Iron, Scoring Cutter and Lateral Wedge Adjustor
• HP-6v2 Male Dovetail Front and Rear Sole with Iron, Scoring Cutter, and Honing Guide
• HP-6v2 Dado Depth Gage
• HP-6v2 Dovetail Gage
• HP-6v2 Depth Fence
• 12” Long Male Dovetail Guide with two hangers
SE | RABBET PLANE
The 2012 SE Rabbet Plane will cut rabbets up to 1.125” in width without a fence shift and can be set to cut to a depth of 1.125”. The body, soles and depth components are milled from solid stainless steel. The fence is milled from aluminum and black anodized. Lastly, the tool can be configured for both right and left handed preferences.
Each of these planes were hand signed and serial numbered. A Walnut Case was also available as an optional accessory when it was released in 2012.
CT-18 | DUAL LOW ANGLE SMOOTHING PLANE
The tradition of wedging an iron to a metal plane bed with a fulcrum lever has remained unchanged for hundreds of years. Although this retention method works fine, it does constrain the aesthetic possibilities for the plane body.
Several years ago we pioneered the use of a toggle lock mechanism in our shoulder planes, and expanded this concept last year to the CT-17 Dual Angle Block Plane. This mechanism allows for the sides of the plane body to be pierced (or skeletonized). These openings, designed specifically for your fingers, dramatically improve the ability to cant the iron in minute increments while reducing the overall weight of the plane.
