Mike Pekovich’s Go-To Work Holding Jigs

  • Hello Mike. Nice video. Fast question- if you wish to
    flatten a tough vast board (which usually means beginning
    throughout the grain), how do you deal with that? Do you will have a
    work holding jig? Or do you simply take it to the store’s
    large jointer? 😜

  • I third tgello’s feedback above! Thanks Mike for being such a
    nice trainer!

  • sadly my vice is on the opposite finish due to
    workshop format, so do I,

    change into a molly dooka,

    make new bench

    promote hand instruments, depend on equipment,

    follow turning solely, promote every little thing



  • Nice presentation of jigs which are just about
    indispensable. I want to make make some recommendations,
    nonetheless, that I believe would possibly make a few the jigs extra
    versatile. On the taking pictures boards, the mattress on which the
    work rests wants be solely at or barely increased than the
    decrease fringe of the blade, or about 1/four” above the bench or
    ramp of the taking pictures board, relatively than the 1/2″ that
    seems right here. This maximizes the width of the blade.
    Tempered hardboard or fin-ply is nice for this; 1/four” MDF is
    too tender and can put on rapidly. In the identical vein, the
    top of the cease ought to be the total width of the blade;
    whilst you might normally solely do slim items, this offers you
    the choice of doing wider ones if you might want to. In case you discover
    your self doing numerous skinny items, it’s typically useful to
    use a sloping ramp on the taking pictures board: this offers a
    barely extra shearing lower, however primarily extends the wear and tear
    space on the blade from what finally ends up rapidly being a notch
    to a barely wider space, thus extending time between
    sharpenings. It is also good to chamfer the again fringe of the
    cease because it chips out too.

  • Improbable! Thanks for sharing your data with the
    remainder of us. There isn’t any strategy to thanks for the fingers
    you simply saved on the small elements jig, fast, straightforward, and
    quick. Quite a lot of info in a nicely introduced video.
    Thanks once more.

  • Sure, terrific presentation. One facet of my job is
    instructing individuals find out how to make displays. You could not
    have carried out it higher. And I can use everybody one of many
    jigs. I am headed to the store now.

  • Thanks for an excellent lesson. Particularly just like the jig for
    reducing little items of wooden. Glad you could not see me
    doing it earlier than I noticed this jig.

  • Thanks for the information Mike!

  • Thanks Mike, I additionally take pleasure in your method of instructing. I’ve
    loved your video on handplanes it taught me loads issues
    I used to be not conscious of. You do have a expertise for preserving it
    easy, but explaining it in a method that it doesn’t appear
    technical when it’s. I hope you’ll proceed to create
    extra video’s. Thanks once more

  • Sure — beautifully well-done: not a phrase wasted; at all times
    particular. Kudos — and thanks.

  • Nice trainer. Not one ounce of fats on this video.

  • Thanks Mike for a implausible demonstration of your jigs.
    You make it look really easy and with these jigs hopefully it
    can be.

  • I second tgello’s remark above. Thanks Mike!

  • This man is a good trainer. His rationalization is simplified
    for us newbies and with out the pompous perspective. I listened
    to him on a current podcast and it was fulfilling to take a seat and
    take heed to him. Thanks Mike.
