  • Tenon Cutters

    I was curious if anyone in the fourm owns or has used a tenon cutter for making log furniture. I have seen some tenon attachments that go on 1/2 and 3/4 drills, common sense tells me that those things could rip your arms off at the sockets but I am interested in a easy and quicker method for cutting tenons and I' m not sure if this is the answer.

    I have looked throughout the net and have seen no reviews other than the hype manufacturers place on their products, anyone input from real people would be appreciated.

    Tenon cutters I have seen were used with a traditional woodworker's bit and brace. I don't know about using with a power drill.

    A Traditional woodworking forum where I am sure you can get an answer to your question can be found at the Fine WoodWorking magazine site, I think the linkage on Taunton Press' home page is called the "Knot discussion" under the woodworking column. try this link: http://www.taunton.com/finewoodworki...unityHome.aspx
    or

    I do recommend you bring your "thick skin" if you post there. Woodworking forums are not alway as polite as this site.

      I appreciate the info and the heads up on the tone of that link. I suppose it makes one appreciate the level of civility we practice here.

        GB Phil is right......Interesting place "over there"...... SawmillCreekdotorg is a much more civil place.

        I would think that a drill mounted tenon cutter would work just fine on spruce/pine or other soft woods....especially if it is kept sharp.

          Steve, here's an alternative from Rockler tools. It's table mounted and doesn't use a drill.

            Another excellent link, thanks Mike.

            I beleive I had seen or read about that when I was still overseas and my only concern is the limited diameter which that can accept. Although I have been wanting projects for my new router table....I really hate decisions, especially when they are expensive.

              Just Wondering...

              Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

              With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

              I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

              Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

              I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

              If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

              Hi Linda, great find...I think.

              Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
