“Install: Straightforward And Simple…”

I just got the fence installed and have been using it for only two days, but let me tell you of my experience. 
Install: Straightforward and simple, I installed on a Jet left tilt 3HP saw with 52″ table, no issues with install Use: For whatever reason I had issues with my stock Jet fence, I continually burned the piece of wood between the fence and blade. I found this problem with Birch, Maple, and Cherry. I was running a Forrest blade (new) with a Forrest 5″ vibration reduction disc. I calibrated the table (miter slots) to the blade and the fence to the miter slots and checked the fence time after time to ensure it was dead on accurate (square to blade and table).

Now I cannot explain why or how, or what the science or reasoning is behind it but now that I have installed and calibrated this fence…no more burn. Same blade, same wood, different fence. Go figure, but I am friggin happy about that. This seemingly simple addition to my table saw has made it much nicer and more accurate to use.  I have only had it two days and have not had the opportunity to scratch the surface of the available options I can add with the T-Slots. Kudos to you fellas who created this beast… I’m diggin’ it.”

“I Am The Proud Owner Of A VerySuperCool Tools T-Square”

“I am the proud owner of a new VerySuperCoolTools T-square and am using on a 1961 Craftsman cabinet saw. Many years ago I replaced the original with Craftsman’s Exact-I-Rip and lately it won’t hold the alignment with the blade. Seems I have to re-adjust each time. The new T-square is the best investment I could have made for the saw.” – Bill Rouleau

“I Would Recommend This Fence To Anyone And Would Buy It Again”

I am a DIYer and I formerly owned an Incra Positioner but found the process to be too cumbersome when I needed to change my cuts.I saw this fence reviewed on Wood Whisperer and after much research I decided to pull the trigger on buying one.

When the fence arrived it was well packed and had all the parts listed on the packing list. The quality/manufacturing of all the parts was first class. Prior to mounting the fence I had to install some Biesemeyer rails I had bought. Mounting the rails was the most difficult part as the bolt holes had to be drilled and tapped. Once the rails were mounted, and following the excellent instructions, the fence was installed, adjusted and ready to use in about 30 minutes. The saw I mounted the fence on is a General 2 HP contractor saw. I have yet to use any jigs on the fence but I am sure it will be easy when do decide to use it on the extruded aluminum. I am looking forward to adding a digital scale. I would recommend this fence to anyone and would buy it again.” – Fred

“I Recommended This Fence System To My Dad, Then I Got Jealous And Bought One For Myself”

steve table saw“I recommended this fence system to my Dad, then I got jealous and bought one for myself. Neither of us are what you’d call seasoned metalworkers, and both of us had to build our own rail assembly. My Dad had some help from a fellow who really knows his way around a metal shop, and then my Dad and I teamed up on my saw install.

My saw is a DeWalt DW746X, and my Dad’s is some kind of Grizzly. There’s really no magic knowhow to installing a fence system. You measure, you drill, you tap, then you bolt it on. In spite of this being literally the first time I’d used a grinder in anger, my final product looks great, works well, and is solid. Allan’s not talking smack when he says you can attach it to any saw.

Watch the videos, get some taps, some cutting fluid and you’re good to go. If you’re nervous about it, buy some extra metal and work the kinks out of your technique first.

The only thing I’ve found that I think could be made better is the UHMW Plastic used to make the fence slider. The edges should be rounded over so it doesn’t catch on miter slots, T-Tracks, and all that. Of course it’s easy enough to do myself, but it detracted from my experience a little bit when I first dropped it onto the saw.

If you want to see more pictures and so forth from my build, you can go to my blog post, More Love For The Table Saw at www.Indisputablefacts.wordpress.com

“It’s Just So Much Damn Fun Sharpening Again”

I love keeping my planes and chisels sharp and particularly restoring old tools that I’ve picked up cheap around the traps.
When I saw your video on You tube I thought I would give the sharpening jig a go.
It’s a beauty. It’s so easy to get a micro bevel and keep the tools ridiculously sharp. I don’t hesitate now to use my regular chisels for jobs I would have avoided in the past for fear of damaging them. It’s just so much damn fun sharpening them again.

I volunteer all the time to put a decent edge on some of the chisels or planes owned by other guys at our mens shed and they are amazed at how sharp they are when they get them back. I suppose I should tell them about the jig but its more fun being the sharp tool “guru” and just handing them back with a smile.” – Steve Williams

“My Favorite Tool In My Woodshop!”

“Took delivery on my jig yesterday, spent a couple of hours copying Allan’s 
jig for holding the diamond plates, (hope you don’t mind Allan) and put this thing to the test. I just want to say this is now my favorite tool in my woodshop! A really sharp chisel is such a joy to use, though probably one of the more dangerous ones in the shop… DAMHIKT. 
Thanks Allan for a great product.” – Frederick

“Plane Irons And Chisels Sharper Than They Have Ever Been”

“I’ll keep this short and sweet: I’ve used all sorts of jigs and sharpening techniques through the years. The VSC Tools Sharpening Jig combined with the DMT stones that Allan demonstrates in his videos gets my plane irons and chisels sharper than they’ve ever been and does so in record time. It’s no exaggeration to say that one could shave with the edge produced by the jig, and that it can be produced so quickly is astonishing. It also bears mentioning that my hands rest very comfortably using the jig, so there was zero fatigue even after initially blowing through over a dozen sharpening procedures as soon as the jig arrived.

Unfortunately for the Very Super Cool Tools folks, the jig is so stout and well built that I can’t ever imagine having to replace it. No ‘planned obsolescence’ with this tool – it’s made to last a lifetime.” – Lee R.

“In Just 10 Minutes … The Best Edge I’ve Ever Managed”

What can i say? This thing is the Duck’s Nuts (Australian slang for “pretty damn good”

I have only had it in my hands for 10min and i’ve already put the best edge i’ve ever managed on my fave 8mm Marples chisel. I’m a novice at sharpeneing and, to be honest, in the past a little nervous to try (in case i wreck the factory edge)

Using the best quality honing device in the past….i have “rounded over” the square end of the chisel. The reason……

1…..the guide wheel is often smaller than the tool to be sharpened, providing a very thin base of support = instabilty

2… the strokes on the stone are small as the honing device is on the stone

3…..the tool is held by the same mechanism for fine adjustment…DOH!

The result is hit and miss at best……small wobbly strokes = spoonlike facet. I spent about 35mins on the same 8mm chisel with my old honing device before the tool slipped in the mount……nearly severed my finger, losing the setting = have to start from scratch (the chisel has been so rounded over that i thought needs to be grinded back professionally).

In steps the ultimate sharpening jig……arrived today, well packed.

Had the chisel in it within 30mins (had to make kids packed lunches first). On to my SiC cheapo stone course side….bish, bash, bosh….I’ve totally squared it in under 10 mins……How so?

You can watch the vids so i wont repeat the obvious, but in use, because the platform is so stable you are able to apply full purchase to the system. Yes, that’s right, I absolutely beasted the chisel and stone (how else was i gonna get it done before school drop off)…I can see that the SiC probably wont last the pace long term but it’s a consumable, right? I’m now off to look at diamond stones.

This is a great product supported by good people (i’ve chatted to Allan over skype)……..as honest, and down to earth as the edge on my “new” 8mm.” – Gary Osborne

“…Truly Fantastic. It Performs Exactly How Allan Describes It In His Videos”

The VSCT Sharpening Jig is truly fantastic. It performs exactly how Allan describes it in his videos.

But that is a major benefit of the jig…Allan’s videos. There are simply no other jigs with this much Video demonstration. When I had a question about the product, Allan, Sue and Jeff responded to me.

I am restoring a number of antique planes and chisels and the level of sharpness I am achieving has probably never been achieved on these blades.

Great product, terrific customer service.” – Mark P.
