Power Tools
Lots and Lots of Power Tools
By: Rodney Wilson
Last week, online editor Jon Russelburg and I attended the 2016 International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta, Georgia. It was a whirlwind few days of shaking hands, trading cards, connecting with vendors and looking at power tools - lots and lots of power tools.

We can all agree there's something beautiful about long, perfect shavings scrolling off a jack plane's sharpened blade, but a machine designed to perform a task quickly and accurately is lovely in its own right. And, as Jon and I saw in Georgia, there's an expertly-crafted power tool for just about any shop task you can imagine.

Whether you're a seasoned power tool user or a hand-tool devotee curious about the other side, our new Power Tools Collection is packed with information, tips and tricks to get you plugged in and making furniture (and noise).

Quickly process lumber to flat, perfect boards with "Jointers & Planers" from the Power Tool Essentials series, then master an important shop tool with "The Table Saw," from the same series. "Router Tips for the Period Woodworker" gets you churning out colonial designs with post-colonial speed.

The brand-new "Power Tool Essentials: The Band Saw" DVD and "New Complete Guide to Band Saws" book will help you gain comfort and speed with this versatile machine. And "Bill Hylton's Power-Tool Joinery" eBook shows you how to use your arsenal of power tools to create everything from dovetails to mortise-and-tenon joints.

Priced at just $87.49 (that's over 45% off!), this instructional collection will make a power tool power user out of you. So dust off that wall outlet and learn something new - don't worry, your jack plane will wait for you.

Jointers & Planers - A User's Guide

You’ll learn simple maintenance and accurate setup for both machines, where to stand and how to position your hands and body for the safest, most accurate performance, how to handle boards with twist and cup, the real story on snipe – and how to avoid it, and much more!
