@TimG45 I needed to make a set from olive wood so I bought the Ryobi with spiral blades and it did just fine. This is the hinge I like these for the lack of having to align the drill hole. But now I'm thinking maybe cut the pin slot and do the routing then cut it on the box joint jig.
Awesome tool and the vase is beautiful. Went down to the craft show in Las Vegas last month and could not believe the prices for the wood turning, pens $250. and up, bowls $700. and up. Thought to myself as I noticed his stock on the last day still full "With that volume he could of lowered his prices and made more money" the other wood turning booth was about empty of stock on the last day and he had reasonable prices, his prices were about 25% of the other guys. While I was talking with him he said he makes enough in the Las Vegas show to live on the whole year, he still doe's other special order stuff through the year while he's turning for the Vegas show he said he made over $80,000. in sales at this show, I believe him that place was hard to walk through with all the people
