Video: Jim Tolpin’s ‘Secret of the Sector’
In the June 2011 issue we have Jim Tolpin building the “Ultimate Router Table.”
Nah, just yanking your chain.
He’s actually building a wombat house.
Ha. Got you.
In truth, Tolpin wrote a great article about how to build and use a “sector.” What’s a sector? It is like magic wands that have been hinged together. With just two sticks and a little hinge, you can use a sector to solve many workshop math problems that would involve nutty fractions, a calculator, or…. horrors…. the metric system.
I prepared a short video about the simple sector I built for our shop. This little video shows only two of the many tricks a sector can do. Look for the complete article in the June 2011 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine.
