Clamping parts on one side of your vise can cause it to rack diminishing clamping force and possibly causing damage to the mechanism. Lee Valley sent me their simple and clever Vise Rack Stop to test and review for you.

My review of Rockler's Bench Cookies. Do they really work? Do they still work when dusty?

Can this replace bungie cords and straps?
A quick demonstration on using Eagle America's T- slot bit. This bit ( #143-0982) makes a slot to fit a 1/4-20 bolt head just like aluminum T-track.
Geek fun at it's best! I use the LogMeIn app on my iPad to control my CNC Shark remotely! Not terribly practical, but fun!

Lee Valley's Veritas Dual Marking Gauge. Unorthadox design makes for great flexibility.
My review of Rockler's new Bench Dog branded Push Bloc. They are not going to replace my GRR-Rippers at the table saw, but are excellent at the router table. The Bench Dog branding means that you can buy them from Rockler or at many local hardware stores and home centers.
