    Well, I finished repainting the emmert and did a little work on the top to get closer to installing the aprons.







    I dug out the pieces that I planned on using for the aprons this morning and I think I have a plan. Remaining items on the to-do list, Make/install the aprons; layout/remove material for emmert install; make/layout/install twinscrew; install emmert; fasten top to base; drill dog holes; oil/wax top; Drink a cold beer.

    Jim, I am planning on getting a D4R soon. Maybe you could start another thread and give us your review of your 1st effort. They look pretty good.

    Thanks...

    hi bartee

    ok so my review is in see the other post for that ......but please , stick with the D4R and not the new models that came out .. i dont have any first hand knowledge of them being good or bad .......but for my way of thinking , when you start making something diffrently to cut costs...(aluminum costs have skyrocketed) so leigh has redesigned their way of doing things . the d1600 is no longer available in favor of a newer line of smaller jigs ie. 12 and 18 inches i think . i understand that need to be competitive , but it just makes me very leary. shop carefully
