    It’s pronounced Swee-Zah-n.

  2. Wade Tomczyk on January 7, 2023 at 2:07 am

    Killer stuff. Router set up jig is cool but they should make it for both sides of bit. As everyone knows due to length of back stop and two lock down knobs you have to measure other end anyway to make it the same or maybe that’s just me.

  3. Thomas Kila on January 7, 2023 at 2:08 am

    I will check out the Massca Dowel Jig X. Where did you get your "tool wall"?

  4. Mike Guntzburger on January 7, 2023 at 2:08 am

    Love the video and love the shirt!

  5. Let's Go Brandon on January 7, 2023 at 2:09 am

    The doweler doohicky looks like a great idea but setup/clamping seems like it would be tricky. Maybe a lip on one side would at least allow it to be pressed one way for alignment sake. One lipped for 3/4 goods and one flat for universal applications would be beuno. Tubafor!

  6. F. D. on January 7, 2023 at 2:10 am

    As a chair-maker by trade, I never liked pocket screws. The dowl-X looks pretty amazing and could open up a lot of possibilities for functional furniture.

  7. rcud1 on January 7, 2023 at 2:13 am

    I’ll have to try that dowel jig. There’s better tape measures out there.

  8. Todd Beaulieu on January 7, 2023 at 2:14 am

    Anyone using a router table a lot needs to look at the Incra LS Positioner.

  9. Ben Taylor on January 7, 2023 at 2:15 am

    On the stanly tapes the rubber can remove pencil marks. I bet those you showed would do the same.

  10. Euge Morin on January 7, 2023 at 2:15 am

    Real pros are not watching or making videos on youtube

  11. Peter Chessell on January 7, 2023 at 2:15 am

    Aluminum?

  12. Muppet Arms on January 7, 2023 at 2:16 am

    I would have loved to get the Massca Dowel Jig X, but the postage to Australia is about twice the price of the unit.

  13. Vasil Hristov on January 7, 2023 at 2:20 am

    It is 21st century. Still mentioning inches?

  14. peaceprostudio2 on January 7, 2023 at 2:21 am

    I like the fast cap Lefty Righty tape measure

    The Whole Armor of God, Ephesians 6:10-18 NKJ

    10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

    14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—

  16. Wendy Lambert on January 7, 2023 at 2:25 am

    Omg that first tool rocks!

  17. Darryl Buckett on January 7, 2023 at 2:28 am

    Pity the tape measure doesn’t have metric. Cheers

  18. Craig Fehr on January 7, 2023 at 2:29 am

    The link the the Rockler router jig doesn’t seem to work. Do you have a new one? Thanks!!

  19. michaelf1900 on January 7, 2023 at 2:30 am

    You might want to let people know that the Dowel jig X is not available till February 2023

  20. Vince B on January 7, 2023 at 2:31 am

    I love the drill bit tray, have one just like it LOL

  21. Ethnosis on January 7, 2023 at 2:32 am

    My fastcap tape has both SAE/Metric but on the SAE Side it shows the fractions. Comes in very handy for someone who grew up with basically only metric. I’ve had mine for about 3 years, my shop ordered brand new ones for some new guys and I checked the accuracy with the new ones and it’s still perfect after being dropped hundreds of times

  22. John on January 7, 2023 at 2:32 am

    Accidentally clicked on this and I’m not a woodmaker but the quality of the video and your explanations are just great. The examples and explanations clearly show you are a great teacher. Thanks for putting this video together and you’ve got a new subscriber.

  23. TNtoolman on January 7, 2023 at 2:33 am

    My favorite tape measure… Stanley metal case 12 ft. No huge bulky casing you get with longer tapes and over 99% of the neasurements in my shop are under 12 ft. I have them attached to ttols and work areas in a few spots with screw-on earth magnets… under $10 at the Depot.

  24. Brian Elton on January 7, 2023 at 2:33 am

    The only problem I’ve found with flush cut saws is storage. Not the storage itself, but when you do store it, if you’re not careful, the teeth get damaged.
    But no matter how careful you are, if you let someone else use your saw it almost always comes back damaged.
    I really like your videos. BTW.

  25. K S on January 7, 2023 at 2:34 am

    FastCap makes an even better tape measure than that. It has all those features plus the measurements labeled down to 1/16th of an inch, which makes reading a measurement massively easier and more likely to be accurate. And they are SO CHEAP too. FastCap makes great great stuff.

  26. ryanedwardking on January 7, 2023 at 2:36 am

    Got the massca jig. I’m stoked. I need to make a picture ledge for my wife and she liked the look of it too. Love your channel. I am a woodworker, have a home gym, am fond of things that launch projectiles at high speed, and I’m a pastor. I think we could be buddies. Ha! Thanks for the great content. I really enjoy your channel. Keep up the good work.

  27. Acornwerx on January 7, 2023 at 2:37 am

    The Massca Dowel Jig X For Angled Dowel Joints are all sold out. You are able to pre-order for a February 2023 ship. They are $24.99 right now. Yes, after watching this video I pre-ordered one. Is it February yet?

  28. Paul Hopkins on January 7, 2023 at 2:38 am

    The Fastcap flat is my favorite tape for layout, having a tape that lies flat like a ruler is so nice

  29. George st george on January 7, 2023 at 2:39 am

    That is my favorite saw. I bought it because of all the bad reviews by people who don’t know how to use a saw. Worth every penny.

  30. McKay Sleight on January 7, 2023 at 2:40 am

    I like the message of the shirt.!

  31. Joel on January 7, 2023 at 2:41 am

    Went to buy the Massca Dowel Jig X, ended up getting that, a clamp, and their pocket hole system on sale for Black Friday. This is perfect for an outdoor picnic table I’m building and some garage cabinets.

  32. Trident DIY on January 7, 2023 at 2:41 am

    Foldable dovetail saw in the UK is nearly £100 :O

  33. Thaddeus Stevens on January 7, 2023 at 2:41 am

    DOWELS?! BLAGH!

  34. Scott Ashley on January 7, 2023 at 2:42 am

    Thanks for the tips!

    Also, I respectfully submit that if yer a #redneck, the correct spelling for #getorganized is g-i-t…#gitorganized.

    Happy New Year!

  35. Ronin on January 7, 2023 at 2:42 am

    You know what is better than under $30? FREE !

  36. Mitchel Gainey on January 7, 2023 at 2:43 am

    What is that thing behind you?

  37. MrMulligan84 on January 7, 2023 at 2:43 am

    That X dowel jig is cool – Massca increase your presence in Canada please 🙂

  38. Michael Saffold on January 7, 2023 at 2:45 am

    I lost my favorite fastcap tape measure I finally found it in a shoe after I got two more so check your shoes for that missing tape measure 😂

  39. grant williams on January 7, 2023 at 2:46 am

    I just Got a right to left tape measure from lee valley for like $9 and it’s honestly a game changer. It’s so much nicer for furniture scale work!

  40. SomeDumUsrName on January 7, 2023 at 2:47 am

    Damn man! What a SCORE! I want ALL these!

  41. Jordan Rappenecker on January 7, 2023 at 2:48 am

    Where did you get the pegboard sections for your tool wall?

  42. Mason Elliott on January 7, 2023 at 2:49 am

    That’s a sweet-lookin’ shirt! Where can I get one?

  43. tkdko on January 7, 2023 at 2:50 am

    Awesome video. I love these for stocking stuffers for me and my son. Love your shirt also.

  44. Kyle Lanoue on January 7, 2023 at 2:51 am

    It would be cool if they included a special drill bit to help with tear out. I wonder if drilling through tape would help with that.

  45. harm864 on January 7, 2023 at 2:53 am

    Love your videos! The lefty/righty FastCap tape measure (the green one) is my go-to. I am right-handed but I use a tape measure the way a left-handed person would, so I was always trying to read upside-down numbers. Many measurements went awry, and a whole bunch of wood was wasted. FastCap lefty/righty was a game-changer for me.

  46. Samuel Rivera on January 7, 2023 at 2:55 am

    I received the massca dowel jig x, and would have liked it if they had a center line indicator. I’m going to continue playing with this.

  47. James A on January 7, 2023 at 2:57 am

    I tuned in to find out what Tyson fury knew about tools

  48. Thomas Lindsey on January 7, 2023 at 2:59 am

    What or where was the name tag info. Thank you.

    Lol don’t put a sticker on the tape, Fastcap makes them so you can write your measurements on the tape with a pencil
