Re: DIY Speaker and Subwoofer Enclosure Tools

I too endorse Titebond 3 for virtually all wood bonding unless gapfilling is an issue, then Gorilla-type polyurethane is called for. As an old car audio guy I recommend hole saws for mids and tweets...but I already have dozens of 'em. Dust collection!

Panasonic WM61 Mic is one of the choice for the people who intend to DIY his own speaker testing.

Re: DIY Speaker and Subwoofer Enclosure Tools

My carpenter grade table saw. Out of everything mentioned this is the one thing I would miss the most. I would not even attemp anything using a hand circular saw. They are good for builing decks and framing but not for cabinetry. Did anyone mention a Dado blade?

Re: DIY Speaker and Subwoofer Enclosure Tools

I have an Infinity Dadonator set and love it. 6 tooth chippers and a nice full set of shims (and a cheat sheet to dial you in). Glass smooth dadoes.

So what do y'all use to draw/lay out large circles? I can't seem to find a compass larger than a 12" circle.

Tom
Go to Lee Valley Tools and buy some trammel points. With some planed hardwood and these points you can make a compass of any size needed.

Re: DIY Speaker and Subwoofer Enclosure Tools

I bought the Makita 3901 biscuit jointer, the only available brand and type available in Jakarta. A bit expensive but worth every cent of it, makes perfect joints so easily, anytime.
I built the Troels Gravesen DTQWT huge cabinet using this biscuit joiner, precision is very good and also very strong. Highly recommended!

Re: DIY Speaker and Subwoofer Enclosure Tools

Clamps. Lots and lots of clamps. I started with pipe clamps and they've served me well.



A couple of years ago I stumbled across a great deal on Jet parallel clamps. I'm patiently waiting for another sale. I want more! A clamp rack is a "must have" too.

Re: DIY Speaker and Subwoofer Enclosure Tools

Another DIY circle cutter ploy:
Been using them for years, have three set up, they all work about the same - easy/fast.
The bosch is a nice router for speaker projects, the micro depth adjustment is super.

The inboard handle may need to be removed now and then; added a extra 3/8" hole in plastic handle (side) to access the bolt.
