Hey Everyone, I hit a snag with my outfeed table last night and figured I’d write about it.
A couple weeks ago I made a hinged outfeed table for my table saw. It worked out great and I have been using it with great success until now. What I realized last night was that I didn’t take into account the tilt of the motor when the angle of the blade is changed. Pretty stupid mistake but I really just needed and outfeed table and didn’t want to spend a lot of time on it. This seems to happen a lot with shop stuff. I have a lot of respect for guys who put as much effort in to shop projects as they do with commissioned or payed projects. It makes sense though, these projects are created to make your work better and you shop time more enjoyable. For some reason though, cabinets and tables that I make for the shop always seem so temporary… and they are since I usually have to replace them due to sloppy craftsmanship or a poor initial thought process.
Anyways, I sort of went on a rant there. It’d be nice to hear some other thoughts about shop projects and the amount of effort put into them. Thanks for listening.
