Convex / concave surface router jig - 7 replies

This is just a variation of a very common router surfacing jig, except instead of flat surface it creates convex or concave one. The bridge that supports the router has curved beams (R= 194 cm) which I cut using oversized circle cutting jig. The frame is made from Bosch 45mm T-slot aluminum extrusions and brackets that are very handy for buil...

Blade tilt on sliding saws - 2 replies

Unlike traditional table saws, which could be right or left tilting, sliding saws seem to always be right tilting with table on the left. I understand the rationale of this arrangement, but are there exceptions from this rule? Namely, left tilt with slider on the left.Thank you.

Festool TS75 depth stop adjustment problem - 8 replies

When depth stop on my TS75 is set to 0 the saw blade does not reach to the surface of the material by about 1.5 mm. This is without guide rail and with Festool stock blade (actually measured diameter is 209.5 mm). If this was the other way around (the blade reaches too deep) it could be adjusted with a set screw on top of the depth stop. In my c...

Disassembling a joint - 3 replies

After gluing a drawer with Titebond 2 I later discovered that one if the dado joins was not pushed in completely. The glue has already cured overnight. I have used PVA glues (Titebond and others) for heat activated veneering and wondered if I could soften up the glue enough to fix the joint. I placed the iron on it for a minute or so, but it did...

Saw blade question (210mm, 30mm arbor) - 4 replies

Besides Festool itself who else manufactures 210 mm blades with 30 mm arbor (for TS75)? I’ve seen few by Oshlun, but that’s about it. Just exploring the alternatives. I expected a large company such as Freud to make them, but couldn’t find any. Looks like a rare combination.

Replacement arbor bearings - 0 replies

I’m looking for replacement bearings for table saw arbor. Instead of getting them directly from the manufacturer I thought it might be cheaper to buy elsewhere ( etc.). What technical specs should I be looking for in this type of application (besides the obvious: right size, sealed). ABEC rating? Alloy type? Lubricant type?

Flex-drive in table saws - 2 replies

Are flex-drives often used on Craftsman saws reliable components? Seems like a convenient way to transfer power, but there must be a reason it has not become industry standard. Big transfer losses (friction)? What is the downside? If you used it, did it serve you well? The question is about flex-drive only, not the saw itself.
