DIY Table Saw Fence #1: Table Saw Fence

12-10-2007 07:21 AM by Hutch | 282 comments »

This is my old tablesaw fence. It is a little hard to see from the photo, but I cracked it trying to “micro-adjust” it. So I started to look for an aftermarket fence, of which there are some really nice ones out there. I just didn’t want to spend quite as much as they were asking because I have a previously owned Central Machinery tablesaw. I also was curious to see if I could come up with my own fence. I was worried about two things with most diy fence systems that...

Router Table #1: Design ideas, need some feedback

02-18-2009 09:44 PM by PurpLev | 43 comments »

OK, so yeah – another blog about a router table, but since I’m going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I’ve had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2 1/4hp). It had the misfurtune of being on the floor when my basement was flooded a couple of years ago, so that top was ruined. I since have been planning to replace it with a shop-built version, and make a full enclosed ...

My 35 Year Old Table Saw (part one)

04-15-2017 03:33 PM by Mage | 24 comments »

This is my tablesaw… There are many like it but this one is mine. For 35 years, eight major moves (including a very cold stint to Canada) multiple minor moves, being broiled, and frozen, and dropped, this saw has been my partner in woodworking magic. I am now retired, with a dedicated shop and the time and inclination to Pimp… My… Saw!!! I checked to see if there was a Hollywood TV version that would take pity and if I went on the show would do it for free. Alas, no. I w...

Router Table #12: The Good the Bad and the Ugly... New Fence Arrived

01-31-2010 02:07 AM by PurpLev | 22 comments »

I saw an ad on craigslist for a Jointech 12” router fence positioner which is similar to the Incra LS positioner -has a lead screw, and has what Incra sells as add on – the “wonder fence” as the standard fence. the guy posted it as used, but at what Jointech is selling it NEW… I contacted the person trying to negotiate a win-win situation. that was 2 weeks ago. the jointech fence is still on craigslist. I just couldn’t justify his price for a fence I’...

New Shop in the Raw #5: "Uni" = One - a very heavy one

12-12-2015 02:55 AM by builtinbkyn | 14 comments »

After considering asking some friends to come help me move the Unisaw and drop it from the furniture cart to the floor, which was a total of five inches, I decided to take this task on myself. I have no doubt they would have had no issue in doing so, but I figured I’d save everyone involved the risks of crushed toes, fingers and the possibility of a hernia. The saw cabinet and top probably weigh in at about 525lbs or so. Besides it’s close to the holiday and I’m sure they...

Work(shop) in Progress #7: New Table Saw: Phenolic Zero Clearance Inserts and Fence Faces for Ridgid R4511

03-29-2009 07:11 AM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

So, New Saw, New Zero Clearance Inserts are due! Actually I was planning on working my the Bead Box, but wanted to fine tune the table saw, and ‘get it done’ first, and so, the plan was to use the 5/8” phenolic (not phenolic plywood) panel that I got (I got a 1-3/8” phenolic panel to use as a router table top, and while at it, picked up some ‘lighter’ thinner panels as well, for inserts, plates, etc). I figured – I already have it, and might as wel...

Harry's new router table and fence design #2: Adjustable router table fence

05-20-2012 01:43 PM by TheHarr | 12 comments »

My earlier router table fences lacked control. I would tap one side and the other would move. Tapping is an inexact way to move something in very small increments. I’ve hit on a very inexpensive, easy to make, router adjustment system that works well. It can quickly, and easily, zero in on precise fence adjustments. This fence is attached to the table using four bolts that can be set up and removed in just a couple of minutes. So less talking and more photos; thanks to my neighbor...
