Updating My Craftsman 113 Table Saw #1: Updating my Craftsman 113 Table Saw (AKA Silk Purse from a Sow's Ear)

03-21-2018 02:36 AM by CRAIGCLICK | 5 comments »

I picked up the woodworking bug when I decided to make some kitchen cabinets for my house “on the cheap.” I had a DREADFUL cheap Ryobi table saw to work with, but even so (thanks to a homemade router table and a decent router), I managed to build some nice plywood cabinets with hardwood face frames and shaker-style doors and drawers. All thanks to some Youtube tutorials and a WHOLE LOT of patience. Not bad for a first try! The problem was that I had now been bitten by the wo...

Steel Rule on Saw and Tape Measure Not Matching

02-16-2018 12:46 AM by IantheTinker | 10 comments »

Hello all, I added a steel rule to my table saw fence rail today and noticed that it doesn’t match up with my tape measure. When I have it set to 32” both match. However, the closer I get to “0”, the greater the difference becomes. I first noticed when I made a cut at 20 1/2”, but when I double checked with my tape measure it said 20 9/16”. So I shifted the indicator line to the right by 1/16”. However, now when my fence is all the way to the blade this is what my indicator line shows. ...

Delta T3 Table Saw Fence

02-06-2018 01:00 AM by IantheTinker | 12 comments »

This is my new T3, freshly installed today after drilling a couple holes in my cast iron top. I did use some existing holes, and therefore the fence center does not line up with my saw blade, which in turn renders the tape useless. I had planned on shifting the tape, but soon after installation I realized it wasn’t a taped on rule, but some sort of paint or powder coating. I like the extra rip capacity I have with the current installation (31 3/4”), and the left side does not block as much of...

Delivery Frustrations!

02-01-2018 01:08 AM by IantheTinker | 5 comments »

I placed an order with Home Depot for the Delta T3 table saw fence on January 17th. I was told estimated delivery was the 26th, then I was told that it would be by the 31st. However, I just saw that they have switched it to “by Feb. 5th”. I also noticed that there are two departure scans from two different places, one from Illinois on the 24th and one from California on the 29th, so there are apparently two separate pieces for the delivery. I am just frustrated that they switch around the ...

My Simple Drill Press Table

01-22-2018 03:05 AM by YesHaveSome | 6 comments »

Since the day I got my drill press I knew I was going to end up building a table for it. Obviously, there are a lot of options out there for how to go about it but I wanted something simple for my first go round. It’s not huge, just 24×14 but it has an adjustable fence with stop block and replaceable zero clearance inserts. The best part was that I built it completely from scraps and hardware I had lying around. The only hiccup along the way was realizing that the crank didn&...

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...

I’ve created a tutorial for converting the extension table on a SawStop table saw (or any table saw with a wooden extension table) into a router table. Check it out here:http://trentdavis.net/2017/01/27/table-saw-enhancement-converting-extension-table-into-router-table/

Questions about my new Biesemeyer fence #1: Need some advice....

11-11-2016 08:30 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 2 comments »

My new Delta table saw came with a Biesemeyer fence. My old Delta had a unifence. Now, I did like the unifence and found it to be rock solid and versatile. I particularity like the flip stop on the bottom of the rail. Man, I used the stew out of that feature. Now, today….the Biesemeyer fence doesn’t have this feature. I am hoping my LJ buddies out in Workworkland can give me a hand. (poet and don’t know it) What do you all use to ‘remember’ settings on your &#...

Workbench upgrades

05-21-2016 12:25 AM by woodworkerguyca | 0 comments »

So here’s the dilemma for the router, how to hold it in… I found the standard base way more friendly than the plunge base, but the plunge base is spring loaded, so I’m not sticking that in upside down. This means the base has gotta come out real easy. Sloppy drilled holes with aluminum pins act as hinges for the plywood support arms. The theory checks out and holds it solid while clamped like this, but it needs a little something more to keep it up. Here is the wa...
