Delta T2 36-T30 Fence on a Grizzly G1022Z Table Saw

12-28-2011 07:33 AM by superstretch | 5 comments »

INTROFor Christmas, my bro and I gave my dad the above mentioned fence as a gift. I had read in a few places that people had successfully (albeit blasphemy) mounted this fence to a G1022Z. I had my reservations, but after looking at the equivalent Shop Fox and Vega models (waaay more expensive), we decided to pull the trigger and get one from a well-respected buyer on ebay. At the same time, ebay was running a ‘fast and free’ shipping promotion. I ordered the fence on a Tuesday an...

Shop Improvements #5: Band Saw Fence Finished

12-12-2011 01:41 AM by wolflrv | 3 comments »

In the previous post I had a pic of the glue up for my little bandsaw fence. I finished it today and thought I’d post a couple of pics. The bandsaw is old, but I got it for $10 at a garage sale and all it needed was a new blade. The switch is dead, but the variable speed still works. I just flip it on and off via a power strip switch. It works for now! It’s a very simple design, but works very well. The wood plate on the back is loose, so it kind of floats into plac...

Shop Improvements #4: Shopmade Grr-Ripper, Heat and Bandsaw Fence

12-10-2011 01:41 AM by wolflrv | 4 comments »

In my quest to outfit my shop, I’ve spent quite a bit already on the major tools, so I’m trying to make my own jigs and do my own upgrades as I can. With the types of small wood projects I’m interested in doing, I really need a way to cut small dimensions. I do have an old Black&Decker table top bandsaw, that has definitely seen better days, but other than the tablesaw, no really efficient way to get 1/8”, 1/4” and 1/2” stock other than plywood, which I...

Ugly blade mark

08-28-2011 08:05 PM by poospleasures | 4 comments »

If you do not want this !Do this ContactTo protect your table saw fence from that ulgy blade mark, set the fence about .125” from the blade, Drill a hole, thread it and install a machine screw finger tight. This will effectively stop you from sliding the fence by accident into a spinning saw blade. Should you want the fence on the other side of the blade just unscrew the stop. The reason for offering this tip is I did it when I was young and more careless. I did not like the terri...

52 Weeks #32: Some work around the office and what a bargain.

08-15-2011 03:31 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

One of the things that I like about my job is that I get to do a little bit of everything; it lets me be the “jack of all trades” that I so like to be. Recently the bathroom sink in our employee area fell off of the wall after being stuck to it for almost 30 years. It was decided to do a little bit of a redesign, since most people were not overly thrilled with the small sink we had anyway. I had some help in assembly from one of my new employees who is getting more interested in the wood work...

Jigs and techniques #3: Bandsaw resaw fence

03-12-2011 05:16 AM by GregD | 6 comments »

As I was getting to the stage in my door project that required a lot of resawing, I started looking for information on how to do that. On the web and also in the classroom of my local Woodcraft store I saw tall shop-made fences used for resawing. So I decided to build one. I selected 3/4” melamine for the fence. The melamine faces provide a relatively hard, slick surface for the fence face, and the particle board substrate does not have a propensity to warp. Unfortuantely, the st...

A workshop out of the floodplane #3: A new fence for the old saw

01-19-2011 05:20 PM by withheld | 0 comments »

Based on Jamie's blog entries on upgrading a Craftsman table saw with a new delta T2 fence, I decided to do the same.The fence arrived last night I might need some better drill bits for the job and a good center punch, if I understand his blog entries, but it sounds like the thing to do is proceed very slowly and carefully. Which in my case means measure 10 times, cut once. As an aside the thing the fence is resting on is a small pegboard tool holder I started working on. Given my skill...

Did you just buy a new bandsaw and it didn’t come with a fence? Did you spend all of your money and really don’t have it in your budget to purchase a fence system right now? Continue Reading...

Workshop Upgrades #3: Ridgid 4511 router table

11-14-2010 02:47 AM by jcwalleye | 5 comments »

Once I got the fence upgraded as described in the second blog of this series it was time to get the router table built. Here are some pictures of the granite table added as a right wing to the Ridgid 4511 table saw. Glued up 2” of mdf and laminated top and bottom with leftovers from a local cabinet shop. OK, it’s only as heavy as granite. Here the laminated slab is ready for cutting dados for the mitre and t-tracks. Here are reference lines on masking tape for aligning the insert tem...
