Fence Upgrade for my table saw?

07-11-2015 03:10 AM by sreno | 5 comments »

Hello there, I have a porter cable 10” table saw (PCB220TS) and was wondering if anybody had any success upgrading to a better fence for it? I am also looking to build a mobile cabinet for it as well if that opens up more opportunities for a better fence system.

Ideally the right solution would be touchscreen (no room for a mouse and keyboard), have internet access a...

Group build for Charity

The concept behind Artisan Care is to create a chance for woodworkers of all levels to come together to learn and make something greater together than they could on their own, then give it away. Our first project went really well and now we are moving toward build number 2! This table will be delivered to a elderly couple raising their granddaughters in Fairview, TN. Their house was recently fully renovated and is n...

After I had cut it, I thought that I should have measured so that the finished product would span a 2×4. So if you do this, remember to measure…. This i...
