Modern Sawboard #1: Brainstorming for ideas...

858 days ago by chopnhack | 6 comments »

Well the sawboard is a pretty simple jig, but man is it invaluable! The other day I needed to rip long taper cuts on a 2×6 and it was just the tool. I have been thinking about incorporating some holding clamps to the base to make it quicker to set up and use. This is what I came up with as my first run at design. I am thinking this would be ideal for breaking down plywood. The overall length is longer than 8’ so the design is two ply to allow for overlap. One side has a piece of ...

Amazing Tools #4: cedar shake saws

1870 days ago by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

This is without a doubt the scariest looking sawyer job I’ve seen yet. Check out how casually he thrusts his unsupervised hand at the 4’+ tall circular saw blade! There are many more videos of people in this job with these saws on YouTube. Scary stuff.

Bowsaw #1: Nice Kit!

1840 days ago by Jon3 | 5 comments »

The ever popular Joel over at Tools for Working Wood (also Grammery Tool), whom I also got my excellent Holdfasts from, has produced a nice bowsaw kit. I’ve been interested in picking up a tool like this for a while, as I’m inherently lazy, and I don’t like to take the resaw blade off my bandsaw for light scroll work, so I’ve been considering a hand tool to save me that time. The website also makes some excellent measured drawings available in PDF form, even if you...

Woodshop Build #1: Table Saw

158 days ago by VarnellWoodworks | 5 comments »

Just like many woodworkers out there, I am obsessed with my tools. They perform a function in my shop but they are more than just functional. They provide a sense of pride and aesthetic beauty that only my fellow woodworkers can understand. We spend countless hours mulling over specs. reviews, online videos, pricing, and countless other factors to find that perfect addition to the shop. When we find that perfect hand tool or piece of machinery, we obsess over fine tuning, adding accessori...

Design of a Static Table Saw

1751 days ago by k1114n | 5 comments »

The aim of this project is to design and build a static-blade saw that replaces the rotating blade with a japanese handsaw blade which is very thin and removes little wood during the cut leaving a very thin ‘kerf’ (< 0.5mm). Japanese handsaws are well known to cut aggressively and unlike european saws they do so on the pull stroke. Also, the blades in japanese handsaws are designed to be easily removed from the handle. If this blade were fixed at a slight slope away from the in...

Breathing life into a trusty saw

101 days ago by GodofBiscuits | 5 comments »

I bought my Craftsman table saw about 6 years ago now and it’s been a good saw as long as you took extra special care to ensure the horrid fence it came with was straight each and every time you moved it. The fence system that came in these saw is appalling to say the least and down right garbage when compared to a good biesemeyer style fence. Last week using the saw, I moved the fence and spent several minutes trying to get it straight so I didn’t ruin the beautiful piece of curl...

Sliding Table for table Saw.

2615 days ago by Karson | 5 comments »

In a couple of my Blogs or Projects I’ve mentioned my Sliding Table. I thought I’d give you a view of it. It’s made by Exaktor Tools Phil Humphry was the owner and engineer who designed the table. It looks like new owners now.It was a tossup between the Exaktor and Excalibur . The table saw that I purchased was a Fay-Egan commercial saw. The files of the Manufacture have been destroyed so no history exists that give serial numbers and dates manufactured. The company went bankrupt in 1937, ot...
