Ouch, again

06-19-2007 08:17 PM by Shopsmithtom | 4 comments »

Well, the last time I saw fit to do the blog thing (you can tell I’m not a big blogger…just check back) was because I decided to see which was tougher, my thumb or my table saw blade. Now, granted, it’s only an old 10ER shopsmith, but it was still tougher than my thumb. In fact, it wasn’t even a fair fight.Now I’m back, a mere 119 days later to blog my little buns off.It seems that the only time I have anything to say, it’s when I hurt myself. Oh well, man...

Sliding Table for table Saw.

06-01-2007 05:21 AM 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...

To Domino or not to Domino

05-13-2007 09:42 PM by Bill | 29 comments »

Ok, so I am sitting here weighing the costs of some tools. On the one hand, the Festool Domino set with dominos, guides, and a dust collector for approximately $1300. On the other hand, I need a table saw and a planer. The money for the domino would likely cover these items. Which way do I go? The Domino would allow me to do mortise and tennon joints much more easily than now. It would have the greater flexibility of positions, large sizes, etc. compared to the mortise machine. But ...

Workshop in Progress #1: My Table Saw is Finally Alive

04-22-2007 07:37 AM by jstewart | 13 comments »

I’m just getting started in woodworking, so I bought a table saw. I purchased a Delta 10” Contractor’s Saw. When I finally got it (4 weeks after the order went to Delta), it was missing a bunch of hardware. I tried to remedy this through Delta, but I was told the “parts” wouldn’t be available until late May. (I originally ordered my saw in early February.) After getting that horrible response, followed by a real lack of concern on Delta’s (or the...

Well this is the second time I’ve wrote this I tried to slip in a picture and ended up losing my whole blog. Oh well, what else have I got to do, it ain’t the first time. To the blog: I’ve spent the better part of two days trying to track down all the parts to my blower/vac I’m talking 200 mph of sucking and blowing power ow, ow, ow, ow, more power (tim the tool man). I needed it because I’ve got about 6-8 inches of saw dust and chips from all the planing and j...
