Confessions of a Novice Handsaw Filer

260 days ago by summerfi | 12 comments »

These are my observations about learning to sharpen handsaws, along with some reminiscing about years gone by. I will say at the outset that I consider myself a beginning handsaw filer. I still fall short of what I would call an accomplished filer, and I’m certainly no expert. As I’m still in learning mode, these observations are not intended to be instructional. Perhaps, however, my observations will be helpful, or at least interesting, to other beginners. I doubt that experienced handsaw fi...

Table Saw Extension / Router Table #5: Top is Done

308 days ago by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

Well, I got the top of the router table done. The next step is to make the 3 drawers that go in the cabinet. Shown in the photo is my set up for milling the rabbets and dados in the drawer pieces. I temporarily put the sacrificial fence from my table saw on the table saw fence to use with the router. The last part of this project before painting will be to make a proper router fence. It will still attach to the table saw rip fence, but will have a few bells and whistles. [Edit] I mi...

Table Saw Extension / Router Table #4: Starting to take shape

313 days ago by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

Today’s efforts went into building the router table insert onto which the router will be mounted. I laminated a piece of Luan to the 1/2 inch plywood to make it look nice. The underside of the plywood has been routed out to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. I hope to create different throat inserts for when I have smaller work pieces. I also installed 3 lengths of 3/8 inch threaded rod with which the cabinet will be fastened to the table saw. That way I can remove it if I should wa...

Table Saw Extension / Router Table #3: Working on the top

315 days ago by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

I’m going to finish the top and install it before installing the drawers. It should be easier that way to get my hands inside, plus I always build the drawers last just in case my ideal measurements were not met. This wooden piece matches the profile of the edge on the table saw, allowing me to use the rip fence further away from the blade and also use the rip fence to hold my router fence. The piece will be attached on the edge of the router table top. Here is a better view of t...

Table Saw Extension / Router Table #1: I Gots da Wood

321 days ago by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Because I am often frustrated by the limitations of my small table saw, I decided to put this project on the front burner. Today I drove up to a friend’s house to rescue him from being buried under too much wood. I came away with some 1/2 inch plywood less than 2 feet square and a few other goodies for future use. Then I headed down to my big box store and bought some hardware and a sheet of 1/2 inch plywood. I had it cut in quarters so that it would fit in my car. (Last time I asked...

Dewalt 925H Radial Arm Saw

346 days ago by sblg43 | 6 comments »

I recently inherited this RAS from a friend. He told me that he had a RAS that he didn’t need any longer and if I didn’t have one, he would give it to me. He didn’t tell me anything about it. When he showed up, I have to admit that I wasn’t impressed with what I saw. My friend said that he used it for 30 years until he got a table saw, then he hardly ever used it. I had previously given away my Craftsman because I didn’t have the space – but I alw...
