Benchdog Cast Iron Router Table on SawStop pic, per request

04-17-2017 06:14 PM by BikerDad | 0 comments »

So, Pat (aka Fishman33) has asked for some pics of how my Benchdog Router table is attached to my SawStop. This is a pic of my SawStop PCS before I built my new “station” for it. The tablesaw “wing” setup has not changed from this pic, only the base has changed. From the back of the saw, moving to right to left, the wings are SawStop Sliding Table in place of the wing. Then the Saw, Solid Extension Wing, Solid Extension Wing (this one was formerly where the Slidi...

Cleaning #4: Preparing for phase II

04-10-2017 03:49 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

After Several years (9 on this site) after setting up shop and posting 41 projects, multiple blog and forum posts, I’m doing a retrofit of the shop. Nothing spectacular, just adjusting a couple of things. I’m getting ready for the next 41 builds. On my radar pretty much in this order: A bridal chest for my daughter who’s getting married in September, A kitchen table, on of the last pieces of furniture of the house after a complete remodel of it and furniture, A dining table ...

Note to self: Put blade in facing forward, it cuts better

04-08-2017 07:53 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 11 comments »

I freely present my stupidity for all to see… Today I got the dust collection hooked up on my new Sawstop. I aligned everything and started it up. Try something simple, a soft spruce piece of 2×4. Smoke and burning wood! Not a good impression for a 3hp saw. Then I thought, what could it be? It seems that the arbor nut is on the right side of the blade where my old saw it was on the left. For some reason this led me to put the blade in backwards (I don’t know why but it ...

Sawstop: Assembled today

04-08-2017 12:33 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

This isn’t a review, just a few observations. Okay, I just came in from the shop after about six hours of assembly. I picked up a new Sawstop 3hp 36” cabinet saw today. I’ve been ready for it for awhile having done the 220 wiring and dust collection extension to it. My nephew came and assisted in sliding it out of the truck and up the short stairs into the shop. I can’t imagine doing that part myself. By picking it up at Woodcraft I saved $250 in shipping, and t...

Upgraded Shutoff Switch on SawStop

03-24-2017 11:20 PM by Garth | 3 comments »

I just upgraded my 1960’s table saw to a SawStop. I have only made a few cuts with it; however, I realized I really missed something on my old table saw. I did a rip cut and was standing off to the right of the blade and held the board down. I then had to reach way over the far left end of the saw to turn it off. On my old saw, I had placed a large shutoff in the center, where I could easily shut if off with my knee. I got used to turning off the saw with my knee and could keep my ...
