Oooops. I erased the pictures for my last Dust Blog not realizing they have to be there to support the blog. I noticed that there is a hole in the top of the blade guard. Sawdust flies out of that hole. Solution! A small 1” by 2” magnet to seal the hole. Simple but effective.
We moved to our new home in northern Illinois more than a year ago and I spent a lot of time planning the shop, drawing plan after plan, searching the net for ideas and so on.To give her credit, my wife tired of the plans (even though I told her it was half the fun) and gave me a SawStop Professional Cabinet Saw for Christmas! If you wonder why I went hog-wild with a SawStop, I’ll tell you that one of my long-standing rules, even back in my days up north was “nobody gets injured, ...

Although this project is going to be a metal working project, it is for a wood working tool. :) I ordered my Sawstop 3HP PCS a few weeks ago and it will arrive next week (4/1). I am on vacation the following week so I plan to get it assembled and tuned up. I was planning to get the mobile base for free (the promo that they are currently running) but as I was doing some thinking, I decided against it and will get the dust collection instead, for two reason...
Just read Smiiy’s account of his kick back event and was surprised to see the number of LJ’s who were surprised in one way or another by their table saw. On the other hand I have seen some surprising statistcs indicating that injuries on the table saw are pretty common.
