Hi, I did a video about the dust collection abilities of the Makita 2704 table saw. Maybe it helps someone :) Here is the link: Makita table saw - Dust collection improvement and review Greetings Daniel

This weekend was consumed primarily with installing a dog door and a ceiling/lighting in the breakfast nook off the kitchen of the farmhouse. I did get a couple of hours to steal away to the shop though. “Last picture first” isn’t that what all the cool kids are doing these days? The first order of business was to re-cut the ribs I tried to make on the router table. I used the table saw but I’ve never been very good at (accurate) with a miter gauge nor am I c...
View on YouTube Try this link if video doesn't work I did a video last week about ripping wood that has tension in it. I said that my preferred way to handle it is to walk away from the table saw and use a band saw. WELL! I got a LOT of feedback and suggestions about other ways to deal with that. So, I decided that I would actually test a few of these methods. Since I made this video I got an additional suggestion and that is to use a dado blade, but I haven’t tested that ...
Today I purchased the Vega Pro 50 fence system. I had some Amazon Points saved up and decided this was the first major upgrade I wanted to do in regards to the workshop. I did a lot of research and reading on different fence options. This fit the budget and did not require much tweaking for install. I was looking at the VSC fence and making the rails but I just didn’t want to fuss with all that. I am more focused on building a safe and functional table saw workstation with ample capacit...
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 ...
View on YouTube Recently I was ripping a piece of mahogany on my table saw and there was so much tension in the board that I couldn’t complete the cut. In fact, it was binding so tightly on the blade that I had to work to get the board off of the saw. I haven’t experienced this kind of wood tension very often. What is your favorite way to deal with this kind of problem? Thanks,Charlie
After reading about other LJs Craftsman 113 saw rebuild I decided that it was time to clean mine up. I rescued it about 25 years ago from an individual who was using it to cut log slabs for firewood. It had been in his barn for several years. I cleaned it up then and used it in my wood shop with it working just fine. It came with me when we moved about 12 years ago. Job responsibilities got in the way of my woodworking and it sat in my garage/shop collecting dust. It did make a great shelf. U...
I’ve created a tutorial for converting the extension table on a SawStop table saw (or any table saw with a wooden extension table) into a router table. Check it out here:http://trentdavis.net/2017/01/27/table-saw-enhancement-converting-extension-table-into-router-table/
I’ve created a tutorial for attaching an additional cast-iron wing to a SawStop table saw Check it out here:http://trentdavis.net/2017/01/27/table-saw-enhancement-attaching-extra-cast-iron-extension-wing/
