Cutting Thin Strips on the Table Saw — My Method

10-18-2017 08:00 PM by Rich | 17 comments »

Disclaimer: Using a table saw in this manner is inherently dangerous. No one should attempt these cuts without proper jigs and the experience to use them. There’s been some discussion lately regarding cutting thin strips on the table saw. Naturally everyone has their own way that they’re comfortable with and provides the level of accuracy they need for the task at hand. Basically there are several methods, the three most common being fence side, off fence side and a sled....

A Twist on The Wood Whisperer Crosscut Sled Slot Repair

10-17-2017 05:14 PM by Rich | 3 comments »

I needed to repair the slot on my crosscut sled (actually three of them) after aligning my table saw. The blade widened the slot enough that the zero-clearance feature of them was gone. I decided to give The Wood Whisperer's epoxy fix a try. After doing the first sled, a small parts one I wouldn’t mind re-making if this screwed up, I found that the bottom of the slot was perfect because the tape held the epoxy perfectly level, while the cleanup on the top surface (where the boards ...

1950s Craftsman Tablesaw Restoration #2: What do you think about the color?

09-22-2017 12:48 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I was planning on sandblasting the table saw parts. It would be quick and easier I believe. However, I was not able to get that done, so I went with traditional ways…..a bit of elbow grease. Check out the video and let me know what you think about the color I have chose for the saw. Don't forget to hit that subscribe button...NEW VIDEO EVERY FRIDAY!

Mongo: my first real workbench #5: Completion of the ribs and a start to the aprons

04-10-2017 02:18 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 0 comments »

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...

I Actually Tested YOUR Table Saw Suggestions! I thought is was Interesting...

03-29-2017 06:40 PM by CharlieK | 10 comments »

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 ...
