More tools in the shop #1: New Larger Table Saw (Delta unisaw)

02-20-2018 08:15 PM by Plasmon360 | 3 comments »

This is my first time on lumberjocks and am new to woodworking. I converted my 2 car garage to a wood shop with basic woodworking power tools (bandsaw, planer, jointer, table saw, router and sander) that will help me with woodworking. I was not confident that I my continue woodworking as hobby so I never paid more than 150 dollars for a single used tool. Have been lucky so far in finding good deals. Among them is a Bt3000 Ryobi table saw that was given to me by someone for free who inherit...

Steel Rule on Saw and Tape Measure Not Matching

02-16-2018 12:46 AM by IantheTinker | 10 comments »

Hello all, I added a steel rule to my table saw fence rail today and noticed that it doesn’t match up with my tape measure. When I have it set to 32” both match. However, the closer I get to “0”, the greater the difference becomes. I first noticed when I made a cut at 20 1/2”, but when I double checked with my tape measure it said 20 9/16”. So I shifted the indicator line to the right by 1/16”. However, now when my fence is all the way to the blade this is what my indicator line shows. ...

Table Saw Crosscut Sled

02-15-2018 03:51 AM by wrenchhead | 5 comments »

This is a must have in my shop. This essential table saw accessory will allow me to make accurate repeatable cuts on narrow work pieces and panels. I built a general use sled, fit the runners and square up the fence using the 5 cut method. I learned this method from watching the Wood Whisperer and William Ng build their crosscut sleds. Check out their videos for a more detailed explanation of the fence squaring process. Thanks for watching! https://youtu.be/dIQ4_vhq5NU

Shop Projects, how “Nice” should they be?

02-10-2018 05:56 AM by IantheTinker | 26 comments »

I am building an outfeed table for my table Saw, just a short one to extend over the outboard motor. Then I will hinge a folding table onto the end of the short one. I am doing this to save on dedicated space while allowing options for assembling s9me larger upcoming projects. My only issue is that I keep gett8ng hung up on how nice these things need to look. I see the guys on the YouTubes making these really nice outfeed table with melamine surfaces and oak trim and whatnot. I am on a seriou...

Delta T3 Table Saw Fence

02-06-2018 01:00 AM by IantheTinker | 12 comments »

This is my new T3, freshly installed today after drilling a couple holes in my cast iron top. I did use some existing holes, and therefore the fence center does not line up with my saw blade, which in turn renders the tape useless. I had planned on shifting the tape, but soon after installation I realized it wasn’t a taped on rule, but some sort of paint or powder coating. I like the extra rip capacity I have with the current installation (31 3/4”), and the left side does not block as much of...

Delivery Frustrations!

02-01-2018 01:08 AM by IantheTinker | 5 comments »

I placed an order with Home Depot for the Delta T3 table saw fence on January 17th. I was told estimated delivery was the 26th, then I was told that it would be by the 31st. However, I just saw that they have switched it to “by Feb. 5th”. I also noticed that there are two departure scans from two different places, one from Illinois on the 24th and one from California on the 29th, so there are apparently two separate pieces for the delivery. I am just frustrated that they switch around the ...

Table Saw Sled with small parts hold-down

01-26-2018 02:13 PM by CampD | 3 comments »

I’ve finally, I say finally utilized my YouTube channel. I’ve been taking Vid’s and pic’s of my projects for years but never really took the time to learn to edit and produce a worthy video. I tried to get my Electrical Engineer millennial Son whose extremely versed in this process to help the old man out, but, some of you may know how this goes. You see, I’d much rather be in the shop than take the time to learn a new program or even doing office work (like typi...

Shop Projects #2: Table Saw Miter Sled

10-20-2017 05:42 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

After having made my 1st table saw sled, I knew I had to have a miter sled as well. A few weeks ago I really found myself at a loss when I needed to make some accurate 45-degree angles for the clock I was making for my wife. I had previously watched a number of videos on this subject and found a method that looked like it would suit my needs and available materials. Here is a pretty good picture of the sled I cannot tell you just how happy I am with this sled! if you take a few ...

Cutting Thin Strips on the Table Saw — My Method

10-18-2017 08:00 PM by Rich | 19 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 ...
