Totally set up R4512 cast iron table saw. Lee valley brand router table insert 05J25.01 router is a BOSCH 1619 EVS which is a beast. Outfeed table out of three door hinges and a piece of planed to thickness 2×4 and 5/8 birch MDF. Recycled front fence from old crosscut sled. Maple with a T-slot extrusion. NOTES:1) If you tighten the blade lift handle with the center nob the blade misalignment goes away! I figured mine was good as I ALWAYS tighten mine (Prevent lifting with a ...
Just thought I’d share the love over here! I’m running a giveaway for a GRR-RIPPER GR100. The giveaway is restricted to US and Canada. You can enter on my blog at http://wp.me/p4ME6k-lV or on my facebook page at http://is.gd/L8Nw8n Good luck y’all!
I was recently asked about the jigs I use on my Skil table saw, so I thought I’d add this blog entry about the ones I’ve built and use. [Above and below] First up is my crosscut sled. This is the first jig I built for my table saw. It’s down and dirty with no frills added, no hold down t-tracks or anything. If I need a stop block I just clamp it to the back of the jig. The red strip on either side of the blade is a ‘replaceable’ strip I put in after the f...
So this blog is being started as a journey for me. That and the original thread is pretty big. Hutch and TeenAngel have done a fantastic job, but I would like to keep my specifics somewhere I can find them. And possibly give some folks with the same/similar saw more pictures since I know I am quite visual when working with this kind of stuff. Anyway, to get started the original blog is here: http://lumberjocks.com/Hutch/blog/2740. I’ll have to edit this post later with exactly the...
The Delta 36-725 table saw is a great tool designed and priced for the amateur woodworker and suitable for a professional shop where a less powerful motor is acceptable. I call saws like this Cadillac’s for Harry Homeowner. The two most often asked questions about the Delta 36-725 table saw are the best blades to use and how to properly align the blade. Understand that I am certainly not a woodworking expert nor an authority on table saws or blades. I am a retired engineer and have been an am...

These are the two photos I was trying to find in the photos I mentioned in my previous post. I could have saved these for safety week. As I said these photos were usually taken for a reason. You can see in the lower photo that the two men are doing something that looks inherently dangerous, probably demonstrating what happened. The guy on the right is missing his ring finger!
One of my other hobbies is local railroad history. During the research for my book I was given access to thousands of images from glass plate negatives. Most of these photos were taken for a reason other than inventory of the railroad, usually because of a mishap. Once in a while I have to go back and refer to them. I saw these two and thought others might appreciate seeing an old tool. Railroads typically had workshops for maintenance of equipment, buildings, etc. I don’t know wh...
I’ll post some introductory reviews in the next couple days, but for now, just wanted to “show off” the latest additions to my “workshop” (a term I still use in the loosest possible sense as I’m still a Downtown-dweller with but a large patio from which to work). Last weekend, I jumped on a HD deal of the day that offered an 18V Ridgid drill/driver and impact driver kit, along with two batteries for $149. After placing the order, though, I saw the 12V Ri...
Here’s a tablesaw that is listed for sale on University of Wisconsin surplus. Does anyone have any thoughts about how old? Or do you think it might be someone’s homemade tool? We thought it looked rather interesting, but unsafe.
