Workshop Upgrades #2: Ridgid 4511 table saw fence upgrade

11-12-2010 05:57 AM by jcwalleye | 3 comments »

Since opening the door into the new shop I’ve been without a router table as my old one was built into a bench anchored to the wall that was cut through. I needed to get that replaced and have always liked the idea of building a router table into a table saw wing. So I made plans to upgrade my Ridgid 4511 granite top table saw. The first thing was to upgrade the rails and fence. The Ridgid fence has a few limitations, but actually works pretty well once its adjusted properly. I’ve been...

Out with the old, in with the new!

11-12-2010 04:52 AM by nobuckle | 0 comments »

Table saw tune up is something that no matter what seems to take me forever. I spent probably four hours making the various adjustments neccessary to make accurate cuts. Granted the bulk of that was removing my TS fence rail in order to reposition it a little (I only raised it 1/8”). When I originally put the fence rail on it was too low. This caused my fence to bind and it really became a pain. So off it came so I could elongate the mounting holes. I’m pleased with the resu...

SawStop Cures the Idiot!!

11-11-2010 03:51 AM by DrAllred | 15 comments »

Well, I love the SawStop Table Saw, Technology is just absolutely great. So this is the story, and I am still able to type with all of my fingers, but one is a bit painful to do so. I was in the shop, working on some small projects that I have been toying with and making jigs to create them in an easier way than just brute force. I had just finished recovering a lot of 1.5” plywood from a pallet I got from work. In doing so I had to use the riving knife on the table saw as the gu...

Not what was planned but more than expected

11-10-2010 11:42 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

If you’ve been following this blog at all you’ll know that I’ve been working on adding a router table top to my table saw. Many of you have provided very helpful insight. Well, things have take a serious turn for the better. What started out as a just a router table top has turned into an outfeed table as well. I was seeking the advice of a friend the other day and the next thing I know we’re in his shop totally revamping my original ideas. The only problem is tha...

Mitre guage slot / Router table insert size

11-08-2010 06:17 AM by nobuckle | 1 comment »

Over the past few days I’ve been working on adding a router table to my tablesaw. Things have been coming along fairly well. I’ve been able to receive alot of wonder help from various LJ subscribers for which I am very thankful. I now have some other decisions to make and I need your help. Decision 1. What size should I make the router insert plate? Most I’ve seen are about 9” x 12”. One author said to make the insert plate as small as possible without m...

Recycling Cabinet

11-08-2010 05:47 AM by Dave S | 2 comments »

Ok, so first post—— I’ve just finished building what could (charitably) be called my third project. Have yet to finish it. The impetus for this is a need for somewhere to keep recycling (bottles, cans, etc) in our new house. We have entirely renovated our kitchen recently, so this is one of the final pieces of that project. It’s pine from local HD. Held together with pocket holes—no fancy joinery here. Cutting was all done on my (new!) table saw, which ...

Learning the hard way (revisited)

11-08-2010 02:41 AM by nobuckle | 3 comments »

I haven’t done much today. The only thing I did was to reglue the piece I cut off yesterday back on to the router table top. About 3:00 AM EST I realized that I cut off to much and didn’t leave enough material for the mitre guage slot. It didn’t turn out to bad but it irritates me that I didn’t think of this before I made the cut. Oh well. What’s more is that I stained my table saw surface with glue that bled though the news papaer that I had under my glue u...

What I have learned

11-07-2010 04:20 PM by mrg | 2 comments »

I few days ago I started to make a cutting board. While cutting the materials for said cutting board I had found that while cross cutting my pieces that they would cut fine and then scrape the back of the blade. Check blade to miter and exactly the same front and back. OK change my reference point for bottom and side against my incra miter gauge. Ok cuts a straight cut. Wait not so fast. Readjust miter gauge, get rid of play in miter slot, resquare the fence to tab and off to the races. Gl...

So far so good

11-07-2010 03:09 AM by nobuckle | 0 comments »

Had a pretty good day today. I finally decided to stop for the day, seeing that i’ve been up since 5:30 AM EST. I was able to obtain the angle aluminum that is required from a friend of mine. It’s good to have friends that are willing to donate to your cause. On the way back from my friends house I stopped by my local Woodcraft store to pick up the t-track for the mitre slot and was pleasantly surprised to find Scott Phillips from the American Woodshop there. He was there to ...

Making Progress ( I think!)

11-06-2010 05:14 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

I was up before dawn this morning. 5:30 AM EST is too early in the morning to wake up with an unfinished project on your mind. You’ve probably been there too. Anyway, I got out to the shop about 7:30 or so and decided to finish attaching my left-hand table saw extension to the right side of the saw. The cast iron extension did not have any mounting holes drilled into on the left side so I had to take some time to lay them out and drill them. I wasn’t able to use my drill pres...
