Table Saw Saga #1: Intro and Saw Arrivial

36 days ago by NiteWalker | 4 comments »

So after about 11 years, I’m finally getting a (what I consider at least) decent table saw. This will be #5 for me, and hopefully the last for a long while. #1 was a cheap tradesman I paid $99 for. #2 was a delta TS350. That was a good saw (direct drive induction motor) but the fence and table were small. #3 was a delta 36-980. Good saw; served me well but I wanted to get a cabinet saw. #4 was a bosch 4100. Not a bad saw, but not great either IMHO. My living condition prevents me fro...

Tool thoughts #56: finally warm enough to get something done... & #facepalm moments

43 days ago by NedB | 3 comments »

pics to follow… my phone died and I’m still in the middle of things (came in to warm it up & get a charger cable). I’m finally getting to hanging my insulation out in the shop today. we’ve got temps in the 40’s finally… and while that’s not balmy to some, it is good enough for me. I picked up some lumbah for the project last week… but the thermometer kept reading just under 30°. That meant that IN the shop it would be about 20°. Today...

SawStop or not? #2: Do you really want to trust your fingers to electronics that might fail?

47 days ago by Rob | 18 comments »

One of the arguments I’ve seen is about whether people should really trust the electronics. For better or worse, that ship has already sailed. We already know that we put our lives on the line every time we hop in a car. Although our safety is largely dependent on our own actions as drivers and the actions of other people, modern safety systems such as anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control improve your chances of avoiding or surviving an accident. In the ideal situation,...

SawStop or not? #1: Intro

47 days ago by Rob | 2 comments »

There are a lot of debates swirling around the Internet when it comes to SawStop. You’ve got technology, political lobbying, lawsuits, and violence. Then there’s the limited liability entity—is the founder a greedy overlord, benevolent finger savior, or something in between? In the hands of the right script writer, you could have a pretty intense TV drama or movie. But we don’t have script writers here, so instead we have endless debate. Ughh…. I myself hav...

Tablesaw Choice #1: A saw that's right for me

49 days ago by Grumpymike | 9 comments »

It’s time to upgrade my old Ridgid TS2424 contractor style table saw to a new cabinet saw. In this upgrade there A LOT of choices to be made. I have investigated, among others the Baileigh, Jet, Grizzly, Powermatic, Delta, Shop Fox Sawstop, and General. Each has their claim to fame and features that are unique to the brand. But before deciding which shiny new saw is best suited for me, there are things to consider. I know that I want a better fence system and a riving knife and a few o...

Vintage Delta Milwaukee Combo Table Saw and Jointer Rebuild #3: Getting things put together

52 days ago by OregonWoodRat | 6 comments »

I was going to post this sooner but I strained my back on Friday working on this. I mounted the table saw and motor and tried it out. It sounds good and cuts very well. When I put the top on it was a little difficult getting the blade aligned with the miter slot, but in the end I got it within half a thousandth. The rip fence was much easier to align. Just loosen the two bolts on the top and move where you need it. The micro adjust works great. Since my shop is so small I really needed th...

The "I'm Not Worthy" Project Log #7: Cross Cut Sled - Winging It!!!

59 days ago by DIYaholic | 22 comments »

Besides motivation, energy and time….I need a cross cut sled. I’ve checked out most of the various sleds and “Super” sleds here on LJs, from the basic to the multifunction/multipurpose sleds. All these possibilities led to a paralysis by analysis situation. Since I was worried about how accurate my “first” sled would be, I decided not to over complicate things by making a “super sled”. I figured why put so much effort into something I wasn...

Woodshop Build #1: Table Saw

60 days ago by VarnellWoodworks | 5 comments »

Just like many woodworkers out there, I am obsessed with my tools. They perform a function in my shop but they are more than just functional. They provide a sense of pride and aesthetic beauty that only my fellow woodworkers can understand. We spend countless hours mulling over specs. reviews, online videos, pricing, and countless other factors to find that perfect addition to the shop. When we find that perfect hand tool or piece of machinery, we obsess over fine tuning, adding accessori...
