Table Saw Crosscut sleds revisted: a small improvement.

06-27-2016 01:11 AM by trophyjoe | 0 comments »

So today, I needed to square a piece of plywood. I reached for my trusty TS panel-squaing jig, a la, but the wood bar was sloppy in the miter slot. Don’t ask why—I didn’t make it that way. To make matters worse, the bar was set into a groove in the jig, so making another bar was not going to help. What to do? I suppose I could have made another complete jig, but didn’t feel like it. Instead, I tried to create a shop-built adjustable bar.... HereR...

DIY Aluminum Extrusion Fence #5: Fine Tuning begins....

07-21-2015 12:01 PM by rhybeka | 1 comment »

So for the moment, this is a placeholder for a bunch of pictures I’m going to toss up here on the latest step of this process. It’s all together and as long as I can get it fine tuned, will be great. The lineal bearings slide perfectly until the 3×3 piece of extrusion is tightened down to it so I’m assuming there’s some flex in there somewhere causing this to happen. I’ve shimmed the bearings and that has done the opposite and made it not move what so ever E...

Workshop Thoughts

My table saw is a small one. I don’t think it counts as a contractor saw. If I recall correctly it’s sold as a bench-top. I have it mounted in a stand and it serves me well enough. The one shortcoming of my TS is its size. I think the widest rip I can cut is 11 3/4 inches. I’ve given thought on how to add an extension wing and have even recreated the profile of the front edge so that the fence could be used on any extension I build. But If I’m going to add a TS ex...

TS outfeed table with downdraft #1: The Nutty Professor is at it again

05-21-2013 01:24 AM by Mainiac Matt | 3 comments »

This view shows the back side of my recently refurbished TS. There are ~46” between the saw and my primary work bench. I lowered the bench to match the height of the TS @ 32-7/8” and planned to bridge the two with an outfeed table…. but I wanted to do something different with it. Since I have two 4” DC lines running back there, I figured this would be a great place for a down draft table. Here’s the preliminary design… To maximize air flo...

Workshop **Work In Progress** #6: Starting Anew - TS Calibration

08-14-2011 08:19 PM by brukilla | 6 comments »

After taking the fence and router table off, I had to get set-up for ts calibration and set-up. I also fixed an issue with the left miter slot (miter issue). I had already checked the blade 90 to the table – so that is already good to go. Prep:1. Pencil2. Superbar3. Dial Calipers (didn’t use, though)4. 36” Straight Edge5. Allen Wrenches6. Saw Blade (ATB) 7. Hammer 8. Rubber Mallet I then performed the following steps:1. Installed blade and marked a tooth pointing towar...
