Well it’s about time to get my Excavator a trailer, so the low boy is on the table.
Just cutting out some of the main parts.
I had found a wobble dado blade at a yard sale some time back but my Dewalt can’t use it so ordered a 5/8 arbor for the Shopsmith so now I can cut my dados in one pass where it used to take me forever to get er done.
Back 30 something years ago I used to use a wobble blade on my dewalt radial arm saw but from what I remember it would vibrate a little but on the Shopsmith it really ran smooth as silk but this one has more teeth so that could be the reason.
I need to make a zero clearance cover for the saw, I thought I had made some and I did but it was for the older model so will be making some covers here shortly.
I’m going off the plans a little and will have dowels down the middle instead of solid wood.
I know this isn’t much but I took quite a bit a time making sure I had the wobble blade set up right on the Shopsmith, not something you want to get wrong me thinks.
It cut smooth as butter so will feel better from now on setting it up and using it.
I sure could have used it on the tracks for the Excavator, would have saved me a day or two.
