In this episode I setup the stand to my new skil tablesaw. Most people start off with one of these saws because they are about $120 and theywork ok. Putting the stand together is easy but reading the manual is a pain in the ass because it goes back in forth from english to spanish.I put a piece of cardboard between the saw and the stand to stop all the dust from going ton the floor. I have a full review of this saw on my website at

Thanks Kosta. Two things I noticed. One is that your video and sound are vastly improved. New camera? different location? Maybe you’ve got more light. Secondly, your presentation seems for the most part better prepared. You’re getting to the point better.

I have a larger contractors saw but I could see something like this for someone who wants to get right into it without breaking the bank first. Or, for someone who needs to do work offsite and needs something they can lift and carry to the job site without breaking their back.

One thing to remember.. Every time you reach for the switch. Pause a second and make sure all is secure, you’ve got your push stick, You don’t have things like loose sleeves and you know where your hands are at all times. You’re too nice a young man to start life with a missing finger. Be confident of your work but there’s nothing wrong of being afraid of a hyper spinning metal blade with carbide teeth.

I’ll be waiting for your next installment.

I am going to make one because I have had really thin pieces go down there and it just popped and shot down towards the floor

I didn’t enjoy it at all. Spent to much time flipping the box lid, rambling on and showing his back to the camera. JMO
