In this episode I install the splitter make any adjustment to the table
and make sure that the motor works good. The saw in this video is a
skil 15 amp benchtop tablesaw but lining up the blade to the table is
standard for all tablesaws.

I didn’t see any adjusments or checking of the saw for square to the miter gauge or actually checking the blade to the fence? I saw the combo square you used to check but what if you have to make adjustments? Is it possible on that saw? Man I wish I had tons of money to give you the money to buy a better saw. I love watching your videos. Your a really smart guy. You know all the right things to say. You have the curse most new woodworkers have. No money. If we could start out at the top we’d have a much better time with it. You ought to work with hardwoods more. You’d find your techniques work much better with say oak, rather than using pine for everything. It’s cheap… but very hard to work. At least if you want it to look nice. Just don’t buy from home depot or lowes. You can find it much cheaper at a local lumber yard. I got one near me that sells red oak, 3 sides finished for 1.75 a board foot. I believe this is the most populous local hardwood. Anyways. Good luck. And if you don’t have one yet i suspect your next purchase will be a jointer.

I cannot help it but, this was one funny video. I have to agree with Skywalker01 that I did not see any adjustments being made. You are young with a lot of ambition and will and it would take a lot of time to creat such a video. You need to stand by the table saw at all time during your demonstration. I hope this comment will help you in your next video.

yea well I did make some adjustment but it was hot and I forgot to turn the camera on so basically I was talking to my self for 20 minutes. lol but right now I am working on an oak project right now I cant say what it is because I am entering it in the saw dust chronicles build challenge. I will be posting those videos in about 3 weeks.
