Making a Small Panel Saw #1: The Saw Plate

71 days ago by Mosquito | 24 comments »

I’ve wanted a small panel saw, in the 16-18” range, for a little while now. I made the decision to try making my own, and a couple of weeks ago I ordered a saw plate and hardware from Two Guys In A Garage Toolworks (www.tgiag.com).

Video: French Cleat Blade Storage Rack

159 days ago by JSB | 9 comments »

Hello everyone. After another productive Saturday in the shop I came up with this French cleat saw blade storage option. It can be modified to your dimensions and needs as always. It features two rows of blade storage with 6 partitions each. The dividers can be removed for larger blades such as 1/2” or 3/4” bandsaw blades. You could even reduce the spacing on one of them for more table saw blades. For added storage options on the outside you could use dowels, screws, or nails. ...
