SawStop zero clearance throat plate with changeable inserts

SawStop zero clearance throat plate with changeable inserts

10-04-2014 10:08 AM by Tim_H | 9 comments »

So I finally bit the bullet and purchased a SawStop table saw. After doing so I searched to find a zero clearance plate. Of course SawStop offers zero clearance plates at about $40 ea but I found this one from Infinity Tools that cost $100 but offers changeable inserts that are low cost so I just had to buy one plate and several “inserts” to accommodate the many different blades and angles that I end up using. Purchasing an entire new plate for each blade and each angle of each bl...

One of the best ideas

One of the best ideas

10-21-2014 02:19 AM by ic3ss | 9 comments »

I’ve been looking at these for about a year and finally pulled the trigger last week. I had a kickback incident that smashed a couple of fingers last year and since then I’ve had my mind on ways to make my old Unisaw safer. This has got to be one of the best safety devices for the woodshop in many years. What it does is so basic its a wonder it has only recently been made commercially. It’s an expensive device to be sure, at $80. For me it took a few smashed fingers to ge...

MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 Contractor saw

MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 Contractor saw

01-23-2008 02:02 AM by pastor_shane | 8 comments »

Now I know what some of you may be thinking. Putting a JessEm MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 is well, kinda like putting a bored out 350 engine into a Chevy Citation. But with the mastRSlide, I have been able to achieve very accurate and just as importantly consistent results with this set-up. While someday I hope to be able to afford a hybrid or full-blown cabinet saw, the mastRSlide has allowed me to take on projects that I otherwise would never have dared attempt on the Bosch 4000 alone. ...

Incra V27 Basic Miter Gauge

The V27 is Incra’s entry level basic gauge retailing at about $60 and is constructed primarily of sturdy steel with some well placed nylon trim pieces. The bottom of the steel protractor head glides on a nylon pad that rides along the table surface. The Incra has a “GlideLOCK” miter bar that consists of 4 expandable nylon adjustment spacers in the bar to be perfectly taylor fitted to the standard 3/4”x3/8” miter slot on your saw. There is a removable t-clip on th...

Great for uneven floors

Great for uneven floors

10-14-2009 06:39 AM by DannyBoy | 8 comments »

From the start, I needed to make sure that my saw would be movable. With a small shop, floor space is at a premium and it only makes things difficult to admit that my floor is not at all level and even. This system took care of both of those needs. The casters are well built and work well on the uneven floor. Plus, once you are done moving the unit, you flip it down onto it’s own feet right into your floors sweet-spot. Two bits of advice: First, you probably won’t matc...

Happy With My First Blade Purchase

Happy With My First Blade Purchase

11-16-2009 07:03 AM by Jimi_C | 8 comments »

So as promised (in Knottscott's review of the Delta 35-7657), here’s my review of its 60-tooth cousin. The night Scott reviewed that blade, I noticed Tooliday had the 60-tooth version up for $25, plus $5 S/H. I had been looking at Freud blades that were about $20-30 more, so I thought what the heck, I’ll give it a shot. I’ve been using a single 40-tooth blade for everything (came with the tablesaw I bought used of Craigslist), along with painters tape to keep the chippin...

Freud SD606 Dado set - Tradeoffs

Freud SD606 Dado set - Tradeoffs

01-07-2010 03:40 PM by richgreer | 8 comments »

This dado set is the 6 inch version of Freud’s dial-a-width model. There are several things I like about it but, as is often the case, there are trade-offs. The dial-a-width concept means that you do not need any shims. The outer cutter has a mechanism that, effectively, causes the width of that cutter to expand up to 7/64 of an inch in increments of 1/256 of an inch. Using the dial-a-width mechanism in lieu of shims is very convenient. Me and those shims never got along very well....

Rockler Table Saw Fence Micro Adjuster

Rockler Table Saw Fence Micro Adjuster

12-15-2012 06:14 PM by mbs | 8 comments »

I purchased this adjuster to make very fine adjustments on my sawstop table saw. The base is magnetic and the magnets are pretty strong. I’ve modified my review since I took another look at the device. This unit doesn’t work properly on my Sawstop because it needs to sit directly where the scale indicator sits. I looked at Rockler’s website and some people have made extensions to compensate for the interference. I’m not sure if I want to mess with it or not. ...

The Ridgid digital miter gauge

The Ridgid digital miter gauge

12-02-2012 03:05 PM by garriv777 | 8 comments »

This will be my first review posted at this site and I felt I should share my experience with this tool because someone else left a glowing review and I just had to let people know that this same tool was not at all the quality tool that I thought it was going to be. Maybe I just got a bad one or something but the following is my account of the quality of this tool: I purchased this tool online at the HD website along with a Bosch router. The packaging was fine, no damage at all and I was ...
