Delta Heavy Duty Precision Miter Guage 36-946

Delta Heavy Duty Precision Miter Guage 36-946

06-10-2008 12:15 AM by stanley2 | 16 comments »

I have only seen this miter guage on ebay – never in a store nor in a Delta catalogue. When you search the product number on the Delta website it only comes up as an accessory to their hybrid tablesaw. The ebayer who lists it sells one a week and I lowballed it for 2 years before I finally got it for $80, including shipping. In the last two weeks they have sold for less than my $50. What an improvement for my vintage unisaw! The design is excellent including an eccentric lock scr...

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

06-27-2008 05:46 AM by Brad_Nailor | 16 comments »

I know allot of you have made your own version of a thin strip ripping jig. I fiddled with making one and was in too much of a hurry to get my project going. I looked at this one online and liked the design and it was only $19.99 with free shipping. As usual Rockler shipped it out right away, and it was on my doorstep 4 days after I ordered it. They also accept Paypal now which is really convenient.It comes with simple instructions on the back of the box. The whole device is made out of pheno...

Leecraft Phenolic Insert GE-3

Leecraft Phenolic Insert GE-3

05-25-2009 04:27 PM by Chris | 16 comments »

Purchased this insert from Woodcraft in Jacksonville for a couple of reasons; first and foremost it was cost effective. Secondly, I have had little luck making my own from plywood or other such materials due to the fact that I can’t tweak the height (no leveling screws). The first pic shows the insert alongside the factory supplied insert from General. There is a screw on one end and one side to adjust the lateral fit and small hex screws at the four “corners” to adjust t...

Way Better Than Home Made Inserts

Way Better Than Home Made Inserts

12-06-2009 08:10 PM by Brad_Nailor | 16 comments »

I was going to do the usual cutting and fitting and fussing with making myself some ZCIs’ for my new Unisaw. Then I thought about exploring the world of commercially made inserts. there are allot to choose from. I was going to go with a system by Lee Valley/Veratris. It has very cool interchangeable plates and a single Alum. insert. But it was a little more than I wanted to pay ($79.00) for an insert. So I was at Woodcraft yesterday buying wheels, and I saw the Leecraft. It seemed reall...

Wixey Saw Fence Digital Readout

Wixey Saw Fence Digital Readout

I was super excited when I got this at Rockler a couple weeks ago. They had a great sale spend $100 get $30 off and I thought this would be the perfect little add on to my newly restore G1023. So today I finally decided to put this slick little sucker onto my TS. Instructions are not what I like but they are easy enough to figure out. I drilled hold in my tubes got the rails of the DRO connected. Then went to attach the hangers to the DRO Rails and, well nothing as in it wouldn’t tig...

Needs More Mag

Needs More Mag

I have been interested in these magnetic featherboards since they first came out. Recently I saw Ridgid came out with their version so I gave it a try. The idea is masterful. The execution is not. Although the fingers are supple, with just the right amount of pressure, the featherboard will not hold its position well. It would be hard to pull the featherboard straight up from a cast iron surface, however it slides too easily. One of the main reasons for having a featherboard on the tabl...

Couldn't figure out how to make them so I bought them

Couldn't figure out how to make them so I bought them

06-19-2012 02:17 AM by lumberjoe | 16 comments »

Since the Ridgid R5412 is such a popular saw, I figured I would review these. They are available everywhere online – woodcraft, Amazon, rockler, etc. Woodcraft has them in the store as well. Because of the design of this saw’s throat insert, it’s really hard to make your own. After seeing how these are crafted, I don’t think I could safely make one. LikesBoth of these are very well made. The instructions included are clear, and I don’t think they are outrageo...

1/2'' Power Twist Plus Link V-Belt

1/2'' Power Twist Plus Link V-Belt

07-21-2012 07:45 PM by David White | 16 comments »

Put this link belt onto my table saw this morning – it took all of 5 minutes – and am amazed at the difference it made. The saw is now almost totally vibration free and is much quieter too. If your saw vibrates, you need this belt.

Infinity Zero Clearance Throat Plate and insert for sawstop table saw

Infinity Zero Clearance Throat Plate and insert for sawstop table saw

12-15-2012 03:10 AM by mbs | 16 comments »

The sawstop zero clearance insert doesn’t have enough support towards the back of the blade therefore the insert dips down below the top of the table. When cutting narrow wood, the leading edge of the wood catches on the top of the table which isn’t a safe situation to be in.. I recently heard about the Infinity billet insert and ordered it the same day. I don’t have any relationship with Infinity. The insert is machined out of aluminum and has a very nice anodized ...

Review of the Woodcraft Anti Kickback Safety Rollers

Review of the Woodcraft Anti Kickback Safety Rollers

02-11-2014 01:33 PM by steve_in_ohio | 16 comments »

I bought these rollers a couple of days ago because my table saw is old and it doesn’t have a riving knife and I don’t like to use the blade guard. Also I had problems when running long boards thru the table saw that they would try to move away from the fence, so I bought these rollers. I mounted these on my fence with a t-track instead of the rail that it is sold for these. After some simple assembly I started using these and I love them. They hold the wood down to the table and ...
