Shop Fox Table Saw Fence gets good marks.

05-11-2009 08:44 AM by mart | 15 comments »

A friend flew down to the lower 48 to pick up a truck he bought and was going to be going through Washington on the way back to Alaska. I took advantage of the opportunity to have him swing by the Grizzly warehouse to pick up some equipment for me. In addition to an eight inch jointer which I will preview later, I had him pickup the Shop Fox Classic Fence System with Standard Rails. I finally got around to installing it yesterday and it couldn’t have been easier. It went on my old Grizz...

Nice going Pal

Nice going Pal

05-23-2009 04:03 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 15 comments »

If you have a contractor TS and extra 20 dollars burning hole in your pocket then maybe you should splurge on one of these before the gas goes back up to 4 a gallon.And that’s just what I did today. I didn’t need them or have to have them to align the 3660. I had already got it to 0.001. But I’ve never been fond of contractor saw trunnions. When I finally got my saw last year,(Table saws scare the heck out of me) it took slight modifications to get my saw to register 0.001. And during that ti...

Mule Cabinetmaker Accusquare Rip Fence

Mule Cabinetmaker Accusquare Rip Fence

09-28-2009 03:57 AM by jeffreythree | 15 comments »

All of the sizes are the same other than the rail lengths. I opted for the 25” one because my Delta Homecraft TS is pretty small. It came with only a few token wads of newdpaper to protect it, and the main knob was broken because of it. This one uses a rear rail, which I like and have not mounted yet. It also works well so far without the rear rail attached. The first pic shows what it came with: a bag of hardware, a rear rail, the fence, the front rail, and no instructions. You c...

Tenryu Gold Medal Dado Not Exactly What I Had Hoped For.

Tenryu Gold Medal Dado Not Exactly What I Had Hoped For.

10-20-2009 05:48 PM by Russ Anderson | 15 comments »

This is a brief review of the Tenryu GMD. First Impression: The blades look of extremely high quality with thick bodies. Box: I personally don’t like the wood box because you have to lift out all of the chippers in order to get to the outer blades. Cut Quality: The side blades are excellent in MDF, and Plywood core veneers, as well as melamine. The bottom of the dado is the flattest, smoothest that I have seen. I’ve owned two previous dado sets, one from Systi-Matic, and ...

Using the Delta T-2 to replace the Ridgid 4511 fence

Using the Delta T-2 to replace the Ridgid 4511 fence

03-26-2012 01:55 AM by MoshupTrail | 15 comments »

A few weeks ago I started a forum topic about fixing the lame fence system that came with the Ridgid 4511 Granite top table saw. The problem with the Ridgid’s fence is that the guide tube is split and joined in the middle with a cheap plastic part. The plastic part forces one of the tubes to be slightly offset from the other making it impossible to adjust the fence angle. When the fence slides from one tube to the other the angle will change slightly. Initially I was thinking to...

I like I-Box

I like I-Box

01-03-2014 06:46 PM by Kerry Drake | 15 comments »

Got the I-Box for Christmas and finished setting it up yesterday. The pictures show my very first test pieces using a 3/8 inch dado stack. Once you understand what’s going on with the jig, it is very easy to use and it gave me near perfect results on my very first test. Set up takes about 15 minutes out of the box, but it comes with a very good set of instructions and a DVD showing the entire process from beginning to end. For me, now, the hardest part about making really good bo...

Heavenly Performance

Heavenly Performance

11-17-2013 07:24 PM by maplerock | 15 comments »

I have been struggling with my table saw. It was not a joy to use. Although it is a dream of a saw (unisaw 36-953), the performance was lacking. The effort I needed to push boards through was far more than should be necessary. I had my blades sharpened (Freud Diablo and another carbide tipped blade) and had no noticeable improvement. I bought a new combination Orion blade. It was better, but not good enough. I noticed the blade and table were a little out of alignment. After fixing ...

Smartmiter miter gauge sled

Smartmiter miter gauge sled

05-09-2008 09:08 PM by OttawaP | 14 comments »

I’ve been in the market for a new miter gauge . I’ve sold my previous Kreg due to it’s short length and light structure. While it was exceptionally accurate, I just found the crosscut length too short and was always afraid if I ever dropped it would be bent. I considered the Jessum, Accumiter, and Osbourne as the top contenders until I found the Smart Miter. The Jessum I found a little fiddly with the two pin set up and there did seem to be some issues with this system from what I’ve read on...

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

07-29-2008 05:46 AM by Tim Dorcas | 14 comments »

In the past one of the things I hated to was rip thin pieces of wood. Typically this is done to create keys for mitered joints. Last December I was going to build a one of the many jigs that you can find online when Rockler came out with their Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig. For $20 I thought, “Why not?” It arrived about three weeks later (They were sold old initially and everything takes longer in Canada.) and I was surprised at the quality of it’s construction. If anything the fit ...

Rockler Thin Rip Table Saw Jig

Rockler Thin Rip Table Saw Jig

09-10-2011 10:59 AM by David Grimes | 14 comments »

This is a Rockler product that is well made and does exactly what it says it will do. It’s about $20 if you get it at regular price. I have used it on two occasions to rip several 1/8” strips to face the front of birch plywood wall shelves. Tonight the strips were from a drop of Poplar that otherwise would have been used as a bunch of stirring sticks on its way to the burn pile. I got three 1/8” x 96” pieces from the 3/4” x 5/8” x 96” I started ...
