Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

1744 days ago by dfarr | 13 comments »

I’ve always struggled with the cheap blade adjustment cranks (pictured right) on my 70s vintage table saw. I found these cast iron handwheels (H3189 – Cast Iron Handwheel – 6”) and chromed handles (H3205 – 4” x 3/8”-16) on the Grizzly web site. The handwheels were only $8.50 and the handles were $2.95. This was a great deal compared to other places I’ve looked at similar handwheels. The wheels come with a small center hole that I had to bore ou...

Micro Jig SteelPro Splitter - for 1/8" Kerf Blades

Micro Jig SteelPro Splitter - for 1/8" Kerf Blades

1619 days ago by PetVet | 17 comments »

You can purchase this product from Incra for about $35. I was interested in getting a splitter that I would use, as my rip guard/splitter was a pain to install every time I wanted to rip something.It comes as a kit, with an installation jig, and several splitters of various widths. The instruction sheet was fairly easy to follow. You need a couple pieces of 1/2 inch stock, one for the jig to attach to, and one as a test piece. They have you drill the holes in your saw insert with the prov...

Finesse Table Saw Alignment with PALS

Finesse Table Saw Alignment with PALS

1497 days ago by Jack Barnhill | 11 comments »

The “Contractor Saw Precision Alignment & Locking System” (PALS™) from IN-LINE INDUSTRIES is just that, an alignment upgrade for a contractors table saw. It provides a significantly easier and more precise way of aligning the table saw blade to the miter slot than the manufacturer’s suggested method of pounding on or prying on the trunnion. PALS consists of 2 each threaded studs, flat washers, nuts, lock nuts, L-brackets with adjustment screws and lock nuts, and 1 Al...

120 Teeth that make me smile!

I bought this “Oshlun 8 dado stack after watching it on Amazon for more than a year. Usually I’m not really cheap but I knew the price would drop eventually. I got it for $55.93 in 04/10 with free shipping and no tax. That’s a lot of C4 carbide for the price. I have two Forrest WWII blades and used to have a Freud 6” dado stack for a contractor saw. This blade set is awesome for the money. This blade stack will give very small “bat wings” in the bot...

I have a Craftsman 10” contractors table saw that I bought new about 6 years ago for just over $500. I am a hobbyist woodworker and the saw suits my needs. Recently the saw developed a really bad vibration and loud rattle. I took a look at everything using a dial indicator and everything checked out. There was favorable review in Wood magazine a few years ago regarding this product so I thought I would give it a try. I wanted the pulleys and link belt which was $50 shipped. They told me...

Walnut Acres Woodworking Blade Guard for the BORK Riving Knife

Walnut Acres Woodworking Blade Guard for the BORK Riving Knife

1331 days ago by knotscott | 12 comments »

A few weeks ago I added this blade guard to my Shop Fox W1677. Even though I’m aware of the risks, I’m admittedly one of those who finds most stock blades guards to be cumbersome and even somewhat more dangerous because they severely obscure my view of the cut. (I realize that viewing the cut isn’t necessary, but I’m much more comfortable when I can see it) However I am a strong advocate for using a good splitter or riving knife, and have had the BORK riving knife on...

Overhead Dust Collection for the Tablesaw

Overhead Dust Collection for the Tablesaw

1305 days ago by ChunkyC | 1 comment »

I ordered the Dust Collecting Blade Cover (DCBC) sold by Bob Ross from The BORK Store. I think this is a fairly new product from Bob as he literally designed it to my specifications. His original design called for a 2-1/4” hose but that size of hose is hard to connect to a fixed dust collector. I asked him if he could make it to fit 2-1/2” hose and that I was planning on mounting it to 2” sch40 PVC pipe. One other thing that Bob did for me was to make the arms a little l...

now, i’m by no means am I a professional but the results on this thing i think is exceptional. very little sanding if any at all , quick and easy plugs changes, and the ease of use on the table makes it a winner. first off i only have a portable table saw but i tell ya brothers the saw never bogged down at all when i was feeding mahogany,oak or walnut through as i was making some profiles—just pure experimentation by the way. the plugs are not cheap but they work very well̵...

SawStop Dust Collection Blade Guard & Over Arm Dust Collection

SawStop Dust Collection Blade Guard & Over Arm Dust Collection

1288 days ago by Darell | 19 comments »

Received this dust collection system for Christmas. Goes to show that momma pays attention when I send her hints. LOL! Anyway, installation is very easy and straight forward. The biggest issue, at least for the Contractor Saw is that the splitter & riving knife are slightly thicker with this upgrade. The old splitter/riving knife being .079 and the new one .090. This means you will need to readjust the riving knife lockdown clamp slightly so there isn’t to much pressure on the...

Cross cut sled

Cross cut sled

918 days ago by richgreer | 28 comments »

I’d always thought of a cross cut sled as a “nice to have – but not essential”. Then Rockler had a sale on this item ($99) and I said “why not”. This is a tool that raises the buy versus build question. I could probably have made a sled as nice as this one, but I am sure I would have spent at least $50 in materials and several hours of labor and I decided, in this case, to buy instead of build. I am very impressed by the overall quality of the ma...
