Kerfmaker uses

1403 days ago by tenonitis | 10 comments »

I broke down and bought one of these gadgets despite the high price since I planned to give it a lot of use. It works as advertised but I had a different application in mind than cutting half laps or kerfs. I wanted to use it for its opposite function, one not advertised, making tenons. I understand that Bridge City plans to introduce a new tool for this purpose, but I think they don’t understand that the Kerfmaker can already do this. The key is to invert your thinking and instead of u...

An Aftermarket Retrofit Riving Knife Does Exist...

An Aftermarket Retrofit Riving Knife Does Exist...

1409 days ago by knotscott | 26 comments »

The Bolt On Ripping Knife (BORK) from Bob Ross of Walnutacre Woodworking is a retrofit riving knife that fits several traditional saws that were not originally designed for a riving knife. The BORK attaches to the arbor swing arm, and rises, lowers, and tilts in unison with the blade much like a true stock riving knife does. I’ve had a BORK on my Shop Fox W1677 since August of 2008, and have been very happy with it. It’s available in full kerf or thin kerf thicknesses, and will ...

Finesse Table Saw Alignment with PALS

Finesse Table Saw Alignment with PALS

1414 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...

A great upgrade to a non-riving knife saw

A great upgrade to a non-riving knife saw

Product web page: www.leestyron.com I have wanted to order a Shark Guard from Lee for quite some time. One night this winter I went for it. At the time he said (on the webpage) the wait was about 3-4 weeks. I didn’t get a confirmation email (maybe it got filtered) and somewhere around two months later I got the shipping notice for the guard. I didn’t try to contact Lee myself so I’m not really complaining. The whole thing came in about two days from the shipping n...

The Best Mobile Base I Could Find

The Best Mobile Base I Could Find

1458 days ago by Twigger | 10 comments »

I looked everywhere on-line and elsewhere for a mobile base for my Jet ProShop table saw. This one from woodworker.com works great: heavy duty; leveling devices; easy to actuate the casters. Yes, you do have to provide the 3/4” plywood; but you get a very handy shelf under your table saw or whatever. And it’s easy to assemble. $72.99 Everything the web site says is true:Combine the Universal Mobile Base Kit with your 3/4” plywood and you can easily build a movable b...

Keeping the shop cleaner

Keeping the shop cleaner

1483 days ago by brianl | 4 comments »

In February I finally got a table saw. It’s used and fairly old, but it was free, so I can’t complain too much. It didn’t come with a stand or with any sort of dust collection mechanism. After tuning it up and running some plywood through it I was amazed at how much dust was kicked up. I decided that I needed to get a bag or something to help. I searched around and found the Keen Product's DustCutter on Amazon. Once orderded, it was shipped very quickly and arrived q...

Up-Grade  Miter Gauge

Up-Grade Miter Gauge

1505 days ago by blackcherry | 11 comments »

I recently have been up-grading some of my tool and on my short list was my table saw miter gauge. I felt that it was OK but not up to snuff with what was newer on the market. I’ve been a Incra user for many year and have never been displeased with any of there products so I started looking around and found a new Miter 1000SE on E-bay for sale below the market price. It was on one of those buy now or make and offer kinda deals so I made a offer of 20 dollars below what it lists at an...

Can't Believe I Didn't Buy It Sooner

Can't Believe I Didn't Buy It Sooner

I had considered buying the Ezee-Feed Infeed Table for quite sometime. I have noticed that I’m just not as stong as I used to be. Trying to hold a sheet of plywood up and keep it against the fence was getting to be a struggle. I was getting burn marks, uneven cuts, felt it was really hard on my blades and it was not safe. I needed something that was easy to put on and take off my saw. The Ezee-Feed Table has proven to be the answer. With the folding legs, it is easy to store when not...

New Splitter From the St. Louis WW Show

1513 days ago by John Gray | 8 comments »

I purchased this at the WW show a couple of weeks ago and it works great. I still treat the saw with all the due caution I did before the splitter installation. Use and follow all the safety precautions outlined in your saw’s manual.I’m going to post below the information provided by the company that made it’s web site. Our New MJ Splitter™ SteelPRO is constructed from a 100% polycarbonate shell and reinforced with a solid stainless steel core. Our toughest splitter eve...

milescraft feather board

milescraft feather board

1536 days ago by kosta | 9 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft fetherboard. Most people make their own feather boards but I use this feather board from milescraft and it works pretty good. The problem with the feather boards that people make is that its really hard to adjust them to different tools. This feather board is adjustable to 2 different size miter slots. You can adjust the feather board to work on most cuts. You can use this feather board on a router table, tablesaw, and a bandsaw.
