A beautiful piece of machinery

A beautiful piece of machinery

21 days ago by adrianpglover | 8 comments »

I’m new to posting on this site. When I first got into woodworking, about 2-3 years ago, a coworker loaned me a Shopsmith Mark V from the 1970s. It worked ok for what I was doing, but the tiny table, difficulty in doing bevel cuts, and the fact that the table would lean into the blade if enough weight was put on it led me to the decision to get a different saw for myself. Don’t get me wrong, the Shopsmith is a good product for what it is. It’s a great multi-use product. ...

Tool Review, Craftsman Contractor Saw 113.298763, Made 1996. I’ve had this saw since 2002, so I figure I’ve used it enough to write a fairly balanced and accurate review. I bought the saw from a good friend who was the first owner. I paid $225 for the saw, three Craftsman blades and some push sticks.He used it primarily to remodel his basement, and he did one heck of a job. I helped him quite a bit and learned a lot. This is my second table saw. My first was a direct drive Craftsman tha...

A better saw than I thought it would be

A better saw than I thought it would be

26 days ago by bonesbr549 | 25 comments »

I will not go over the safety side of the tool nor the politics as those have been beat to death. Well I’ve been lusting for a SS since they first came out, but being out of my budget started a savings fund. My Grizzly 1023SLX had served me well but I wanted to upgrade and really like the safety feature. With the last project providing a significant bump in my $$, I bit the bullet and ordered it back in early Feb. It supposed to be delivered on a Friday and it dumped a foot of snow. ...

Delta 36-725 Contractor Table Saw

Delta 36-725 Contractor Table Saw

36 days ago by thetinman | 64 comments »

A few friends and I share our shops and the fun of woodworking. Among us we have a diversity of age, knowledge, woodworking experience and financial flexibility. Among us there exists a wide verity of table saw types and brands. Only one of us has the luxury of a true cabinet saw. (Yes. we all hate him too but he has good beer.) The rest of us mere mortals make due with our finances such as they are. Of the type/price saw that the Delta is, two of our friends own the “orange” one and one owns...

Pricey but excellent

Pricey but excellent

This review is for the SawStop contractor’s saw equipped with the 36” inch steel rails and “T-glide” fence. And eventually with the cast iron wings. As a preface let me say that I know that SawStop is controversial among woodworkers. This review is not an argument for or against the SawStop safety system. This review concentrates on its qualities as a table saw, not the safety brake. I’ve had this saw for over a year now and I’ve been extremely ple...

The Greatest Birthday Present / Bonus in History

The Greatest Birthday Present / Bonus in History

41 days ago by Kenyon94 | 22 comments »

I feel guilty posting the backstory on this, but the story needs to be told. I just started into woodworking four months ago. First, I built a workbench with some basic handheld powertools and was generally obsessed with my new hobby. In early January, I was with my business partner who happens to be my longtime best friend and I was once again talking about all the stuff I wanted to build and the tools I wanted to buy. He asked me what my dream purchase was, and I showed him the SawStop hot ...

UPDATE 1 After one week of use the EXACT same problem I was having with the Ridgid appeared. I’m waiting on Grizzly to see how they handle this situation. The blade misalignment when lowering and raising the blade is worse than it was on the RIDGID. It’s so strange that it takes a few days worth of use for this to show up. The exact same problem with two completely different companies. I’m cursed. I shot a video this time of the problem. You can see it here:https://www.youtu...

So I just purchased my new Grizzly G0715P Hybrid and I absolutely love it. I sold my G1023 left tilt 3 HP. for the money I got this new table saw and lots of accessories.

It’s great because you can bring your paperwork with cut list to the table saw and just work without moving away from the saw.The out feed ta...

New Craftsman 10" Table Saw 21833

New Craftsman 10" Table Saw 21833

I got this saw last weekend and I finally had a chance to put it together and I do have to say I am excited. I had an old craftsman little contractor saw with the weird miter slots and the underpowered motor, which wasn’t very accurate. This new saw, (after spending 6 hours assembling and aligning it, and help from 3 people to flip it over) work amazing. I get nice clean and accurate cuts, (with a new blade and not the one that it came with). The fence is solid and accurate with the ta...

UPDATED: Returning the saw.

UPDATED: Returning the saw.

51 days ago by JSB | 21 comments »

I have no complaints with this saw. It’s a great buy for the money. I’ve only used it for one project so far so if things change I’ll update this. I doubt they will though. Pros:-Enough power for what what just about anyone will do.-Fence alignment is easy.-Blade alignment is easy, I think they worked out all the problems there. blade to miter slot is easy…still has other problems noted below-Mobile base is smooth.-4” dust collection port. Cons:-none so far...
