The classic Unisaw

The classic Unisaw

After using a Delta contractor saw for about 9 years I finally moved to my new shop with the roomfor a full size saw. I bought this saw while my shop was being built. Amazon had mis-priced this saw so I jumped on it and got it for $1340 delivered. Plus a $100 rebate from Delta. The next day Amazon bumped the price up to $1900. What can you saw about the Unisaw. They started making them about 1937 and most all saws made todayare based on it. You can probably still get parts for your 60 y...

Craftsman Professional 10inch Table Saw

Craftsman Professional 10inch Table Saw

I have always liked Craftsman brand tools..so when it came time to look for a table saw that is where I went. I caught this saw on sale and was able to spread the payments interest free over a year. Sale price was around $950. It lists for around $1100. The only thing I have added to it is a movable base. It is a very solid machine and took four guys to unload it from the trailer. It is a very strong smooth running saw. It came with a Biesemeyer fence system, which is a real gem. Nice h...

Last August, I was starting a new project; an oak fireplace mantel for a friend. I guess my 10+ year old Delta (cheap inboard motor model) could not take the strain and let out what souded like a high pitched scream and stopped with a puff of white smoke. After a few explatives and a sudden realization that my project was on hold, I went inside and started looking online for a new saw. I read so many reviews, my head started to spin, but I knew I wanted another Delta. If it is good enough for...

Outstanding Saw for the Home Shop

Outstanding Saw for the Home Shop

02-29-2008 06:46 PM by Chris | 4 comments »

I have owned this saw for approx. two years now. In reality I would rate it at about 4.5 stars only due to a minor annoyance. I had been using a bench top Delta given to me by my father in-law for a few years and had become VERY frustrated with this kind of saw. In my search for a contractor style saw it came down to either the Powermatic or the General; I am glad I chose the General. It was accurate right out of the box; I used a Master Plate / Master Guage setup to check the blade and ...

Ridgid TS3650 Table Saw

Ridgid TS3650 Table Saw

I’ve had this saw for about a year and love it. It was pretty square out of the box and the fence is really steady in contrast with earlier reviews on older models. The ability to move it on wheels is great, it comes with the wheels attached a bonus. There is a 2 1/2” dust collector hook up up under the saw which is so so, it’s hard to control the saw dust on any contractor’s saw. I have had no troubles with it and would highly recommend it.

I saw the review of a refurbished jointer and wanted to post a review on a unique table saw. The Hammond Glider saws were originally designed to cut lead type for printing presses. They are a very precise, sliding table saw with accessories designed to easily and accurately position very small pieces for cutting. I purchased mine for $50.00 on Craigs List and this included a very strong 1 HP motor. When I picked up the saw, the table was a solid sheet of rust. However, the table still sl...

IntroThe saw is a 3hp, 635 pound behemoth. It is heavier than sin. Steel, Black, and Red are a good look for a saw. Very, very, very, expensive. Over $4000 with all accessories (fence, mobile base, dado cartridge, extra break cartridge, taxes). I know ….. that is really expensive. (And… I’m over it.) Why this saw: I have been taking woodworking classes for the last four years and have grown accustomed to working on the Unisaws and Powermatic cabinet saws. At home I was using a ...

Excellent Saw, Great Power, Good Price

Excellent Saw, Great Power, Good Price

I purchased the 10” Hybrid saw in December last year, so it has been in the shop fewer than two months. But in these two months we have grown quite close. My wife named her “Biesy Baby” after the fence.I’ll touch on a few of the more important points in my review of the saw, and hopefully add some insight into your shopping experience. Features: The saw came, as the name states, with the left tilt feature. Two noted luxuries this affords are in large mitred-edge ...

Okay, I realized when I spent $99 on a table saw that I would be getting what I payed for, but I was just starting out and really needed something. I picked up a decent blade for it and hoped for the best. Power: none. It can barely cut a 2” x 4” through the “2” side, don’t even bet on the “4” side. Reliability: Well it hasn’t broken on me yet, but I lost the arbor wrench and without it I can’t change the blade. If you get one, do...
