Craftsman Contractor TS

Got this saw new for Christmas. it replaced a smaller, direct drive Craftsman TS that I had had for a few years. The box is a monster, weighing in at a little over 275 ibs. You will need help (or some lumber to use as a ramp) getting it out of your vehicle. Once on the ground though, it moves around relatively easily (at least on my garage floor) since it is extremely well packed and a sturdy box. PACKAGINGThe top packaging slab is a polystyrene tray that contains 90% of the bits and p...

Ridgid R4512 Table Saw --

Ridgid R4512 Table Saw --

01-27-2013 02:02 PM by fstellab | 38 comments »

Hi Folks,I have about 3 weeks experience with my new R4512, and about 6 months working with wood. I started with a Ridgid Miter Saw, I was blown away, it is a great miter saw. So Ridgid tools are my tool of choice. First I must mention that I originally got a Craftsman 10” Laser guided table for Christmas, I spent days trying to get the thing together. I tried cutting a boards, but I got a bad feeling, I was scared of the thing. I tuned as per the manual, but the first time I used it th...

General Canada 10" Cabinet saw & General International 14" Bandsaw.

General Canada 10" Cabinet saw & General International 14" Bandsaw.

01-19-2013 02:57 AM by Steve | 6 comments »

Well finally recieved my saws after 5 weeks’s of waiting. Both saws were shipped in sturdy wooden packing crates, and were pretty well fully assembled. They were covered in plastic and some type of grease preventing them from rusting during transport. Neither saw had one scratch or any paint problems. I was very happy to recieve them in this condition. One major problem they sent the wrong fence and rails with the Cabinet saw, now I am waiting again. Hopefully it shows up soon as I a...

Rigid 4510, a Beginner's Perspective

I have been lucky enough to be collecting some tools to help me expand my project capabilities from rough carpentry to some finer work. I recently got a planer, and today added a table saw. Previously I had made very good, and I’d like to think creative, use of a straight cut guide for my circular saw and a compound miter saw. After having worn out my CMS, I was preparing to purchase another, and decided to instead give it a little TLC and buy a table saw. I read many reviews and ...

Good enough, but not perfect

Good enough, but not perfect

12-24-2012 04:25 PM by colvinatch | 21 comments »

First, for what it’s worth, I have a Masters degree in functional design (woodworking) and studied under a master woodworker for 4 years. In our school shop we had large industrial 1960’s and 1970’s vintage Delta and Powermatic tools that had as much iron and steel in them as a Mack truck, so I know how a real saw is supposed to work, look and feel. Flash forward 15 years… For five years I have been using a crappy entry level ($100.00) table saw and it is simply god...

G1023RLW after a year and a few projects...

12-23-2012 12:03 PM by harvey4804 | 8 comments »

I purchased this G1023RLW back in October 2010. After a few back-orders I finally received the saw December 2010. Now, I purchased this saw because I was in the process of purchasing a house and we were only weeks away from closing and I figured that by the time the saw ships, I’d be moved in… WELLLL, long story short and nearly a year later and almost 10 offers on 10 other homes later we ended up closing August 2011 on the ONLY “traditional sale” in my area. Since th...

General International 50-200R M1 Table Saw

General International 50-200R M1 Table Saw

12-14-2012 03:26 AM by jmacz | 31 comments »

March 5, 2014 FYI: I have had several different batches of the 50-203 inserts from GI and none have the correct screw location for the table top. The GI provided solution is to drill new holes. GI cannot even tell me which is wrong according to THEIR manufacturing specifications; table top/original insert or the 50-203. I want a resin insert for the good blade. I have made 5 inserts for other uses and currently use one for the good blade cuts. This could be an issue with the 50-275R mo...

SawStop 3HP Professional Cabinet Saw W/ 36" T-Glide Fence System

For many years I have used a General 50-185 Contractor saw. It performed well over the years but my woodworking has advanced enough that I wanted something a little better. I have looked at the major cabinet saw brands but came back to this one because the others didn’t really trump it in any way plus it has superior safety features. I know that there are a lot of SawStop haters out there but my decision had very specific reasoning to back it up. My right index finger was severed by shr...

New Table saw for my shop

New Table saw for my shop

11-05-2012 12:28 AM by jerrells | 21 comments »

Well I finally burn out my old cheap table saw. I guess cutting some hard oak limbs was too much for it. I shopped around for something that I thought woul;d fit my needs for years to come. I decided on the Dewalt 745. It is going to be a Christmas present from my wife, my daughter and son-in-law and some money i pitched in. I was going to wait till black Friday to see if there was a better price. I normally show at Lowes and they had it for $369 which seemed to be the going price. I just hap...
