As you may know, i’m building a 12” jointer. I needed a multi-ribbed v-belt so i called saw stop asking if i could buy that part from my table saw, for my jointer. The guy asked me my name and when he saw that i had a sawstop he said he would send it for free! I also asked if they can sharpen their own blades, (I like the one it came with) and he just sent me another one of those for free as well! 23 hours later i am sitting here with a new and free belt and blade. Now that is som...

Porter Cable Table Saw Model PCB270TS

Porter Cable Table Saw Model PCB270TS

09-09-2012 03:07 AM by SirFatty | 27 comments »

Recently, I had ran into a problem with my old Craftsman table saw. I decided to replace it instead of repairing it. Having used it for a couple weekends and making quite a few cuts, I’ve come to really appreciate this machine. My views might not be fully objective having come from a twenty year old Craftsman, but this new saw is just fantastic. Yes, there are a few shortcomings (which I will detail), but the pros far outweigh the cons. To begin with, the PCB270TS quick and easy...

Craftsman 10" Contractor Table Saw Model 21833 Review

Craftsman 10" Contractor Table Saw Model 21833 Review

08-30-2012 02:38 PM by Daris | 14 comments »

I’ve had my Craftsman Table Saw for about a year now, and it is rock solid!  I previously owned a craftsman saw that had the tabletop made out of aluminium.  It was okay for the money, but wasn’t very sturdy.  Frequently when I would feed plywood into the table it would tip the whole saw.  My new saw has been really solid and almost a year later I can say I’m very happy with it. Before I go any further though I have to say I have a weird myopic bias for and against ...

Porter Cable Table Saw review

Porter Cable Table Saw review

08-26-2012 04:49 PM by AJswoodshop | 3 comments »

I bought this table saw because my old one was falling apart. My old craftsman table saw I got at a garage sale, for $30.00. It worked for a few months, but then I found out about porter cable. But when I got the porter cable miter saw, ended up getting a porter cable table saw, I paid $300, with tax I paid about $330. The table saw stand is awesome, its very sturdy, and really easy to roll the table saw out of the way. A table saw needs a good fence, and miter gauge. The miter gauge that cam...

Great table saw for the money

Great table saw for the money

08-03-2012 10:04 AM by chadgr | 3 comments »

I bought this saw as a replacement for another cheapo saw which packed up on me :( I only paid £170 for the saw and after putting it together it ran fin and everything was set up apart from the blade not being parlell to the miter slots, however a quick turn with a screw driver fixed this. My only suggestion would be is to buy another saw with because the that came with only lasts a few cuts before requiring sharpening or other operations. All in all a good buy. Chad Aged 14

Hammer K3 Winner Review

Hammer K3 Winner Review

I noticed no one had posted a review about this saw so it’s time! Anyone who is interested in getting a SS ICS should consider this saw first. For a short time I had a Laguna Platinum series and was not pleased at all. Numerous problems, wobble in the arbor, not good. Sold it, saved my pennies and after a long process, decided on the Hammer. What a great decision! I have had it about 4 months and I smile every time I walk past it in the garage. Those Austrians have it going on. S...

What a great piece of equipment

I got this saw a few months ago. I figured I like it enough to write a review. Yes, the Sawstop always leads to heated discussions. This is a review of the saw and nothing else. I will admit, the safety is what first made me look at the Sawstop, However, it is the last thing I think about when I use it. I hope I never have to make use of the braking system, but if I do, I’ll be glad I got it. Speaking of that, I have not had any false triggers as of yet, and I hope to not ever. Th...

Like a lot of woodworkers, buying a cabinet saw was a big commitment for me. It wasn’t just a big financial decision; I also wanted to be sure I was going to have enough time between kids, a career, and other stuff that I’d feel like I really got my money’s worth out of it. My Ridgid contractor’s saw was doing a nice job for me already. But I like to make cabinets and, at the end of the day, it’s just not convenient to break down a 4×8 sheet of plywood wi...

So far..Great

I just finished assembling my new Ridgid R4512 table saw, and checking alignment with the elegant little Woodpecker saw gauge I purchased at the same time as the saw. Run-out on the blade was about .010”, but the run-out was a function of the blade, not the arbor’s alignment. The fence was easily adjusted, and I left it open beyond the blade about .003”. Although I have no operating experience yet with this saw, and therefore, can’t comment on its accuracy, repeatability or reliability over t...
