« Part 2: Baileigh Table Saw Assembly Part 3 of Baileigh table saw series no next part

I have already posted this on some other forums, but I would like to keep it in my blog series also. I got impatient with the assembly video and wanted to show everyone how well it sounded and cut! So, here it is again:)

Fantastic, that is a beautiful saw. It outdoes my Bosch 1031. I’m still in training wheels. Lol.
Good luck to you, Sue

You have a great saw now Shelly. A huge step up. Heck, with my little skil saw table saw, even that rigid would be a huge step, I’m jealous. ( I saw that your hand was up against the fence, you weren’t being unsafe, your hand was a few inches away from the blade, there will probably be another billion people to tell you to make a push stick or whatever, don’t let it ruin your fun with the new saw, which I’m sure you know, you were just excited and testing the first cut). Enjoy!

That looks like a great saw. I not familiar with Baileigh; will have to do some research. I hope you do a review of the saw after you have used it for a couple of months. Thanks for sharing.

Lol I think the camera angle just made it look close to the blade. I never let my hand get within a couple inches of the blade. We all have different levels of comfort. I feel more comfortable being able to control the wood with my hand, some feel more comfortable with a push stick. I have seen plenty of cut fingers and thumbs in the ER, so it’s always on the back of my mind and helps me remember to always be cautious. Julian-it is an awesome saw from what I have seen so far. Costumer service has been great too. I had a few questions with assembly and they always got right back to me. I will do a review after I have done several projects on it and really get to know it and will continue doing vids so you guys can get to know it too . Thanks everyone!

At 4:05 in the video was your little girl saying “I love you” to you (which is cute) or to the saw (which is adorable)?

I am really excited for you guys- I know you will have loads of happy times making sawdust together!

Looks like an awesome saw and even more so that you won it in contest! Hope it serves you well over the years. Cool that you are a nurse and woodworker. My daughter graduates from nursing school in May and loves working out in the shop with me. Maybe she’ll have a nice Baileigh saw one day….and I’ll go use it in her shop :)

I really did just lol. Well…I worked nights for 5yrs, so I am kind of still stuck in the night shift mode. Now I work mostly days, but I get a nightshift every week or 2. I work 3 12’s so I tend to stay up late on my days off. Once I start something, I really like to finish…and it always takes longer than I plan lol. So, “I’ll finish this one last thing, then go to bed” turns out alot longer than I plan. And Miss Payton doesn’t let me make up for it the next day.

Nice saw and video. I think that you should put a blade guard on it and you should definitely use a push stick. There is a grip that works great and will save your fingers or hand. It is easy to get distracted in the shop and having your daughter, or children, are an added disadvantage to becoming distracted and the cause of an accident.
I am also a nurse and think that safety is very important. You only get two hands and I know lots of woodworkers who have lost digits and parts of hands because of not using a push stick. If the board jams or you slip that is all it takes.
