Table Saw: Sizing the Correct Table Top Height - 12 replies

I recently purchased from a local widow my first hybrid table saw, a 2009 Hitachi C10FL. It had been sitting idle for a few years, so there was much cleaning and adjusting to be done. I’m at the tail end of all that, and in running test cuts it occurred to me how ‘tall’ this saw is on its factory stand, approximately 36 inches....

ProCom Vent-Free Dual Fuel Infrared Radiant Wall Heater Safe For Dusty Environment? - 5 replies

Gripper push block system on textured surfaces - 38 replies

I have a Skilsaw 3410-02 with a heavily textured cast-aluminum top. Does anyone have experience with using a Gripper push block on this kind of surface? I am thinking it will not glide well, possibly be binding. I don’t want to invest in such an expensive system if it won’t work on this kind of table saw top.
