First time posting , This post is about upgrading my shop, particularly my table saw.
I put myself a notch above homeowner/novice. Besides from doing maintenance, projects and home improvements, such as building a house full of simple plank doors, trim, 4,000sq ft floors…as an artist most of the work I do revolves around fabricating frames. I make very simple picture frames and I think using a simple rabbet bit would do me well. I saw a video (ibuildit ) and the guy used a router table. LOOKED SO EASY Perfect, clean fast.. So I think that a rabbet on my router might improve efficiency and quality.
So starting with the table saw. I think have out grown the saw.
I should have bought an extension table for the 2708 way back when but now it seems silly. Buying a new fence and/or an extension table that comes with that bigger and better fence means spending $300 – $500 bucks. Solves many of my problems but I might as well get a new saw? Can’t just get any craigslist fence since it has to fit my saw.
If anyone has ANY suggestions I’m all ears. Also about the Router addition.
