Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw christmas table saw

What a great man he is. My first ever (owned) tablesaw, and I don’t think I could have done any better. I was looking at a Ryobi, my budget must be a tad slimmer than his.

Thanks guys. I’m stoked. I had a list of three saved on my computer, and this was one of them. But it was the “someday”, “would buy if I get a good tax return” choice. Like on a “if only” list. My sneaky wife gave my Father the list. And he actually chose this one on his own, after he did his own research.

My son wanted a battery impact, but not being a trades guy, he didn’t know much about them, so I got him Ridgid with lifetime batteries ;-)) That is why his old drill quit, batteries went ;-(

Congrats on the saw and the sneaky wife :-) Just one thing, us dads are just spending your inheritance :-))

LOL ^ good one. :)

One thing I would do on my “todo list” for the saw is to make a ZCI (zero clearance insert) for that saw. Much cleaner and safer cuts.

Just a video to show how to make one.

I would use set screws instead of the ones they have.

You should look into getting a Grrripper as well. It’s the best table saw safety device to come along in many years.
There are training videos on U tube for it. The company also sells a training and safety DVD for it.

Second thing, make push sticks. Lots of different sizes and keep them near by.

As the owner of a 4100 saw, I think you (and your dad) done good, here !

Just to help rid you of a little bit of excess cash (!) .... I’m VERY happy with my Bosch infeed/outfeed extensions, and the Forrest Woodworker II blade that I put on mine !

Also a good idea to buy (Bosch sells the blanks) or make (easily found, anywhere, plans to do so) a Zero Clearance Insert !

Also, take the time to figure out how to be SURE that your blade AND fence are very well aligned with your miter slot. Well worth it !
