Hi just bought myself a second hand table saw, whay i was wondering is does anone know of any good web sites that have any good table saw jigs and or projects not only to use the table saw but also to enable me to use the table saw correctly and safely.
The saw sadly came without a blade guard and kickback device as well as no miter gauge as well.
So if anyone can help i would be very greatfull.
Thanks and all the best.

Google is your best friend! Type in your saw model and see if you can get original or aftermarket parts. There are tons of web sites with table saw jigs. Search and view pictures for a more visual experience. Then you’ll see more than just one type of cross cut sled or taper cutting jig. Look at the Incra 1000SE for a really nice miter gauge at a fairly affordable ($100-110 on Amazon from time to time) price. If that sounds a little steep there are other options. I have a Shark Guard that you might be able to buy for your saw from Lee Styron (LeeWay Workshop) that is a splitter and dust collecting guard.

-- some day I hope to have enough clamps to need a clamp cart!

No miter gauge. Whoops! don’t use the fence to crosscut solid wood. That’s safety advice number one! Your local library will most likely have some books on woodworking. They may very well have one on table saws. You can get very good aftermarket miter gauges. As far as jigs are concerned many will rely on the accuracy of your table top – its flatness and the trueness of the miter slots and so forth.
