I am currently without a TS, but am soon to purchase a Dewalt DW744XRS. I do not have a shop, so this saw allows me the ability to fold it away when time to turn “shop” back into garage at the end of the day.
I have started working with wine barrels to make various projects. I have been looking for ways to rip thin (1/2”+/-) sections from the staves for use in framing applications. I will use these to make frames for wine box panels, serving trays, etc. As you know, the staves are concave, so riding along a fence does not work, at least until you have made the first cut to square one side.
I was introduced to the sled concept, but it doesn’t seem correct/safe for use with a portable saw of this type that does not have feed tables.
