Hey guys. First time posting here. As stated in the title Im trying to reach Tablesaw Tom (Bussey). I have a bedrock 608 jointer that badly needs the sole flattened and have heard from several people that he is the guy to do it. On his website www.tablesawtom.com he has no contact information listed, it just says coming soon for the past two months now. He has pricing information so im assuming hes still in business. Im wondering if anyone on here possibly has his email or some way to reach him. Thanks in advance.

Here is his e-mail (edited) tablesawtom at hotmail.com Obviously replace the at with the symbol and delete the spaces. He spends a lot of time over at Woodnet. I can’t praise his work enough, I had a #6 done by him and it was fantastic, he also flattens the back of the blade as part of the price.

Thanks Fred, I actually already found his address, however my first post got caught in approval limbo for half a week so I couldn’t post to say I already got it.

+1 on Tablesaw Tom…..he does some pretty incredible work, and is a stand up guy too. You can send him a PM at Woodnet if the email doesn’t workout for you.

I have a 604 that Tom did for me and I have to admit, I was VERY pleasantly surprised at how good it works now. His price includes flattening the sole, squaring the sole to the sides, and flattening the iron. Pretty reasonable once you factor in everything he does. ( I only mention this for those readers that aren’t familiar with his work)

Does anyone know if tom is still doing this service? I emailed him early this week and have not heard back… the website is apparently shut down.

Tom is on several sites and I just messaged him over at Woodnet. He replied he no longer does the plane grinding. Too bad, I have several planes he’s ground and his work is really nice.

Thanks a lot. He contacted me this morning with that info. Maybe your question at wood net helped. I have been trying to get on at woodnet but they are blocking my registration as a spammer. I contacted the admin but ::crickets::

Have your say...
