So I’m considering dumping my individual machines and looking at A euro combination machine. I’ve seen a number of videos on them but was wondering how to make finger joints on a euro sliding table saw or is it better done with the shaper? Also, are there any other jig operations that can’t be done on a euro sliding table saw? I’m just trying to visualize what workflow differences there are when you don’t have a miter track slot on a TS?

Thanks!

Standard table saw jigs generally need modification to work
on a slider, but they can be used generally.

The older Robland X-31s have a miter slot. The newer
format style sliding tables usually have a sort of miter gauge
slot in them, but it’s a lot wider and deeper than
a standard miter slot.

Also the standard slider has a miter gauge, so you could just attach to the miter gauge. It uses the slider, not a slot.

I am in Atlanta, GA and have a Hammer K3 sliding table saw and get contacted occasionally by Hammer USA to let someone come over and look at my saw before buying. Call Hammer USA and ask if that would be possible in your area – http://www.hammerusa.com/us-us/products.html

Also, there are a LOT of jigs you can devise for a sliding table. There are “T” slots running the length of the slide on the top and the side that allow you to attach about anything you can dream up. I have designed and built a number of them to keep my fingers well away from the blade and to aid in accurately making a cut and holding work firmly to avoid shifting while cutting.
