This week-end was the catch up week-end on important projects. Started off Sat had plan to spend some time with my son and get some shop time in. Day took longer and did not get to it. Decided that’s ok as he’s graduating high school and I wont get to many more opportunities.
So I said today is the day. Needed to do some dado’s in wine cabinet sides. Up until now had made them with a router. I wanted to try them with my dado set and compare the set up time and see which was faster. I seem to be making a lot of wine cabinets lately.
I got my sawstop a few months and at the time did not get the dado cartridge and would need it along with a dado insert. Well Woodcraft is about 30 minutes away and they did not open till noon. Did some work and headed down and they even let me in early. Picked up my cartridge and insert headed back.
Got everything ready and went to change it over and the new cartridge would not go in. I tried a couple times and then looked at the pin outs on the other cartridge and noticed the new one had 3 rows of pins and my regular one only had two rows. Looked up the part number and sure enough it was for the original version of sawstop.
Go get back in the truck and back we go. Another trip there and back and the cartridge changed fine and I was back in business. Well except for the wild goose chase I do believe the setup is faster with the dado set. I really like the fast change over possible with the sawstop. Makes it easy with the wide opening. Did not accomplish much but it at least I did get to make some sawdust.
Hope ya’ll did too.
