    First Table Saw Purchase

    Finally to the point that I can't really do anything else with wood without the use of a table saw. I've borrowed a few over time to do what I need from Neighbors or family, but that is getting a bit old now. My big debate is whether to go with a Job Site type saw with riser stand or a more...

    $500 Table saws?

    OK one day I want a Saw Stop table saw but with the price it's going to be a long time off. I need to upgrade from my old Craftsmen contractor saw [junk]. I'm leaning towards the RIDGID R4512 10 in. 13 Amp Professional...

    3 Wheel Band Saws

    I saw a Delta band saw for sell on Craig's List. However looking for reviews on it I saw "3 Wheelers are bad!" over and over. Is this true or just a myth? http://charlotte.craigslist.org/tls/2616474476.html

    First Hand Tool Goat - Dovetail Saws

    It turns out that my wife could be interested in wood working if not for all the dust, noise, respirators, safety issues, etc that are associated with power tools. With this in mind we both registered for Roy's dovetail class in August to get us both some proper training on hand cut joinery...

    Advice in cutting up metal/old saws?

    Any one have advice on what I should use to cut up a cheap saw? I have a couple of cheap saws that I originally bought to practice sharpening on. (It's the same one here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320687265213) I didn't realize what "hardpoint" meant, so I ended up...

    A couple of new saws for the till

    I contracted a new upstart saw builder to make me a couple of new saws since I wasn't in love with my current dovetail saw. I figured I would get in on the ground floor before his success starts to demand more money. First is a dovetail saw which sports a cocobolo handle, solid brass slotted...

    Which saws?

    I'm trying to figure out which handsaws I need for general furniture building. Does this make sense? 2 panel saw - 1 crosscut, 1 rip 2 backsaws (tenon saw or carcass saw?) 1 crosscut, 1 rip 1 dovetail saw I have a panel crosscut and the dovetail saw. I'm using a crappy borg crosscut backsaw but...

    Did you know...Freud blades for Festool Saws?

    Here's a dirty little industry secret, some of you may or may not know. Vendors of Festool products, for fear of retribution, are not allowed to speak of alternative accessories, or replacement parts, etc... for Festool products? For example, Freud sells saw blades for the Festool TS 55/75...

    Re-sawing by hand--frame saws?

    I just made a screen door out of 1x3s, and the most expensive bit was the small 1/2" trim I used to cover up the screen edges. I was starting to want to work with non-dimensional sizes anyway, so I've been doing some research in re-sawing. I don't have a bandsaw, and I don't really want such a...

    Pre-gloat, 18th Century Back Saws.....

    K, I'm busting at the seams here. I picked up not one, but two 18th century back saws off eBay tonight. They are registered manufactures from the mid 1700 to early 1800's. Both are of the 18th century in handle style, and one has the coveted three crown stamp. I hate to jinks this...

    Handedness of table saws

    For many years I've got by with an 8" B&D table saw. Certainly got my money's worth out of it! The fence-locking mechanism is such that you can put the fence to the left or to the right of the blade. Recently I upgraded to one of those 10" Craftsman cast iron jobs. Here, the fence is on the...

    Heavy duty jig saws

    OK, I was asking about a better grade of benchtop bandsaw and a reference to using a Festool jigsaw with a 4" blade for cutting blanks was made in one post. This sent me off in another direction, hence this thread. A quick search shows that a few models in the $150+ range claim to cut wood up to...
