    tablesaw safety question

    I just turned my tablesaw on to cut a dado cut in my routertop when I heard something hit the floor behind the saw. I turned it off and found a piece of metal about 1 1/4 inch long. It is about 1/8 inch on all four sides. I have looked all over the back and can't determine where it came from...

I have looked at the Rigid 3650 and have looked at the Delta Contractor Saw at Lowe's with the variety of fence choices. Either will serve well...

    Idea for tablesaw blade guard...

    Ok, asking all you out of tinkeres out there. My "idea" is some sort of solid wood "block" that would mount over the saw blade. Something you raise the blade into. Splitter of some sort attached to the wood. Some sort of finger board type thing to prevent kickback. Aka, nails in...

    A table saw question... I have a 1970's Walker Turner 2 HP cabinet sytle saw. When I rip boards (especially maple, wh.Oak) the fence side of the blade burns the wood and there is a slight binding at the end of the rip. My blade is square (ie plumb) and my fence is as well. Is it possible...

    Adjustments for Ridgid tablesaw

    I have a Ridgid tablesaw with no manual. Can someone explain how to adjust the fence to keep it straight. When I measure the fence to the blade from end to end it isn't the same. When I try to rip a piece of hardwood the wood seems to bind making me unconfortable so I find myself ripping my...

    Martin tablesaw

    Figured I would let you all see this monster I saw at counterpoint's today. It is one massive piece of solid cast iron. I would love to have it, but it is already sold. Glad of it as I probably couldn't afford it.

    I want to build a tablesaw crosscut sled.

Reason I am doing this, I am not...

    Tablesaw to Enge Sander?

    Hi All, I have an old Crafstman direct drive 8 inch table saw tucked away in the corner and was wondering if it would be possible to remove the blade and convert it to an edge sander? Would I just need to try and find an 8 inch sanding disk that will slide onto the arbor? Or...
