Please help - suspected Sawstop PCS alignment issues - 38 replies

Hi, all. I’ve got a PCS175 and have an issue with the alignment of the blade with the factory-supplied insert’s slot, AND with the slots in Infinity’s third-party insert made for my saw. I’m wondering if anyone else out there with my model of the saw has experienced this and what they’ve done about it; and for tho...

Lightly used CMT Orange 6" dado set for sale, central NJ, will ship in US - 0 replies

$80, $100 shipped. This is a high quality set, model number CMT 230.020.06, with nice hard case, all shims, chippers, protective dividers, and instruction sheet (useful mostly for the chart to determine combinations of chippers and shims to get a particular size cut.) I’ve used this set for a total of only about 1 hour of cutting, all o...

Question about Forstner bit hole quality expectations. - 8 replies

How smooth should a new Forstner bit be cutting? I just bought a 1-13/16” for holes to hold votive candles, and the bit came to me looking and feeling raggedy, especially on the bottom-cutting edges. If it were a plane iron I’d be working it on my stones before using, for sure. The test holes I cut in both pine and cherry scrap ha...

Smith brand track saw - has anyone used one of these yet? - 6 replies

Hi all, I just spotted a new brand of track saw on Amazon: Smith. Did a little research, uses 6-1/2” (probably 160mm, actually, more on this) diameter, 20mm arbor blades, comes in two models 10A and 13.3A, both 120V. Amazon was selling the 13.3A model with a blade and two 59” track sections for $249. S8000-1600 is the model number...

Wanted: splitter and blade guard for older JET table saw - 21 replies

I have available to me a nearly brand new condition JWTS-10jf saw, 10” right-tilt contractor saw with a great aftermarket fence. Problem is, it is missing the splitter and blade guard, which I value highly and is a deal-breaker. JET no longer makes these parts, so I’m looking for either a used one, or someone to do a tracing of the...

FS Craftsman 10" RAS in good condition, central NJ - 3 replies

An oldie but goodie – I think I’ve had this for 20 or 25 years, it has been gently used, is in good shape with a smooth-running motor and new bearings on the carriage, so there’s hardly any play as it moves along the arm, and it cuts really nice. It’s on the Craftsman base designed for it, and includes a Sears carbide ti...

Seeking linear actuator control advice - 30 replies

Yes, more engineering than woodworking, truly, but hey…the thing being lifted IS wooden (and home-made). So here’s the scenario: I am designing a rectangular platform with four supporting posts that needs to be lifted about 30”, and the intention is to keep the area beneath the platform clear of obstruction. Thus, I cannot ...

Orthogonal mortises into a laminated post - 6 replies

Hi folks, It’s my plan to build a loft bed for my son. The design involves, among other details, gluing up four tall corner posts from two or three (probably pine) boards, and joining them to the stretchers running between them with mortise and tenon joints. I’m a beginner and for some reason have an uneasy feeling about mortise...
