Blade to miter slot problem - 4 replies

Hey folks, I have grizzly 1022z contractor saw. I built a crosscut sled for it and have noticed that the kerf is too wide. So, I double checked the blade to the miter slot, and sure enough it was out by nearly 1/8”. No, problem. I took the top off and went through the alignment procedure in the book, but ran into a snag.

Jointer knife sizes - 3 replies

I recently bought a used Jet J-6csx jointer. It looks like the previous owner probably hit a nail because there is a nick in all three blades approx 3/32 wide by something just over 1/64 deep. It’s more than I can take out by hand so I am having them sharpened professionally. In the meantime, I want to purchase a spare set of knives to hav...

Hi folks, I’ve been in the market for a thickness planer for awhile now and finally found one on CL. Owner claims it to be a 13 1/2” 2 blade Rigid. He says he can’t find the model number, but states the planer works great. He’s asking $175 which includes a stand he made for it. He isn’t able to upload pics, so I ...

Hidden surprises for the new woodworker - 8 replies

As a new woodworker I have been doing a lot of reading lately. I’ve built larger projects for the wife, such as a gazebo, cedar yard swing and the like, with pretty good results for the tools I have, which are mostly carpentry tools; circular saw, framing nailers and the like. But that’s not really woodworking; it’s carpentry. Now that I’m de...

Rusty saw table - 18 replies

Hi folks. My first post here. I’m in the process of putting together a small woodshop, strictly hobbyist stuff for the wife; cabinets, sewing boxes etc, etc…just trying to keep her happy. First on the list is a table saw. At first I was looking at the Rigid R4512, but all to many owners complain of alignment issues, then I star...
