Hi all and thanks in advance. I’m about to start an outfeed/assembly table for my G0690 and the the fence that’s on there is a dual rail.

Hi everyone, i’m thinking of getting a stabilizing system for a pecan tree i just acquired. Most of the wood looks decent, but there are sections with bug holes in it. I’ve looked around on the forums, and it seems some people are stabilizing their own blanks, but I’ve yet to see anyone mention what system they use. Any s...

G0833P or G1023RLWX - 17 replies

So the wife said go ahead an get a table saw…. I’ve narrowed it down to two saws unless a good used one actually hows up on the local CL. Being a novice/weekend warrior, how much overkill would the 1023 be for me? I like the size and the built in router table as I was planning on building one into the 0833 anyways. After reading ...

Pro's and Con's of 2x4 frame vs plywood miter saw station / work bench - 29 replies

Good afternoon, I’m in to process of designing a miter saw station and I see a lot of people make them out of plywood and a lot out of a 2×4 frame. Could anyone tell me the pro’s/con’s of each?
