Update! (03-06-2019)I updated the article with information on the current promotion which involves a free accessory when you purchase a PCS. Now is a good time to buy!

The Essential Craftsman

02-03-2018 12:40 AM by IantheTinker | 7 comments »

Hey folks, I just wanted to point out a YouTube channel called Essential Craftsman. It is run by a man named Scott and his son, Nate. Scott values craftsmanship of any kind very highly. He has been a logger and has been a contractor for many years. I have found him to be a wealth of both knowledge and encouragement. He is currently building a spec house and is filming every step of the process. I think many of you might enjoy his channel. P.S. He is also a really good blacksmith with lots ...

Contractor Clipboard, Why didn't you think of this!

Help me choose my first table saw!

I have a project I will be starting of built-in bookcases with a faceframe and doors, plus an adjoining mantel that I feel will be a heck of a lot easier to complete if I have a table saw for the task.

Sawstop

03-28-2009 08:17 PM by JimmyNate | 7 comments »

I finally settled on a Sawstop Contractor model for my table saw. First, the bad news: $1449.00 Contractor saw and steel stand$190.00 Cast Iron wings$390.00 52” T-Glide fence+tax= $$$$$$$$—-still too recent to do the math and remind myself. I didn’t get the moble base ($160) or the outfeed table ($???) as I don’t plan to move the saw around the shop and I plan on making my own outfeed table. The good news (happily there’s plenty of this): The assem...
