Sawstop safety mechanism fired

05-19-2020 01:00 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 9 comments »

Update 6/2/20 Sawstop sent me a replacement cartridge today. I’d already purchased one but now I have a spare. I’ve heard of this customer service. Now I’ve experienced it. I’ve had my sawstop professional cabinet saw since 2017. I’ve used it a fair amount. Yesterday I’m cutting a small piece of PVC, I turn the saw off and quickly walk away with the piece I cut. In the couple of seconds it takes for the blade to spin down the safety mechanism fires. ...

Table Saw Crosscut Sled

02-15-2018 03:51 AM by wrenchhead | 5 comments »

This is a must have in my shop. This essential table saw accessory will allow me to make accurate repeatable cuts on narrow work pieces and panels. I built a general use sled, fit the runners and square up the fence using the 5 cut method. I learned this method from watching the Wood Whisperer and William Ng build their crosscut sleds. Check out their videos for a more detailed explanation of the fence squaring process. Thanks for watching! https://youtu.be/dIQ4_vhq5NU

Benchdog Cast Iron Router Table on SawStop pic, per request

04-17-2017 06:14 PM by BikerDad | 0 comments »

So, Pat (aka Fishman33) has asked for some pics of how my Benchdog Router table is attached to my SawStop. This is a pic of my SawStop PCS before I built my new “station” for it. The tablesaw “wing” setup has not changed from this pic, only the base has changed. From the back of the saw, moving to right to left, the wings are SawStop Sliding Table in place of the wing. Then the Saw, Solid Extension Wing, Solid Extension Wing (this one was formerly where the Slidi...

Nothing spectacular, just adjusting a couple of things. I’m getting ready for the next 41 builds. On my radar pretty much in this order: A bridal chest for my daughter who’s getting married in September, A kitchen table, on of the last pieces of furniture of the house after a complete remodel of it and furniture, A dining table ...

Note to self: Put blade in facing forward, it cuts better

04-08-2017 07:53 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 11 comments »

I freely present my stupidity for all to see… Today I got the dust collection hooked up on my new Sawstop. I aligned everything and started it up. Try something simple, a soft spruce piece of 2×4. Smoke and burning wood! Not a good impression for a 3hp saw. Then I thought, what could it be? It seems that the arbor nut is on the right side of the blade where my old saw it was on the left. For some reason this led me to put the blade in backwards (I don’t know why but it ...
