Camera left on during cleanup and long overdue power tool maintenance

04-05-2021 01:20 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 6 comments »

This is nothing spectacular. I just let the camera roll as I talked about an overdue checkup of the shop. Today I did some cleaning and some long overdue power tool maintenance. Mostly it was cleaning and the maintenance was checking to see if any adjusting was needed on a jointer and planer. I did a complete greasing of the sawstop innards according to the sawstop video, which I provided a link if anyone uses the PCS. It’s actually a fairly straightforward job if you’ve got th...

Sawstop Tips From the User's Perspective #3: "Tested the Brake on my Dado Blade, it Works!"

12-05-2020 04:25 AM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

So I was milling a shallow groove in a custom hardwood fence for a t-track. I already had a t-track installed on the opposite side of the fence. My Infinity dado blade hit the tip of a screw in the fence and fired the brake. I was sending the workpiece through the saw with a push paddle, but I must have brushed the t-track with my trailing hand. In totally unceremonious fashion, the blade immediately dropped below the table and munched the dado brake. Getting the blades and brake...

Reorganization of the shop: Not what I had planned on doing

11-29-2020 11:49 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 8 comments »

On my way to finishing the guitar I decided I needed to do a cleaning of the shop to minimize the dust to put the finish coats on the instrument. Along the way I ended up doing a four day reorganization. Oh, I did clean it too. This video shows the changes in the shop after the reorganization. Also, I’ve been following posts on LJ’s about dust collection and venting outside, in the winter, I managed to do something like that here.

Sawstop safety mechanism fired

05-19-2020 01:00 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 10 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!

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...
