2x4 workshop table top - 6 replies

Don’t know if this post belongs here but I have a few questions. Why is it that everyone that have built a table top out of 2×4s glues up the pieces vertically instead of horizontally?

I want to build a table for my drill press and want to know how this can be done without the height adjustment arm interfering with it. What I have now is a piece of plywood but I had to cut a piece off on an angle for the adjustment arm to freely move. I want to build something similar to what is shown on the second picture below.

All about the Ridgid R4510 - 0 replies

What problems do you have with your Ridgid R4510 table saw? For starters, mine hashas issues with the miter slots not being straight at all. Some areas of the miter slots are straighter than others.

Kickback - 12 replies

Anyone owns a Ridgid R4510 table saw? If you do I need your help/advice. I experienced kickback with this TS 3 times already and to be honest that is more dangerous than I thought.

This is my second attempt on a 10” bench drill press. After a huge disappointment with the Harbor Freight 10” bench drill press due to the fact that the quill and chuck wobbled no matter how many times I adjusted the set screw.
