Incra Express Sled - 5 replies

I purchased one of these and I want to use it with an Incra 1000SE gauge. Prior to opening the box I read the instructions on the Incra website. It appears as though using this sled is a PITA in terms of mounting and dismounting from the saw. One also has to mount/dismount the miter gauge from the sled for non-sled use. Before I open the box I&#...

WTB Sawstop PCS 1.75 or 3 hp - 4 replies

I am in the market for a Sawstop PCS 1.75 or 3 hp saw. I don’t need the fence, rails, extension table, blade, or miter gauge. All I need is the (properly working) saw, cast iron wing, brake cartridge, blade wrenches, allen key, and the plastic spacer gauge.

DeWalt DW 735 planer question - 20 replies

I have a DW735 with the original factory knives. They are getting dull and I am thinking of replacing them with carbide tipped knives or a Shelix cutter head. I am not a fan of this planer because it will snipe every time. I have done everything I know to do to make the snyping problem go away. I even installed a 4’ long melamine board acr...

Laguna vs. Powermatic Jointer - 11 replies

I am looking to buy a floor standing jointer. I have it narrowed down to Laguna 6”/8” Wedgebed with Shear Tec II and Powermatic 54HH/60HH. It appears the Laguna has more inserts but the PM has longer beds. The Laguna has a built-in mobile base. I typically buy boards which are 4 +/- feet in length. How much of a big deal is having lo...

Table Saw Arbor Nut not Tightening - 20 replies

I have a 20 year old Jet Contractor TS with a Forrest WWII of the same age. Everything was okay until I purchased a new Freud full kerf combo blade (red coating). I went to install the new blade and now I can’t get the arbor nut to tighten. I hold the blade stationary with a piece of scrap wood and the nut, washer, arbor, belt, and motor ...

bowed jointer fence - 30 replies

yesterday I went to look at a used jointer which I was considering purchasing. I brought my trusty aluminum straight edge with me. I checked the fence (cast iron) for flatness and I noticed it was bowed along it’s length. The middle of the bow was approximately 1/16”. The beds are 8” X 76” and I don’t know how long ...

table saw miter gauge - 10 replies

I want to replace the miter gauge on my 20 year old Jet Contractor saw. I’d like to here y’alls opinions on which one is best. BTW I already have a shop built sled for repeat cross cutting up to 48” so I don’t necessarily need a miter gauge with a telescoping fence. It would be awesome to have a mg where there is no slop ...

straight knife vs spiral cutter head on a jointer - 15 replies

Is it worth the extra $ to get a spiral cutter head on a jointer? I am looking at the Grizzly 0656 ($1095) and the 0656X ($1710). Is it really a pain in the rear to set straight knives even on a quality machine? Is the difference in the finish significant?
