For Sale Harvey Gyro G700 Dust Collector - 6 replies

I’m firm on the price at $2450 or higher if there is a bidding war. The machine weighs about 500 lbs thus you will need four strong guys to load it or a ramp th...

Bandsaw Fence Hanger - 3 replies

If I leave the fence on my bandsaw in place on the table, I’m constantly running into the lockdown handle. If I take it off and place it somewhere in my shop the next time I need it I cannot find it. So I made a simple hanger with some scrap Baltic Birch plywood that solved both issues for me. First I glued a 1/4” piece to a piece th...

I’m considering replacing my Dewalt 10 Woodworker’s Table Saw with 30 Rails – DW746X with either the Bosch REXX or SawStop JSS-MCA and looking for suggestions. I’m leaning toward the REXX mainly because if the safety is triggered all you do is replace the cartridge or reverse it. In the SawStop it is necessary to replace ...
