Dewalt 925 Radial Arm Saw Saber-Saw Attachment - 2 replies

I’ve had this RAS accessory for a number of years, but never got around to using it. This morning I installed it and gave it a test run. It was easy to put together and works pretty well, if somewhat slow…needs a new blade, for sure. Anyone else have experience/thoughts about this unique tool?

7 1/4" x 1 1/8" bore/hole circular saw blades? - 25 replies

Just picked up this nice/vintage B&D 7” circular saw…replaced brushes and power cord and cleaned up the red paint it was covered with. It’s a tank and runs much more smoothly/stronger than a newer saw I own…and looks good, too. These old saws, I’ve found, use blades with a 1 1/8” arbor hole. A search of...

Router help - 13 replies

I have a “Gibson heavy duty router.” It’s a nice size and weight, so I would like to track down some info to make it usable. The motor is strong. The subbase does not, however, have any screws and so I’m not sure how to attach a plastic/wooden plate to it. I tried Google and there is not much of anything out there ab...

Court upholds tablesaw verdict - 3 replies

I saw the following quote from the FWW website: “The woodworking world was stunned to learn that a controversial tablesaw lawsuit judgment was recently upheld. And now comes news that the Consumer Products Safety Commission is moving even faster to implement stricter saw standards. But have the feds done their homework?” http://www...
