Table saw blade will not stay aligned even with PALS - 16 replies

OK, I realize there are about a thousand threads on Lumberjocks’ forums about the virtues of and problems with Craftsman contractor saws. I’ve read through most, if not all, of them. I’ve also contributed to many. I’m starting a new thread on a familiar topic because of the degree of my particular problem. I own a 113....

Digital measuring tools - 24 replies

Wasn’t really sure where to post this, several forums seemed like a possible fit. But I digress… Do any of you weekend warriors ever use a digital caliper? I’ve had a few instances lately where it would have been nice to come up with a precise measurement, but I have nothing better than a 12” Empire steel rule, marked ...

Jet ProShop fence on a 1995 Craftsman TS - 4 replies

Hello again. I have a chance to score a brand new, still-in-the-box Jet the ProShop fence assembly (fence and rails) for only $90. Retail for this package is about $350, according to what I’ve seen online. My question: Is it possible to install this fence and rail system on a 1995 Emerson-made Craftsman contractor saw? I have model 1...

Craftsman 113 table saw with damaged trunnion - 7 replies

Greetings fellow sawdust makers. I have a problem that requires your expert input: ​I bought a used U.S. made Emerson/Craftsman 113.299315 (model number added after original post) table saw manufactured in or around 1995 that’s in very good shape except for one issue. The trunnion is jacked up. The gear for the height mechanism is so wo...

Best compact router? - 36 replies

Hello again. I’m looking for real-world user advice about palm/compact routers. I’ve looked at reviews for Bosch Colt, as well as units from Dewalt, PC, Ridgid, and Makita. I’ll use this tool for round-overs, shallow dados, and some bit of freehand clean up under counter tops. Do LEDs really help? How about things like noise, e...

portable heat for winter woodworking in the garage - 34 replies

I’ve looked through the forums for previous comments about this topic, but much of what I found was from 2008. I’m hoping there are some new thoughts/ideas about how to heat a garage space for woodworking in winter. I live in Northern Colorado and my single car garage is moderately insulated. Has anyone used one of those Mr. Heater L...

Bench top drill press dimensions - 3 replies

Hey there. I’m looking to add an 8” or 10” bench top drill press to my work space. I’m pretty limited with regard to space, so 10” is about as big as I can go. Would someone who owns an 8” or 10” drill press be kind enough to take basic measurements of the tool and report back on the dimensions? Mostl...

Catching up in a big way - 11 replies

OK, so first allow me to apologize. Last winter I wrote about a bench I was going to make, beginning with a maple butcher block top I salvaged from a flea market kind of situation. Then I fell of the planet. Until today. Sorry. I was really grateful for all the feedback and comments I got for my project and I fully intended to post photos ...

Power tool buying philosophy - 39 replies

Hey fellas (and ladies too, if any are present!), I wonder about my tool-buying philosophy. Like most, I have limited funds so I do a lot of research before I buy. I feel goofy saying it, but $100 is a moderate investment to me. $500 dollars is a once-every-three-years kind of purchase, so I try to make my choices good ones. I spend a lot ...

Help cutting a 3.25" maple bench top - 13 replies

Hi there, I’m an amateur sawdust maker, new to this forum. I can usually figure out any trouble I run into, but I’m stumped on this one: I have a 60” x 21” butcher block top made of maple and it’s 3.25” thick. I want to cut the width to 54”, but I’m not sure what the best approach is. I can use my circ saw and guide, but that means I’ll...
