Bought a new (to me) table saw, didn’t come with handles for blade adjustment – made some new push sticks while I was at it and a basic cross-cut jig. Also made a jointer-type jig that works fairly well using the fence.

I love the horsepower ratings that Craftsman used. I have an old 22 gallon compressor that has a 5 HP sticker on it. I’m not sure what crazy test could have drawn enough current to come up with that figure.

It reminds me of the old Joe Isuzu commercials where Joe would say things like “this Isuzu goes 250 MPH,” and the subtitle on the screen would say “downhill, in a hurricane.”

Have fun with the saw.
