MicroJig BladeClean Saw Blade and Router Bit Cleaning System Review by Jeff Fleisher I have reviewed previous MicroJig products and recently had the opportunity to work with their new BladeClean system. BladeClean is a self-contained system to clean table saw circular blades and router bits. Many woodworkers do not clean their saw blades and router bits because it can be tedious and time consuming. They let grime build up on the teeth and bit edges which makes the edge cu...

Great miter gauge but not without issue

Great miter gauge but not without issue

05-21-2022 11:52 PM by ic3ss | 10 comments »

I’ve had this miter gauge for a while and I’ve generally liked it really well, save for one thing: The nylon expansion discs don’t really work very well. Too much slop in the miter slot allowing it to move around too much. The problem: Incra made the milled recess exactly the same diameter as the expansion discs, and when you put in the countersunk screw that is supposed to push the disc apart, it can’t because one half of the disc is locked in by the milled rece...

TSG-FDC Overarm dust collector: Poorly designed hood—no better than the standard

TSG-FDC Overarm dust collector: Poorly designed hood—no better than the standard

05-15-2022 03:12 AM by Sark | 4 comments »

The standard included blade guard works just as well as the expensive add on dust collector hood as far as dust collection is concerned. From the SawStop manual: “The design of the blade guard creates such a powerful airstream that it effectively removes dust even without a vacuum system connected.” But’s that’s a quote about the standard included blade guard with a measly 1.25” port. Too bad this advanced design doesn’t apply to expensive add-on overarm dust collection sold by SawStop tha...

Good Entry in the Dado Market

Good Entry in the Dado Market

03-19-2022 04:07 PM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I did a video review and full test of the new Sawstop dado blade. I plan to do a long term update to see how the blade and case holds up. As of today, it’s a 4-1/2 star blade. Video review… https://youtu.be/M5ILYtXDK1M I have dozens of dado blades in the shop and can compare this dado stack to the Dewalt 7670, Infinity Dadonator, Whiteside Plus by Dimar, Forrest Dado King, Ridge Carbide North Woods Dado Master, among others. Hope it proves useful.

Dont Buy

Dont Buy

03-16-2022 02:44 PM by Winstondryfly | 14 comments »

This insert was terrible. I purchased the insert so I could cut a 45 Deg. angle cut with my saw and not open the kerf on my factory insert. I used a thick piece of wood as scrap over the blade to keep the insert in place while I lifted the blade to make the first kerf. The insert lifted approximately a 1/32 of an inch when I lifted the blade, and the Infinity product touched the blade setting off the brake and destoning the blade. I talked to Infinite’s customer service and they were incredib...

SawStop Job Site Saw Zero Clearance Insert

SawStop Job Site Saw Zero Clearance Insert

01-14-2022 02:04 AM by Karson | 11 comments »

I ran into (really Slid into) a table saw blade. Some scrap cutoffs were sliding toward a running table saw blade and I went to sweep the pieces away before they cam flying back at me. Well I stopped them but sacrificed some flesh and bone for the privilege of getting them out of the way. I decided to purchase a SawStop saw, but being 80 years old I didn’t want to invest in the big cast iron models. So I purchased the Job Site Version. It’s on wheels and moveable and 1/2 of a b...

Wixey WR-700 Digital Fence Readout On SawStop CNS Contractor Saw--36" T-Glide Fence

Wixey WR-700 Digital Fence Readout On SawStop CNS Contractor Saw--36" T-Glide Fence

01-05-2022 05:14 PM by jayseedub | 7 comments »

UPDATE I still love this thing. 6/9/22. It’s reliably accurate down to the hundredth/thousandth?? When I set it for 3.000 that’s what I get, every time. Wish I didn’t have to bump-bump-bump it—but I was doing that before without the benefit of pure accuracy, which I now have. Pretty amazing in the time it saves me tweaking pieces—each one comes off perfectly. I received this Digital Readout (DRO) as a gift this Christmas and just installed it about a wee...

Wixey WR-700 Lighted TS DRO with 60" range & 0.005" resolution

Wixey WR-700 Lighted TS DRO with 60" range & 0.005" resolution

10-31-2021 03:17 AM by Madmark2 | 14 comments »

Was on a different thread and I saw this Wixey TS DRO. I already have an Incra on the TS and it works perfectly. The only drawback is that the crosshair is far over to the right and, for my eyes anyway, it’s a bit hard to resolve the 1/32” lines. Incra cross hair. The Wixey WR-700 brings an easy to read, lighted digital readout to the table saw. Those familiar with my work know I use DRO’s on most everything. I have digital angle cube, digital 8” caliper, 6”...

Tired of making new clearance inserts

Tired of making new clearance inserts

10-26-2021 08:48 PM by awsum55 | 16 comments »

I have been making and repairing my zero clearance inserts way too often. I even have damage to my sleds from the blade vibrating. I also notice that sometimes on a 45º cut the 90º part of the cut is not straight. My table saw is a 5hp Unisaw and I make sure everything is set up correctly. I decided to buy the Blade Stiffener from Forrest and I couldn’t be happier. I use it with my Forrest Woodworker II thin kerf blade. Actually I use it on all my blades because it makes a differ...

DeWalt 8 Inch Dado Stack

DeWalt 8 Inch Dado Stack

06-29-2021 01:50 PM by stevejack | 14 comments »

I had had it with the last 4 Retail store Dado stacks over the last year. All of them were awful. Seems the more expensive they were the worse they cut. SO I decided to pull the trigger on a Ridge Carbon Set for $400. AT that time they were out of stock. UGH! So I watched some more Youtube vids and ran across some about the the DeWalt 8 inch set for $150. Every one seems to love them. So I bought one. Finally used it yesterday. WOW It really did a great, clean, sharp job. NOT perfect b...
