Bench Dog Accessories

06-01-2019 10:49 PM by hairy | 2 comments »

I bought my ‘89 Unisaw 11 years ago. It did not have a bladeguard , splitter or any safety equipment. Among the first accessories I purchased was the Bench Dog featherboard. I use it a lot. A couple years ago I bought an Ark Shark guard, for safety as much as dust collection. I use it as much as I can. The Bench Dog push stick is great for when the fence is near the guard. It looks kinds flimsy, but it is pretty stout. I always thought the Blade Loc was a gimmick. I got one at a y...

Worthwhile upgrade

Worthwhile upgrade

03-27-2019 12:54 PM by Jarrhead | 5 comments »

I wasn’t going to spend the money. I figured from the other reviews I had read, and the video I watched that the VSC Tools T-square fence would be an improvement over the Shop Fox Biesemeyer style fence that came with my Grizzly G1023 saw. However, I wasn’t convinced the improvement would justify the price. I was wrong. Shortly after I bought the tablesaw I purchased a set of extended rails to increase the cutting capacity to the right of the blade. But then I had a set of sh...

Good splitter solution for saws without a riving knife

Good splitter solution for saws without a riving knife

01-02-2019 06:54 PM by Mike_D_S | 13 comments »

I’ve actually had this for about over a year new in the package, but shortly after I got this I also picked up a Betterley Tru Cut insert which has an aluminum body and a pre cut slot for a splitter preventing the use of the Micro Jig system, so the MJ Splitter got put in a drawer. Recently I was cutting some white oak and was getting some binding. I have a Steel City cabinet saw and it uses a bulky splitter/blade guard. For a couple of reasons, I don’t use the factory splitt...

Could be Better

Could be Better

10-22-2018 03:46 PM by HankLP | 6 comments »

I really like the Grizzly G0771 table saw, and have used it for several years now. I was pleased to discover that Grizzly came out with an insert for the G0771, however, this rating lost two stars for the following: 1) The insert sits 0.020” higher than the original insert which means the leveling screws have to be readjusted when swapping the inserts. The ZC Inserts I make have oversized holes that fit over the screw heads. This allows a thicker edge on the insert, and the leveling...

Gravity assisted cross cut mobile stand!

Gravity assisted cross cut mobile stand!

10-17-2018 03:15 AM by Holbs | 0 comments »

Here you will see a 32 degree angled mobile stand to help with cross cutting large panels.Just kidding :) Just me wiggling it into place.For longest time, I used a mini pallet jack and DIY stands for my Powermatic 66 and Unisaw. With the PM66 off to a better home, only the Unisaw remains with me. I never liked the saw being raised 4-5” higher due to the DIY stand but put up with it, til now. With upcoming outfeed assembly table, I wanted the saw as low as possible. Way too many ric...

Contractor Saw PALS-  Should Have Done This Sooner

Contractor Saw PALS- Should Have Done This Sooner

09-25-2018 06:08 PM by fivecodys | 8 comments »

After reading several reviews and watching every video I could find, I decided to try the Contractor-saw PALS alignment system.Previously I was using a bar clamp to pull the rear trunnion into alignment as I tightened the bolts.It was a hit and miss process and I really didn’t have a good way to measure my results. I coupled the PALS with this jig I found posted here on Lumberjocks: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/96896 The PALS do exactly what they claim to do. The instructions ...

If you want a great miter gauge

If you want a great miter gauge

07-20-2018 07:25 PM by Jacksdad | 7 comments »

I got the Kreg Miter gauge for my birthday, it’s great. I taught a segmented turning class at Woodcraft and I was going to show how to fix if your segments are not perfect, 1 cut 16 pieces and put them together and no gap, so much for that idea. It comes perfect from the factory, if you aren’t getting perfect angles your saw needs adjusting. It cuts accurately to a tenth of a degree, I highly recommend it.

Taking my table saw to the next level: Correct segments straight off the saw!

Taking my table saw to the next level: Correct segments straight off the saw!

02-09-2018 11:19 PM by Tennessee | 16 comments »

OK, I got into segmented bowls, vessels, and vases this year as a new product for my galleries. I did the wooden sled thing, and it worked, sort of, with four different angles developed for the sled. But after about 100 cuts, I started to notice that things were working their way out of true, and decided that the wooden sled route was just not going to cut it for me.After much debate in my mind, and my wife asking when am I going to pull the trigger, I finally settled on the Incra 1000HD Mi...

Best Option I've Found

Best Option I've Found

01-07-2018 01:41 PM by EarlS | 20 comments »

I read an article written by a hand surgeon for Popular Woodworking. “In the hundreds of table saw injuries I’ve seen, I’ve yet to see an amputation from a table saw with an appropriate blade guard and splitter. There have never been many good reasons to remove the guard; now with better-designed saws, guards and riving knives, there are even fewer. I’ve seen woodworkers injured on the “backstroke” as they bring a hand back over an unprotected blade after a cut, those who didn’t see ...

Jess Em Clear-Cut Precision Stock Guides Do What They're supposed to

Jess Em Clear-Cut Precision Stock Guides Do What They're supposed to

12-08-2017 02:33 AM by NeophyteGrant | 20 comments »

As a relatively new woodworker who has spent some time investing in new equipment the past couple months, I have a bit of a backlog of items I’d like to share impressions of. There are a couple of Jess ‘Em products at the top, particularly these TS rip guides, which were my first Jess ‘Em purchase. Fit and Finish: the finish of the aluminum pieces is outstanding. I’ve had them up in action on my SuperCoolTools Fence (these were a custom fit model with according t...
