I Like My New Bedrock - 1 reply

I picked up this Stanley Bedrock 605 for about 80 bucks last week along with a nice little smoother and a #7 jointer. All I have to say is I love my new bedrock. I still haven’t gotten around to tuning the other two. I’ll post some better pictures here pretty soon.

Another TS Find (Rockwell/Delta) - 6 replies

Ok, I know I just got a Ridgid 3650, but there is an older Delta/Rockwell Homecraft Model 9 for sale, but I don’t know anything about this saw. It appears to resemble a small Unisaw or something like that. It’s only a hundred dollars. What do y’all think?

Almost Gloat Worthy New Table Saw - 14 replies

Well I finally bit the bullet and bought a new, to me, table saw. I saw a listing on CL for a Ridgid 3650 for 200 bucks. I went a couple of days later to check it out and it was in damn near pristine condition. Everything was there and the seller also threw in a dado and zero clearance insert, and a crosscut sled. I’m ridiculously excited ...

Another Ridgid 3650 Question - 7 replies

I found a Ridgid 3650 on CL for what seems like a good deal ($200) however when I called the owner about it he said that when you are adjusting the blade angle from 45 degrees to 90 that it may take some slight over or under adjustment for it to actually be at 90 degrees. He thought that there might be something loose underneath but hasn’t...

So I saw this post on Craigslist and thought it was a pretty darn cool old table saw, but I don’t know if it would be worth my time to make it a usable TS. What do y’all think?
