    How detrimental (to the blade) is it to cut aluminum t-track on a TS using a carbide tipped blade? The blade in question is a Freud 50 tooth blade. Will resharpening said blade later restore it to its original glory?
  2. Lathe SteadyRest

    My neighbor asked me to turn a cane for him, and I said sure, no prob…...I've never done anything this long. It's like a gigantic pen.. Anyway, he brought me a 3×3" piece o Poplar. I split it in half, put a 3/8 piece o Walnut in the middle, and while it was gluing, I thought, hummmmm, I'm gonna...

  5. Getting Cross

    My wife, Avril, suggested that I make a cover for the font in our local church, so I knocked up this pretty simple version using some scrap hardwood floorboarding from a friend, and turned a piece of some other wood (but I can't remember what!) It was in the church for about a year before...

    Hello, I've read the postings for a few years now but it was only earlier this year that I became a member and since then I have learned so much from all of you… Thank you! Just a bit about myself… it was back in the 70's (sixth grade) when I pushed my first piece of wood passed a table saw...

    I'd like to start making box joints. I am without a router table at this time so I have to use a table saw. I believe this will necessitate the purchase of a new blade that can create flat bottomed kerfs. I don't want to spend a ton of money, so I'd like some suggestions as to a good "value"...

    Hey folks, So my wife is out of town for a couple weeks. I can buy some tools and not have to sneak them in under dark of night! :) I stopped at the big Orange Box store tonight (still like it better than the blue box, but it's 75 miles away :( ), and I'm looking at 10" saw blades...

    I am in the market to upgrade my table saw blade. I currently have a Ridgid 50-tooth blade that cuts adequately, but splinters plywood. I have a 100 tooth ply blade, but if the upper-level Freud or WW 2 blade will give me chip-free cuts in plywood I will get one soon. (I accidently cut mt...

    Click here for the link. I made a camelcamelcamel.com notification for this blade a while ago to let me know if the price dropped below $90. Good price, free shipping and no tax.

    I have a 20 year old Jet Contractor TS with a Forrest WWII of the same age. Everything was okay until I purchased a new Freud full kerf combo blade (red coating). I went to install the new blade and now I can't get the arbor nut to tighten. I hold the blade stationary with a piece of scrap wood...

    Working on a new project and discovered that my current saw blade (ATB) style is leaving some undesireable material after the cut. The left over material resembles a small triangle, the same shape of area that the ATB doesn't touch. I could use a chisel and clean up the left over material but...
