  1. Zero Clearance Insert with replaceable panel

    Someone saw my zero clearance insert and asked me for some info on it, and some pics. So here it is. This particular plate is designed to fit my Ridgid TS3640, but clearly you can modify it to fit any table. The build is pretty simple and straightforward. First, I selected a piece of 1/2" MDF...
  2. ZCI from a ZCI

    A couple years back I picked up one of the Leecraft ZCI's and have loved it ever since. It fits my tablesaw perfectly and the adjustment screens make sure I get it dead level. However, at ~$25 a pop it would get expensive to have one for each blade, especially if you think about a dado stack...
  3. Toy truck: le camion de Papy Jean

    I found a plan in a french magazine called "Le Bouvet" (october 1987 or so…). This plan was given by a reader, called Papy Jean, who had made this truck several times. I really enjoyed doing two of these trucks for my 2yo twins two years ago. I am currently doing three of them for my nephews.
  4. Butternut Bench

    I saw this slice of Butternut at a wood carvers show and it sort of talked to me. So I bought it and by the end of the weekend I had made this bench along with trying a few new things like through tenons with a chisel and trying to figure out how to finish something with a live edge. I wound...
  5. Hickory and walnut coffee table

    Took wife to lumber store and she saw this hickory laying in what looked like the burn pile and talked me into taking it home. After lots of epoxy and sandpaper we have a coffee table.
  6. Walnut Coffee Grinder

    My wife loves coffee and one day touring the local antique stores I saw an old vintage coffee grinder. I thought that would be nice for her but thought I could make a new one. This is made from walnut with about 7 coats of wipe on Poly. The grinder mechanism I forged from molten ingots of solid...
  7. Jig Box

    I took my birthday money to Woodcraft and got a dado set and this jig. This was my first woodworking project with my Rigid TS3650. I love it! It may be some time before I start on dovetails! I drove a 1/4 dowell down each corner and it's not going anywhere. The jig is precision extruded and...
  8. mirror & flower pot stand

    I think it was stained ash :)these tulips were one of the first carvings I made…
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I think I just got a great deal on a ridgid table saw. It is the ts3650 and i just finished assembling it. I got it this morning at HD for 274$ I do have a couple questions for other owners 1. is it normal for the blade guard to twitch when the saw is turned on? 2. the blade it came with seems...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So, last week I bought a slightly used Ridgid TS3650. I got a pretty good deal on it and even got some extra parts with it. Now this is the first table saw I've ever owned, so I am looking for some tips on setting it up and maintaining and caring for it. So anything that will help make sure I...
  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am looking at this Ridgid Table Saw on Craigslist. Its about 2 hours away and the owner wants $300 firm for it. I thought it was the TS3650, and that it might be worth it with all the good reviews, but the roller base doesn't match any that I've seen in the TS3650 pictures, and he swears its...
  12. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I just purchased a Leecraft ZCI for my new(used, but new to me) TS3650. I noticed the Leecraft does not have a countersunk screw hole to secure it to the table like the OEM insert does. Even though the Leecraft has front and side adjustment screws that allow it fit snug, I'm concerned that it...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am setting out on a large project list for the house, and some much needed hobby work, so naturally, I need to upgrade my old saw. Granted, my old saw is a Skil portable TS that I have had for about 5-7 years, and have only built wood racks for storage, and small, rough storage cabinets...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I just purchased a Ridgid TS3650 that is in great shape, but it doesn't have the blade guard and spreader support? I called Ridgid and they said they don't make that part anymore. Does anyone know where I could purchase one or have one they would be willing to sell me?
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So there's a used TS3650 for sale for $100. From what I've read on here and other sites it's a solid saw. The tops in good shape and runs. Haven't sees it yet. I have a Vega fence that I'd install on it. So not worried about the stock one. My main concern is this saw being over 10 years old and...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    After reading a lot of information about table saws for the past few months, and I still feel that I know pretty little, I found a used RIGID TS3650 for sale. I felt like it was a good deal and worth the two-hour drive (four hours total) to check it out. I asked if power was available to check...
  17. Blogs
    Found It I've been in the market for a new table saw for a while, but I haven't done much about it. Life has pulled me in different directions and finding the time to think about a table saw purchase has been far from important. However, recently things have changed. With the birth of my first...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Ok guys, I know, I know, shouldn't happen, but there are some blade pits in my rip fence. I DIDN'T DO IT. I bought the saw like that, never really affected performance much but I have noticed lately that wood gets kinda hung up on the pits and its more irritating than anything. I'm not much...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Well… As some of you may know, I've been looking for a used table saw to upgrade my aggravating old craftsman 113. After watching craigslist, estate sales, auctions, etc. for months, I finally found something good (or so I thought). A small local cabinet shop was closing and selling off their...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey guys…I've spent some time searching, but wanted to hear some firsthand experience opinions. I'm looking at buying a used table saw, either the Ridgid TS3612 or Ridgid TS3650. Any preference one over the other?
