I watched the video and was awed. Went out and tried the setup that was suggested. Cleaned the saw, did the adjustments and viola. The best sawing I have ever done. No nothing, no drift , just straight cuts. Just try it and you will be amazed.

The video is 35 minutes long but worth it.

That dude is really good. Did he warn you about trying to slice a ham?? I still laugh when I think about your post.
Great video.

Unfortunately he did not mention ham.

I used the video to set up my Grizzly saw after I pulled it out of the box and put the extension block on it. Perfectly straight cuts immediately, including being able to pull off a 1/16” veneer piece from some walnut. I was quite pleased.

I use this method after watching the video. My ‘94 14” delta is perfect when set up this way.

I can slice 1/16th inch veneers that are of consistent thickness from a 8 foot board.

No drift at all with a sharp blade.

I couldn’t recommend this video any more than I do.

Have your say...
