  9. General Routing
    I'm not sure where to put this thread since none of the major topic areas really fit so I figure this is the best place to start. So, I was using my 618 in my table the other day and had the speed setting on 5. about mid-way through the piece I was routing, I heard a pop from the router and...
  10. Tools and Woodworking
    I picked up a 10 inch Ohio Forge (RIP) benchtop table saw. I finally got the motor to align, but the screws controlling tilt and elevation are kicking my behind all over the place. I can't seem to find anyone with a manual, and there are no pictures of any to be found. I would REALLY...
