    Thanks for letting me join the forum. I consider myself more handy than an expert (or even amateur) woodworker. Over the years, I've dabbled with making pens, etc. However, I haven't invested in the tools to get more serious. So, I just bought a Bosch 1617EVSPK router. I am working on a router...

    Getting my Craftsman Table Saw Rip fence parallel to the blade has been a constant aggravation and always with mixed success. I have seriously contemplated replacing the Rip fence many times, but every time, I dismiss the idea because I’d rather apply the $$$ towards a new saw. So until I can...

    Ok, I am back after a few weeks with yet another plea for help from my friends at Router Forum. You see, I have been busy these past few weeks and one of my projects is making a cross cut sled for my table saw. However, being Mr. Ridiculous and Mr. Perfection at the same time I have a dilemma...

    I recently inherited an older Craftsman table saw from my late father-in-law. The table is in good shape, the blade spindle is good, and the lift/tilt mechanism is also good. He had a newer Craftsman power-tool motor with it, but it was not attached and working. The saw has its original 2"...

    Hi Folks, I am drowning in dust, especially the router and table saw. The dust sent 2 shop vacs to the repair shop. So I purchased a Harbor Freight 2 HP collector. I then ran some searches for setting the collection duct-work, and connecting to the dust creators. I came up with a lot of clever...

    Has anyone seen the wood whisperer video on the VerySuperCoolTools extruded table saw fence. It's $250 complete and it looks real good to me. The VerySuperCoolTools site has details video to make your own so I plan on using my old welding skills to make my own. The 1 1/2" x 3" extrusion...

    Greetings and Merry Christmas to all. My Name is Scot. I'm a casual woodworker with the usual tools. I discovered this site when I was designing a router table to add to my Chraftsman table saw, I plan on using the table saw fence as the router fence too. I enjoy the information found on this forum.
  9. Table-mounted Routing
    I bought a Ryobi tablesaw this summer. It has a sliding panel that is cut out for a router or something- manual doesn't help. I could drill and countersink but don't want to endanger the integrity of the casting. I'm thinking about making a panel from an old piece of countertop, cutting it...

    Ridgid 4510 or 4512? I'm in the market for a solid table saw and I'm looking at both the 4510 and 4510 saws from Ridgid. Has anyone compared both the 4510 and 4512 directly? Aside from the obvious differences, I was wondering if anyone has had an opportunity to try both saws enough to develop...

    To start off, on a weekly basis I have been visiting my recycling center where I live. I always find useful junk for woodworking and my metal projects (just bought a Lincoln HD140 welder on Craigslist). I had noticed months ago in the corner of the property there was what seemed to be the...

    Do any of you find a Dado blade for your table saw necessary, or do you, like I use a router for all you dados? I've had a number of people recommend lately that I get a dado blade for my saw, but I've managed for all these years to do all my dados with a router. My saw is awesome, but I don't...

    HI, I'm Ketan. I'm shortly to be setting up my workshop from scratch and hope to use this site to find information on tool reviews / timber suppliers etc. At the moment, i'm leaning towards getting the Axminster TSCE-12R 305mm Table Saw so would be glad to hear anyone's opinion on it and in...
