Smile building work stations

Hey Boricua got a good idea for your router top. I'm making when this weather clears 2 work stations for my car port. One is going to have my planer and jointer on one. The other my miter saw and router table set up. What I intend to do is take the table that you sold me and incase it with 2 layers of plywood like an in lay. I'll be sure to send pictures when it is done. Got my new rybi 10" folding table saw makes more room for me . Does anyone have one I want some input on. Tell me if it is a flop or a good machine. Had it for a month and half did'nt even put the wood to it yet.

Hey Glenmore,

Wow, yeah send some pics! It's going to be busy for many of us woodworkers when the weather clears. Can't wait myself! Yeah, I figured that you would come up with a good plan for the table top. I'm looking forward to the seeing the pictures like everyone else here. Pictures are nice instead of having to explain it all. Awright, later...

This is my first post. I saw that you have a rybi 10 folding tabel. My co-worker has one and he loves it. It came with a cross cut sled. I thought that was pretty cool. If it is the same saw that I think it is there is a forum just for that type of saw. I believe it is BT3central.com.

Glenmore,

I have the exact saw you are talking about and have used it extensively for almost a year now. I am very pleased with it. I would say it is one very well designed tool and it sure saves a lot of space in a small workshop. Just be sure you spend time with the fence before each cut and make sure you are square. It lacks a tiny bit in that department and I may opt for an upgraded fence when I have a chance. Other than that, this saw is a great value for the investment and about as good as anything in it's range. It is quiet, smooth, and so easy to move around and store. I am suprised so few have really discovered it yet for what it is.

Bob N. I was looking at the fence on it what and where can you get an up grade fence for it do you have any suggestions. I still have my craftman 10" table saw I upgraded that fence and it's not quite right. That saw was my dad's always had a problem with it I built a sled for it and it pinch every time I would finish a cut. The model ryobi is a BTS20R I'm going to through my first dust through it on Monday. Can't wait.

Glenmore, Call Sears Parts department and order the manual for the Craftsman saw. It has detailed instructions on how to adjust everything to get good quality cuts.

Thanks Mike I have the manual. Before I even got it we had sears techman come up and check it out. What I did was took the guide fence of and drill new holes to extend the rails them self and worked like a charm. Now I have another problem. The new ryobi Bts20r is giving me problems I hope Lt. Ball and Bob N. can help me out I love this saw tried it out yesterday I'm really impressed with it but the problem I have with it is I can't raise the blade all the way up with having to tilt the blade it seems to bind on me I've checked all the adjustment screws that hook up to the knobs they seem fine if you can't help me then Tuesday I'm taking it back to HD for a exchange. Hope you can help me out of a jam.

Glenmore,

Sorry I did not see your post until now.

I had the exact same problem with mine when I got it untill I embarassingly found packing material I had over looked still in the blade area. You will need to turn the machine over and look closely to find it, but it IS in there. Once removed, I had no further problem whatsoever

Also be sure to adjust your sliding guide rule per the instructions for accuracy purposes. Mine was off nearly 3/8 out of the box, but it is dead on now.

Thanks Bob I was planning to look there a little closer tomorrow. Hope that it's it. Darn good little machine though and suprisingly quiet. Thanks for the help I'll tell you how it goes.
