  • Youngest Daughter Heading to MEPS

    What to check on a used table saw?

    Going to evaluate a table saw for the theater group tomorrow.  What things would you check out before plunking down the money?  I plan to power it on, make a few cuts, check runout on the blade (bent arbor), make sure there's no burning smell from the motor, and give it a visual check inside.  Probably won't do a formal nickel test, but will check for vibration.   We are behind on the next set build and it will be a couple more weeks before we get the lease on the site, materials and t

    Education

    Education One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor. Research Do you love researching? Do you like to write about subjects in a factual non-biased style?
