clean it, adjust it

Recommended Posts

WOW! I just thought I might take a few minutes to clean/wax my table saw top.  Okay while I was standing there I realized the rails for the fence had dropped a bit. Adjusted it - 4 bolts and its DONE.


I have to say, I apparently had my head up my _ _ _ for the last 3 years.  I've been fighting the fence to get back ON the table - it's easy enough with a shop-fox fence and a Griz table saw.


Moral of the story - CLEAN IT, WAX IT, ADJUST IT and life is good again.

Well said John. It is those little things we just don't think we can stop long enough to do that get us.


 


I like the motto.

I bought a Jet 14" band saw, one year old and hardly used from Craig's list. Got a really good price too, $200. The guy said he got it new to resaw boards. It simply would not do a good job. He bought special blades, blade lube and ceramic guides.


( I got all that too ) I took it home and got the set up instructions out and went step by step to adjust all setting as directed.


I found that not one of the settings was correct and nearly all were not locked in, most were loose. No wonder it never sawed good. It resaws perfectly for me and I am very happy with it.


 I always try to check adjustments and alignments at the start of each new project on my table saw and band saw. Wood is too expensive to make mistakes caused by my neglect.

Nothing tickes me off more that going into the final stages of a project and having an inportant matching wood piece get messed up because I made a mistake or didn't have my saw/drill/planer/etc adjusted right. Being retired should mean you have plenty of time to do it right,..................... unless you forget

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

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.
