    Dado blades

    Have used a 6" set on my 10" radial arm saw for years...you never really cut deep dados so the price savings is worth is. In addition, the 6" set will have a slower tooth velocity.....may get less tearout with a less than optimally sharpened set.

    SawStop Demo

    Saw a demo last night of the SawStop system up at Woodworkers Source here in Tucson....hugely impressed!!!! Though I've seen video, when you see it live it really hits home....did a fast crosscut and then tried the same crosscut with a raw hotdog on the piece of wood....man oh man...that blade stopped instantly! You could barely see a nick in the dog...if it were a finger you might need a band-aid..... Sounds like a 0.25 or 0.380 when that blade stops, but it stops in 5 milliseconds.....airbag takes about 20 milliseconds to inflate.........replacements cartridges around about $70. Anyone looking at a new saw should consider one of these........

    SawStop Demo

    I would believe the insurance companies would really push these due to the increased level of safety and reduced liability....we said the same thing last night- that these saws would be a perfect fit for schools and clubs...anywhere you might have operators with different levels of experience.

    SawStop Demo

    they are not cheap, but a trip to the ER and the possibility of having a shortened finger or thumb might well be worth it!! As it was explained to us, the saw was designed from the inside out so the trunnion and all the internals are more heavy duty than many other saws.........I neither have the space nor deep enough wallet so will continue to use my many-years-old radial arm saw....

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!


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.


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.



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.
