  1. Just a heads up if you are thinking of buying a Table Saw in the near future.
  2. I searched for Harvey table saw and had 0 results. I was wondering if anybody here has one. I just bought one today and it hasn’t shipped yet. I have watched a lot of reviews on YouTube and all are very good. I bought the table saw with the router extension table and dust collection box for the router. The only table saw I have owned so far is my wife’s dads from the 1960’s that is around 18” square. This one should be a big difference.
  3. Government regulation will change woodworking forever from your garage to the largest users of table saws. I am not taking any shots at SAWSTOP if you like one buy one but soon big brother will make you buy a SawStop or something just like it . This video hit YouTube less than one hour ago. calabrese55
  4. I just saw this Delta Unisaw listed on Facebook Marketplace. It looks identical to mine and mine is a 1947 build. Great saw and the seller is asking $350. It is currently wired for 110 but that is easy to fix and you would want to upgrade the fence. For $500 you could have a heck of a saw. Located in Ft. Wayne Indiana. I love the art deco of the switch plate.
  5. Most likely you're going to need an Fb account https://www.facebook.com/reel/2605323562960720 Found a YouTube link
  6. well, been wanting to replace an older saw (left tilt) i got rid of when xfering to home shop, found i enjoyed using one on occassion, well one popped up on offer up, was in sorta dismal shape, left outside, ect. so after a week or so of dickering, and working it hard, i managed to make a deal today and brought home the saw. i will need to find an cast iron extention top, and a new mag switch, saw is a unisaw. left tilt 230v 3 hp, unit single phase, plan is to have both saws in same line right tilt on left with table space between and left tilt way out on right, to save footprint space in shop. just need to find some parts, clean it up some, some lube and lotsa woodworker love and kind words, , i'll have to dig deep for those. heres some pics of the albatross which will take up some more of my precious time. happy hump day to those that subscribe Rj in Az
  7. It appears that Festool has come out with a table saw, well a small one as it fits in a Systainer? Hard to get too much data on it. May not be available in US or Canada and might have some SawStop technology. Cordless job site saw? https://www.misterworker.com/en-us/festool/18v-4ah-cordless-table-saw-csc-sys-50-ebi-basic-576820/75577.html
  8. is an automated table saw fence. It's only $1249!
  9. I stumbled across this fellow and love what he does for DIY shop implements. I thought I'd post it here to give some folks inspiration, this fellow is brilliant in his planing. Have fun! Also, you can go to his YouTube channel and see how he builds this masterpiece, and many of his other jigs and holders and home made this and that. Here is his channel: Paoson Woodworking, he is a luthier like our own @Woodman. One thing I noticed about Woodman and other luthier's is they are very meticulous and clean with their work, and it makes sense, to build intricate pieces like violins and such, requires a meticulous mindset and surroundings. Also, here is Paoson's website, looks like he'll sell you the plans for the masterpiece work station. He also has quite a few freebies too!
  10. Learn something new every day, a Shopsmith table saw! I have also seen a Shopsmith traditional work bench too that looked pretty robust. Found this saw on the Shopsmith sales group on Facebook. The owner says this one has the under-table Radial Arm Saw capacity. Huh!!!! Who woulda thunk!
  11. From the album: The Patriot Woodworkers with Operation Ward 57 Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family for the Holidays - 2022

    The new Laguna Fusion line was developed for demanding woodworkers. Designed around quality components with an emphasis on superior dust collection enhanced by utilizing over/under collection & sealed bottoms. All models are equipped with a precision fence, plus the F2 & F3 feature the Hi/Low aluminum extrusion known from European saws. The hybrid fence on the Laguna Fusion offers the best of European and American fence features. This fence is NOT designed to be used on the LEFT side of the blade! Rail or tube on the LEFT side is provided only to make the ON/OFF switch position. Permanently lubricated bearings & Acme screws are part of the internal DNA. Fusion 2 is the true successor to the original Fusion Table Saw. The task was simple: make a saw that was more refined, more precise, and cleaner.
  12. I'm looking for advice and suggestions about how and where to sell. Do I refurbish, all or partial? What about shipping away from my location? How to price? I have my father's woodshop equipment bought in 1948 (have original invoices). Includes table saw, scroll saw, band saw, shaper, wood lathe, grinder, drill press, and belt sander, located in Washington State.
  13. Courtesy of Wood Magazine. Some good stuff if you are considering add ons. I was a bit surprised by the similarity of Rockler, Woodcraft, and Grizzly tenon jigs. They all look like knock-offs of my older Delta one (~25-30 years old) Even "Setup/Allignment Guages" [sic] Or maybe they meant alignment gauges Get The Most From Your Portable Tablesaw Wood.pdf
  14. Backstory: For various circumstances, I have not been to a yard/ garage sale for over 2-1/2 years and very few flea market rather in/out doors either. I have connected and become more proficient with on-line auctions, although I limit myself travel distance wise as well when a "Buyers Premium" is charged. One of the first I participated on was mid December 2019. Actually bidding opened in mid-November. I suppose the time of the year (just prior to Christmas), the weather, the over-whelming variety and amount of stuff (not so much in tools, as restaurant items, crafts items, flea market etc., etc.), lot types, sizes, location etc., held many back from bidding. Anyway a few items caught my attention especially near the end of auction close time. Anyways, I "won" a few items gloat worthy. From the pictures, you'll see items which were in an old (1880's), multi-story building which took up a full 1/2 city block within a small community in the county East of us about 25 miles away. Two days before auction item pick-up, we were blessed with 8-10" of snow. IIRC, I picked these up on the 17th of December. Since my trailer was under snow with temperatures hovering around 15*, at the last minute, I rented an enclosed 10' U-Haul trailer. The cost of it was $19.99 + taxes/6 hours but in the end, worth the added cost. My oldest grand-daughter had just come home from college for Christmas break so she got to help. That drove the cost some besides gas, since I felt compelled to feed her at Wendy's after we unloaded. I purchased everything shown from these photos. I did not travel to the site on Preview day (extra cost). Just so you know, I've already paid the price several times over for this "gloat" starting the next day after unloading. I was sick with the flu through Christmas that year. So two smaller tables, maple tops; IIRC one on the left is 42" L x 32" wide; right one, 48" L x 32" wide; both a full inch thick. both have cast iron bases The one on the left has a single turned pedestal from 4x stock; one on the right a larger built segmented pedestal (not shown); The next 3 tables are pretty much identical; nearly 8 ft long and IIRC, 38" wide. either a 4/4 or 5/4 thick tops. All I know these are HEAVY. Dumb me, in the haste to rent a trailer, clean out the back of the truck and get going, I forgot my moving dollies. Bad move because... ...this one we had to carry pretty much a half block plus from the far corner of the front of the building to the far corner to far rear corner; kid earned her Wendy's. This one never had a finish applied; short, long term plan is to make myself a genuine woodworking bench from it once I get a place to set/use it. All 5 tables were in one lot. I almost didn't bid on these for fear I would win. However, I did. Hope I didn't get burned too bad? Total cost with internet bid premium 59 cents. Next, there were a couple of Craftsman table saws. These were the only pictures. The one on the left I could tell was either an 8", 9" or perhaps even 10." That evidence was based on the aluminum ribbed table. Odds were good it was a direct drive vs a belt drive. From the pictures looked dirty but otherwise in pretty decent shape. The one on the right obviously is a 10." In fact, it looked to be the same era (1977-78) as mine, so cast iron, belt drive. I could see some rust on the saw table base, but if it went right, worse case would be a good parts mule for mine. Now, I didn't need one, let alone two table saws, but hey, since I was going anyway for the tables, placed a max bid of $15/ea; won both at $11/ea plus internet premium of $1.98/ea so all in on two table saws + 5 tables was $26.55. Seemed to come out OK even renting a trailer and eating out at Wendy's x2. For the rest of the story; see text below table saws. So once we dragged 5 tables and pieces/parts over 1/2 a city block and got them loaded, on to the table saws. The aluminum top turned out to be a 10" and better yet, real close to the loading door/dock. Rip fence, blade guard, wrenches, miter gauge, all there plus some random tools on top. Auction guy said, "it all goes with it. Easy load compared to those tables. Next up the old 10". It's in an adjoining room, way in the back and pretty dark. The only electrical/lights are from a couple portable generators and LOTS of extension cords. Fortunately I had brought tools and some H-F LED lights. Get to the saw...saw table is covered with all kinds of stuff...some chair bottom blanks, some maple glue ups, strips cut for glue ups, random tools besides a couple miter gauges, blade guard but no Craftsman rip fence? Oh well no big loss on a saw that era. All this is piled not only on the saw table, but also an extremely large, very dilapidated, rear and L/R extension tables made from deteriorating particle board. That seems strange until I step around to the front of the saw and "what to my wondering eyes should appear?" but a 52" Biesemeyer rip fence, in great condition, rails dirty, a little rusty, but very good over-all. Cha-ching... I no longer care that the cast iron top appears rusted beyond salvage...Auction guy again said, "it's all your's plus some other stuff over here." I was already exhausted feeling the flu and a fever coming on. It was about 10* outside, it was about 45 minutes until dark and auction load close but I moved & loaded stuff as if I was being chased by bears. The extension tables basically fell apart with a little beating. Didn't have to worry about cleaning up the mess b/c the building was going to be gutted. In one of the boxes was some more random stuff including an usual looking (to me) miter gauge. Then I realized what is must be for... Also in the sale was a Powermatic 66 Table saw; in very good condition; not sure if it was a 3 or 5 hp or single or 3 phase. It sold for a mere $255. That odd miter gauge...well it was for the PM...I gave it to the guy who brought his own single axle, tilt/rollback bed truck with a fork lift he used to load the saw. So that's how 2019 ended...well that and the respiratory flu over Christmas. Thanks for reading.
  15. I have spent some time this year reworking my shop arrangement. Started with a 60 amp service & this allowed me to move the compressor into an attached shed then hard piped it into the shop. Install a small dust system in the shed and connected my miter saw, belt/spindle sander & a port for my ROS. I passed on things to other people that could use them & got rid of things I haven't or won't need. Consolidated everything to the 3 walls in the shop. I realized during the process that walking around my work bench to get to the other side of the shop just wasn't working anymore, time to downsize & go mobile. The plan is to build a set up to house my table saw and router table in one mobile unit. I have had a good conversation with @Gunny about the do's & don'ts with regards to this set up, "Often suffer from paralysis by analysis in getting a project started" Thanks Gunny. I have the base started with some 4x4 that my Dad had stored, straight and dry. Cut some lap joints, dry fit & ready to screw and glue. Notches in the middle are for the uprights & the cuts were made, after the pics, on the end lap joints for the same.
  16. Worked on this while stuck at home. Two 4 X 8' - 3/4" sheets of plywood glued together. Self adhesive edging around the outside edge, several coats of floor quality polyurethane and on 300 lb. capacity wheels. Exact height for using it as an extension table for my table saw.
  17. Good morning fellow woodworkers, I have a delta tablesaw problem I need to fix and have received no feedback from Delta on the e-mail I sent them regarding my problem so I thought maybe you could help. I purchased a Delta model unisaw with a 10" dia. blade, 3 1/4 HP motor, 52" table, and a Biesemeyer fence system in 2005, model 36-812 with serial number 05A 95089 type 2. An unusual noise is produced sometimes as the blade is spinning down from use. This noise was produced since I purchased the saw, but I could never find the source of the noise, until recently. When cleaning the saw, I noticed score marks and flats that had formed on the shaft used to adjust the blade height of the saw. Upon further investigation, there is direct contact between the end of the belt pulleys used to drive the motor and the blade shaft. Apparently time was required for the flat spots to form on the shaft. Until this occurred, the root cause of the noise could not be identified. This contact only occurs when the blade height is set to 2 inches or above, which explains why the noise was inconsistent and was not made all the time. When the blade is set at a height lower than 2 inches, no noise is produced. I have attached a PDF file which has pictures to showing the exact condition I am referring to. Obviously this is not a safe condition and shouldn't be occurring. Has anyone else had this problem with their delta tablesaw? Anyone know what is causing this contact to occur and if it can be corrected? If so, how? Any advice would be appreciated. saw_hoffman_03-09-2020.pdf
  18. These have been out for awhile and came on sale a while back ,so I had to try them out. First picture is the way I usually run trim through the router table, and then the new way. I like the new ones, they do what they are advertised to do. Herb
  19. I have been using a Woodworker II for quite a few years and it has served me well. Well almost. I returned it to the factory for sharpening and they blew it. I sent it back and they did it again. Each time they left silver solder bubbles on the teeth they replaced. The saw blade has never been the same. Any way my subject is; If you was going to buy a good 10" combination table saw blade, what would it be? Would it be thin or thick cerf? I'd like to get it for a reasonable price too. I paid $120 for the old one and I would like to get a nice one for a lot less. Since sharpening is costly and may not come back sharpened properly I'd rather just buy a new on Your thoughts are appreciated
  20. I finally went and done it. My R4512 finally stopped making good cuts so I got a Grizzly. I am SOOOOOOO impressed with this saw. Came with out a scratch on it. Easy to set up (with help). The hardest part was getting it to my shop. It weighs 300 lbs in the box. Got an appliance dolly and a great big friend to help me move it. Made several cuts with it today. If you are thinking about an up grade, this is a really good deal.
  21. Do you always use your table saw guard? If not, what percentage of the times would you estimate you do you use it? My thoughts on this subject have changed over the years and I am wondering how others operate their saws.
  22. Twin Table saw Build Having been asked several times for more info about this older build I got a nod from @John Morris and began a write up for this. It is a crazy idea, I know. But I have method to the madness. This build was originally designed for a single saw and the storage below. The design was done while in Iraq so I had a lot of pages of drawings to sort through to get a working model. My Dad gave me the extra saw and I just adapted the design for the second saw. Why? Well the second saw on the far right has a ¼ dado stack in it. So when I need ¼ which is common I am all set and need only set the height of the blades. This also gives me almost 6 feet of cast iron surface. It did take some work to get the saws bolted together and some more work to square the saws to one another so one fence can be used and be square to both. The main unit is painted with aluminum color, then I used a plastic bag to dab black paint and some silver milk paint to get the textured dimensional look. 3 coats of lacquer (rolled on) finish it off. Entire unit including bottom is painted, not needed just did it. The drawers are colored by use, color aids memory and this thing has a lot of drawers. Having moved everything from where it was this helped get acquainted with the new locations. DC is gravity drop into 4 drawers, two on the front under the saw and two on the back under the motors. The reality was I could not get the storage I wanted AND have the shop DC or a onboard DC set up. So I had to decide what was more important, the storage side won. The entire unit is pre-wired for 220 if needed in the future, current set up is 110. Outlets under the table provide power when needed for sanders and such. Another outlet on the opposite side gives me a second place to plug things in if needed. Unit comes to 44 inches deep and 70 inches wide. Rather large and heavy but the steel frame is up to the task as well as 400 lb casters. 2 years of operation and nothing has collapsed. Doesn't mean I move the monster much, takes 2 people to move and control. The only thing I did not upgrade at the time of build is the extension table for the router. Another project later gave me some insights into the things I want out of the upgrade and as of today that is still in design mode. Sometime this lifetime I will get on it. I have more pictures of more details but leave those for questions or comments. This build could easily be a single saw build so for those wanting to make one, ask away how I did this or that. Total time on project 5 1/2 months. A lot of time and effort but having used this for 2 years it was worth it for the convenience and upgraded performance. Completed Unit May 2018 Drawers and inserts for organizing them Construction details Underside before adding plywood cover. The cover keeps things from getting jammed underneath and blocking it from moving.
  23. I've never seen a saw stop demo in person, but have seen a few videos and I was very impressed. However one question. If you have a saw stop, would you be more inclined NOT to use your guard? I know most guys don't anyway, but using it makes all cutting safer, especially on some of the more risky cuts and kick back risks too. Anyone have an opinion that owns one?
  24. I have an inherited table saw which came down from my grandpop, to my late father, and now to me. My dad always talked about how he wanted to fix up the old saw. For the last few months I have tried to do my pops proud. I have replaced all the bearing, rebuilt the motor, add a new belt, put the PALs alignment system on it, built a crosscut sled, stiffened and lengthened the rip fence, tonight I finished the out-feed table, and put it on a roll around base. The hanging motor threw me for a loop for a little bit. I wanted an out-feed table that was quickly and easily removed and I figured it out, it's even adjustable. See attached. As fun as I had building it with my dad there in spirit I can no longer put off the wife's honey do list. Please let me know what you think.
