Hi-I'll introduce myself later after finding out if this is, indeed, the forum for beginning idiots that I really need. You'll see what I mean in a moment.
I'm older and permanently disabled. I am very limited physically due to nerve impairment but can do things that I enjoy for an hour, or so, before I can't any longer. Fly fishing is one that I know , the other is new to me but I've always wanted to make little, simplistic, wood working projects. What may take you a few days may take me months but that's kind of the point for me. Should have done all of this in the intro!!
Anyway, I went into extreme debt this past week and bought 7 quite nice DeWalt power tools and one Skil circular saw. My stupid question finally: the portable DeWalt table saw, like the miter saw, is 10". I wanted to rip a 2x4 on edge but can't quite do it with the 10". I can reverse it but I'll make it sloppy and the one tool I kept changing my mind about was an electric planer. Can I put a 12" blade on the the 10" saw temporarily and have room for it to work within the saw? I'm pretty sure that I can't but this is only the first of many such questions so get used to it please! lol Thanks, alan
