Tablesaw and Jig problem
Hi to all,
I am new to this forum. I've been working with wood for quite a while but only out of necessity (you know, shelves and book cases and such).
My first big tool purchase was a Tablesaw about a year ago. It was the least expensive I could find, unforunately (Rona brand). I say unfortunately because I've recently bought a tablesaw mitre jig (not cheap for my taste, but maybe I'm the one that is cheap). Low and behold the guide on the jig and the rail on the tablesaw do not match.
The guide is 3/4" and the rail is 5/8" or so, so I took it upon myself to widen the rail using my dremel.
(I may have the terms mixed up, is rail what you call the slot on the tablesaw or is it called a guide)
Anyway I got it to 3/4" but now the jig does not slide as smoothly as I would like (and I'm not that fussy).
I'm hoping someone has some useful suggestions.
I don't really want to buy a new tablesaw because the one I have serves me just fine. And I do want to use the jig on it.
