    Hi there, new guy here. We are about to start building a house and I am going to build all of the cabinets for it. I recently found a Powermatic 66 from 1986 on Craigslist for $500. It's in OK shape, but needs full refurbishment. I took it apart and had problems with only one set of bolts. There...

    Hello, I recently got my hands on a 2002 Woodtek table saw, 109349 with a Grizzly 2Hp motor,H5386. It was in pieces when I got it and am struggling to put it together. Does anyone have a woodtek manual? I have attached a few pictures for you to see the current deconstruction. Any tips on how...

    So my father thinks it will be OK to rip down 2x4 lumber on a table saw, with the "4 in." side against the fence, into quarters. Hypothetically resulting in 4 skinny pieces that are about 4 inches wide and of any given length. Am I wrong that this sounds bad?

    I was setting up my Dewalt 7491RS table saw and while putting the fence on I dinged it against the side of the saw. Now there's a few small divots on the surface of the aluminum fence and it has very tiny sharp bits that I can feel as I run my hand over it. I'd like to smooth these down since...

    Been researching table saws for about a month now and right now I'm close to pulling the trigger on a Dewalt 7491RS. Reasons: Will need to work outdoors as my shed is only 15x7 so maneuvering large boards inside will be tough. Can accept Dado stacks Can eventually build infeed/outfeed tables...

    Whenever I take a rip cut both ends of the cut, about 1 1/2" from each end, are slightly above the rest of the cut. I get the same result if I use a 24 tooth rip blade or a 60 tooth blade. I have a Rigid contractor table saw. I checked the fence with a straight edge and it's perfectly flat...

    Hello, im new to the forum and I just got a new fence for my table saw and it has this aluminum bar across the top and I was wondering if somebody could tell me what its used for, cause I can't figure it out for the life of me. However, I am new to wood working.

    Hello, I just bought my first table saw. I wanted it to be a older Craftsman for nostalgic purposes and I found one on Marketplace for a good price. It's a 10" 2.5 HP model number 137.221960. I bought it knowing it was missing a few parts: rip fence, crank wheels, splitter, and the mitre...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and relatively new to woodworking, but I'm trying to get better and also trying to upgrade equipment so I can have a little more faith in the tools I use. I'll try to keep this brief, but I'm sure I'll ramble. I have had a Ryobi table saw for several...

    Hey all, my first and only tablesaw that belonged to my grandfather let out the magic blue smoke a few days ago in the middle of a camper conversion project.. I took apart the 220v motor, and the temperature sensor around the rotor had burnt through, and I believe that led to it overheating and...

    Quick backstory: I'm relatively new to table saws and I feel a little overwhelmed looking at the options. I am building custom cabinetry (kitchen and bathroom) and so I am handling large plywood sheets regularly. The two things that are most important to me are: 1. An extension if possible to...

    I’m thinking of buying an older “classic” table saw and going through the process of cleaning it up. I don’t know much about what is quality and what is cheap. Im looking at 5 of them. Assuming they’re all in decent working order, which one should I go for? Rexon RM-425 ($150) Delta 36-390C...

    I replaced my 35 year old contractor saw ( 24 x 22 inch table ) with a SawStop, but didn’t want to increase the floor footprint. So which SawStop model would be best for minimizing footprint? The SawStop PCS motor is normally sticking out the left hand side of cabinet, and moves inside when...

    Sorry, but...... this seems to be the most talked about topic. I didn’t want to just add on to old threads. So I was selfish and started another. I want to replace my Craftsman 137.228910 10” contractor style table saw. It has served me well for over 20 years, but I would like to upgrade...

    Hi all, It's my very first time giving it a go at a woodworking project (replacing some cabinets in my kitchen) and I am looking for a used table saw hopefully under the $350 range. The thickest I will be cutting is 3/4" birch ply. I found these in my area on CL. I was hoping to get some...

    I have an old craftsman 10" contractor table saw. Picked it up, cheap, on FB marketplace, to replace my even crappier old craftsman portable table saw, as the fence was worse than useless, it was dangerous. The angle adjustment, however, is the worst design possible. Pure friction!!! Who the...

    I have a Craftsman 152.221140 hybrid saw. It has the main table area plus one extension on each side per standard. Is it possible to add more extensions? If so what should I look for?

    My new used table saw has cabinet mounted trunnions so to adjust the blade runout you move the table. The blade is a little less than a 64th (64th is the smallest measurement I have) closer to the miter slot in the rear than the front of the blade. I followed the instructions to loosen the bolts...

    I am very new to woodworking. I want to buy a table saw that I can use to make dado cuts. However, I have heard that some saws cannot have dado blades installed in them. Is this true? And if so, how do I know which saws will take a dado blade set? I'm hoping to buy the saw used to save a bit of...
