Nice job. Well done video.
Agree - not having the right miter slots is just a pain in the ass (and seems just overall like a dick move on Ryobi's part...)I have a Ryobi BT3000. It is decent for what I use it for. The drawback is it has no 3/4 inch miter slots to build sleds, aluminum top, etc. I got it cheap with about $200 worth of blades. In retrospect, I wish I had bought another brand.
I have had it for about five years and still have all my fingers. I just don't get close to the blade.
I think with a guard, splitter, anti kickback jig, and a push stick I am being as safe as one can be with a table saw. Definitely agree on the jig part - just dumb design (and disrespectful in my opinion to the maker looking to be safe)DANGER DANGER! Those Ryobi table saws like to eat fingers as I found out the hard way..and they're not really setup for the use of jigs very well. Hopefully you'll get a much better saw someday and remain fingerful.. Nice video.
