    Help me decide on a table saw

    Thread Starter: Scott Winter

    All, Well I am 2 weeks from moving into my new home where my 2 car garage (approx 20'x20') will be my new "man cave".

    15" Wide Belt Sander won't turn off

    Thread Starter: Josh Falcon

    Machinery...

    Thread Starter: Michael J Evans

    I am curious as to what machines you consider essential to your hand tool wood working journey? I own a table saw and a chop saw. I don't ever user the chop saw and dislike using my table saw. It is a Craftsman 113 and the fence leaves a lot to be desired. But it's good for rough ripping jobs. I...
