    Thread Starter: Bennie Dempsey

    Hey all! I would like to start planning out my projects before I begin them, as I've heard that's a good habit to have.

    Good quality mobility bases?

    Thread Starter: Steve Rozmiarek

    Anyone have recommendations on decent quality and reasonably priced mobility bases for table saws? I haven't paid any attention to the market in years, googled yesterday and was a little shocked at the prices I saw. Last I remember, they were half of what I'm seeing now. Bases for would cost...

    Solvents in the shop (I hope not too geeky)

    Thread Starter: David Utterback

    Most of us keep solvents around for a variety of shop purposes. Probably most common are to dilute other solutions and to dissolve other materials.

    Auger bit recommendations

    With hardwood, drill a pilot hole that is a little narrower than the screw. This will enable you to use an auger bit as wide as you like in hardwood.

    Table saw conversion to 220v but 4 wire outlet

    Hmmm...sorry but one more clarification needed. You suggest I use black, red, and green wires from the cord but the manual shows black, white, and green.

    Table saw dado blade question

    I had a TS3650 for nearly 10 years and ran it with an 8" Oshlun dado set. When you get close to that 3/4" width you will indeed have to use
