    Yes, results. Gotta say I'm very pleased. I ran three trials, running all six dados through the first pass, incrementing the LS for each position and making the cut. The slots measured 0.135". ...

    It is done, the LS Positioner is now mounted on my crosscut sled and is ready for some trial cuts. Checking things out with my 6" machinist scale shows it is set up correctly. My layout and...

    Yes, I will be aligning the LS fence with the saw kerf in the sled. There is no direct way to align it with the miter slot, at least that I've thought of. The kerf was cut using the blade after the...

    I have the same issue with my Powermatic 140 (14" saw, 1960 era). I gave up and bought a Carter Mag Fence.

    Derek,

    You make the assumption (and I did not specifically state) that the only wheels I have and use are the Tormek matrix grindstones. I have all three grits of the diamond wheels, which do...

    I have and use a Tormek T8 with a variety grinding wheels, all but one are Tormek. I agree they are slow, but I believe they can give superior results. To improve the speed of creating or...
