    Hi Jim,

    I don't own a SawStop, but there's no argument that its' safety feature is a plus. If among all the factors in your decision this safety feature is primary, you should get one. It's a...

    Hi Dueana,

    I don't know this one, but I recently ordered one from Lee at Shark Guard that's very similar. He does really nice splitters & guards and has some that fit older Jets.

    Hi Brian, That's very common - My saw does the same thing because of the direction the blade spins. My blade comes up at the back, so I get some tearout toward the top face. A sacrificial backer...

    It sounds like you bought S4S lumber. If so, you still have to ensure that the edges are 90 degrees to the face (and straight). If not, you'll have flatness issues during glue-up.

    Hey Jim - Good idea - I thought about some version of that. I also thought about triangles in the corners. If I did a full back, I would cut a 1/4" rabbet in the sides, top and bottom and take 1/4"...

    Vacuum Clamping

    Everyone who does vacuum clamping seems to love it.

    But it can be pretty pricey. I'd like an alternative to the Festool VAC SYS at $1,000 or a Barth vakuuLIFT at $10,000.

    I met a guy today who...

    I'm with Jamie. I think a drawer that deep just creates a black hole in the back. I would stay with 21s so you can still use the Blum Tandems. They are my go-to and never fail me.

    Hi Lisa,

    The saw kit you're looking at is $690 new. In my experience, Festool products at that price point tend to command no less than $100 below new if they are in good shape. If this saw was...
