    May be that is the difference between having something to say, and having to say something. Almost all sharpening threads fall into the latter category, no matter how they end.

    The tablesaw because it is the center piece in my shop. Everything else is secondary, and I can accept second hand. That said, the only second hand machines I have in my shop are those hand-held...

    Blind or through (easier than blind) dominoes would work well for this type of ladder with angled rungs - twin tenons 10mm x 24mm x 50mm (or 8mm, if centered mortises).

    Jack,

    The rule on the table saw and the tape you used to calibrate were not the same tape, and what you observed was natural. It is unlikely you can get tapes of identical measurements even if...

    I am not so sure about the wax thing simply because I never wax my table, and use something else for rust prevention. However, paying attention to keeping stock tight to the fence is what I do EVERY...

    That was the interpretation I made out of your first post.

    I had seen two authors referring to the front and back of a tablesaw differently in their articles. One referred to the 'front' as the...

    It has been documented that someone injured his hand because he got startled by a light bulb popping as he was making some cut on the tablesaw. The incident report did not say if he was wearing any...

    Yes, the blade guard is not used if or when the Gripper is used directly over the blade. The blade guard can still be put in place if the Gripper is used like a push shoe or block on wider stock.

    Wow. Sounds like you're some guy who can't stand anyone loving their Kapexes. I've come across a good share of people like that on the sawstop, but the Kapex? Why? Because it's green?

    Between a Makita LS1019L (if that's the one you have) and a Bosch Glide, I'd definitely go with the Makita.

    My station does not have a fence on either side of the Kapex. Everything is registered against the fence of the saw only (which is calibrated with the blade). Even dressed long stock is seldom...

    May be I've missed your point Chris. Mine is indeed 110V, but if it is older than Peter's (240V), shouldn't it be a good thing that I have had no power or motor issue?
