    I have a free site. It sends me some business, but not a ton. Houzz does hound me to sign up for their marketing, which Iíve never done. They wanted about $1000/month.

    Yes, I could have had a few cheap Whitneyís the last 12 months, but Iíve seen specs on the saw and the base is too wide. Canít get it through the door. Same for most of the tannewitz models, I think....

    Hmm, thatís a shame. Is this saw worth owning without the sliding table? Iím considering selling the PM72 I just redid to get the Martin. To what end? I have no idea! From what you all are saying,...

    Thought it would be better to post here rather than start a new thread. A few questions for the guys who have worked on T-17s. One, did all saws come standard with the sliding table? How does the...

    When i made my chairs, i want to say i drumsanded the laminates down to 1/8-3/16". 3/8" might be a little on the thick side, but im sure it would work. I would make a full length caul to support the...

    Greg,

    Ive only ever used it on the back of the slider. I assume you have your crosscut fence and outrigger table set in the forward position? I used my clamp for a month or so when i first got the...

    Hard to argue with the domino. It takes what could potentially be 20ish mins of finessing a joint into a 30-40 second process. After that, a good 6" sander is a nice upgrade/timesaver. An inch doesnt...
