    I can measure a bit of flow using a Testo hot wire anemometer at closed blast gates even when another gate is fully open. This appears to be the largest source of leakage for my system. Nordfab...
  3. Supercharging the SawStop Miter Gauge

    The SawStop miter gauge is widely maligned as unworthy compared to the accuracy and safety of the SawStop system as a whole. I did a few simple things to upgrade the gauge to a very functional...

    I bought the floating guard with the initial SawStop purchase but the standard guard came with the saw too. I have intended to try the standard for comparison but haven’t yet. The smaller area of...

    Yes. Either of these would reduce the suction and the air flow through the guard as would the things I mentioned. The point really is that dust collection gurus have advocated for more and more air...
  15. SawStop Table Insert Plate Gets a Little Lift

    I am still discovering little things that aren’t in the SawStop Floating Overarm Guard manual. Today’s lesson is that the suction from a strong dust collector through the guard can lift the insert...

    I like the depth and lateral adjustment of the No. 5. Varying the depth is particularly useful to me. I am by no means an expert at hand planes.
