    John - Lots of good advise above. Joe makes a really good point about the track saw. I have a Unisaw and used to cut 4x8's and 5x5s on it. Now I use the track saw almost exclusively for this...

    I'm with Robert and Michael - It sounds like the carcass may be out of square. If you measure the opening at the front and back and check for square with a square, you'll know. Once you have a...

    Jim - My go-to has also been the OF 1400. I'm considering adding the 1010 for system holes and lighter work. Do you also have the 1010 / What to you think?

    Hi Andy,

    Over the years, I've used S2S, S3S, S4S, straight line rip and rough. Lately I've settled on rough. I've seen a fair amount of S#S that shows up not flat and square, so I had to perform...

    Hi Jeff,

    For painted cabinets, I prefer poplar. It has a tight grain and sands up super-smooth. I like the way it takes paint better than maple.

    If the kids are hard on the cabinets, they...

    Michael - I had a Leigh. I used it to make through dovetails on one project then sold it. It did a great job, it's built well, and it gets the best reviews. There's a learning curve and it will...

    Orren,

    I threw mine away shortly after buying my Unisaw. I recently bought a Shark Guard splitter and blade guard. They also sell the hardware to mount their splitter to the Unisaw. Once set...

    Travis,

    In my experience, kickback occurs the way Wayne described it above - The workpiece is sent back and slightly away (to the left) from the fence.

    I don't have a hard and fast rule abut...

    Patrick - This sounds like a perfect way to buy Festool at 50% of retail. You and your buddy each go in half and share these tools. You mentioned speeding up your work, but at a cost. Think about...

    David - Congrats on your purchase. You discovered that there is real value in what you pay for Festool. While pricey for sure, I firmly believe you get what you pay for. I'd love to have a DF 500....

    Steve - I run the PC 7518 in my Excalibur and it's great. It's 10 or more years old. Like you, I've read some negative reviews. If I were replacing it, I'd try the Milwaukee like Frank. The...

    Bryan - I'm also looking into the upgrade to a slider. From what I've read, if you want a stroke to handle 8' sheets, you want more than an 8-1/2' slider. It seems that most owners prefer 9-10 for...

    Thanks a lot for the offer, John. I may take you up on a visit. I would much prefer a K700 over the 500, but as mentioned the shop entrance is a constraint for now. I have single phase, so I'll...

    Hi Brian,

    This is one way to get it done. Another way would be to clamp a straightedge to your bookcase side and run a circular saw to make the cut. Or a track saw and track if you have one.
