    I make my cauls straight and then use a shim or two in the middle to create pressure btween the clamps. The cauls should be stiff enough to press out the cup, but flexible enough to bend and crapply...

    A good operator can break down 40 sheets of plywood into cabinet parts before lunch on a slider. All with very little attention to settings and accuracy. I don't even want to think about doing that...

    Drill a hole in the fence rail and drop a bolt into it to create a positive stop so the fence can't hit the blade.

    This is a well documented issue with Sawstop. The plywood faces were wonky junk. Loosen the screws and shim with tape. Or, better yet, fab up a new face with better material.

    Use cauls to evenly clamp front to back on each shelf. One your glue is dry, your golden.

    That was my first thought. I've recreated many a historic detail with Bondo and an old credit card. Learned it from a plaster molding guy.

    I suspect that the primary pupose of the dowels is to align the parts properly. Notice how little material is trimmed from the top and bottom of the door. That requires a good deal of precision and...

    Can you get to the top of the bolt? Bolts not meant to turn, so the nut up top has to adjust tension. What happens when you tighten the top nut to the casting?

    In my opinion, thin kerf blades have no place on a format saw. Their flexible nature defeats one of the main reasons for going with a beefier machine. Thin kerf blades will begin resonating while...

    You might want to test your strength hypothesis. I have and threaded inserts didn't come out on top. Yes, the bolt is stronger than a screw, but neither is like to fail. What fails is the thread to...

    I straight my edges on the slider or on a table saw sled. I don't touch them with a hand plane, it's not necessary. Any saw marks won't show if the seams nice and straight. Any deviation from...

    Occam's Razor dictates that the blade was accidently damaged during handling or storage. Kinks don't happen naturally and the link is likely the cause of the crack.

    I would think that ripping that much plywood on any dinky jobsite saw isn't a valid option. The small fence and unstable work surface don't lend themselves to hours and hours of material processing....
