    Nothing about this question implies anything other than a single phase 240v branch circuit which is usually wired with 3 wires - 2 hots and a ground, no neutral (at least in my jurisdiction) and...

    I cannot speak to every tablesaw model available, or even to those you mention as being of interest. But, what you describe is not an unusual condition. My Jet cabinet saw (JTAS-10XL) is the same as...

    Too high a tooth count for anything much over 1/4 to 3/8 inch thick. Gullets are too small and load up much too quickly to use in anything thicker.

    3/16" or 1/4" x 4 tpi would be a better choice...

    Personally, I wouldn't worry about .004 over the exposed length of the blade. But if you want to try to chase it out, shims between the trunnion and the table (or between the cabinet and the table on...

    NEC Article 430 covers motor circuits, which, in my opinion, should never be mentioned in other than dedicated, hardwired, continuous use, industrial/commercial environments.

    All I've ever bought has been calculated based on the nominal or rough cut dimension. 3/4" milled = 4/4 rough = 1" as far as board foot calculations are concerned.

    In my opinion, worth exactly what you paid for it, in a non-production environment, the price difference between 3 and 5 HP brings more value if it's put into premium quality saw blades. And that...

    There are two contradictory requirements on every dust collector duct installation.

    1) They have to have low flow resistance to move the greatest amount of air - use large pipes to do that.

    Yes, it does. It, like most stacked dado blades puts small "bat ear" grooves in the corners, but it's not a "wobble" dado blade.

    It works just like a stacked dado set with an inner and outer blade...

    The speed and momentum of the piece coming at you is in direct proportion to the speed of the blade that throws it at you. All tablesaws spin the blade at about the same speed. The motor only...
