    Mine has a wandering slot but I am able to work with it. I use a sled for crosscuts and my push keeps it in tight to the blade so it is consistent.

    This works for me, the vfd slows it down and the foot switch gives me much better control.

    Maybe the problem is slamming the doors. Soft closers would help if that's an easy option, or meds.

    Hey Jonny
    You clearly are the expert here. How about expansion, does it make sense to try this with solid stock?

    Hi Paul

    Good time to use a hand plane. It can taper legs as fast as making a jig and more reliably and it's more pleasant work.

    Drawers are a bigger challenge. Might want to skip that on your first table

    Dents in new floor

    Our kitchen remodel is going great except for the new sheet vinyl flooring. Our dining table (about 60 pounds) caused dents overnight. We removed it and the dents partly recovered in a few days. This...

    How about something better, an adjustable angled fence that pivots near the blade. In simplest form, a piece of angle iron across the back of the sled (is that what you call the slidy thing?), pinned...

    Just a few cautions;

    3/4 hp is not a lot, and it will be less at reduced speed HP = torque x rpm so half rpm = 3/8 hp

    Assuming it has a fan, your motor will not cool well at reduced speed so...

    I put a vfd and an 1800 rpm motor on my TS. The blade spins at a maximum of 2000 rpm and it stops in 1 second. Very handy. Yes I have to feed a little slower but that's insignificant and it's a...

    There's a cure for this that might save a few blades as well. Slow the saw down. I put a VFD and a slower motor on my Delta and it works great. It spins the blade at half speed or less. Half speed...

    For dry hands make a fist and blow thru it to moisten palms, about doubles your grip.

    First priority for me would be to get rid of that tilting table table saw. Don't sell it, scrap it. Your conscience will be clear. A cabinet saw can have a smaller footprint than a contractor's saw. ...
