    Safety poll: Do you use the guard on your tablesaw?

    Thread Starter: Frederick Skelly

    It will seem nuts to some of you, but Ive never used a tablesaw that has a guard. Every one has always been just "bare blade". I occasionally use a home made splitter. Im thinking its time to mend my ways before I get hurt and have to mend my hand. But I got curious and wanted to poll the community...

    I just bought the Knew Concept fret saw, and I don't like it.

    Thread Starter: Fidel Fernandez

    Yes, it is true, or that is the case according to the two people in the customer service department that I have just finished talking to. I ordered it at the beginning of August, and have received no issues. E-mails, yes, but no magazines. Today I received a bill, noting that I had not paid...

    Moving unexpectedly

    Thread Starter: Steve Rozmiarek

    Question for you guys. Looks like I'm moving unexpectedly. I've been leasing our current place, but the owner wants to move back in after I fixed it up very nicely. Yep I'm an idiot for that. Of course it's super short notice, and I'm trying to figure some things out. Because I don't want to...
