    I'm not familiar enough with the Saw Stop Bill to offer a view, but it's basically a case of knocking down the issues/achieving the functionalities you need one by one.

    Definitely not a silicone containing wax. Some tend to have a strong and not very pleasant smell anyway.

    Another very happy user here with a TS LS on a panel saw, and separately a Wonderfence set up on a router table. It's definitely worth going some distance for the positioning capability. +1 also that...

    Moderate heat is often a big help in removing pressure sensitive adhesives and stickers - they will sometimes peel away leaving no residue and without tearing. It seesm to depend on the specific...

    I got a bunch of work shirts from Landsend Winton - lots of size options.

    The Delta is probably a bit like a Tormek - i bought one years ago too thinking that with such a great enormous wheel...

    It's perhaps reasonable to suspect that very precise set up expertise (use of cambers, flattening the back, use of very fine stones) lay more with skilled shops and individuals - that the vast...

    Another option is an Incra TS LS positioner equipped rip fence. It allows the fence to be stepped at whatever regular interval towards the blade - with the strips peeling off to the LHS of the...

    It's hard to avoid water fling so far as i can tell Winton. The WorkSharp runs something over 500rpm and while it's absolutely not designed for wet use (potential risk as well as damage given the...

    I'm guessing that Mathias is a chap that ploughs a very independent furrow - guided by priorities that may not be everybodys. For sure wood seems unlikely to take over as a professional quality...

    That's a fair comment Mark - in that the Woodmaster CT is a pretty aggressively hooked/raked blade so far as I know. If the rake is enough that it's drawing the blade into the cut at a faster rate...

    It's an odd one, but it's hard to see how a bang like that can be caused by anything other than the blade grabbing in the wood, the motor as a result increasing the blade tension enough to load up...

    Hi Erik. Off topic, but I spent many weeks over a few years in PEI back in the mid 80s installing and upgrading large scale potato (french fry) peeling and de-skinning equipment in Summerside (?)....

    For what it's worth the position is even worse this side of the Atlantic - i've been searching for over a year while valiantly resisting the temptation to fold and buy a better quality but still...

    I guess the basic is that the straight shank of a holdfast in order to function needs to clear the bottom surface of the bench. Not necessarily by very much, but enough to ensure that any rounded off...

    I'd imagine that it depends what you use the saw for. Many use them for sawing up sheet where a long track is likely to make more sense - some of the track joiners for example are not as...
