  • Nice fathers day gift

    I complained here about my table saw giving up the ghost a couple of weeks ago. The other day my wife called my son without me knowing and asked if he would go in halves on a new one. He said he could do better than that as he had one that he would send me. He bought it a year ago to build a deck then swore off building stuff and it's just been sitting in his garage since. He sent it to me and it arrived yesterday. You should see the pile of sawdust I made.
    It's a 10 inch Ryobi that looks brand new. I think it may be smarter than me as it has a 90 and 45 degree positive stops for quick changes, fence with built in measure, a real working kick back guard and all kinds of things. It's a good one. The wife looked up the retail and it's a couple of hundred bucks she said. I said "I don't care what it cost I'm just happy to have it" and went back to practicing my cutting.
    It's a great Father's Day gift and I just had to brag a little.

      congratulations on the new tool. My shop is just about not quite big enough for a table saw. If I moved the band saw, lathe and scroll saw out it would fit.

          The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

          Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

          The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

          Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

          Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

          It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...
