  • Safety Recall

    I know this is a scroller forum but there are those out there that saw there own lumber and maybe using this tabletop Skil saw that is being recalled.

    Just thought I would pass on a safety recall of a bench top saw. It is a SKIL table saw. It is made by Bosch It has the model number 3400 printed on the front side of the table base with the following date codes--28501-28831; 38101-39231; and48101-48811. The saw holds a 10" blade and has a metal top and red base. They were manufactored in Taiwan from July 2002 to Oct 2004. Price was about $149 to $199 They were sold at all Home centers and hardware stores. Something about the blade drive mechanism loosening and the motor shifting causing kickback. If anyone operates a tablesaw they know or should be aware of kickback. More injuries are caused with kickback than cutting off digits.

    If you own this saw stop using imediatly and contact Bosch at 800-351-5788 or visit Skil web site at www.skil.com

    Hope this has not had an ill effect on any of our readers. Back to making sawdust.

      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.

      Now,...

      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...

      Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
