  • New tablesaw

    I just got a new Craftsman tablesaw. And does it cut real good lots of sawdust! It will come in real handy I'm thinkin'.


    My saw is a DeWalt788 Measure twice; cut once; count fingers after cut

    Woohoooo! New toys ! There's nothing like them to give your woodwork a fresh impetus.

      Congrats on the table saw.
      I have no room for one here, so I use a radial arm saw I got for free. It needed a table and some TLC.
      Now I wear a dust mask and I am hooking up the shopvac. I know dust collecters are better than shopvacs, but shopvacs are better than the forced air furnace sending dust over the rest of the house.

      I have a very understanding wife, but she is understanding things can be done better

      I hope the table saw does all you need it too. A whole new learning curve for that tool.

        Congradts on the new toy err new tool. Treat with care and it will help you a great deal If there any questions or concerns ring out and we will give them a try. Remember the most important rule though think safety at all times. Good luck and Happy Woodworking

          At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

          The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

          Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
