Saw Stop Fence

I have had a PCS 52" 3hp Saw stop for almost 4 years now. I recently helped a guy put his new powermatic together….while it does not have the saftey benefits, I must say, the fence and miter guage are truly superior to Saw Stop. I heard...

Powermatic Band Saw Extension Table

I’ve made several 30” circles using my circle cutting jig. Each time, it’s been a struggle holding the right side of the jig, with the material on it, flush with the table. I thought about making a cart, but that seemed like a lot of material,...

Admitting our dangerous (and dumb) mistakes might help others.

When I decided to start this wonderful hobby, I bought on my first trip shopping the following: a table saw, planer, a scroll saw and a drill press. Having no idea how they worked, I unpacked, set them up and plugged them in. I was of course...
