    Startrite TA 175/275 question - extension bars

    Ah, I think you've perhaps misunderstood the need for the extension bar. I'm looking to extend the standard fence rails - the DS came with 4 such extension bars I believe. As for the sliding mechanism, if I do anything, I intend to make a static table extension that would fold down when not in...

    Startrite TA 175/275 question - extension bars

    MrPercySnodgrass - Thanks so much, my friend (with the metalwork lathe) is taking a look. Ttrees - agreed, mostly I've seen the DS with the rail attached directly to the end of the fences as yours, but in the manual here: http://sharkbandsawblades.co.uk/downloa ... E%20WM.pdf - page 26 does...

    Startrite TA 175/275 question - extension bars

    Sorry, not a great photo, and I'd taken off the sliding table mounting bar to get it in the car - the below is slightly better (I'm not at home at the moment so I can't take a better photo). If you look closely you should be able to make out the side and top of the support arm, additionally the...

    Startrite TA 175/275 question - extension bars

    I picked up my TA275 yesterday - many thanks to those who commented on my previous thread the advice about bracing the base with a piece of wood was extremely useful - thanks ttrees. To my surprise it turned out to be the DS model, but sadly the sliding carriage is missing. This made it a...

    Planing bowed boards on PT

    I can't say I'd thought about it until now and in truth I've no idea what I've been doing up until now. If you're dealing with stock of a similar length to the bed of the planer, it makes sense to me to do it convex side down as you keep the reference surface on the bed throughout the cut. If...

    Startrite TA275 - will it fit in a car?

    Thanks everyone for your help. Car and a few pieces of scrap wood it is then.

    Startrite TA275 - will it fit in a car?

    Thanks for the comments everyone - helpful as always! Ttrees - is the base really that wobbly when the top's been taken off? That unnerves me a little. Presumably it's more stable when in one piece - should I just take a van and collect it whole? Are there any concerns with taking a van...

    Startrite TA275 - will it fit in a car?

    Firstly just a quick hello - I've been lurking around these forums for a while and have finally registered and posted! After considering retiring my Aldi table saw that got me back into woodwork (mostly furniture), I've found a good deal on a Startrite TA275 that needs some TLC. I've read...
