    Hmmmm.. here comes the stupid questions again.....I have gone to the Bosch NZ site, referenced here at GTS 10 XC Table Saw | Bosch Professional and looked at the specs which seem to be stating that SAW BLADE BORE is 25.4mm. Is there a difference between the saw blade bore and the Table Saw...

    Thanks so much for your reply and for detailing your practices for preparing the thin strips. Would you consider sharing the details of the jig that you use with your track saw, as I had considered using my track saw but was concerned about getting constant repeatable cuts. Also, I would love...

    Brilliant idea! I had not even thought of using the bandsaw but have followed your link, viewed the video and now am in "on-line discussion" with the nice folks at Accu Slice. Thanks so much for the prompt. In addition, I will be changing to Freud blades for my table saw. Cheers

    I read somewhere (but of course can't find the reference now!) that it is possible to use the CT36 AC vacuum and accompanying hose with the more common RTS and ROTEX sanders, which I have several of. My 36mm hose has a difference connection on the end than the one that will connect with the...

    Drum sander for finished Kumiko panels

    Hi, I am back again with the questions - I went to the Axi site to see which drum sander you had purchased as I am facing the same problem, but the 406 doesn’t seem to be sold there now. Is there another DS similar, so I could heat an idea? Thanks, Robyn
