    Squaring advice...

    Thanks for the advice. I did make a fence yesterday and it’s “ok” for now. I’m in the very initial stages of my first proper workshop and this will now get me to the point where I have the ability to cut stuff up. I’m going today for a piece of MDf and will make a sled. I’m absolutely certain...

    Squaring advice...

    Thanks Tom, I don't really work with metal so would have made the fence you talk of out of wood, meaning it might not of been as sturdy. To be fair it would just get in the way, especially if I was trying to clamp onto the table when using it as an assembly. I do plan to make a sled, and a...

    Squaring advice...

    Squaring advice...

    Thanks, I really like the look of the fence you reference to, bu that would require me adding the rail for the fence to slide along to the front of my table which gives me 2 problems. Firstly is getting it very straight on a budget, the front of the table is straight as I spent a lot of time...

    ...I have made myself a table saw workbench. It’s ( Bosch gets 10j) sat in the bench at around 98% (ish) square to the surface. I now need to align it as square as is possible for the fence build. I have a 12” starret square which I trust but is way too short for this situation. I have a 600mm...

    Table Saw Advice.

    You sound just like me, I'm truly in heaven right now. Ive been working in a 6x8 shed for 10 months and after a few revamps I got it to the point there I was happy there. Then circumstances changed and I had the opportunity to build a 12x10 workshop and I wake each night thinking about the next...

    Thanks Ian, my obsessive nature means I'll go over that until it sinks I'll be trying that out tomorrow, I can see how that's going to be very accurate and for just that 1 tip this post was worht its weight in gold.
