  1. Let’s skip portability for a moment. Have you ever used a radial arm saw to cut dados? Something you can’t do with a miter saw. If a person has the room, the radial arm saw is a great addition. I love having both in my shop.
  2. The smartest thing I've ever read about shop layout is location of wood storage. You just don't want to have to run an obstacle course across your shop to bring in lumber. So in that thought you want wood storage in close proximity to the door. With that same thought in mind, especially if you are building cabinets and will be using a lot of sheet goods: you want the table saw in close proximity to your wood storage. Think about the difficulty of maneuvering around various machines while lugging a 4x8x3/4 sheet of plywood.
  3. I've had drivers tell me I couldn't put something in my cans but when I call the actual sanitation department they said it was ok so I requested they notify their drivers. Sometimes the drivers make up their own rules. You may want to bag it and find some horse people. They use it for bedding and in many cases will pay you for it.

    Hey...I need a new tablesaw, Planer, jointer, sander, dust collection, and a shop....GOFUNDME. JUST KIDDING
  6. Even though thismoist was not as a review it sure turned into one and I glad to see so many positive opinions. I toonhave been eyeing this one and now I am convinced.
  7. Ok....it's Father's Day weekend which means I get to do what I want. I've already lit my Kamado Grill/Smoker in preparation for smoking a 12.5 lb. Brisket. I also have plans to get comfortable with the Delta Planer I got from my Dad. So I brought home a pretty blonde pallet from work. I took my circular saw and cut out all the planks inside the nails. Now tomorrow I plan on taking this FREE blonde wood and getting real comfortable with it. So what are y'all's father days plans?
  8. That sounds exactly like a brushes issue and there is nothing easier.
  9. Did you have to do any mods for the Biesemeyer or was it a direct bolt up? You
  10. I am wanting to buy a pair of 27" cast iron wings for my table saw. Brand doesn't matter.
  11. Honestly, I have no clue. It's just it was my Dad's and there is no price I would sell it for but I am going to fix it up and possibly upgrade if possible.
  12. Right now I am thinking just the wings but if possible I may do the whole and converting it to a 52" if possible.
  13. I have my Dad's old table saw and I am about to get started cleaning it up and getting it in better operating condition. Mainly needs some cleaning, lubrication, and good ole TLC. My question today is this: is it possible to change out the old stamped top with a newer cast iron top?
  14. @K Cooper have you considered just buying shorter wood to start with. Lol
  15. Bless your pea pickin heart Steve. You are a good man for having bit your tongue. A lesser man would have snapped. Please post your project and I promise, we won't ask the why questions.
  16. Eric, I do live in Kentucky but I'm Mississippi born and bred. There is a great book you should get about Southern colloquialisms that even discusses origina. The book is titled: "Butter my Butt and call me a Biscuit". https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0740785672/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1495290868&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=butter+my+butt+and+call+me+a+biscuit&dpPl=1&dpID=6143vL4z8oL&ref=plSrch as to my minister saying, an ole Baptist minister carried so many secrets of his flock that at time of his death, he weighed a ton
  17. Ok. Here it is. My Dad's Delta Model 10 radial arm saw. Other than dusty, it is in great shape and purrs like a kitten but heavier than a dead minister. Will be moving it back home today along with a decent stack of oak I found.
  18. Most companies only want to install what they sell and stay busy enough without taking on outside jobs. I got a Mitsubishi split system that just came in. I talked to a commercial HVAC guy that works on my systems at work. He said to install myself and call him and he will come out on the side and do his thang.
  19. But it's nice to know should you ever need it, you know where to find it.
  20. I stopped into that shop just about two weeks ago on one of my many trips hauling my Dad's tools from Mississippi back to Kentucky. They are 2.5 hours for me from the house, but it was a nice shop and I like the aspect of looking a salesman in the eye and getting my hands on the tool....call me old fashion. Did you browse through their wood assortment in the back room. NICE!!!
  21. This one is a Delta. It is covered in sawdust and will need some sprucing up before I put it to use
  22. As long as the 2x4 is walnut
  23. I'll gladly ship you some of the sawdust from when I begin my new tabletop.
  24. You guys are hilarious!!!
  25. Does anyone here use a radial arm saw anymore. I know it had pretty much been made obsolete by the power mitre saw. Yesterday in cleaning my dad's shop out I uncovered one. I plugged it up and it still runs. It's an old Delta. Contemplating what do do or use it for.
