    New Delta vs used Jet table saw: opinions needed

    What I have now is a Shopmaster TS350. Its direct drive like a jobsite, but has the CI top and wings as well as stationary base. So cheep small contractor. The Jet was up for 650, they came down to 450 so far. I can see a splitter or knife in the pic but cant tell which it is but no blade guard. It has stamped wings like the Delta and Ridgid, and is the older green color rather than the current white they use. I was sold on the Ridgid until I knew about the trunion and alignment issues. That and the bies style fence lead me to the Delta. I understand that parts availability issues is due to the ownership changing hands. It looks like there is decent suppprt for current products. I can't get anything for the 350. Now you guys have me back to the Ridgid.
  2. Hello, I am looking to upgrade my current Delta contractors table saw and need some advice. I was looking at getting either the Ridgid R4512 or Delta 36-725 table saw and decided on the Delta mainly due to the better fence. I had come across a used Jet JWTS-10JF in my area that was rather over priced. After making an offer several weeks ago they came back with a more reasonable price, a bit high I think, but reasonable. Anyone here have any experience with either of the two? Any input is more than welcome! Thank you!

    Parallel clamp clearance at Woodcraft

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to post or if it is not allowed...but.... made a random stop at my local (metro Detroit) Woodcraft and happened upon a pallet of Bora brand 50" parallel clamps with a "manager's special" sign stating they were $32 each and if you bought 4 you got a $20 gift card.

    Hauling rough lumber in a SUV

    Oh the right impact those boards would take your head clean off. Have you considered strapping the boards to your roof?! Secure the boards together with ratchet straps to make one secure unit. Pad your roof with a couple small folded moving blankets, with your doors open use two ratchet straps to secure the load to the roof through the inside of the car. If you are worried about caving in the roof, consider cutting two boards that will span the black trim where a roof rack would mount. The doors should still close without issue. Be sure to secure the front and back of the boards under the front and rear bumpers. this will work for the OP too, securing the boards together first is the most critical step though.

    furnace vacuum for dust collection?

    Thank you all! I guess I should have gone with learning the basics first, just did not know where to start. I guess you don't know what you don't know. Working with my grandfather, his DC system was me vacuuming the shop after a project was done. Never considered looking at CFM. I guess I have a dedicated vacuum for my RO sander.

    furnace vacuum for dust collection?

    Hello, I have been reading the forums here for a little while and am looking to get into the hobby after growing up in my grandfather's shop. My first question for you all is about dust collection. I hope to get to the point where i need a full size dust collector but for now I am using a Ridgid shop vac and a dust deputy. I see a lot of people with this set up build a cart to keep them together. I fear that if i tried this it would be quite large with my 16gal vac. I was just given a Mastercraft Sootmaster 652 ($700 new) which is much smaller at 6gal. I think it has the power, but know nothing about furnace vacs. Especially why they are so expensive! If anyone out there happens to know a thing or two about both DC and furnace vacs whould you be able to tell me if a furnace vac with a dust deputy would be a decent set up while I relearn the trade?
