We've often been told that the best shop ideas are also the easiest to build, and this simple cut off table for the band saw surely fits that description. The table was originally built to cut turnings to length, but it also serves a host of other purposes, from cutting just about anything to length, to establishing tenon shoulders or making multiples.
The award winning PM2000 table saw sets a new standard for innovation with an array of patented features and massive body design. It boasts the heaviest cast iron base in its class that virtually eliminates table vibration. The cast iron tables are oversized, and the push button arbor lock is accessible from above the table top to eliminate the need for dual arbor wrenches. The quick-release riving knife design helps reduce the chance of kickback. The blade tilt scale has adjustable angle indicators for repetitive bevel cuts. Built-in retractable omni-directional caster system mobilizes your table saw. A wide stance, heavy-duty trunnion and concave teeth on the trunnion gears promote easier raising and tilting of saw blade. Poly-V drive belt system results in quieter, more efficient power transfer from the motor to the arbor with virtually no vibration and less heat build up. Built-in dust collection port with sloped cabinet floor and convenient access to the inside of the saw cabinet make for simple clean-up. The saw has a proprietary safety switch with magnetic interlock, and the stop button can be knee activated.Quick release riving knife greatly reduces binding/kickback risk Built-in retractable caster system (patent pending) for immediate shop mobility Push button arbor lock (patent pending) for rapid blade change Poly-V drive belt system delivers efficient, quiet operation Wide stance heavy-duty trunnion for stability and smooth blade positioning Adjustable angle indicators (patent pending) on the blade bevel scale for repeatable bevel cuts Industrial-duty Accu-Fence System ensures accurate cuts Enclosed cabinet with cast iron base for rigidity Heavy-duty deluxe micro-adjust miter gauge with aluminum extruded 13" extension fence, for good workpiece support and fine angle adjustments. Precision ground, high luster, cast iron table top with front and rear edge bevel to prevent catching of miter gauge on table edge Heavy-duty chrome plated handwheels contribute to smooth trunnion/arbor movement Independent leaf blade guard and anti-kickback pawls promote safe cutting Industrial magnetic controls, and jumbo stop switch is reachable with the knee Built-in 4" port for dust collectionStandard Equipment:TEFC Motor with magnetic controls Standard left and right cast iron extension wings Accu-Fence System with 30" to the right cutting capacity Melamine-surface extension table and legs Arbor wrench Motor cover Blade, power cord plug not included
This jig allows you to rip thin strips on the left side of the blade, eliminating the danger of pushing narrow strips between the saw and fence. Since the strip is not trapped between the blade and fence, there is also less risk of binding and kickback. It's simple to use; a single knob locks the jig into the miter track and locks your setting at the same time. Ball bearing guide keeps your workpiece firmly against the fence for perfect repeatability. Use the graduated scale to fine-tune for extremely thin strips. Note: Ripping thin strips requires the use of a zero-clearance insert, sold separately.The perfect tool for edging, inlay, bent laminations and more.Solid phenolic for durability.Low-profile miter track clamp locks in at any point along the miter track.Also works great on the bandsaw as a single-point fence for cutting curved slats in multiples.Adjusts from 1-3/8" away from your miter track to 5-11/16" away from your miter track, enough for the thinnest ripsMeasures 5-1/4"W x 8"L.The jig is stationary, while the fence is moved for each cut.Fits 3/4" W x 3/8" D Miter Tracks
