I inherited my saw about 10 yrs ago, and you're right. The concept is good, but it lacks some fine tuning capabilities. It could be a bit beefier as well. My trouble has been with the SMT. I'll go through the adjustment procedure to get the travel parallel with the blade, and the pivoting fence perpendicular to the blade, but I still get a slight taper. I think I am getting some movement/flexing when cutting that I just can't see. I'll start looking for a new saw as well. I am just getting into this woodworking stuff so I don't have many skills, but I can tell that using a decent tablesaw would go along way towards making nice furniture, shelving, etc..
Yes, Darrell Waltrip has a Honda dealership just down the road. It's a nice little town just south of Nashville.
Thanks and welcome to the Kregs community. The table saw has been with me for about 10 years. Bought it at Lowes at the time. I had the 4 X 8 sheet for the miter saw cabinet cut into smaller ( the sizes I needed) pieces at Lowes. Then I can handle the smaller items like the face frame and shelfs that I will put in tomorrow myself. I can get fairly square cuts, but I did notice the fence is not always square to the blade. I have worked on it some and have to check it before every cut. The concept of the saw is good. I think for what I paid not too bad, but will start looking for another table saw this summer. Perhaps a used delta unisaw or a newer but reasonably priced one. Good luck building. I think I might try a End Table next.
Hey isn't Franklin Tn. the home of Darrell Waltrip?
Has anyone used one of the Kreg Universal Stand configurations as the base for a miter saw workstation with fold down wings? I scrolled through the pics in the community and all I saw were using a DIY base cabinet. I have an extra Kreg router…Continue
Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction. I have considerable experience with conventional…
