Re: Jigsaw

I have a few Festool tools but I'm not a huge fan of the Carvex. Mostly it's the on/off switch. I find my fingers are never in a position to switch off after a cut (barrel grip version). Wish I'd known about the 300 version. Cheaper and a traditional sliding switch on the side of the grip! didn't do...

Re: USED Stehle table saw blade 315 30

I'll take best offers. Can't remember how much new. Doesn't fit my new saw so for sale. Prefer collection or will post to uk only.
I've got 3 used rip blades same size that someone can have for free if they collect or they go in the bin.

Re: The new (old) saw!

I never thought I'd have room for a full size panel saw but after visiting another cabinet maker and seeing how he worked a sliding Felder saw into his small workshop I was inspired. I did have to cut off around 150mm from the rip fence bar!

Yes you can rip so that the rip offcut is to the rhs of the blade , what you need is a parallel guide for the slider, it works in conjunction with the cross cut fence and makes 100% perfect rips. It's great for panel work and multiple rips in wood. What does a parallel guide look like? Can they be ...
