Table Saw Blog
I started a new blog Table Sawin', where you will find information about setting up and maintaining a table saw. Originally I had planned to make it part of my site here, but I thought I would try blogger and see how it rates. Using the blogger platform will simply the webmaster activities I need to perform and also make sure there is ample bandwidth for the site during peak times. The plan is to use all google and free tools for the Table Sawin' site. I am already impressed with the widgets I can add to blogger and should be able to accomplish everything I want with them. If you own a table saw or would like to own one go check out Table Sawin'!
- First unplug the table saw and make sure you can see the plug while you work.
Second remove the table top cover that surrounds the blade and prevents small pieces from falling through the table.
- Third place a scrap piece of wood through the table so that it catches the teeth of the blade. This is so that the blade doesn't accidentally spin while you are using the wrench.
- Fourth use a wrench to loosen the bolt that holds the blade on. The trick with this bolt is that it is not "righty tighty, loosy lefty", so make sure to loosen it in the opposite direction as you normally would.
- Finally remove the bolt and washer from the saw blade and then carefully slip the blade off.
It usually takes me a few minutes to safely remove a table saw blade. It is important to not rush these steps. Always make sure the saw is unplugged.
