Table Saw Fundamentals: The Complete Guide
The table saw is the single tool that turns the hobbyist into a real woodworker, capable of handling a range of challenging jobs. With expert advice, color photos, drawings, and exploded diagrams, Popular Mechanics reveals exactly what this all-important piece of equipment can do. This invaluable and instructive manual covers it all: cutting wood to precise dimension; making simple joints such as grooves, dadoes, rabbets, and miters; crafting jigs and fixtures; and doing advanced techniques, from molding to resawing. It even provides a visual "anatomy" of the many types of available table saws, along with guidance on maintenance and troubleshooting.
