    table saw tips?

    got my table saw working and it ain't bad at all. only problem is that i am having a wee bit of trouble keeping the board aligned with the fence. any general tips on the saw or specifically how to saw large boards? thanks

    Use rollers or build an external table so you can keep the board level to the blade.

    just go slow, dont try and tear through it. apply force slightly towards the fence like in the pic. also, dont cut a piece wider than it is long. It will tend to wobble alot more and can be dangerous. once that blade grabs hold of it when wobbling, its gonna end up either in your stomach or several feet behind you.

    for large boards, do what jack said.

    Re: table saw tips?

    i usually clamp a straight edge to the mdf and make 1 or 2 cuts with a circular saw so the pieces are workable on the tablesaw.

    Re: table saw tips?

    yeah i figured out that it was easier to just use the circular saw to get it nice and workable, then cut the baffles with the saw. still ned to get 'er level tho (my garage slopes towards the middle for a drain, so the ground isn't level).

    Re: table saw tips?

    if u have ur front back and sides, cut them ALL AT ONCE! u will NEVER get the same 13.5 inch or whatever everytime. u will never be exact 100% of the time. if u are 2 mm short, CUTE EVERY PIECE that should be that length if possible. cut a 48 inch piece at say 13.5 that way, u can come back and cut it at the length u need, and all ur pieces are the EXACT same height.
