Shop Talk Live 21: Tablesaw Tech

On this week's edition of Shop Talk Live, we tackle a listener's questions regarding the potential pitfalls of a used tablesaw purchase. Then Matt Kenney's 40 year-old Delta Unisaw takes centerstage as Matt fills us in on his recent experience rehabbing this workshop classic. Plus, we'll have a bit of fun at contributing editor Christian Becksvoort's expense, with an outtake that didn't make the final cut of his recent appearance on NBC's Parks and Recreation

I had the exact same problem with one of my LN chisels; the handle just would not stay in the socket. Looking closely, you'll see there is a shoulder at the base of the tapered tenon. On the problem chisel I noticed the blade was fully against the shoulder. Turns out the tenon was simply not cut long enough and the blade hit the shoulder before it had a chance to tighten up.

I did a little paring and, keeping the same taper angle, took the shoulder back another 1/8". This allowed the socket to seat firmly and it now work like a charm.
