Re: Man Wins Big Money in Tablesaw Lawsuit

This is utter insanity. The guy got hurt because he was sloppy, or inept, or ignorant, or plain unlucky-- not because of any flaw in the saw. For him to be rewarded, and for the rest of us to be saddled with expensive, unnecessary but mandatory saw "safety" features, is WRONG.

Re: Calling all benchtop warriors

My first bandsaw was a Delta benchtop unit. I could not keep the band from coming off in use, despite repeated tuning attempts. I finally replaced it with the good old Delta 14" stationary machine which is a joy to use.

Re: Calling all benchtop warriors

I've owned a couple of DeWalt benchtop planers. Both feature the same atrocious dust colletor setup. The vacuum hose goes directly over the outfeed. Every time I use it, I need to jury-rig baling wire to hold the hose up out of the way. Why in the world can't DeWalt make the duct so the hose connects off to the side? I spent a lot of money for this irritation.
