Some machine maintenance today, it’s a job I’ve put off for far to long!
Adjusting the table saw’s sliding table.. over time the settings have moved ever so slightly, the sliding table is supposed to be set to have a very slight ‘toe out’ where the table moves fractionally away from the blade to prevent the back of the blade from binding on the workpiece. Mine had become a tad ‘toe’d in’ which made cross cutting wide boards frustrating.
The Hammer C3 31 is really easy to adjust (though the machines instructions have a lot to be desired) all it took was a spanner, a simple jig to hold a dial gauge and a bit of patience, now it’s spot on👌😃
This should come in handy next week, keeping an eye on process timing for my new Roubo workbench course trial run ⏱
Building on the success of my other courses I am hoping to launch a three day workbench building course this year.
I am about to begin building a prototype of the course workbench to check that my proposed time scale and costings are realistic.
