Other Tools & Accessories / Re: Crosscut sled verse miter gauge
« Last post by miclee15 on Today at 08:39 AM »
For me I'd say you need both, as they both have advantages in certain situations. So for me it's not a choice of which do I need but when do I use one over the other.

Bill Ng has an excellent YT video showing how to build his sled. No doubt many here have viewed it, but for those who haven't here it is. He recently came out with a miter attachment for this sled so look for that video too.

Bob D - thanks for the video.   Other than "small parts", I haven't seen/read any accepted practice or what advantages are provided with each. 

I'm taking delivery of the new saw on the 30th and once it's set up  I'll be moving forward to build a small one.

Thank you Raj, but please, not at the moment. :)

Kind regards,

Thanks Dick, I'll definitely take that route. I just need to find a Canadian supplier.

Do you mean bending of the actual long table or overall deflection of the long/short table due to the absence of vertical support at the long/short joint?

If the actual extrusions is bending you might try 40-4082 lite

Thanks for the explanation.
From the pics, it looks as if you had not much room to spare in your shop. I have done a dining table in a small space and I can understand you must have had quite a job of moving the, even half assemblies, around. What did the whole thing weigh when finally assembled in whole?

 [smile] Have no idea, but it will take at least 2, hopefully 4 adults to get it into the house! [big grin]

@Cheese  said, “Hit it with a burr trimmer and you’re good to go.”

Is a burr trimmer a thing?

Still wet.

Blackwood Kitchenette Benchtop  - Finishing.

Part 02. Sanding and Oiling.

Sanding:
ROTEX 150, Grits 80-120.
Makita ½ Sheet,  Grits 80-120
ETS 150 – Grits 120 – 180 Bottom Face and Top Face 120 – 150 - 240.
DTS400 [edges] Grits 80, 120,180 and 240.

After sanding the overall thickness was 39mm.

Finish:
Feast and Watson Kitchen Oil applied as per Festool Oil Instructions using non Festool sponge pad applicator and rubbing in with ETS150 using Green and White Vlies.

Sanding with 240 Grit using ETS between two coats on bench top face, ends and side. When doing this, the vacuum is not attached. In addition, I offset the disc holes to the pad holes so that the dust exhaust ducts within the sander are blocked to prevent residue damp oil entering the sander.

Note: the paler sapwood pieces will in the main be cut  out or remain under a sink tray when a sink is installed.

Materials:
Feast and Watson Kitchen Oil.
Festool sanding discs and sheets.
Festool Green and White Vlies.

Tools:
Rotex 150, DTS400 and ETS150.
Other - Makita ½ sheet Sander/ Sponge Applicator.

I have now started on the ensuite benchtop.
