Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to TablesawsBook - 2009
A professional woodworker, writer, and photographer, Anthony remembers getting his first tablesaw and wishing mightily that it had come with a good operator's manual to explain how to use it, how to take care of it, and how not to cut his hand off. He learned eventually, but now does unto others what he would have liked done unto him. He explains choosing a tablesaw, accessories, blades and cutters, splitters and guards, safety accessories, tune up and maintenance, ripping, cross-cutting, jigs for joinery, making joints, and dressing and shaping operations. Everything is illustrated with color photographs, and safety tips are everywhere. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
