Table Saws, Miter Saws And Woodworking Jigs
Linden J. Walhard

You will, at some point in time, need more than one saw in your
woodworking shop. Table saws and miter saws are typically the
first saws purchased by those new to woodworking. Knowing what
to look for in a saw is the best way to ensure you are
purchasing saws that will meet your needs in the future also,
as your woodworking experience increases. Consider the
following when choosing woodworking saws.

Table saws are often the first power tool purchased for a
workshop and are, indeed, an important tool. Saws come in 120
or 240 voltage. A saw of 120 voltage will run on normal
household current, while a 240 voltage saw requires a dedicated
circuit which can be run by an electrician. A saw with 120
voltage is sufficient power for most home workshops.
Professionals generally choose the higher power saw. In
addition to the power of the motor, you should also consider
the direction of the tilt and whether it is left or right. Dust
collection is another factor you should consider. Table saws
create a lot of dust which is not only a hassle to clean but
can be a health hazard. Finally, look for a fence that is easy
to use, adjustable and accurate.

Another type of saw is the miter saw, which is important in
that it cuts angles quickly and precisely. There are hundreds
of miter saws available on the market. Reading reviews can
provide you with good information to help you narrow down what
miter saw is best for you. They are great saws for larger sized
projects, such as replacing the trim on your house or for use
with furniture making projects. These saws can be used on a
stand or on the ground, but a stand is the better choice when
there is a lot of wood to cut.

Woodworking jigs are also an important part of many woodworking
projects. They save time while also increasing accuracy. Jigs
speed up the process especially when you need to create
multiple pieces. In addition, the pieces will be more
consistent and professional. The jigs you need depends on the
project at hand and the results you desire. Taper jigs are
great for tapering legs on chairs or tables, for example. V
bock jigs are used for frames and boxes, while dovetail jigs
are used for dovetail joints. Jigs can be purchased in any
store selling woodworking supplies or on the internet, where
they are even less expensive. If money is really an issue, you
can save even more by making your own jigs with scrap pieces of
plywood. There is also a lot of information online about
woodworking jigs. You can find information on the variety of
jigs available, their specific uses and guides on using jigs
with your projects.
