My HTPC is doing pretty awesome! Filled about 10TB and using Plex for my front end. Works really well controlled by my IPad and IRule
Nope. Not yet. SOON!
That's awesome to hear on the HTPC. Glad you like it.
I did get my table saw fence installed:
Update on the fence situation:
I got my VEGA PRO 50 TABLE SAW FENCE
installed on my old saw.
Happy to report it's absolutely wonderful! Special thanks to
for giving me the nudge I needed to pull the trigger, I had my eye on it for a while.
Installation was a breeze- it bolted right on and came with all the hardware I needed. I was able to use all the stock holes already there, the threads were the same, and the general process of installation was trouble free and as easy as I could have expected. It probably took about an hour to get the old one off and this installed, and that was with taking time to read the instructions and have some beers with my dad who helped me.
Here is some pictures:
First thing I did was take off the old crappy fence bars:
Then basically just bolted on the new one in a similar manner. The kit was very nice- it had adjusting plates at all the location to dial it in, basically you just turn the bolt/wrench until you have the perfect level, or perfect clearance. It was pretty well designed and worked well.
I now have a lot more rip capacity!
But a lot more importantly- I have very fast, accurate, efficient cuts!
The fence is easy to glide (easier than my old one). It's dead nuts accurate. I ripped a few pieces after dialing it in, and it's as accurate as I can measure. The micro adjust to dial it in works really well- but the fence itself is so good that a quick tap and lock is really all you need for a perfect cut- which I love how easy and fast that is to do.
And for the Bonus and back to something we talked a little earlier about
Yup. I did that too
Now all I need to do is grab (or make) a zero clearance insert and get a new blade. Anyone have a good suggestion on a blade?
I am leaning towards this:
I slapped a 10" version on there now I took of the miter saw (that I would like to replace) that I believe is 80T/10" so I am trying to figure out if a 12"/100T is about the same cut? I see they make a 80T version of the 12" but I really like the blade I have now, but I am open to just about anything. The saw has a 2.5HP motor I think, it never bogs down. I think it works with either 12" or 10" sized blades. I use the table saw a lot more than the miter, so I was thinking to just put this blade back on the miter and get a better one for the table- rather than just buy one for the miter saw. What's a great blade? My budget is probably $100 or less- but I am flexible.
