I run Tenryu on my 12" Bosch and 10" table saw for finish work; both wood and PVC trims.

Not worthless... I cut all my soffit with a backwards blade as well. Doesn't make me any friends because of the racket, but it sure is quick

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Fedex finally got the Festool TS-75 to me today, when it was supposed to be delivered Friday. Immediately mounted it into the CMS-TS-75 plate, but didn't get a chance to install the new Oshlun plastics blade, nor play with it at all yet, as I had to fix the hungry wife dinner. Grabbed a couple Corian counter tops with the plan to re-purpose them into some useful items for the wife, which will be a perfect test for the new to me table saw.

I bought that saw in '83 and used it until about 2008(?). It was killed on a job one day when there was some kind of surge. My buddy was cutting some trim and said the saw spun backwards right when there was a buzz/flash and about half a dozen townhouses lost electric.

Then I bought the updated version and used that for a few years before I bought the X2, 7 1/2" sliding compound.
I do not miss that old heavy monster.

I never turn mine around. No need to cuts just fine normal way. But I do use a good blade that only gets used on aluminum soffit.

It's been years since I've cut aluminum forward. Maybe I need to review my practices.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


After a Costco run this evening, I dropped by Home Depot to see if I could finagle a deal on the Packout's. Walked out the door for $177, which included a piece of 1/8" masonite to be used for building inserts for Systainer's. Might have to hit HD again tomorrow, and see if I can get the same deal again. Really I could use a few more Packout stacks to replace all the Ridgid stacks I have and be on just two tool box systems, not three.

I'm down in the High Desert for a couple weeks for nieces 1st birthday, grandfathers 92nd and Thanksgiving, and to change out a couple toilets and repair/paint a fence for my grandfather. He's been a carpenter in Southern California since his mid-late 20's up until 7 or so years ago (just doing little odd jobs for some life long clients) and he has that same chop saw/ also missing the guard. Its actually a great little saw, and is by far the lightest 10" saw I have ever used. I don't know if it's all of them, or the brushes are worn down or something else but man does that thing scream bloody murder when you pull the trigger. His hearing is shot, and I think I've found the culprit.

I keep meaning to ask him if he ever came across or knew of Larry Haun But he sure could build the hell out of custom cabinets with the only power tools used being a tiny old table saw and an all metal circular saw that was stolen out of his garage a few years back.
