The cold weather has officially arrived with very cold rain and wind. But despite the unpleasantness I did get a bit done this week, mostly tuning the SawStop table saw (Their video is pretty cool)(save me loosing more fingers) as it was too horrible to go outside.
Yesterday wasn’t too bad outside so I could mix tile glue without getting drenched and frozen so I started tiling on the underside of the Island bench. Looking good Lewis.
Hell on my knees but.
I removed the perfectly fine OEM saw fence from the SawStop and fitted the Inca fence/positioner system to the bench as well as the router table and Triton router and the Incra mitre gauge. The Incra fence will cover both the saw and router and increase the accuracy of both. Which will help to make the trim around doors and windows look great.
The router fitted to the mounting plate with no problems at all. The height is easily adjusted from the top of the table and bit changes can be done from the top of the table also.
I checked the alignment of the saw fence with an indicator, 6 thousands of an inch difference front to back. The alignment of the blade was 2 thou front to back. I also tested the positional repeatability of the fence by moving it in and out shaking it about and then returning it to the original position. 10/10 times it zeroed out on the indicator which is pretty cool.
I also made a few more batches of passata this week, I will spare you more pics of jars of sauce though.
