In this book, professional woodworkers give all the information tool owners wished came in the owner's manual plus much more - what to look for when buying a table saw, bandsaw, or router, and how to tune them up for optimal performance. The information is presented in an accessible, easy-to-understand way, making this a quick reference as well as a comprehensive handbook. All the information is up-to-date and thoroughly researched.
The section on table saw, the cornerstone of any woodworking shop, is written by the recognized authority on the subject, and covers all basic operations including ripping, crosscutting and handling large stock. The section on bandsaw, a deceptively simple device, stresses the importance of tune-ups for optimum performance. The section on router covers bits, accessories, and a wide variety of routers, and surveys the router's many uses -- from edgework to cutting joinery.
Excellent color photos and a clean, friendly layout give this book on classic woodworking tools a fresh modern look. This clearly illustrated and photographed volume will quickly become the standard reference and is a must-have title for any woodworker. Buy this book before you buy the tool.
