Every once in a while we get a visitor in the shop during a video shoot. This happened a few months ago when Greg Timmerman paid us a visit. He had some great questions about setting up his table saw, table saw blade selection, and routing dadoes in panels. Check out our Q & A session for woodworking beginners, and I bet you’ll learn something too.

    As with most of Georges videos, I learned a couple of things. I am not sure I agree, however, with the accuracy of the table saw gauge when you change blades. Since the distance between the base of the arbor, and the fence stays the same, no matter what type of blade. This would be true for a dado set as well. There may be a very minimal change based on the width of the carbide teeth and the thickness of the blade though.

    Keep up the great videos, George.

      I think the difference between your view of this and mine is left tilt vs right tilt. If the saw is a left tilt, like mine, the blade slides onto the arbor from the right, the fence side of the saw. As blade kerf changes or as you build up a dado head, the right edge of the blade is getting closer to the fence. On a right tilt saw the blade slides onto the arbor from the left. I think this is what you’re describing. In this case the distance from the right edge of the blade to the fence will always be, nearly, the same amount.

    Although I consider myself a bit more than a total novice at all of this, I REALLY like the idea of this type of ‘Q&A’ video…. I look forward to many more in this ‘series’…. THANKS
