When you unpack a new table saw, whether it's a bench top, contractor or cabinet saw, the enclosed manual doesn't venture much beyond basic safety, assembly and set-up. That leaves some head-scratching when it's time to turn it on and start cutting. Where's the manual that covers all the things your new table saw is designed to do? Table Saw takes that next step with you. In addition to explaining the basics of safety and set-up, this handy reference will help you get the most for your money by getting the most from your equipment. From moulding to creating jigs, you'll discover the techniques and tips you need to maximise your table saw's performance. Even if you've been woodworking for years, you'll wish this was the manual that originally came with your new table saw.
