By the time you're done with this video, and with a little practice, you'll be cutting runners with ease.
I bought a SawStop JobSite Table Saw about 5 months ago. I shot video of the unboxing process, and now, 5 months later, I'm releasing that footage, along with a thorough and in-depth review of what this saw is like, after having used it for 5 months.
Ever make a cross-cut sled, and struggle to get the fence aligned? In this video, I show you two very easy, very effective methods for squaring your sled's fence.

I just got as new SawStop JobSite table saw, and I was having a few problems "sneaking up" on cuts, because the fence kept moving when I unlocked it.
