What an unbelievable cheek from the Taunton press. This book is a compilation of already published magazine articles. So it repeats itself in a way a book that had been written by a single author would not have done. It is also wildly out of date in places and lacks everything that an old magazine does when compared to a book on the same subject. It is always the same with companies that tell you how great they are. If they do not want to mislead they should be more honest about the fact that it is a compilation of articles. I would not have purchased this book if could have browsed through it. Shame on you Taunton press.
Excellent book, suitable for all levels of wood worker. This book shows hints and tips on how to get the best out of your table saw together with plans for jigs that you can make to use on your table saw. Well worth the money in comparison to other books.
I bought this book hoping it would help me to properly set up and fine tune my recently acquired tablesaw but I was a little bit disappointed. There was obviously a bias toward safety - the tablesaw is probably the most dangerous powered machine in a workshop - but I expected more tips on jig making and use especially how to safely overcome the limitations of use due to the fitting of the blade guard. It was generally useful but I am left wanting more!
