Ahh, the few days prior to my knowing anything about tools:
A Ryobi BTS10 10" table saw. Piece of @#$@#^ plastic saw. I only blew a
hundred, but still... Cripes. It should have held up a little better,
regardless of the YGWYPF factor. The depth adjustment bolt stripped out
after only about 30 or so working hours! The cheap crappy plastic base
has what they probably think of as rack & pinion bevel adjustment lost
all it's teeth very quickly. I feel I expected too much from this
horrible thing: I wanted it to work more than once.
All is good, though. I was able to replace the stripped out 3/8" bolt
with a 12" threaded rod and a cast-aluminum hand wheel. The whole thing
has donated it's internal organs to be transplanted into a custom
tablesaw/router table I'm building. So far, things are turning out
nicely even for a cheapy POS saw. Pictures to come as soon as I figure
out how to reinvent the bevel adjustment!
One day I'll replace the crappy direct-drive universal motor setup with
a decent motor/belt/pully system. If only to keep me from feeling bad
about using this thing with my nifty new Incra Ultra fence (*toolgasm*)!
a little benchtop Chinese drill press. Supposed to have a 1/3hp motor
and 1/2" capacity - I don't think so. It would stall drilling a 5mm
(3/16") hole in steel, and 1/4" in wood was a struggle.
