<snip> If you are not doing framing do you need bigger than an 8" saw?
Dunno. But I've got one of the HF non-sliders, with a 10" blade.
As bought it'll cut about 5" wide. But I figured if I made a higher
"bed" it'd cut wider Planed down four chunks of 2X4, glued two edge to
edge, then two more on top, for a total heighth of around 3" or so.
Heven't double-checked yet, but know for sure it'll cut more than 6"
wide now (cut a piece yesterday), and figure when I get thru, it should
cut at least 8". Now I'm just trying where to figure out exactly how,
and where, to drill some h oles for bolts to hold the bed in place.
Doing this 'cause I'll be cutting a lot of same size pieces, however
some pieces will be different sizes, so will be using stop blocks to
keep from having to measure each piece - just slap a chunk down, slice
it to size, slide the wood down, slice again. No prob. I have no idea
if this has ever been done before, haven't even checked in fact.
Working just as desired tho.
