DIY Technical Thread

I think that instead of hijacking other threads about Steve's or any of the rest of our posts with technical questions on how to cut or finish or whatever... I'd start a place to discuss things.
I'll start,
How in the world do cut angles with my table saw correctly?
I can crank it over to the left from facing the front face, but not to the right.
Do I put my fence to the left side, flip the part, cut to a mark??
It is looking like I will need to cut some weird angles to make my Wicked One, how do I get from here to there?

I put the fence on either side of the blade.  When cutting bevels I always run the wood so it's not trapped under the blade so I don't burn and kick-back.  So, that means my fence is on the left side of the blade on my saw (the wrong side).  It can be tricky to not tear up the good face of finished plywood sometimes though.  

Make lots of practice cuts.  The fence scale is useless for angles other than as a relative guide.  I set an bevel on an adjustable angle guide and then zero in on it with the blade tilt checking both the blade angle and the finished cut.

BTW, even if you have a sliding compound miter saw, sometimes the table saw gives more consistent cuts.

For doing angles on any machine I would recommend picking up one of these. This makes getting the angle you need easier and accurate. The one I bought was GemRed 82305 from Amazon. It works great.

Deuce, that is cool. Mine is a old style that I have had for 40 years. No fancy digital on it!

For mounting drivers to the speakers I use these things.

And sometimes for angles greater than a 45, you have to run the pice vertical.

I use a slider with clamps for that...safest way I know.
