    Got Table Saw Skills?

    My yearly trip back to Utah (where all my woodworking tools are) has been postponed until sometime next year or later and I'm looking for someone who can trim some lensboards.

    These are boards I made myself that fit a Kodak 2D and they now need to fit a Wisner which uses a little smaller lensboard. If needed I can send the one Wisner board I own to ensure an exact match.

    There is a somewhat sense of urgency as I'd really like to make some pregnancy portraits of my wife who is getting rather close and is also going to be gone for a month.

    I sorely miss my table saw in times like these and am more than willing to talk price with whoever can help me with this.

    Thanks,

    Alan.

    My saw is up and running. PM me if you like and I'll send you my address, I'm in New Hampshre.
    How much needs to be trimmed? It's probably something a cabinet shop could do, for just a few $'s, if any.

    Alan,

    I'm in Bergen County. My garage is a bit of a mess at present but in the near term I want to get my table saw out to my garage for the summer. Task number one was going to be making some 4x4 lensboards for my Speed Graphic. I can probably help you out - how soon do you need them?

    Thinking about it some more, if it's a light cut, I would probably just do it on the router table.

    or just use a hand plane laid on it's side, should only take 5 or so mins of not too tiring work.

    There is a small table saw which is sold by Harbor Frieght for less than $50. I it is about an 8x8 square power saw which I have found is very handie for making lensboards. Hope this option may help you or others which wish to make their own lensboards, but without a large cash outlay. Jon

    HF makes decent enough stuff for the price (and are now in NJ) - I use one of their drill presses among other things. You can also get a Ryobi 10" TS from Home Depot for $100 - maybe not any better than the HF unit.

    Go to Woodcraft, have a guy run a nicely tuned Lie-Nielson plane over the board.

    If a saw blade isn't just right, you'll trash the board. A good plane makes it easy.

    Thanks! I've been looking for a small inexpensive table saw to fabricate small parts like lensboards and shutter boxes. That seems perfect.

    If you want to send me a CAD file or a scan of a measured drawing or something I'd probably be able to knock something off for you - the only problem is I don't have a thickness planer... but maybe it's not a problem. E-mail me and I'm sure we can work it out.
