Did you get a manual for your saw? It says not over tighten vice and I know why

I understand now. Mine has 2 set pins in the rear stop. I downloaded the manual and recall reading not ot over tighten.

I assume you read the part in Judge Bob's saw thread about those little saws being a little bit tippy in the up position?

Default Saw goodies

Here are some additions I made for my saw.

1-2 This is a chip brush bracket, Wellsaw wanted a lot of dollars so I
made one. I bought the brushes that are reversible. I think it is
something that you should do.

3-4 I have a dedicated battery screw driver (junk store) that stays on
the saw to run a threaded rod out when cutting short stock.

5 This is a clamp I made for cutting odd shapes without using the vise.
The square slips into the slot and then turned sideways. It works
great but if I made another it t would be a little bit higher. I can I
just get a 3/4" plate under it and it doesn't need to be so long.

Great mods Digr! Thanks for sharing them wih me. I bought the expense blade brush from Wellsaw. Should have fabricated my own but didn't have any ideas at the time. Your clamp stop is a great idea. I could have use it many time with my old saw. I have never drilled and tapped cast before any tricks I should know about? The hold down for short pieces is on my build list.

Not a problem tapping cast, its softer than steel

The square that slides threw the slot in the table is threaded, just slide it threw and tighten until its crossways. It could be a little longer.
