What kind of things can I do with a table saw?

Saw Accessories

There are a number of accessories available to do just about anything. Here a few to consider:

  • Fences. This is an adjustable piece running from the front to the back of the saw. It can be moved different distances from the blade.
  • Miter Gauge. This fits into miter grooves in the table. It runs parallel to the blade and is used to feed the piece through the blade. It can be adjusted also to different angles.
  • Tenon jig. The tenon jig is used to make cuts along the edge of the piece you're working on.
  • Arbor. The arbor is the round piece that the blade is mounted to.
