    I had a derailleur hanger which needed it's threads cleaned up. Now I have a set, plus the two I actually needed. Shitty sell phone pic, sorry.

    Campy UT-FD0202. Front derailleur alignment tool. A tool for my OCD. No more wondering whether my FD is 1.5-3mm above the chainring or whether or not it rotated while I was torquing down the fixing bolt. The tool is plastic but it looks like it will do the job. It was ~$20.

    Are Campagnolo seriously branding things 'Campy' now? WTF?



    As any self-respecting European knows, it's...

    Maybe to attract a younger crowd? I had a chuckle when I saw the branding too. The box still says Campagnolo.

    Just got in some new tools and I'm pretty stoked! Knipex cable cutters, baby channel locks (not for bikes, just part of the Knipex fam), and the 10" adjustable wrench.IMG_20151215_131447.jpg
    Also scored a $12 32mm crescent wrench from home depot. It's perfect for most of my bb tools and has the added benefit of being good shop defense.

    Not bike related, but I'm pretty stoked to unpack this after work today.

    It's been ages since I bought a table saw but it's nice to see them coming with a riving knife. It's such a great safety feature. Nice looking fence too.

    In addition to the JIS #2 screwdriver for derailleur adjustments, I got dedicated 1" and 13/16" wrenches for my lathe tool post and compound. Never was a big fan of walking upstairs to get them or using an adjustable. Also got a duplicate set of wrenches for the basement toolbox, same reason.

    I had to look this up to find out what it was. On the way I found that UL now requires them on table saws.

    Will be real nice when every new table saw functions like a SawStop.

    I want a sawstop. I'm not going to stop using my PM66 until I get one though. Riving knife would also be nice. I think that the lack of one is why I got the PM66 for such a good price. It's an amazing machine, but there is no doubt it's dangerous.

    I hated riving knives until I witnessed a fellow student try to cross cut a sheet of 5'x5' baltic birch on a table saw in undergrad. Before that event I'd remove them because I felt they got in my way. Now if I think I need to remove the knife I immediately wonder if there's a better tool for what I'm doing.

    I'm partial to this one (Ryobi BT3100). It's not particularly powerful and won't cut anything thicker than 8/4 but I upgraded the blade and it is very accurate and smooth. The saw is stamped aluminum so it doesn't have the solid feeling of cast iron but the fence is great and the cross cut fence works very well. Current Ryobi table saws are junk but this one has served me well for 20 years now. In the 90s when I bought it, this was one of the few saws (at any price) that came with a riving knife. IIRC it was pretty cheap too, $300 when a decent Delta with a quality fence was $1000-1500.

    I had a BT3000, which is essentially the same size and design but it cost twice as much. I got a lot of good work done on that saw. The sliding table is a great feature, I really wish I could afford one of the European sliding table saws. I am not sure what happened with my Ryobi, after a while I felt like I couldn't adjust it to be tight so I had to slop it to one side. Still worked, it was just frustrating. It's been a long time, but I remember that the BT3000 had a splitter, no riving knife.

    This is a truing stand that I built with limited access to machine tools... Hours of filing... I've borrowed heavily from the P&K truing stand design for this (credit where credit is due) and it's definitely gonna take some tweaking to get this guy perfect, but it is very stable and surprisingly easy to use. My next big project is to recreate the Park TS3 (machined rather than cast)

    I could not disagree more vehemently.

    SawStop tried to litigate just that, requiring every manufacturer to license their technology in order to sell table saws in the US. Thankfully they've failed so far. There's no doubt the technology works, but how it works is of some concern. When activated, the blade slams into an aluminum brake block which must then be replaced at a cost set by them at $70-90. The blade is also destroyed in the process, costing an additional $100+ for a professional quality blade. Besides the tool costs there's downtime to consider. From what I've read, excess moisture in the material can also set it off falsely. Proponents will argue that it's far less cost than reattaching fingers, but considering there are other alternatives on the market that don't destroy the blade or brake, this carpenter will gladly wait for a better solution. Did I mention that the SawStop feature can be switched off? Can you imagine the consequences of that false sense of security thinking it's on?

    In the meantime I'll just keep using the ultimate piece of safety equipment: not sticking my fingers in the blade.
