671Re: Accessories for a Yuba saw smith
- Jun 8, 2008Wow, what a deal! Yes, the SawSmith it's quite an amazing tool.
As for accessories keep in mind that it is at it's heart a ShopSmith
tool, so all the the accessories made for the ShopSmith Mark V will fit.
However not all are a good idea. You're safe with the drum sander and
drill chuck, but dado blade sets can be a scary thing on any RAS. I
don't stack beyond 3/8" in sold wood with mine because it just wants to
grab and run at me, and that's with a much better set than what you can
buy from ShopSmith.
Review the information in the owners manual for everything you need to
know, but temper the information with some common sense. Yuba and Magna
were trying (like Sears with their Craftsman RAS) to sell the DIY'ers of
the world on the RAS as an all-encompassing multi-purpose tool, but
while it was unbeatable as a crosscutting and mitering tool, doing
things like ripping sheet goods as shown in the manual is crazy talk!
Enjoy your new saw! Scott
