jhearl Posted March 29, 2015 Share #1 Posted March 29, 2015 I'm wondering how folks use the tilting table on their Byrnes saw. Years ago, when I bought my Preac, I bought the tilting table accessory. I think I tried it out once but never wound up using it for a project. About the only thing I could think of to use it for was hatch coamings, which often have a bevel on the outside. But I wound up just doing them on the disk sander. There is something I could use a tilting saw blade for on a model. The bulwarks on a particular ship I'm building are made up of pieces shaped like a parallelogram in cross section. Like this: But I don't see any way to do that with a tilting table. It seems to me you can only make an angle cut on one edge. Of course, you could make the cut on one edge, then turn the stock around to cut the other edge, but with small stock, that would seem pretty much impossible and dangerous to me - I don't see how you could hold the stock for the second cut. (I'm talking about stock that's maybe 3/16" (4.7mm) wide). But maybe I'm missing something since I don't own the Jim saw or the tilting table. If you own this accessory, have you ever used it for a real project and, if so, what did you use it for? Thanks - John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
