Now, the most common type of fence found on table saws at the moment (especially the cabinet type) is the Biesenmeyer Commercial “T-square” fence, or in most cases manufacturer's copies and offshoots of that design. It's the most popular design because it is easy to adjust and operate, is made out of welded steel, accurate, and best of all there is not much that can go wrong with it.
Elevation and Tilt Wheels. Elevations and tilt hand wheel The blade elevation hand wheel is usually located on the front of the saw and allows you to control the height of the blade, which effectively controls the depth of cut. In the case of 10-inch blades, the blade should be exposed around 3-5/8 inches at its maximum height which is sufficient to cut through a 4 x 4 in a single pass.
Table Extensions. extensionsIt's pretty easy to conclude that a larger table surface allows for the manipulation of bigger sheets of material and larger rip capacity. A lot of table saws have extensions located on the right of the saw which allow you to rip through large boards, or even 4 x 8 sheets.
Blade Adjustments. Axis Adjustment Modern table saws allow the blade to be adjusted in various ways. The blade can be adjusted both vertically and by changing its axis. Vertical adjustments are made by exposing more of the blade, which changes the depth of cut. This comes in handy for thick pieces of wood as well as for non-through cuts. By adjusting the axis of the blade, you can make cuts at a certain angle, thus making bevel cuts, which are good for creating joints.
Table Inserts. throat plate Table inserts, or throat plates as they are usually called are nothing more than thin pieces of metal or wood, mounted around the blade and leveled with the surface of the table. This prevents small pieces of wood from falling inside the arbor.
Riving knife an even better option would be to consider a table saw with a riving knife instead of a splitter. While both do roughly the same thing, there are some key differences between the two. The disadvantage of having a splitter instead of a riving knife is that the splitter is fixed, which means it doesn't move along with the blade. Because it's fixed, a splitter needs to be removed when making cross, non-through, and dado cuts. Unfortunately, many people tend to forget to put the splitter back in place when they start making rip cuts. So if you have a table saw which uses a splitter to prevent kickback, always remember to double-check that the splitter is in place.
Blade Types. Rip vs. Crosscut blades the two basic types of table saw blades are rip and crosscut blades. Rip blades have a smaller number of teeth and larger gullets, which means there's more room to remove the shavings and dust. These blades are designed to cut along the grain of the material on the table, but although they cut faster, the resulting cuts are rougher.
