As a hobby woodworker I started off working in my garage, fired by enthusiasm and Norm Abraham’s NY Workshop, my first machine was a Tyzack 10” table saw which was adequate but the top was quite small, the mitre gauge was a bit loose in the slot and the rip fence was not very solid. I used a friends Dewalt RAS to cut a load of stair spindles for a new banister I was making and I thought something like this was what I needed, but at the time I could not afford it, so I sold the Tyzack and bought a Hegner Unicut and Makita saw, which was a step up from the Tyzack. Fed up working in the garage (freezing cold and everything going rusty) I bought a 16ft x 8ft wooden workshop, which is much cosier and (thanks to a de-humidifier) rust free, but I found the Hegner was too big for the space available so I sold it and bought a Triton Work Centre. The Triton was really good for rip cutting (but not at an angle) but not so good for cross cutting, however I also bought the Triton router table and router and having the saw and router table in the same space was ideal for my small workshop. 5.The top guard should be easily removable and the top of the riving knife should be the same height as the top of the blade (for cutting tenon shoulders). The stand is a simple bolt together job, once I had done this, I laid the saw on its back with a piece of 75mm x 50mm timber under the front edge, then I laid the stand on its back and pushed it up to the saw and bolted it to the bottom of the saw using the four bolts supplied. Whilst the saw is supposed to be set up at the factory, it has probably had a long journey to get to me, so I like to set things up myself, and then I know they are correct.
The instructions on how to set up the saw up are not very good, I followed the instructions and then went over the settings again, using different methods, to get it right. As supplied, the riving knife is set so that the bottom edge of the blade guard is just in line with the top of the blade; this gives the maximum depth of cut of 80mm (and for the UK market is how it should be). The rip fence and carrier slides along a heavy chromed bar which is bolted to the front edge of the table top with two bolts (held captive in the bar). The scale is stuck onto an aluminium extrusion which you secure to the front edge of the table top by two large screws. The mitre gauge has two Bristol levers, one appears to lock the angle the other to lock the gauge to the sliding carriage. I have had the saw for a week now, it took me three days (on and off) to set it up to be how I wanted it so I have not done much real cutting, however I have made several test cuts. The mitre gauge is easy to adjust to the required angle, once set you lock the angle and then lock it to the sliding carriage (there are two Bristol levers) once locked it does not move.
The plastic dust collection shroud that is around the blade is not very strong and flexes quite a bit when the blade is tilted.
Record have come in for some stick recently on the quality of their products but from my point of view the quality of the TS200C is pretty good all round, except for the sliding carriage support fixing bolts. To change the blade you take off one of the stops underneath each end of the sliding carriage (by undoing one screw - photo below) and then slide the carriage off the saw.
The saw has soft start and an induction motor so it is quiet in use, it works fine on a 13 amp supply but when I start it up it initially dims the workshop lights. I know that whatever saw I bought, as supplied, it would not tick every single box and I would have had to change something to suite what I want. It fits in my small workshop, its powerful, quiet and rips and cross cuts accurately, I could not ask for more. Apart from the problem with the sliding carriage support fixing bolts and the poor dust collection, the quality of the saw is very good. I think it is good value for money and Record must have confidence in their product as they give a five year guarantee (that is two more than Festool). I don’t think it is manufactured in Britain but Record is a British company and in these difficult times I am proud to be supporting British manufacturing. In this photo you can see the tip of the saw blade is just above the table top whilst the top of the riving knife is just below the table top (this is not fully lowered, the blade does go down about another 6mm so it leaves the top completely clear). The stop on the underneath of the sliding carriage, remove this to allow the carriage to slide off. Thanks for your excellent review, Martin - it's nice to hear some positive things about the TS200 for a change! You could've spent ?1,000 on a table saw and you'd still have some work to do once it was out of the box. I think you'll find that Nick (British Woodworking) has added a flip-stop (THE flip-stop) to the fence his TS200. I hope this saw serves you well and I look forward to seeing what you can produce with it in the Projects forum!
It looks from the pictures as though your riving knife mod improves the guarding of the blade quite a bit.
Make a close fitting hopper arrangement underneath the saw unit so that dust falls to the bottom, the extractor hose is fitted into the bottom of the funnel. I want to build a cabinet base for it to sit on because, although the supplied stand is very good, the space underneath is wasted. You are welcome to come along and have a play, let me know when you are planning a visit to Essex (I am close to Basildon).
For me the non standard mitre slot is not an issue, I don't envision using the slot for anything other than mounting the supplied mitre gauge. I did wonder about the picture size (this is my first post with pictures) I will upload some bigger ones shortly. I have increased the size of the pictures and added an extra one showing the stop on the underneath of the sliding carriage.
I emailed Record at 10.30 this morning to tell them about the two bolts that had sheared off. This is what we're taught to do at college on the old Wadkin spindle moulders and the like. This topic contains 27 replies, has 12 voices, and was last updated by  Anonymous 1 year, 1 month ago. These were discussed in another thread, I was making an Amazon order anyhow so I threw these on.
The flat side hooks on a screw or nail on the wall and the angled leg holds the crown up until you get it into place and have a few nails in it, then you slide the clip out.
I just use the 3rd hands from FastCap to hold up a end of the crown or anything else I’m putting up high.
I was particularly curious if this would work out well instead of a drywall stand\jack but forgot to mention it.
I know that they were working on a extension wings for deck and siding contractors, that consisted of a roller top. I don’t think they would be a good substitute for what I use mine for, unless it was very small and light material.

Though the early Church Fathers were inclined to reject the idea of a globular earth, there were not a few among who found the theory of a circular earth an acceptable one. In illustration of the doctrine of a circular earth, terrestrial globes certainly could not have been thought of as having any practical value.
The rejecting of a€?classicala€™ geography and the impetus and rationale for this theocratic trend, while not originating with Cosmas, was synthesized and exaggerated in his works. Unfortunately, the book which he devoted to a description of countries, and which would have revealed his fine powers of observation, has not survived, like all of his other works - his Astronomical Tables, Commentaries on the Psalms, on the Song of Songs, and on the Gospels.
The Christian Topography contains references to nearly seventy authorities selected from among philosophers, historians, travelers, doctors of the Church, soldiers, and statesmen.


In subsequent Books (II-XII) he fulfills his secondary objective, that of revealing the a€?true doctrinea€? of the universe and the eartha€™s place in it, as defined by Cosmasa€™ interpretation of the Scriptures, confirmed by the Church Fathers (Book X) and even non-Christian sources (Book XII).
The heavens come downward to us in four walls, which, at their lower sides, are welded to the four sides of the earth beyond ocean, each to each.
This great dome is divided into two strata by the firmament; from the earth to the firmament is the present dispensation of angels and men containing the land, the sea and the inhabitants of the world, with the angels hovering close to the a€?roofa€? holding the sun, moon and stars which they controlled.
The sun, said Cosmas via Solomon, in rising, turns first toward the north, where it went down, and thence hastened to the place in which it arosea€?. In all this Cosmas passed beyond the position of most of the theologians such as Lactantius (the a€?Christian Ciceroa€? of the third century) who preceded him. To illustrate this interpretive description of the earth and the universe, the Christian Topography contains, in all probability, the oldest Christian maps to have survived.
The world, as expressed by Cosmas on one of his diagrammatic maps shown here, is of course rectangular and flat, and is divided into two parts: present and antediluvian.
Concerning the dimensions of the world Cosmas writes: a€?for if, on account of a miserable trade, men now try to go to the Seres, would they not much rather go far beyond, for the sake of Paradise, if there were any hope of reaching it?a€? The Seric or Silk Land, indeed, lay in the most distant recesses of India, far past the Persian Gulf, and even past the island of Ceylon. Cosmas, like all good Christian geographers, shrank from the idea of an inhabited part of the world in the Antipodes, separated from Christianity by an ocean belt near the equator. In support of the same truth, Cosmas quotes the added testimony of Abraham, David, Hosea, Isaiah, Zachariah and Melchizedek, who clenched the case against the Antipodes - a€?For how, indeed, could even rain be described as a€?fallinga€™ or a€?descendinga€™ in regions where it could only be said to a€?come upa€™?a€? Over against these disproofs of folly and error stands the countless array of evidences for the true tabernacle theory, for the flatness and immutability of earth, founded upon Goda€™s stability, and for the shape of heaven, stretched like a skin-covering over our world, and glued to the edges of it at the horizon.
Yet, after all, the Christian Topography will always be remarkable for other than the intended purposes. Unknown artist, A sketch of Cosmasa€™ pattern of the universe, Codex Sinaiticus graecus 1186, fol.
Unknown artist, A more detailed sketch of Cosmasa€™ pattern of the universe, Codex Sinaiticus graecus 1186, fol. The rejecting of a€?classicala€™ geography and the impetus and rationale for this theocratic trend, while not originating with Cosmas, was synthesized and exaggerated in his works.A  Both philosophically and cartographically Cosmasa€™ ideas were strictly dictated by his literal interpretation of the Bible.
Of these the PheisA?n [Pison] is the river of India, which some call the Indus or Ganges.A  It flows down from regions in the interior, and falls by many mouths into the Indian Sea, enjoying all of the same products as the Nile, from crocodiles to lotus flowers . I sold the Triton and bought the CMS with the TS75 saw insert, sliding table and the router table insert (into which I have fitted the Triton router).
It comprised two boxes on a pallet, one containing the sliding carriage the other containing the saw and stand.
I was then (just about) able to lift the saw up, with the stand attached so that it was upright. This is a good way of getting to know the tool and understand how goes together and how it works.
By releasing these four bolts (allen key supplied) it is possible to adjust the relationship of the table to the blade. You lightly bolt this in place, then slip the rip fence carrier (complete with rip fence) onto the bar and adjust the bar so the fence is parallel to the table, and the face of the fence is at 90 degrees to the table top, then secure the bar by tightening the bolts. In order to get this set up correctly I had to extend the fixing holes about a millimetre to the left with a file. The carriage slides on four wheels which are on pivots on a plate bolted to the saw body (photo below). However, as supplied, when you lock the angle it also locks the gauge to the carriage, the second lever seems superfluous. The sliding carriage has a good range and slides easily, however there is a very slight cogging feel to it when sliding very slowly (as if one of the supporting wheels had a flat section on the tyre and you can feel it every time it comes around) its perceptible but not a problem. It is easy to slide the rip fence forward (so the end of it is ahead of the back of the blade) for cutting real wood, it is also easy to flip the rip fence over for cutting thin strips. There is a small amount of backlash in both so, for example, if you go from lowering to lifting, for half a turn the blade does not move, until the screw catches up, but again this is not a problem.
I am using a Festool CTL33 LVHP dust collector which is pretty powerful but after doing some cutting there was a fair amount of dust left on the table and on the floor beneath the saw. The sliding carriage sits on four wheels which are in turn fixed to a metal plate (photo below) which is fixed to the saw body by four dome headed 8mm bolts with square shanks.
To start off with I had it plugged into the power tool socket on the CTL33 extractor so that when I started the saw it started the extractor. I don't think people do this often enough, to be honest, even if they make their voices heard on the forums. The 'before' picture looks to me as though the guard offers very little protection of the blade - I daresay it complies with the regs, but doesn't look like it does much guarding set that high up. It would be relatively easy to include a hopper of some sort in the top of the base to catch the sawdust. Whenever you want to lower the blade or cutter, for the sake of accuracy, you should always lower it that bit further so you can raise it in to final position, which will eliminate any problems with backlash or 'slack', if that's the right word.
When adjusting the saw for out-of-square corners, the user needs only to adjust the miter system instead of both the miter and bevel systems when laying crown materials flat.All DEWALT miter saws have a tall sliding fence to support larger crown moulding nested vertically against the fence. Mark, have you noticed any stability or durability issues under load for some of the longer poles that hold 150+ lbs?

With a rejection of the spherical theory of the ancients very naturally went the rejection of their globes. Some of his geographic descriptions are to be found as part of the Topographia, and a few fragments of the above writings do exist. Comasa€™ primary objective and motivation in writing the treatise was to discredit the a€?false and heathen doctrine of a spherical eartha€?. Some of his fellow Christian writers openly declared that it did not matter so far as faith was concerned whether the earth was a sphere, a cylinder or a disc. There is little doubt among scholars that the numerous sketches - of the world, of the northern mountains, of the Antipodes in derision and the rest - which are to be found in the 10th century Florentine manuscript copy were really drawn by Cosmas himself (or under his direction) during the sixth century; and are thus contemporary with the Madaba mosaic map (#121, Book I) and at least two centuries earlier than the map of Albi (#206), or the original sketch of the Spanish monk Beatus (#207). The theory of such a region, found in some of the pagan writings of the early Greeks and later by the likes of Macrobius (#201), Isidore (#205) and other perpetuators of pagan thought, was impossible, according to Cosmas, on two counts.
For many centuries following the fall of the Western Roman Empire, there appears to have been in Christian Europe but little interest in the fundamental principles of geographical or astronomical science. Some of his fellow Christian writers openly declared that it did not matter so far as faith was concerned whether the earth was a sphere, a cylinder or a disc.A  But this sort of rationalizing was not good enough for Cosmas. Cosmas undertakes, with much else, to explain the symbolism of that Tabernacle in detail.A  In calling it worldly, Cosmas explained, St. Predicated upon the concept of a a€?flat eartha€? and oriented with North at the top and Paradise in the East (right) where the human race dwelt until the Flood when they were transported across the now impassable Ocean.
And so the Brahmin philosophers declared that if you stretched a cord from Sina, through Persia, to the Roman Empire, you would exactly cut the world in half. The NVR switch is wired up but packed inside the saw body (photo below), I removed a plate from the left hand side of the saw, pushed the NVR switch through the resulting hole and screwed it to the side of the saw, then replaced the plate. I loosened the bolts, and used a 3mm allen key to set the gap between the table insert and the front and back of the blade (see photo).
I want to be able to cut tenon shoulders with the saw (not acceptable in the work place but acceptable in my home workshop) and lower the riving knife and blade below the table top to be able to use the top for assembly. This is best done once all the other settings have been completed and you can run some timber through the saw, measure the width of the timber as cut and, without moving the rip fence, set the scale in line with the fence.


The inner two wheels are adjustable for height only, the outer two are adjustable for height and also pivot in or out in relation to the blade, to adjust how easily the carriage slides. I wanted to be able to lock the angle but be able to slide the gauge off of the carriage in case I wanted to rip something in between cross cutting. If I need super accuracy then I can set the fence a tiny bit wide and close up to the final setting using the rip fence fine adjuster. The mitre fence moves up and down the sliding carriage easily, it is easy to adjust the angle and it has (adjustable) stops at all the normal angles. In adjusting the sliding carriage height I had to release and re-tighten these bolts and in doing so managed to shear the head off of two of them (photo below). You put the supplied rod into the hole in the arbour spindle to lock the blade into place (through the insert plate opening) and use the supplied spanner to loosen the blade securing nut (from the sliding table side) then remove the nut, washer, large washer and blade.
This was fine for the first four times I used the saw however, on the fifth time, the saw and extractor both started up but then before the saw got up to speed they both cut out. Don't know how you plan to rip your tenon cheeks but, I'd highly recommend this to anyone thinking of cutting tenons on a table saw.
I have raised a support ticket with Record, I will update this post when I get a reply.You could've spent ?1,000 on a table saw and you'd still have some work to do once it was out of the box. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. What was contained in the Scriptures found a more ready acceptance than what was to be found in a€?pagan writersa€?.
In the first place, the region, if indeed there was land there, would be uninhabitable because of the withering heat.
The theories of the Greeks and the Romans respecting a spherical earth and a spherical firmament encompassing it, in illustration of which they had constructed globes, were not entirely forgotten, but such theories in general were considered to be valueless hindrances rather than helps to the theological beliefs of the new Christian era.
This extensive travel can be substantiated through examination of his detailed description of these areas.A  As a climax to this unusually broad and worldly experience Cosmas embraced Christianity, going so far as to become a religious monk to demonstrate the depth of his conversion.
God had once explained to Moses on Mount Sinai exactly how the Tabernacle was to be built, and when it was found in the writings of Saint Paul that there was a passage which could be interpreted to mean that the Tabernacle was a picture of the world, it was quite natural for the Church Fathers to envision the world as a vast tabernacle: a tent with a rectangular base, twice as long as it was broad, and with an arched roof supported by four pillars. The dust extraction tube (100mm) is also inside the saw body (photo below), you simply push this tube through the hole on the right hand side of the saw, slip a collar over it and clip this to the saw body.
I set the gap at the back of the blade fractionally wider that the front to prevent burning of the wood by the back of the blade when ripping. As supplied, if you take the blade guard off and lower the blade to the bottom of its travel the back of the riving knife fouls the saw trunnion and is pushed into the blade, allegedly to discourage you from taking the blade guard off. I found the best way was to adjust all four wheels to be exactly the same height in relation to the plate they are fixed to (photo below). This is not possible because you have to loosen the angle lock Bristol lever to remove the gauge. I am no gorilla and I used the supplied spanner but it did not take excessive force to shear these heads off (as far as I can tell I applied the same force to all four of them). Errors will be corrected where discovered, and Lowe's reserves the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions including after an order has been submitted. Isaiaha€™s statement, a€?It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth,a€? was regarded as one altogether adequate on which to found a theory of the form of the earth, and it was accepted by such biblical interpreters as Lactantius, Cosmas Indicopleustes, Diodorus of Tarsus, Chrysostom, Severian of Gabala, by those who were known as the Syrians, by Procopius and Decuil. Both prophets and apostles, says Cosmas, agree that the Tabernacle was a true copy of the universe, the express image of the visible world. The GeA?n [Gihon or Nile] again, which rises somewhere in Ethiopia and Egypt, and discharges its waters into our gulf by several mouths, while the Tigris and Euphrates, which have their sources in the regions of Parsarmenia, flow down to the Persian Gulf .
Isidore of Seville in the sixth century.A  Two hundred years later Virgil of Salzburg with Basil and Ambrose agreed that even though it was a delicate subject, it was not necessarily closed to the Church. Opening up the main box there is a polystyrene tray containing the stand and all the bits and pieces (photo below) beneath which is the saw, mitre gauge and rip fence carrier (photo below).
Fix the adaptor to the tube that also has a fixing for the small diameter tube that comes from the blade top guard and then fix this small tube to the adaptor. It is unlikely you are going to turn the saw on with the blade below the table surface, but it might happen. Then fit the carriage and pivot the outer two wheels in or out until the carriage slides smoothly and easily, but without any horizontal or vertical play. This was pointed out in British Woodworking magazine and they shimmed the gauge to allow the angle lock lever to do just that, you then use the other Bristol lever to lock the gauge to the carriage; I have fitted a similar shim (photo below).
There is a work cramp on the end of the sliding carriage which you slide along the mitre gauge slot, up to the wood being cut, and when you tighten it down it clamps the wood to the mitre fence to stop it moving whilst being cut, simple but very effective. Fortunately I had a couple of spare 8mm bolts so it was not a major problem to put right, I will be reporting this to Record.
Thinking about it I should have expected this (hindsight is a wonderful thing) the combined start up current of the saw and extractor is going to exceed 13amps and I think I am lucky that it has not damaged the power feed from the extractor.
Men, however, such as Basil, Gregory of Nyssa, and Philoponos inclined strongly toward the Aristotelian doctrine of a spherical earth. Cosmas was most emphatic on the subject.A  Pagans, he said, a€?do not blush to affirm that there are people who live on the under surface of the earth . The way the saw is packed is very good, nothing was damaged or missing and it gave me confidence in the product.
Then with the carriage fitted I released the four bolts holding the wheel supporting plate, fixed the carriage to the table top with two lengths of 50mm x 50mm timber and six clamps (making sure the gap between the inside edge of the carriage and the back of the blade was fractionally wider than the gap between the carriage and the front of the blade), and then tightened up the four bolts (photo below), this technique was shown in British Woodworking magazine. Isidore of Seville (#205) appears to have been a supporter of the spherical doctrine, as was also the Venerable Bede, who, in his De atura rerum, upholds the doctrine of a spherical earth on practically the same grounds as those advanced by Aristotle.
For my part, in order to be able to cut tenon shoulders and lower the riving knife and blade below the table I ground about 9mm from the back of the riving knife, filed the rounded top of the slot in the riving knife to be square (photo below) and set the riving knife as low as possible. Using this method I was able to get the sliding carriage level with the table top and sliding smoothly and easily.
To remove the knife you remove the sliding carriage and the blade, then loosen the single bolt that holds the knife in place and jiggle it along a slot into the space where the blade normally sits, it will then lift out of the saw. Also, because the gap between the carriage and the blade is fractionally wider at the back of the blade compared to the front of the blade, once the timber has passed the teeth at the front of the blade it clears the teeth at the back of the blade so I don’t get any back cutting or burning when I complete the cut. But should one wish to examine more elaborately the question of the Antipodes, he would easily find them to be old wivesa€™ fables.A  For if two men on opposite sides placed the soles of their feet each against each, whether they chose to stand on earth or water, on air or fire, or any other kind of body, how could both be found standing upright?A  The one would assuredly be found in the natural upright position, and the other, contrary to nature, head downward. Having adjusted the shape of the knife it is simply a case of putting it back in the carrier, then back in the saw, setting it to the required height and tightening the securing bolt.
With these mods the top of the riving knife is now just below the top of the blade (photo below), so I can do what I want. I haven't seen the SM jig, is it like the one Norm uses, holds the wood vertical and slides along the mitre slot? It reduces the guarded cutting capacity to 60mm (photo below) but this is more than enough for the majority of my cuts, if I need more that this I can easily remove the blade guard, I have bought a square of 12mm Perspex and intend to make a blade guard that will clip on the rip fence and extend over the top of the blade when I am using the saw in this mode. If so then it would be easy to do this on the Record with the jig sitting over the rip fence (as there is no mitre slot in the table). Below the table is not bad, and the small hose is quite long (to streatch over the right hand extension if you have one) so it could be shortened.
I think the way I have it set is safer for everyday use, but it does restrict the depth of cut to 60mm.
Could you elaborate on what you did to the Kity dust extraction as I may be able to apply this to the Record.
