Stationary Power Tools 101

In this one-day workshop, we will cover the basics of operation for the tablesaw, jointer, planer, drill press, and bandsaw. These are all tools commonly found in a shop, and we will demonstrate the proper use and function for all. Besides operation, we will also cover the processes and procedures for proper care, tuning, and troubleshooting of each machine. Students will get to work hands-on with the machines and have all their questions answered. Bonus content: If you’ve ever wondered how a SawStop tablesaw mechanism works, here’s your chance to find out as we intentionally trigger the SawStop mechanism as part of the workshop!
