New Yankee Workshop Episode 102

In this episode, building a workbench, Norm used the following tools:

Throughout Season One, a warning chyron appeared on screen concerning the use of a blade guard when operating a table saw.

Items in bold represent the first appearance of that particular tool.

Although I don't remember ever hearing anything (perhaps because few have seen the episode in a long time), I'm sure the Chicken Littles must have been horrified to see Norm plunge cutting the bench top with the table saw—twice. A rip cut with the dado blade on the radial arm saw must have done them in altogether

If anyone had any questions as to the heritage of the Unisaw, the Rockwell label was clearly visible on the rear when he was grooving the oak trim.

Field trip was to Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

This episode was processed based on the full length original broadcast by PBS.
