In this episode, demonstrating table saws, (part one of a two part project) Norm used the following tools:
Items in bold represent the first appearance of that particular tool.
Neither the benchtop saw nor either of the contractors saws were actually used. Norm did use the hybrid saw to demonstrate the outfeed table he built for it.
Norm made much of the oak insert zero clearance insert, apparently unaware that it no longer seems to be available.
Overall, I thought this episode was quite well done.
Norm covered safety issues in great detail in lieu of the usual safety speech. There was no accompanying stock video.
No field trip.
