Good Basic Table saw Video. A must for beginners
The Video was very well set up. I'm not a beginner on the Table Saw but I still found it very strong on good information.
All of us woodworkers out there need some friendly safety reminders . They went through some good tips and ideas on the use of Jigs. I happen to own a Powermatic PM 1000 which is the best table I've ever owned so I could relate to their techniques. Every woodworker regardless of Skill Level should have this video, and review it every couple of months.

Great review of basic operation and safety using a Table Saw
The DVD is a great overview of the operation of a table saw. The hosts discuss and show advanced techniques in an overview of what you can do with the table saw. It will provide definition of table saw termology, safety tips, the proper use and operation of a table saw with a demonstration of some advanced techniques. I feel that this DVD focus is toward someone who is new and beginners on the table saw.

Informational for a Beginner or Novice
This DVD is a good tool for a someone starting out in woodworking. It's got basic information about the styles of table saws and how to use them safely. While Christopher does have a point that you can get the same information from reading your table saw manual (highly recommended long before you make your first cut!), some folks get more from "seeing" something rather than just reading about it. I could recommend this video (wait for it to go on sale) to someone just starting out, but if you have any amount of experience using a table saw, I would pass this one by.

I was a bit disappointed ...the material was presented to fast and the table saw they had was light years better than mine. K

Woodworking Experience:
Extremely basic
If you know more than how to turn on a table saw then there is a little to be learned here. I'm no whiz at woodworking but it was too basic for me.

I just got my first table saw and I want to be able to use it to it's full potential. I wanted a small carp. saw. But they didn't have any so they traded me up to the next thing they had which was a 52" Cab. maker's saw, 230 HP, StopSaw with 2 52 inch roll out tables. Far beyond anything I know - but I want to know. Tired of reading the books which I don't understand 1/2 the time.
