  • Is there a T Bolt size that matches the miter slot for TS 3650?

    Hi guys

    Is there a T Bolt size that matches the miter slot for TS 3650?

    Regards
    MiniMe

    PS: I am new here glad to see we have dedicated forum for these table saws and other power tools of the same brand

    The miter slot on the TS3650 is a standard 3/4" wide. If the ones you're finding are larger than that you could just grind them down to make them fit. Why are you going to use a t-bolt in the miter slot if I may ask?
    I'VE DECIDED I'M NOT OLD, I'M 45 -- PLUS SHIPPING AND HANDLING.

      I saw some jigs that need the jig to be tighten in position ...one simple example are the featherboards like below. Some times you need just a stop. The alternative is a mag switch or clamp something but a t-bolt is really cheap in the end. I am thinking about buying this set https://www.princessauto.com/en/deta...it/A-p8445389e but I need to know if the bolts fit the t-stot native to the table saw

          There is such a thing as a miter slot nut. You can see them on Woodpeckers website but they can be had from other sources too where you can get just the nut that slips into the miter slot. I think Peachtree Woodworking has them and maybe also from Woodcraft or possibly Rockler and no doubt they are on Amazon but that's a guess as I have not researched all these possibilities.

          This is assuming you're talking about the miter slot which is in the table. If what you are asking about is the T-slots in the fence yes there are also t-bolts available for those slots too and they are easier to find.

            It seems that standard t bolts can't be used
            • 5/16" - 18 bolt bottom plates are 9/16"W x 7/8"L x 7/64"H
            • 1/4" - 20 bolt bottom plates are 9/16"W x 11/16"L x 7/64"H

              I tried an elevator bolt then come in various lengths and 1/4-20 thread which fits perfectly the knobs
              It took me 2 minutes to adjust one to fit the miter track 2CAD a piece (2" long)

                Again, are you talking about the miter slot in the table or T-slot in the fence? Most people will call the 3/4" wide slot in the table a miter slot because the miter gage runs in this slot. It is undercut to have a t-slot shape but it's not known as a t-slot. Yes, you can use an elevator bolt modified to fit the slot.

                Is that your YT Video?

                    Here is another source for a miter slot nut.

                    https://www.infinitytools.com/shop-e...cks/t-slot-nut

                    They are sold in packs of 10 for just under $10. One dollar a nut is expensive
                    but 10 of them is probably all you'll ever need and they are better suited to the
                    task than a modified elevator bolt or toilet bolt.
