An excellent tool. Well made and sturdy. This should serve you well, Armand.

I also forget to lock the casters, on my drum sander, sometimes. Its fun to see it walking away as I feed wood into it.

Great job! The saw itself is very impressive, even the filming was very well done. More power to you. Many of the Pinoys can learn much from you.

Thank you LJ buddies, your comments are really inspiring.

One year plus has passed. How is the saw working? I asked Matthias Wandel once about making a frame from plywood and he was adamant it would not be strong enough but yours is pretty thick. Would you do anything different?

Still working good and has produced a lot of sawdusts including the award winning BarTop Wine Rack.
