Exciting day today – the new saw has arrived.

Got the heat warming up the shop – gonna head out soon to start putting her together.

Very excited and blessed to have such a nice new tool to use. I agonized for quite a while whether to go for this or not, but now that it is done and here, looking forward to using this for many years to come. Will teach my boys how to use it as safely as possible and give it to one of them some day.

Congrats Basshunter.

Very cool, but there’s a downside I see. Christmas can only be a disappointment after already getting something that great.

Congrats it should be a saw that will last for years to come.
I would check any wax you put on your saw and make sure it does not contain silicone ,that will contaminate any finishes you try to apply to your work.

Thanks guys!

Everything is set up – this is such a huge improvement over the old tilting table saw. Working on making my own dust hose arm and we’ll be in business.

I found the motor was tripping the circuit at start-up (intermittently). Customer service was very helpful and overnighted a starting capacitor right away. No regrets on this saw so far!
