Snagged A Ridgid TS3650 table saw and a Ridgid RS1000 radial arm saw last night.
A BIG thanks to BOTIETRUCK for telling me about the listing on Craigs List.
It was an hour and a half drive down to Kill Devil Hill to look at it, but we hopped in the Excursion to look at the table saw and made it an evening (and half a night by the end of everything.) Got there about 7p.m., did the talking and ended up getting the RAS as well.
It’s AMAZING what you can get in the back of a Ford Excursion. We took the legs off the TS, slid the table, with wings, rails, and motor up behind the front drivers seat, then put the RAS in the back floor with the table upbolted but the legs still on, just slid the legs up under the extension of the TS, slid all the other pieces in including an 8 foot table extension for the RAS, closed up all the doors and headed home.
Got home after 10p.m. and went to bed.
More about Sunday morning in the next post.
