Wannabe woodworker and chip-carver. I want to build heirloom furniture and combine it with chip-carved panels and glass. Currently working as a chemical engineer, but looking forward to retirement. Sure would be nice if it would work out that I could use my hobbies as a second career !

My first post on here … There is some really amazing stuff on this site (which I had just discovered) !! I hope to one day gain enough skill to be able to post similarly awesome projects. Meanwhile, you folks are an inspiration to me !

I just bought my first decent (hopefully) table saw. Its a Rigid Tools Model R4512. I am still in the process of assembling it. It is really cold out in my garage (last night it was down to 19 F) so I am taking it slow. The previous model I had was an old Craftsman 10” that really wasn’t meant for woodworking. It wouldn’t even take a dado blade, and it vibrated so bad it would walk across the floor. This saw had many excellent reviews on the commercial sites, but I feel I have to take them with a ‘grain of salt’, if you know what I mean. Do any of you have experience with this saw, or an opinion on if I made a mistake or not?

Thank you for your kind attention.
