the time has come for a new table saw. My old one was not keeping the blade on tight anymore. I got ahold of a fellow LJ er and went to look at one that he had. It was a Craftsman that needs some minor TLC. Nothing I can’t handle. I pickied it up for $60.00. I am on a budget here so anything is better than my old one. I will post pics when I get it set up. Also I am getting a new video camera today. So maybe if you are lucky and been a good woody, maybe you will start to see some videos from me. (that is a scary thought). Just thought that I would give an update.

Rick, action videos are always a favorite of mine. :) I am looking forward to seeing some with you in the lead role.

Glad to hear that you have a new table saw in the shop. I am sure it was hard to cut anything if your blade would not tighten up on the old saw.
