Hey guys and gals

I just wanted to publicly thank sswoodworker for letting me purchase a table saw he had. I set it up friday and ran a test cut today. The test cut was perfectlly straight in every way. I think I may have found my dream saw. I have pics. They will be uploaded tomorrow after a meeting with another Ljer Jim Jakosh. We are meeting for coffee and then a short tour of my shop. ( it is still in disarray from the switch) I am also working on a new clamp rack system.

That’s it for now
