So today I made the last layaway payment (finally!) on my craftsman table saw and went with my brother in law to go pick it up. It am biiiiiig and it am heeaaaavvvyy. Nearly 400 pounds of pure win :D
I already have my old Skil benchtop packed up to go on ebay, I get a kick out of the sheer size difference….
So prolly this weekend I’ll be puttin it together, then the first things I’m going to make are some ZCIs and a ramp (you can kinda see that the concrete pad its sitting on now is about 3” higher than the garage floor.
Actually, first I need to build a simple router table, THEN i can make the ZCIs. THEN i can make a tapering jig to make the ramp. Gonna be a busy weekend :D
And I get my first salary check next week, I already have a good Freud thin kerf combination blade, but I do want to get the PALS trunnion bolt replacements, and prolly a link belt. Oh and an Oshlun dado stack. I think everything else I need at this stage I already have. Oh I do need an adapter to go from the 4” DC port to my shop vac. Oh and a good extension cord, the one I have is too low a guage to feed it properly. I should make a list….
But hopefully I’ll have that all set up this weekend, then next weekend I can make the inserts and ramp and whatnot. Course, I need to get my truck fixed before I can bring home the wood to actually build anything big LOL.
