« Part 12: Shed is up! Part 13 of Shop Update series Part 14: Still making progress, still no pics :) »

Sorry, no picture this week. I moved a ton of things into the shed this weekend, tossed a lot of garbage, organized other things and generally speaking cleaned up the place. I want to wait until that is fully complete before I post a picture though. Might as well make my before/after pictures as dramatic as possible, right?

I’ve been on the hunt for the new table saw for a while now, and I have to say that Winnipeg is an awful market for used equipment. Everything is low quality, over priced, or in terrible condition. A lot of times, it’s all three. I mean $300 for a rusted out Delta XL-10? Really?

I have a possible line on a demo model Sawstop contractor saw with 52” rails. I have no idea what the asking price will be, but the dealer is going to give me a call on Monday. Personally I’m pro-Sawstop but I have to accept the fact that there is a budget to deal with here. Having said that, you do not see used Sawstops very often, and this one has never had a board put through it. If it’s anywhere near 60% of retail, I’d be hard pressed not to jump at it.

BTW: Good luck with the SawStop!
