« Part 18: Saw drama... Part 19 of Shop Update series Part 20: Measure once, drill once, measure again, throw out wood. »

Not much of an update at the moment primarily because I am without a table saw. I’ve built the Jointer I picked up last week and I’m dialing it in now, but with nothing to cut the wood my dust collector cart is on hold.

I’m 99% sure I’ll be ordering a Grizzly 0690 but I have a 10% off coupon code that I can’t use until the 20th. As such, I haven’t even ordered my new saw yet.

Waiting SUCKS.

waiting sucks only when you’re eager to get something… good time to practice patience ;)

what happened to your TS?

I bought a Ridgid contractors saw, sold my jobsite saw and then returned the contractors saw after numerous problems and some uninspiring accuracy.

It was the right decision, it’s just costing me some time right now.

I still have my circular saw and my SCMS yeah. I suppose that I don’t really need a ton of precision for my dust collector cart…

I’ve been fixated on table saws for the last two weeks I guess :)

aaaah yes… when everything including cutting some bread for a sandwich somehow has the TS involved in it… been there many times ;)

if you were any closer you’d be welcome to come in to make cuts as needed.. maybe theres another LJ around you that might be able to help out?
