« Part 25: Wiring done! Part 26 of Shop Update series Part 27: Quick news: Wiring passed inspection! »

The last few bits of wiring have been completed, I just need the inspection and then I can fire up the saw. Speaking of which:

There are pics. Therefore it happened.

The saw is current on it’s mobile base thanks to the help of three buddies last night. I only had a half hour or so to work on it today otherwise, so one of the extension tables is installed but that’s it.

I recently picked up a Oneway Multi-Gauge and I used it to help align the extension. Very, very cool little tool. I’m sure you could build one with wood and a dial indicator, but having the heft of the cast iron body is very handy. Using this, I’ve got the front of the table flush within a thou, and the tables are level within a thou as well. Very happy with the fit and finish of this saw so far, even though I’ve really only started to work with it.

I am eagerly watching and awaiting your setup and first cut with this saw, as I am very close to buying this saw for myself.

I hope to continue building it this week and I should have my wiring signed off on Wednesday. If so, I should be cutting this weekend!

Looking forward to your impressions of the saw! I nearly bought one before a Unisaw found its way into my life

Have your say...
