Sqeezing more shop into small space continues #6. What not to do with a rip fence...

Doesn’t it figure, you get going well with a project and SOMETHING has to act up… You cut the same board three times and it’s still too short, the wife insists on you changing priorities for that night and watching some chick flick with her, buddies show up with beer, or something breaks… And then it all comes down to a grinding halt.

Weight organizer

OK..I was about to order (literally, I was about to order the saw) my Grizzly G0690 when I see an add on Craigslist for a 2001 Delta unisaw with a 52” real Beismeyer fence, table board and legs and a Delta mobile base. I have been emailing with the seller and he assures me that the saw is like brand new..he bought it new in ‘01 and used it rarely for home improvement projects and some cabinet making.

Honest, I only went in to man the booth for the St. Louis Woodturners, but…. well, let’s just say that impulse control is not my strong suit.
