02-20-2012 04:19 AM by Rockne | 5 comments »

Long Story Short – Fingers are too valuable and I’m too inexperienced to NOT get a sawstop (I am a capitalist myself anyway). I sold my Ridgid granite-topped saw and bought a Sawstop 1.75 Professional Cabinet Model. Here it is arriving home for the first time: And Resting unopened comfortably. I probably won’t unpack it for a few weeks as I’ll be studying a good for an upcoming exam.
