Hi everyone Im A new member I found this site while looking for table saw reviews, this site is way to cool.
Last week we had A fire and my entire shop burned to the ground it was A 30×42 ft. bldg.and I had alot of stuff now I have to replace stuff I have to wait until spring to rebuild but its never to late to start to think about how I want to do things this time around.Im starting with A table saw and going from there. Thank you for any input Dan P. P.S. everything was insured but it still stinks to lose everything

Welcome to Lumber jocks :) Glad to have you aboard and am deeply sorry for your loss Knowing first hand how painful it is to lose one (mine wasn’t to fire but the other dreaded f- word Foreclosure) I know you will rebuild
and everything will be fine :)

welcome to the best and most addictive site on the planet. Sorry to hear what happened. How did you go about getting insurance for the tools? I was just wondering if there was anything left that would be salvageable?

Sorry for your loss of building and tools. Hopefully it was all insured. I had to sell my shop and equipment when I moved back to Iowa. It is kind of nice to start over with everything new. Here is your chance to say, what would I do different and what equipment would I buy different. Have fun planing and set up your new shop.

God Bless
