Great score and this saw is a wonderful TS. I have the 3660 and couldn’t be happier with it. Even though I couldn’t buy it with a potato bin ;)

I would control the impulse to kiss, however :)

William, this is a nice story and it sounds like all of you came out winners in my book.

Grrreat story William, (you have to supply Tony the Tiger’s voice!) you both made out and both happy as a lark! I think you got the better end of the deal! Maybe make her something else for Christmas?

Ok, I’ve finally made up my mind. The radial arm saw is going on the back burner until I have the time to work on it. I honestly believe that with a little elbow grease I can get it running good as new and I’ll definately use that. The grinder is a different story. I hav two different bench grinder now. I have one under my lathe that I use fairly regular. I have another one I use for mechanical type jobs that may get used twice a year. I just can’t justify putting money into the grinder. Since I know it works though and can prove it (the lady I bought it from couldn’t even verify it worked), I’m going to list it for about fifty bucks on Craiglist and get rid of it. For me to use the grinder, all the wires need replaced on it and I’d have to run a new 220 line about forty feet to the side of the shop where I keep mechanic junk. The RAS I’ve got to rearrange some stuff and there’s already an existing 220 plug for me to use with it. I will have to change plugs though. That won’t cost too much.
