After long thinking I decided to buy a new table saw instead of looking for how to buy festool options from Japan. And I abandon Festool that is very hard to maintain for Jananese resident.
Last month I found a dealer which can send tablesaw to Japan. That was Woodcraft though they rejected my first offer. I didn’t know why they refused once, anyway I could got Jet JWTS-10 contractor’s saw . That have very smart propotion, its morter is inside of the body ! You know my shop is so small that I didn’t think that I could have a tablesaw but this one must be available enough.
Now I can get the same sized perfect square pieces at a time for my project. Before I couldn’t do it and it took hours to make even unequal unsquare pieces wiht my festool TS55.
Comparing with Before what my shop is is like a heaven so I spend far longer time in my shop.
But another problem has occured.
I bought a UNIFENCE and Wixey Digital read out, and I installed them today, they are much longer than normal fence, for my shop only 4inces are very important. With four inches I can walk through between my tablesaw and workbench but wihtout 4 inces I must crawl on the floor to get some tools.
So now I am thinking about cutting my unifence down to 28inces. —This must be O-key, maybe no problem.
But I am also thinking of cutting Wixey digital read out . —I think this must be OK too. But I am unconfident.
Is there anybody who cut wixey digital read out before ?
If there is, please let me know how to and how was it.
But now I am happier than ever before !!
