I had mentioned last year, following Back surgery number 4, that I wanted to get back into woodworking. My wife took that idea and got me a Craftsman Tablesaw for Christmas. I had seen a picture of this monster in a magazine, its on wheels and offers not only tool starage, but a place to store lumber too. Its Mobile, that is great, being Army, I move a lot. It takes up a lot of room, but holds a lot. Even fully loaded I can move it fairly easy.

Good idea. Is that the table saw that has the sliding top?

It always seems to start like that. You get one item and before you know it you are off to a whole new experience. Enjoy, and welcome to LJ’S and I too say with the utmost respect also, thanks for your service.
