« Part 2: Scaring up some material at the local supply house. Part 3 of First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw series Part 4: Caster and pre assembly note »

I took delivery of the Powermatic. The fence rails seem to be the heaviest box in the group. I need to set-up my rotary phase converter this coming week. I’ll to get the necessary hardware tomorrow. The PM will need it’s own circuit according to the manual. I’ll have to call the RPC people and find if I can install the breaker inside the dedicated 3phase mounting. As the RPC is 20 HP I’ll not have any problem with the 7.5 hp saw motor.

I’ll need to make the saw mobile as my shop is too small. The answer for me will be to fabricate a leveling base. I tried to synchronize my leveler order with the delivery of my table saw. What I did was order my leveler’s about 10 days ago thinking that’d give me time to get the casters and be ready when the table saw arrived.

I bought some leveling casters from Cleveland Caster. Cleveland caster took my order charged my card and didn’t ship the order. I called them to find out what happened yesterday and they didn’t have anything. They said they’d call me which of course they didn’t. I called early this morning and complained mightily. I was sent an email that they went out today. No apology, no effort to amend their neglect. I won’t use these guys again.

Back to work.
