ARGH!!! I was hoping for a push in the other direction.

So I spent some time online and I am tempted by the price and features of the Grizzly G0690: cabinet saw, riving knife, 3HP motor (I use 220 for my TS). Several LJs like the saw. I’m sure I would notice and like the upgrade.

I am not so eager to jump into the price range of the new Delta Unisaw or the Saw Stop cabinet saw. The Saw Stop mechanism is really cool, but getting cut on the TS is only one of many risks to life and limb in the shop. And the new Unisaw is – well – awesome, but how much of a difference would I notice relative to the Grizzly?

Once again it seems my woodworking hobby is being replaced by my woodworking tool collection hobby.
