Morning gumwood,

I thought so too. I didn’t know that the fence and sliding table were add-ons though.

As far for the motor, I’m not going to change it to 110. I’m going to install a sub-panel for my basement shop and add a 220 circuit.

One thing that I only realized when I saw the saw and outfeed tables was how large it is! It’s almost 7’ x 7’. I made a quick sketch of my shop floorplan and found it’s going to be a squeeze to get it in there as it takes up a lot of space. There’s no doubt that the saw will be the centerpiece of my shop. I’ll have to do some rethinking on the layout but the shop is in the middle of an overhaul anyway.

The saw I’m using now is a Ryobi 10” BT3100 with the small sliding miter table. Not a bad saw but it has an aluminum top, no real miter slot to speak of, and a fence that really doesnt allow for any shopmade add-ons. Also, I’m finding that while I’m ripping thicker stock or making edge cuts prior to resawing on my bandsaw the saw pops breakers or the blade just wobbles like mad and it’s scaring the heck out of me. This saw was fine when I was just using it for working around the house and making some small items but as I’m growing and learning some of the finer points and new techniques in my woodworking this saw is just not cutting it. Pun intended.

Thanks for the response.
