Thanks Bob, Jim, Ken and P kennedy.

I really appreciate all of your replies, help and good wishes. This saw has a great fence for resawing. It is 6 or 7 inches tall (haven’t measure it yet) and really heavy stuff. It’s a shove and tighten type (no micro adjustments). I mounted the few things that had to be mounted, replaced the stock pretend blade with a real blade, adjusted everything that could be adjusted and fired it up. So far I have only resawed a chunk of nicely dimensioned pine 6” wide. It came out perfect (I checked it with digital calipers). The cut didn’t look jointed, but it was very good. So far, so good. My biggest problems so far have been getting the machine into the shop and then making some minor alterations to the shop to make it roomy enough to actually use it. All that’s done now except for some trim. I’m going to take a couple of pics tomorrow to show you what I did, how it looks and a sample resaw for you to judge.

Bob I do hope you are going to get your machines up and running soon. I’m really looking forward to getting your take on turning. And of course I’d be glad to help with start-up or other questions you might come up with. Of course with LJ you certainly don’t have to rely on me for help, but it would be fun for me to join in a little.
