From your choice of table saw it looks like you care very much about shop safety. As you go about fitting out your shop and in consideration of the health of all those who are in it, please don’t forget about a good dust collection system.

I am in the process of completely renovating how dust is removed from the atmosphere in my shop. For the last couple of years I abandoned my shop due to the level of dust I was breathing. Then I discovered Lumberjocks and found out about all the innovative ways that have been developed to make home shop dust collection efficient and affordable. Before I started to visit this site I thought that a Top-hat was something that Fred Astair wore while dancing with Ginger Rodgers. Little did I know that to a woodworker a Top-hat was a device to remove saw dust before it got to the DC’s filter and plugged it up. I just finished building mine yesterday and “wow what a difference”.

With you having small children I’m sure that their health and yours are a primary concern to you. Use this site to get the answers on how to make a safe and healthful wood shop. Best of luck.
