Hey Os, No I didn’t take the picture myself. As Carl mentioned earlier, I got it locally from which opened their first physical retail store here in SC this past year. Woodzone Karl, and the other staff there have filled a major void in this area. There were only a couple places to get the more common items. Most of those are geared towards construction and framing. It was nice to get a dedicated WWing store. Their competitor here just partnered with Rockler and added about a 1000 SF of Rockler Merchandise. Yes Carl, I’ve heard through the grapevine that the classes are popular, especially turning. Good to see another SC WWer on LJ’s. I hope you get the Rikon. I’ve put very little mileage on mine and have found it as the hype declared thus far. I found that adding casters to the predrilled base holes sacrifices a lot of stability. I went back and framed a mobile base around the saw and it solved the top heavy issue. I poured a 50lb of leveling sand and about another 50lb’s of fragments from some heavy paving stones that had been broken. I do have to move it reguarly away from the wall for long stock, so I couldn’t do without the mobility.
