Just a short review for now…..Santa just left it a few day go. It is a great saw, so far no draw backs. Cut out kitchen cabnets this weekend (3/4” ply wood) and it preformed like a champ. Well put it to the test in the weeks to come and have a full review, but right now a solid 5 start saw.

Tom, that is a nice looking saw that you have in your shop. And it should last you for many years.

That’s my dream saw! Wonder if that miter gauge is worth using?

Tom: Congratulations on the new saw, you will love it, I’ve had my industrial saw for a little over two years and is by far the best saw I’ve ever used.

I helped Santa give me one this year. I’m building the DC ducting right now, so I have a little critique: you’re denying yourself rip width capacity by locating the duct where it is. Move it to the right about a foot and you’ll pick up the full width.

I’m assuming that the saw on the right is the old ‘girlfriend’ saw? Don’t hurt yourself with this new high powered’ trophy girlfriend saw ;)
