Hey guys, I’ve come here for a while, but just joined up. Thanks for all the advice in the past – I’ve enjoyed reading all the insights and opinions on topics of interest. But now, I have a specific question, and I’m hoping you can follow through with your typical sound advice.
I have a Shopsmith. I know, I know. But I’m wanting to get away from it, so I just bought a Dewalt 7480 jobsite saw. I’m concerned I made a bad decision. Here’s why:
1. The Dewalt is scary loud compared to the Shopsmith; (The SS sounds like Norm’s saw, at least from Youtube videos.)
Space is a consideration (2 car garage and 2 cars) so everything has to be on wheels and the smaller the better, which is why I went jobsite size, but I could probably squeeze a bigger saw in if I had to.
So here’s my question(s):
1. Will I get used to the sound? (One plus to the noise is it makes my pulse race when it turns on, which makes me respect the saw even more.)
I can still return the DeWalt and with that money and the money I’m getting from the SS, buy a bigger saw, but I was going to get a drill press instead…
Help! (and thanks!)
