Well, we are taking very small baby steps. This past long weekend, we built 25 doors (we do have some minor things to finish on the doors), I managed to move our R4511 to the new shop and got it set up. I also built a large 4’ by 8’ outfeed table. I did use the R4511 for a little bit. I am still primarily working out of my small 18’ by 18’ garage and so I use my ts3660 (it is still set up in my garage) for everything. The R4511 is very nice and so far I am very happy. When I first bought it during the $300 sale, I put it in my dining room until we were actually able to move into a real shop which is now. So the saw has been stored in my dining room for a long time. The belt developed a few creases that seem permanent. So no matter how I adjust the pulley on the motor the belt still tends to run 1/3 off of the pulleys with 2/3 of belt actually on the pulley. I played with the adjustment a lot and could not rectify this and I am confident it an issue with the belt which will get rectified quick.
Setting up the shop will be slow going for us. We have a lot to do. We are in the middle of a kitchen that is due for install/completion 6/12/2010. We then have a wall unit to build and recently completed a bid on another wall unit that I think we will get hired on. So we will make the full move in between jobs as much as possible.
Well, we are having loads of fun!
Happy woodworking everyone,
