Well, I finally did it, after months looking at Craigslist and checking out new table saws, I couldn’t take it anymore. I closed my eyes and hit the order button. At first I was going with the G715 hybrid from Grizzly, which probably been all the saw I would need. Then I started to think if it was going to be enough HP down the road. I would rather have more power and not need it than need it and not have it. So I started looking at used cabinet saws on C/L I found some, checked them out but there was always something about them that I didn’t follow through and they were a couple that I missed out on. Then I was really interested in the G0690 from Grizzly, very nice saw. Then I read a post on the Shop Fox W1819. This is basically the sister saw to the G0690, just check out the specs on them. The difference was the looks of the cabinet and the warranty 1 year for Grizzly and 2 for Shop Fox. Amazon has got free threshold delivery service right now and 6 months 0% interest. It’s on back order right now but thats fine, it gives me plenty of time to get my garage wired up for 220 and rearrange it. So that was it I just pushed the button, it was easy!

Congrats on the new saw…I think you’re gonna love it. Get it aligned, put a good blade on it, and you’ll be good to go for decades. Have fun!

Not having it come in for another 6 weeks gives me time to pick up a few accessories like a couple of new blades (any suggestions) maybe an Incra miter gauge. The miter gauge it comes has a fence with a flip stop that I could probably switch over to the Incra. All suggestions for accessories are welcome.
Thanks
Phil
