Like many a man, I took woodshop in high school and dreamed of one day having his own workshop to tinker in. But then life happened and I went and joined the US Navy. Twenty years seemed to drag by and I know find myself retired from the Navy, with a well paying job, and the enviable owner of not one but two large garages with our new home. I have decided to use the larger of the two (36’ X 48’) to fulfill this lifelong dream.
Since moving into the new house back in September I have been devoting a little time each day to reading reviews of table saws and planning in my head how I want to set up shop. I have been very patiently watching Craigslist and other classifieds waiting for that “right” one to come along. Yesterday, my wife comes to me and says “why are you waiting for a used table saw, just buy a new one”. After a lot of discussion I was given permission (enthusiastic permission, not just grudgingly giving in to my wants) to buy whatever I wanted.
The “tool guy” in me said, “buy the Unisaw” but the budget minded father of three daughters prevailed and I decided on the Grizzly G0691. The order was placed and I am now anxiously awaiting delivery!
Wish me luck!
