I finally got my first table saw up and running last weekend. I can finally start on all the projects I have planned.

Congrats. It’s the heart of the shop. You will be able to appreciate it even more as you do more with it. As always, be safe and don’t take short cuts.

Enjoy the new toy!

That is the same one that I am planning to get, what do you think of it so far? Does it have a miter gauge groove on both sides, your fence may be covering it .

It does have the miter gauge slots on both sides, as far as the saw itself? The quality is pretty incredible, once you set the thing up it just is a beast. I like the fact you have to assemble the whole thing, that way you know it is done right because you do it yourself. Some of the issues that others had I did not (hard to correct wobble etc) but I will warn you that make sure you have a friend that has a truck, because if you do not do the lift-gate service you will need a truck. Oh and have a few friends because this thing is super heavy.

Quite a contrast with my first, which was a Sears portable (you could carry it with one hand) that used a 7 1/2” blade (not 7 1/4” or 8”). That’s how I learned to sharpen blades, for better or worse. It was totally gutless, but I did a lot of work with that little thing. I thought all TSs were gutless, because my dad’s TS was a 50s vintage with a 1/2 hp. Dunlap motor. It loved to trip the overload protector. Eventually I graduated to a contractor’s saw.
