Topic tags/keywords: table saw

Some people reckon that Santa is a bit on the cheap side, and even worse names, But I reckon he is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME.
The Cartons arrived yesterday and I finished the assembly this afternoon. It works so good.
It is a Jet JPS-10-TS model.
Mind you there was a bit of a trade off with SWMBO. But I love her very much.
Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.
Thanks for looking and comments welcome.

Hey Bob, I know you were ahead of us in time a bit, but did Christmas happen there already????
I can see it already with multiple sleds for everything you can imagine!!
Nice machine, my friend!!

Looks like a sweet saw and a programmable open arm sewing machine! Another nice tool!! Need to post some projects from this machine too!!

Merry Christmas, Jim

That is a nice saw and a great swap too. My wife hates sewing, maybe I’ll try a big screen t/v for her. How did Santa get that down the chimney?

Nice table saw and sewing machine. Now you can make yourself a proper shop apron …. or maybe SWMBO could make you one with your name on it.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Wow! Bob Tony and I always said that you keep us in” stitches”now we can see why. The wife also wants a new sewing machine, could you talk personally with Santa and see if you could swing a deal for me, cause I sure would like to have a new table saw as mine is about 5 yrs old. Very nice trade off, and I am sure that you will make some of those sleds that I sent you, and we will start to see some fabulous segmented bowls. Better watch out though, Santa might want a new sled himself!!!

Thanks Guys, there is certainly going to be a lot of fun with the saw, Sadly I don’t touch Sewing Machines, that is my lovely Wife’s department. Last time I played with one I wound up with the needle thru my finger??
Blackie_ No Mate, no room to make it mobile at this stage. I don’t plan on doing big cuts, but that could change, who knows.
The reason it came early is that it was dumped into my trailer, 300lbs in a box and no way to get it into my shed, I couldn’t leave it outside could I so I had to open the box and take out as many pieces that I could and then Manhandle the last piece into the shed, well, I just had to put it together didn’t I.!!!!!!!!!!
Don, I’ll see what I can do Mate, it seems that Santa and I are buddies

I’m always good. Just ask me.
