Well, after 3 years of waiting and planning, it is here.
My wife and I have committed to no debt so it took me a while to get here.
I purchased my saw from the local Woodcraft store. They have a new owner who is really trying to improve the store so I do not mind supporting him. Oh yes, the store is moving with in 1/2 mile of my house.
So I purchased a standard setup. 3HP - 52" - T-Glide Industrial - Cabinet saw. I did get the newer SawStop mobile base. Very expensive, but like the rest of the saw very good and over engineered.
I paid to have the saw delievered to my garage. They would not deliever to my basement.

They bring this on a pickup truck with using ramps and a furniture mover hand truck.
It is very well packaged.
I did move everything to the basement to check it out and of course I had to get a look at the new stuff.

Next, I will post the moving party. I think it will be pretty easy. 3 guys and an appliance mover hand truck..
Also, I have to sell the old saw. link Someone is going to get a very good deal. This will have to go to a local purchaser ( Atlanta Metro ). It's kinda of sad letting this go. I put a lot of hours ( and enjoyment ) into that base. It has been an excellent setup. It does have it problems and it's time to move on.
Then I am ready to start installing... I have 10g running from panel to wall plug, so I figured why not 10g to saw.

Oh yea, did I mention I decided to go for the Jess-em slider.. I really hate to have to cut those beautiful rails, but I think this will be an execellent setup. I am seeing the Jess-em slider in several of the magazine articles when the TS gets shown in pictures.
Most all of the pictures are posted, but here is the link to the album.
