    New Toy

    Went by the local tool store today, and must have parked too close to the loading dock. When I left, this package was in the back.

    Now, if I just had a shop to put it in...

    More pictures once it gets moved in and unpacked.

    How nice...you got a black saw to match your pickup truck.

    Congrats on the new toy. I'm green with envy.

    Yep, it is the The SawStop® 10” Professional 3HP Cabinet Saw with 52" fence.

    With the safety feature, and the quality of the saw, I just did not see a better option for a first table saw. A little pricey, but the safety aspect is worth it IMHO. (And, the LOML insisted on it )

    I hear they are a pretty nice saw for cutting wood.

    Horrible when it comes to slicing hot dogs though...

    You will love it, and over the rest of your life time (may you live a very long time!) it will become a very reasonably priced tool, and a joy to use, as any good tablesaw is!

    Congrats. I played with these in the stores and as others have noted; the tool is very high quality even without the safety features. Jackpot.

    There's usually more than one way to do it...
