    Thanks, Alfredo. The years keep rolling by, don't they? We haven't communicated in a while - I hope things are going well for you. I'll send you a private note and fill you in on what's been happening in my life.

    Thanks! I decided to buy a SawStop. I go on Monday to order it from my local Woodcraft. I already communicated with them by e-mail to learn more about them so it's now just putting up the money.

    Probably the professional model. I'm going to talk with them about the Industrial model but it's a bit expensive. If I did go with the industrial, I'd only go for the 3HP.

    I have a Biesemeyer fence on my existing saw that I'm going to move over so I'll buy the SS without a fence.

    I thought I'd then offer my old craftsman contractor's saw with my crosscut sled and pitch it as a dedicated crosscut saw. It still has a lot of use in it (and it's served me well for many years) so I hate to see it junked.

    There was an table saw accident at school recently. I guy reached over the saw before it had spun down and cut three fingers - not off, but messed them up pretty bad. I'm careful but I know that I can make mistakes (oh, can I make mistakes!!). I view the SS purchase as an upgrade to a cabinet saw, but also as the purchase of an insurance policy.

    Well, I ordered the SawStop today. Professional model without fence. He said he could have it in by this coming weekend but that's too soon for me. I'd like to finish a project I have in progress before tearing the shop apart to put in a new saw. So maybe the following weekend.

    Pictures will follow.
