    Why is it . . .

    Why is it that when you order equipment, accessories and a mobile base, the equipment ALWAYS arrives first?

    I ordered a Grizzly G0555 Bandsaw and a 6" riser block from Grizzly.
    I ordered a HTC 2000 Mobile base from Rockler.

    The saw is currently scheduled to be the first thing to arrive . . .

    In a perfect world I would assemble the mobile base, set the saw stand in the base and then set the saw on the stand and install the riser.

    I need to get a good general purpose blade to start - we'll see how nice the blade included with the riser kit is.

    It could be a fun week . . .

    Cheers

    Jim

    Stealth gloat on the new saw, huh?

    You will love the saw. Factory blade is so-so. Keeping mine for that chunk of wood that just might have a nail in it. Call Ellis Manufacturing for blades. Great stuff.

    Steve: Yes - calling Ellis for a variety of blades is on the radar.

    Frank: I didn't want to reply as it would get political - so I'll just shut up.

    Mark: No thanks - I'll put up with the irritation. I picked up my table saw on CL and didn't even use it for 6 months.

    It beautiful today, so I'm out cleaning the garage in preparation of the blessed event.

    Cheers

    Frank I had to back where i came from there was a time when everything was blamed on the communists. In the army we even got told the ice cream vendor was a communist putting drugs in the ice cream. Thats when we lost it.

    Quick Status:

    The riser block arrived yesterday.

    The saw arrived today. It's been unpacked and the stand is assembled.

    The mobile base will arrive in 2 days.

    I'm waiting for the mobile base before I assemble everything.

    Stand onto mobile base.
    Saw onto stand.
    Install the riser.

    Hopefully the assortment of blades from Ellis Saw arrives quickly (they said they would ship today) and we'll be good to go.

    I'll take some pic's tomorrow.

    PS : What's good to remove the cosmoline from the cast iron? This is the first new equipment I've bought with cosmoline on it. I have access to a Safety Kleen parts washer at LOML's work - that should work right?

    I know gasoline will do it - because the manual say NOT to use it because it's dangerous to do so. That means it works great!

    Cheers

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
