    Boo-Hoo-Hoo, sniff...

    Wasn't paying attention and set my Domino too deep and used it on some really hard wood, Darnit!
    $35 down the drain. Glad I had a spare.

    Then my table saw starts billowing smoke out everywhere!!Darnit!!

    Cool! A double darnit! Haven't had one of those in a while!

    I guess part of my tax refund is going towards a new table saw...

    Well, Murphy is hitting the road, he's over stayed his welcome. Anybody have a spare bedroom and I'll point him your direction if your lonely?

    I have it on good authority that the sure-fire method of driving Murphy from your home is to buy a new tool.

    Don't know what saw yet. I'm starting to look. I had the bosch 4000. Poor thing finally gave up the ghost after I have replaced the arbor bearings twice and ran 1000's of feet of wood through it. Now I want to upgrade. Not sure if I want to go all the way to something like a sawstop or pm66... I'm going to start casing prices and features.

    Looked at a replacement for my saw, around $700 give or take
    I thought about replacing the motor which would run around $400.

    So, I'll bite the bullet and look for a full size cabinet saw. I would like my next purchase to last as long as my woodworking will (lifetime). Any suggestions?

    Sorry about the Bosch. You know, I have the same saw (or almost). How long did you have yours?

    You're going to get a lot of "suggestions". What's the budget? My philosophy is get the best you can afford because it's the most important tool in the shop.

    Ayup, it's never good to let the smoke out. (Looks like you got a bit of smoke out of the Domino cutter, too.)

    For me, if the budget would allow, I'd be looking real hard at the Sawstop, preferably the 3hp ICS. If the budget was tight, I'd probably be eyeing the Grizzly lineup. There are a lot of happy GG1023 owners, and the G0690 line looks promising, too. And if I was really tight on money, I'd be looking for a good deal on a used Unisaw or PM66. But that's just me. Other folks will likely have other suggestions.

    would have to agree on the saw stop choice, saw one next to a delta unisaw and it was real close in price, but not in quality..the saw stop is made well!!!! and then my next choice would be a used general or pm66..your close enough to the border you might find some good used generals up your way.

    Oh, not good, especially on the smoke release... No red stuff released though, so take them as learning experiences and move on.
