    Sawstop is alive

    Just pulled the switch on the saw. It works. Lot more trouble than I had planned to pull the wire and everything else, but I do believe it should pay off in the long run.

    Now for the fun part. I need to lower my out feed table by 2" as the SS is a lowrider of a saw. 34" total height. Once I get a full shop, I will eliminate the wheels and build the base up by at least 2", but that is a couple years away.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Fantastic! What saw did you used to have? Anyway, I'm sure you'll be very happy with that new one.

    You made a mistake. Since you are tall and I am short, the SawStop should be here in MY shop.

    Enjoy,

    Brent, I had the granite top Ridgid. Never did really like it.

    Congrats Steve, have heard nothing but good things about them. (green with envy) . I'd agree with Larry, would it be more advantageous to make the base taller rather than cutting down the outfeed?
