    Thanks Larry...Nothing special, just a used contractor saw, anythings gotta be better than this old 8" Craftsman that I have to wrestle with every use

    Beautifully done. Well worth a 3HP Saw Stop IMHO.

    Great looking frames Ken. Going to be interesting to see what you do on a good saw though, not sure how you're going to improve.

    Those came out great, Ken. If you're doing work that nice on a junker saw, it'll be looking forward to seeing what you can do with a good one.

    Thanks guys! I appreciate your taking the time!!! That & making me have to adjust my hat size

    Not expecting personal improvement from a saw, but sure would be nice not to have to measure front & back of the blade in relation to the fence. Also, the fence needs squaring up to the table every-time it's locked, so it's tons of fun..........not!

    I'm not sure about those Saw Stops and their sensitivity, what with my 'electric' personality and all...oh wait, maybe that's 'eccentric' personality.

    you could pull the ol brer rabbit out of your hat. "ohh pleeeeze don't get me a new table saw! that's the last thing i need!". then again, this could backfire when she says, "ok"....

    Hey Ken, your idea worked for me. Wasn't a saw, but I got to use "some" of last year's return for a wide screen TV. But it cost me the tools I had my "mad money" saved up for. Jim.
