On the 28th, only a week from this Sunday, my wife JoAnn & I will be heading to VT to pick up a long awaited Ridgid 3650 10" TS. It will be a 3hr (one way) trip to an area I used to travel over 30 years ago when I worked/lived in NY. It'll be nice to explore Bennington and Brattleboro on the way back & to have a nice out of town dinner with JoAnn.
I'm really looking forward to having a nice table saw after having to contend with a ~1952 Sears saw for ~40 years. Hard to imaging a TS that is only a few years old!
In the meantime, I've cleared out space & have recently sold a number of items on CL to pay for the saw. Originally, I sold some hunting gear (treestand, deer decoy, turkey vest & decoys, etc.) that was going to pay for the TS and to purchase some wood. After all what good is a saw without wood? I allowed the buyer to make installment payments, but the sale fell through when the buyer lost his job. I returned his deposit. So now the CL sales (camping gear, dog crate & Igloo dog house, luggage, including an old Sears TS) will take care of buying the "new to me" Ridgid TS.
I'm hoping I can control the dust better withthe new saw as table saws do make a lot of it, and my shop is right up against a family room/rec room area in the finished basement. I'm "considering" setting up the TS & also my Delta compound miter saw in the garage, but am uncertain about the cold winters. Regardless, I miss having my old TS as it is holding up a couple small projects - can't wait for the Ridgid.
