    Unsubstantiated rumor.......My trigger finger

    got itchy.........So I pulled the trigger on a PM3520B..........It will be delivered late next week or the following week. I could have it tomorrow but I want that shop finished!

    I also bought the 18" bed extension.

    Photos following it's delivery.

    Thanks Keith.....Yeah it's got me worried........With the Jet Mini mounted on the "diving board"....if something starts cracking/splitting ....gonna let go...the 2x12 vibrates and I step away before shutting it down. I'm very nearly deaf.....I won't know on the Mustard until it slaps me in the face!

    Well Ken, you pretty much just suck.

    Congrats, you itchy-fingered son of a gun, you. Good thinking on the 18" extension, too. Who did you end up buying it from?

    I think I'll go wallow in envy for a little while.

    Mount a mercury motion switch so if you get to rocking & rolling to much a light will start flashing.

    Yeah......well the itch isn't gone yet..............more to's too dark to pull it again tonight......but tomorrow morning and/or afternoon...

    BTW....Vaughn.....I believe it's 20" over the bed....34" over the extension..... doesn't matter whom you buy it from. Not putting it on a credit card last week cost me $300-500. Amazon had them on sale for $2295 plus shipping. As of the 1st of September, Powermatic dealers all have to sell it for the same price or lose their dealer ship. That's what 2 different dealers told me today.

    Yeah......I cut a 6 1/4" x 6 1/4" piece of wood to remount my sprinkler control system to the wall of our utility room in the basement yesterday. I did remember where my 10 SCMS was....I use it to cut pen blanks!
