    That's a monster! I wonder how much a blade for that thing would cost. Probably as much as my whole shop or more.

    OK Stu now, deep breaths ......... I KNOW what you're thinking! No you can not use the carport floor for a table for that saw but cutting a slot on one end and running the other end of the blade through the trap door!

    But, if anyone could get away with it, I am sure you would give it a good go.

    Ed, thanks for the post, that is really interesting

    Maybe that saw cut this guy (or gal) up

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
