    Thumbs up Hot deals from Steel City - again

    http://www.steelcitytoolworks.com/homepage/Announcements_a.pdf

    Steel City has announced discounts on all of their current models, as they are getting ready to bring in new inventory. Of particular interest should be the cabinet saws which are all discounted $400 or more. They are moving inventory to bring in the riving-knife and granite-top models.

    The 18" band saw is now at $1300.

    The link above is to a 6-page flyer announcing all of their reductions.

    Happy shopping!!!!

    Nancy:

    I think you forgot the "ht" at the beginning of the address you posted.

    Are the ULS codes in your signature the designators for your laser tools? They seem vaguely like naval weapons systems designators, but I'm pretty sure that is not the case.

    No, I didn't Mark--look again--it's there.

    Yeah, I fixed it. I did a cut and paste on the url and obviously something got lost on the way from there to here. Sorry!

    If anyone on this board is from Canada and has questions about the diff in pricing, I have an e-mail from Jim McEntee, the Canadian VP of SCTW, that explains why. If anyone is interested.

    Yes, Mark, those are the model numbers of the two lasers we own. Universal has a couple or three series of machines and except for the M-20, I see no rhyme or reason for the designations. I guess they have a method to their madness, but I don't know what it is.

    Those are some great prices, boy, just under a grand for a 3 hp cabinet saw Man, I wish I had room for one of them

    BTW, Nancy, I made the link in you initial post "Active", so you can just click it.

    Nancy, how quiet is the 65110 dust collector? I ask because the portable DC we have in the school wood shop is so dang gone loud, I seldom use it unless we are sanding. Would like one that wouldn't give me a headache after 10 minutes. Decibels don't really work for me as I don't equate them to noise level as that isn't my area. Loud as compared to a TS, lathe, planer, etc.?

    Jonathan, that's the 1-1/2hp DC, and it's rated at 87dBa. That is louder than a table saw or lathe but quieter than a planer. That means that it's going be quieter than the Oneida 1-1/2 we have. We replaced the head in our planer this weekend with a Shelix head, and the planer is now quieter than the DC unit!!

    Nancy, the 65200 is the 1 1/2 HP.
    The 65110 is the 1 HP DC. So, will the 1 HP be quieter than the 1 1/2 ?? I don't mean to be bugging you, I feel confident in your answers and am trying to find something we will use daily. At this point it will be on a 4" trunk line with 6 outlets to the wood lathes predominantly. Then moved to the sander and table saw when needed. But going home with a headache from hearing roaring as well as the safety factor of not being able to hear each other is nonsense. Thanks for the information ahead of time.
