    Wink Terrible, devastating news................and a compatibility question if I may?????

    As it turns out, my plans to purchase a Sawstop tablesaw just will not work. It simply will not fit in my trailer and allow me to move around, even with a mobile base, as it is 75" long with the 36" rails. I am sooooo upset. I'm having a hard time coping.

    So, to try to help with my fragile mental state, I"ve just purchased a MM16 and Grizzly G0593 8" jointer (with the spiral cutterhead). This leads me to my question.....can this Grizzly jointer coexist peacefully with a MM product in the same environment? Or will I have to constantly be stopping confrontations between the two tools? Should I enlist the Unisaw to act as some kind of mediator or Sherriff in order to keep peace?

    What to do, what to do???????????????
    Thanks, Mark.

    Mark, you're such a drama queen.

    Just take some pictures, post them, gloat a little, and let the 'poor' among us drool a bit.

    I shouldn't wonder: the Sawstop, despite being an awesome tablesaw, is absolutely the wrong tool for that.
    Where are we going? And what am I doing in this handbasket?

    Ya I agree Lee Saw Stop would be sploding all the time & flying off the handle. Better to get a Unisaw & good pair of Grr-rippers & get a grip in things before they fly apart. Besides that it less expensive.

    Mark get a welder & build two tip outs on the trailer to give you more maneuver room.

    Hey Mark,
    A unisaw, an MM16 and a jointer on wheels.... hope you have a good security system. You might want to ask Tod where you can find a mastiff

    You need twelve years of negotiations to settle on the shape of a table for your final negotiations.
