SawStop Contractor’s Saw
My shop is once again “open for business”.
After months and months of house renovation, and other delays and distractions, the workshop is once again clean and organized enough to actually work on projects other than home improvement work. I can’t wait!
The biggest change to the shop during this long dry-spell was the addition of a new SawStop Contractors saw, fully fitted out with extra cast iron wings, 36″ fence, mobile base, etc to convert it into a hybrid-like saw. I got this saw as combination birthday/father’s day gift and it has taken me another month to get it assembled and calibrated (just an available time issue, it was easy to assemble and calibrate). I will post more on the SawStop as I begin to use it in earnest, but so far I love it. Fit and finish is top-notch. I like the power and nice clean cuts.
I will miss my old Dewalt 746 hybrid table saw (soon to be for sale on Craig’s List). It was a great saw that I would not have replaced for any saw except for a SawStop. The Dewalt did everything that I asked of it, but I did not want to teach my 9-year-old son to use a table saw on anything but a SawStop…so that Dewalt needed to be retired.
