If you decide to replace your saw take a look at SawStop. They have a full range from contractor to cabinet. The added safety is worth it weight in fingers. I have a 3HP Powermatic 66. I love it and cannot justify replacing it. If it was to disappear I would buy a SawStop. I had a Craftsman contractor saw for years and added a Beysmeyer T-Square Fence and that made the saw pretty good. However the HP was always the limiting factor. I have been spoiled by the 3HP Powermatic and recently went over to a friends to help him build a trailer mounted hunting blind. He had a Ridgid Contractor saw and was reminded how under powered a contractor saw is.

I'm looking forward to seeing the dragon carved. Cool 3D design.

Guy, I went with a Delta (36-5000). Ordered it last night. I only work with smaller projects now a days so power is not as important. I did look at the SawStop (great saw) but their entry model was twice the cost of the Delta. This is a hobby for me, one of many, so couldn't justify the cost. I also do leatherworking, stained glass, and digital art. They all seem to cost money for some reason.

Oliver, me too. And talking about dragons, I thought you might appreciate this piece. It took a couple hundred individual pieces of glass and many hours of soldering. I threw a strip of led lights into it and is now a nice night light for the living room.

From someone who has done a lot of stained glass work in the past, that is a magnificent piece!
