Getting him started out well with the safety glasses

Hope you are liking that Ridgid, I sure have enjoyed mine so far.

Nice looking saw as well as a nice looking Grandson Deb. Enjoy both.

I sure wish it was, but no it's the cast iron top TS3660.

Not being familiar with this saw I need to ask: What sort of dust collection does it offer? If it is an open bottom there is a neat set up Sears used to offer for attaching a shop vac but it would be simple to convert to a 4" system. I really need to make plans for members to build their own.

There is a vacuum attachment underneath. But I just saw this http://store.workshopsupply.com/cata...oducts_id=2501 for those whose saws may not have dust collection. That would have been my choice if it didn't have the vac attachement.

The TS3660 has a plastic shroud around the blade below the table. This ducts out for hook up to a DC. Works OK but I'm sure it would work better if I had a real DC and not a dinky little shop vac on mine. Most of the time I just leave it disconnected and clean up at the end of the day. The shroud and duct seem to do a decent job on their own of directing the stuff into a pile around the back, left leg of the stand.
