Julie I'd happily wait that extra bit for a shop like yours! Unfortunately yours just wouldn't fit in my back yard

Thanks Al, it would be better bolted down, and if I had room I would do that. Along with the wider base I also have a bucket of concrete mix (about 75 pounds) that I am "storing" on the drill base for added stability. It was too heavy to put on the shelving...lol.

I got the book today and it is awsome you really need to look into it.

Thanks for all your support folks. Today I made a start on the grandson's go kart. I am on "vacation" this week so my ambition is a little lacking. I have to say I have LOTS of room to work out there now. Got to use the new miter saw today.. oh yeah it rocks. I haven't found a lot of use for the laser, I mean you measure, you know where you want the cut, you turn the saw on, there's the laser line, but you trust your setup so the laser is kind of redundant. But I did get perfect cuts, right on the money. Can't ask for more then that. I was only cutting some spruce and oak, but everything was nice and clean. Spruce splintered a bit at the end of the cut, I'm blaming the wood. A wood fence with a zero clearance slot would have prevented it. But it wasn't something that's going to be appearance important. Just a mental note for the future.
I didn't do step by step pictures, lets say I'm still a little shy. This whole design is just something in my head, and it's getting modified on the fly. I will show the end result.

Just a little bit envious!!!!

What was the verdict on the laser guide.

Deb sometimes I get that tear out because I go through the wood too fast, at least I think that is the reason, because when I slow down it doesn't do it. I find sometimes I am through the wood before the saw is at its full speed.
