4 weeks early,but waited long enough.I cant believe how smooth it cuts. Gonna make a cabinet to set it on & bring it down to a more usable height for me. First job,I cut the lid off the box using the technique suggested by Mr.Herb Stoops & also used Herb's depth gauge to set up.I am a very happy woodworker. Best wishes,James.

Ya done good James. Making the cabinet will definitely be advantageous for larger cuts. I've seen some wonderful tables that add both width and depth to the saw's capability. Of course that really all depends on your room and needs. Glad to hear you're a happy sawduster. Happy Birthday!

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Way to go James, I am happy for you,and you had the best present for your birthday a person could want.You are going to like that saw. And now you can complete the jewelry box. Be sure to post a picture of the box when it is done.
I am happy the depth gauge worked for you, I use mine all the time. Now we expect great things to come out of your shop from the new saw. It will serve you well and you will use it on every project. Be sure to take pictures of the cabinet you make to set it on.

Happy Birthday James (a little early). A friend of mine built a cabinet with an opening for his job saw that greatly extended the top. He must have put shims under the saw to level it with the cabinet top. Neat setup. Your face in the picture reminds me of a kid opening presents on Christmas day. I also look forward to seeing pictures of the cabinet, and of the projects you make with that new saw.

Nice present James. I've had the same one for a number of years and it works for me. Only downside is it doesn't take a dado set. Arbor is too short. I use a 1/4" blade and work my way across or, depending on what I'm making, a router instead. That's really the only thing I've found wrong with it. Use it well and generate a lot of sawdust.
