Default put my new tablesaw on layaway today

Put a craftsman 21833 on layaway today. 3 easy payments and it will be all mine. 549 price on the saw. sears.com had it at 469 so I had the store price match their own website. Then 10 percent off for craftsman club. brought it down around 425 plus tax..... and i get a free blade with a rebate (not the junk blade that comes with it, a craftsman professional 24t rip blade). Wife says Merry Christmas.

Nice saw! I have a similar one, I think you will be happy with it, some will say "not so", I disagree. I can't horse heavy stock through the blade, but if I take my time and walk it through it cuts strait, smooth, doesn't tip with a full sheet of plywood on it... It's a nice saw! Enjoy!

Ive been going back and forth between trying to make my portable bench saw work, finding a used contractor saw, or buying a new one. Finally after dropping the words "table saw" enough times the boss okayed the new saw. I dont think she knows I already have one, albeit MUCH smaller and more dangerous to use (wonder if I can use that argument with her). Now the important question (since this is the router forum). Do I put the router table on the left in place of the wing or on the right outside the wing?

Jason, Prepare youself for a tear in your eye if you don't take my advise, cast iron top rust easy you need to protect the top starting day one. Living in Louisiana on day three my palm prints were better than any the FBI ever lifted. I tried several products over the past two years that were short lived and stained my wood.Last week I asked the questioned on router form and Johnsons Paste Wax came back with a lot of good reviews, see the postings on Special Needs Woodworking on this web site. Also I had a time finding some so I Googled it and found ACE hardware stocks it fo about $7:00 a pound. As for your new saw it will be your best friend in your shop.

Enjoy, Chris

Good looking saw, reminds me of my Ridgid 3650, I am sure it will serve you well. I use a furniture paste wax, figure automotive is configured for paint finish and furniture wax is for wood and wood finishes. One thing to determine now is "no liquids on the saw surfaces!!!!" I have almost lost friends over this one but it goes for me and every one else. To clean mine I use 0000 steel wool or 320 grit on a sander, I prefer the 320grit. BTW I do that for all cast iron surfaces.

Enjoy your saw and be safe take it from one who has had first hand----no left hand experience. I fought the saw and the saw won!! http://www.routerforums.com/shop-saf...nted-make.html

I've been told auto waxes contain something that will affect the finish you use. Johnson's paste wax, Minwax, or even a wax candle, will work fine.
