Better news (Maybe).
I got a voice mail saying the guy in front of me is not ready for "his" delivery. They have his saw in California now and I'm next in line. So they say they can deliver now. I need to call this morning to confirm. The rest of the order of the option they don't have in stock would be UPS'ed.
My first question should be about the motor. Normally it comes with a 3hp Baldor (1phase/240v). My order is with a 4.5hp Baldor (1 phase/240v). I guess if it doesn't, what... they ship me a 4.5hp motor and I keep the 3.0? I'm not sure what of the options they don't have in stock... They mentioned shipping the 24" telescoping crosscut fence and mobility kit later. The fence is okay later... but I was sort of depending on the mobility kit. 1000 pounds is sort of a challenge for "me" to try to move around.
Some of the options I ordered-
For the sliding table:
- Positive stop miter table
- Clip-on Extension table
- Extra miter slot locking clamp
- 24 inch telescoping crosscut fence
- Spilt scoring blades
- dado shim set, scoring
- dado shim set, main
- Laguna finish dado set
- Assorted Laguna blades, 10" and 12"
- Extra blade insert blanks.
- mobility kit.
- rear extension table
I talked over most of these with you guys long ago. The positive locking miter table is something I saw necessary after seeing how the crosscut fence was designed, taliking with TSS owners, locking at a few Felder's and Altendorf's... and after many, many, many Skype conversations with Phil P. The standard crosscut fence is 48 with a 48" extension. I have another 24" extension for that. The pivot is near the cut line. The standard locking mechanism is about 10" (the saw is metric) from the pivot point... The positive locking miter table, besides making repeatable miters a no-brainer, changes the pivot point and also changes the locking point out to about 36", so supporting the fence better.
I already have some 10-20, 15-30 and 20-40 aluminum extrusion rip and crosscut accessory fences made up for this saw... (I planned ahead.) I have a plan for a different riving knife design... And a floating overhead crown with better dust collection.
