Default Hectic start

Busy last few days
Day before New Years eve day,started milling rough stock for my kitchen cabinet project,couple hours into it the motor on my jointer burns up
Scour kijiji ( Canada's answer to Craig's list) nothing,after advice on anouter forum,stating its cheaper to buy a machine for the motor than a motor,find a table saw ,1.5 hp dual voltage,drive 5 hours round trip,table saw is mint,owner lost(?) the fence,never used the saw much,paid $100
Today,dis assembled saw and jointer,used stand and motor from saw,parts left over from dust collector/dust deputy morf and created jointer issue two
Happy with that,smooth quiet and powerful

My 3 hp cabinet saw is working well,but one wing is cracked,other looks like it was used as a anvil by po
Attached one wing from donner saw tonight,may do other side tomorrow,but that means removing recent router table extension removed nice 80 tooth blade from donor saw,stashed that
Leaves the main body,shame to scrap it

Great job cannibalizing the saw. take the frame to recycle center and get some money for it.
