Default Finally got my TS!

Got my first real table saw last week, couldn't be happier. PM2000 3hp. I mulled over choices for almost year. If it wasn't for it going on sale I probably would have gone with my original plan of the grizzly 691. But I think anything was better than what I did have (portable Dewalt saw).

Got it from CPO Outlets off ebay.. $2600 out the door, no sales tax, free shipping and 18mo no interest on my PayPal credit...sweet. The Sawstop was out of reach really..I was stretching my budget for this one..it'd run for almost 4k for the Sawstop and there were things about the pm I liked a bit better.

VERY NICE! Congratulations. Stick a fork in that one, it's Done. You probably won't ever find a reason to buy another table saw. May I recommend a Freud Glue Line Rip blade? Less than $100 and you'll think the edges have been sanded.

Wow that is an awesome saw Jonathan. I envy you. I just bought the DeWalt portable saw, lol. I think I saw a speck of sawdust on your new beauty. Better get the brush out!

I was going to get the Freud glue line rip but it states it's for wood up to 1" thick so I might get the Freud heavy duty rip 24t that's for up to 2.75"...I have to say the irwin marples 50T blade did great on 1.75" and plywood..

Enjoy it, Jonathon! You probably should have alternative blades for other uses...plywood, heavy timber, dense hardwood, etc.
Using an undersized blade...7" -8" thin kerf will give you better results on small thin pieces that you're ripping. Cheaper as well.
