It's looking good Pete, some members may not realise that the saw is shown in the cross-cut position. At this point you can dispense with the lacky band holding the guard open. In your original post you also asked about the wheels, which I forgot to mention. Quite frankly I've found them to be a pain in the bum to operate and so simply drag the table as required. Do take time to set up the saw accurately so that the blade is vertical and the tips just touch the fence front and back when the latter is set to zero at both ends. Finally, as with all power tools, take great care and keep fingers well clear of the blade at all times.

Hi Harry

What's wrong with the pictures below,, tape on the power switch,rubber bands to keep the guard up ,the saw dumps the saw dust right on the adjustment bracket.. to set the saw at a 45 deg.cut one must stand on his head..but I'm sure that's the norm for you guys down under

Whatever the fence is set to is the size that exits the blade. What more can anyone ask for? I hope this post excites Gaia and makes him realise that his new Triton is NOT a toy.

Ok thanks Harry,
Regards safety I'm a slow and steady person with a bit of common sense and not inclined to take risks.

I'm not sure to which pictures you refer Bob, but here is a reworked shot of the saw showing a few of it's great features, I forgot to add that it has a dust chute for connection to the shop vac. Everything considered Bob, I reckon that this saw set-up has a great deal to offer, especially when you consider that in less than half a minute the saw can be removed from the table for hand held use and takes no longer to return to it's exact position because of the clever cam system used for alignment.
