    Just stay with it and keep your head high - you'll get it done .For when I started I had no idea that it would become my main hobby either . I was and have made alot of bigger items until I finally started making the small crafts and them the whole thing blew up for me ............Good luck ............MB

            Just think...if you would have started using that saw in 2006 when she REALLY wanted you to make her something with it, you wouldnt be rushing now to get this piece done!! I can say though, I am guilty too of getting a new tool and then things come up and I never get around to taking it out of the box ( my Guinivere sanding system is just one example), so I know where your coming from there.
            And heres one to mention to your wife... Dale wants a new Jet mini lathe since you mentioned "The wife loves tools. I have to be careful about my comments to her concerning tools, or the next Birthday/Christmas/etc..... There it is. " Mybe she will buy me some new tools!!!
            Welcome aboard !

              Did this thread get hacked? That is a very strange sidetrack from KyivWorkshop.

              by handibunny
              It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

              I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

              This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

              What a morning. The therapists were quite pleased with what he could do. He took the wrap off today and he can walk with the walker with very little pain. It’s getting the leg completely straight that is hard to do. It’s when his brother stopped in that things went off rails. Rolf, we are talking...

              If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...
