            Congrats on the saw, as soon as you get some of the bugs ironed out and get to sawing you'll love it. I know my wife loves hers.

                Congrats Daryl. Few things feel as good as getting a shiny new tool (and the older you get the fewer things that do )

                      Congrats!

                      Congrats , Daryl, You will love the saw. Now all you need is the stand, the light, and the EZ lift. I'm not kidding I have the extras and it makes it so nice. If,
                      God forbids, any thing goes wrong the repair shop in Tampa on Waters is top notch.

                      Good luck. I sorry the trip to Miss. didn't work out for you.

                      Later,

                        Congratulations Daryl
                        Just FYI, I have a DeWalt Type 1 which I love. I had need for a second saw in a different location and decided to buy (from Amazon) another DeWalt which of course is a Type 2. I was a bit nervous about the clamp and table issues which some of the Type 2's have had. As soon as the new one arrived, I quickly checked for table flatness and blade clamp function and I find no problem at all with this Type 2. I hope yours checks out equally well.

                          thats also what I am hoping Dale, I too ordered mine from Amazon.com, Tool King I think and it comes with a 1 yr guarantee from DeWalt also so thats a bonus in my court

                            Daryl, I hope it's a dandy. If everything checks out properly, make a serious attempt at top feeding. Bill mentioned to me that he always top feeds with his Dewalt. When I received my used Dewalt off Ebay a couple weeks ago I decided to give the top feed a try. I found it to be a real pain in the butt. So I went back to bottom feeding using a small length of 2 X 4 to hold the arm up. With tiny holes, that is a pain in the butt also. So, I decided to give the top feed a try again. Guess what? I like it. It just takes a bit of practice and a bunch of patience. Just like everything else, there is a learning curve. I'm glad I stuck with it. Now I can thread it thru the exact hole that I want instead of a hole next to it that I don't want to do yet. Just don't give up. The challenge is learning to line the drilled hole up with the small slot in the table. The easy lift will be a waste of money if you can learn to do it from the top. Give this a serious try first.

                                Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                                It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                                Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
