    Hey Oily...what happened to the sawdust - lol! Why the change? I hear ya about not being able to find anything...my SO tells me all the time I need to clean up...then I wouldn't be able to find anything - lol! It's looking good. BTW, saw the Delta planer (I think) would you recommend it or another one...is is on my x-mas wish list.

          Kim, It's the cheapest one I could find ($260) that wasn't total Chinese junk.
          It's not a monster but for a 2 blade I'm very satisfied. Rob

              I have the same one and it was the best for the money. I've had mine for almost 8 years and could not be without one.

                      Well, turn the heat up, Oily ! It looks like a long winter. Hope you have good heat for the shop. I only have to worry about heat in the summer time. What is the most difficult to do, keep it warm in the winter , or cool in the summer? I'm talking about 100 F. in the summer. Now all you have to do is get used to where everything is. Good Luck

                        I hit 103 a few times in the shop this summer. What gets me is the 90%+ humidity that comes with it. I spent too many years in Wyoming, nice and dry.
                        I wish I was home right now.

                            by Bill Wilson
                            I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                            Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

                            High ceilings make a house look super elegant. You have the option of doing some cool interior doors that are not possible with 8 foot ceilings. A lot of the large very old houses in my area have those....

                            And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

                            Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....

                            I've been creating patterns for about 6 years, but I still haven't had any Easter patterns. And here is my first one - Easter Bunny. I plan to make more this year.
