Shop Fox Cabinet Saw Is Here!

Here's what I've been up to since yesterday...the driver showed up on time and loaded it in the garage for me...he was a wwer too and was pretty interested in the saw. He wouldn't take a $10 tip but he did accept a nearly new box of chisels.

Ever notice that you need a saw to properly setup a saw? I removed the cosmoline with engine degreaser and it worked like a charm. I Needed the saw to cut the platform on the mobile base, so it's running but far from trimmed out. Still need to hook up the switch, DC, align it, bring it with the level of the workbench, and have much more work to finish install the router table and a new outfeed. Not much more time to devote to it today.

Well....the SF is the type of saw I've wanted to have since I first learned what it was. It was a purchase of opportunity... more want than need for sure. The 35% discount with free shipping and no tax was more than I could take! I really did like that 22124 hybrid, and still do. It was a true underdog that rose to all occasions ....Crapsman name and all. It even had 4" more cast iron than the SF, a paddle switch, a bit more rip capacity, plus it forced me to be fussy about blade choice/cleaniness/sharpness and alignment....I'll prolly get sloppy and lazy about those things now!

Morning doings....

Update: Added the Wixey digital read out that my best friend gave me in March. I opted to only use half the rail which gives 30" digital capability...the full two section 60" would have alot more overhang and my fence only goes to 36", so I'll have read the old fashion way for over 30". ...it's great having a generous friend who's also a wwer!

Scott: that looks like a nice rig, man....many years of fun, (and more importantly) accurate, reliable use ahead of you. Congratulations!

Is it a boy or a girl? What name did you give your new arrival? When is the baptism?


good luck

Now that I've added the DC port, it's a boy! We affectionately refer to him as "Jaws".

Can you smell that? What is that!?!

Ohhhh, that's the smell of jealousy drifting through the air!

That's one incredible looking saw there, knotscott. Of course I'm quoting here when I say we want a "full report and review" on your new member of the family. Congrats.

Here's a quote from an email I got from a friend over the weekend?

"
Hi Scott,
Did you hug the new saw yet??? I just want to pass on that after buying numerous pieces of new equipment, there is nothing wrong, or unhealthy about wrapping your arms around it and saying I love you!!!!! It would be weird to kiss it though as the stuff it comes coated in tastes nasty ( Don't ask ).. Hope you enjoy your new friend!!!!! Tom
