Congrats! I used to get bonus checks...I miss those days!

Super! It's really nice to hear that someone's having a good day....my employer (Kodak) filed chapter 11 today, just weeks after sending an official notice to employees that they weren't planning to do that.

So what saw are you going to get?

Don't think there are any still made here, and buying a used one would be a pretty mute point when it comes to supporting the US economy...

That is kinda what I thought, I posted in another thread that I won't buy used tools, unless I get one hell of a deal on the item.
Nothing against the used tools or their buyers, I have just been burnt a few times and my dad has pretty much replaced every tool in his shop more than once or has had to do extensive repairs to them just to use them, I refuse to do that

I think the Delta Unisaw is assembled here in the U.S., but the company is now owned by some Asian firm...

Interested in my woodworking, workshop and whatnot? See http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com, want to see my other interests such as hunting, fishing, off roading, and camping? See http://wildersport-outdoors.blogspot.com

After I heard that in the news. You can always get a job like thitz as a tool tester like you are now only get paid... bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Yea I was waiting on the Christmas bonus and then early January I realized you've gotta still have a job to get one. Oh well.

So you going to spread the love? Maybe walk in to your local Woodcraft, ring the bell on the wall and order up a round of chisels for everyone?

Insert witty signature line here.

Used to get checks. Now all I do is write them. The last check I got was from the waitress at Chilis. They lie, by the way. They SAY they're bringing you your "check". They're really bringing you a bill. Don't fall for it. Next time a waitress asks if you're ready for your check reply "Nah, I'll be needing that in cash please."

They both look like phenomenal saws. How much space do you have? That router set up would be convenient, but it could also be a pain if you want to leave your saw fence set but need it to support an aux. fence on your router area. Sure would be nice to have all that table length on the #2 choice. I think you can't go wrong either way. Just curious, why are you not considering the G0690 series? They have that Leeson motor which is a fairly well thought of name in electric motors. I think some Leesons are USA built still, though I don't know about that one. Just curious. Also, I will just throw this out there. Our country isn't a manufacturing country as much as a consuming country now. That being said, one can still support the economy by buying foreign tools locally. I say this b/c it's almost impossible to find new USA iron. If you do buy locally though you'll support that store, it's employees, and your local economy over an order from out of state. Flip side is you are supporting one of Grizzly's three warehouses and its employees ordering from them too, so buy USA I think actually goes deeper, but buying new helps the little guy keep a job too.

If that's the case why not take a look at a tricked out Saw Stop? But, of the two you're looking at I'd go with the G1023RLX. I think you won't notice the difference in most situations between 3 and 5 HP but the longer table will be very much appreciated.
