[QUOTE=DirtSailor;2074671.................Next challenge - it came with an ~84" fence rail system........ thinking about building a workbench that incorporates the entire fence Don't have the heart to cut that rail system down......[/QUOTE]
Mike, glad u got that saw. As for the fence, think about it for a while before you do anything. You may find that you use that extra length of fence more than you think, especially if you build furniture and cabinets. Just keep tellin yourself "I will cut it down smaller - Soon, but not today.
Try to come up with a work bench design that incorporates the full length of the rail using the space under it for storage. Then put the whole thing on wheels. BTW, if you build that cabinet/workbench, more than likely, you will be using the full length of the fence rail.
BTW, if you build a new work bench, you van remove the legs that came with the saw and incorporated the saw into the bench. if you do this, keep in mind that you will probably have to leave an open space or hole under the saw for the sawdust to fall down into. Maybe even a wooden box with a trash bag liner.
Enjoy your new hobby
