If electricity goes down, there is no Plan B, unless I buy another generator, which eventually, I will. A planer or air compressor might be too much for the little 2K unit. When I get a second generator, the Honda 2K will stay with the RV which is in effect, with the shop if I am not traveling. Dont have anywhere in/on RV to carry anything bigger. The next generator will probably be around 6K. I understand that those HF Predator generators fair out pretty well. Just trying to decide if I really need electric start. Sure would be nice. I have had a pull start before, in my old shop, actually, the one in these photos, and never had a problem starting. Hurricane Ike came through here in I think 2008. The marina where my boat was at was flooded and when water subsided there was no electric for almost a month.
That is when the generator really came in handy. My boat electronics didnt like it, but I didnt need them while dockside.
As for my obsession with a 50-52" fence, I cut all different size stuff.
I normally keep my table saw about 4' away from the roll-up gate. When I unload plywood, I slide it straight onto the table saw and start my cutting if anything has to be cut. Generally 36" is probably better than 90%, but every so often, I need longer. I still have about 6 or 7 weeks to decide. I am still leaning toward the Laguna Fusion 2 even though it has only a 36" fence. they run at around $1400. The grizzly will cost be a little over $2K with tax, shipping, and all. I think the laguna is far superior in all other regards. I could be wrong. Hopefully, the right tool will come along when I need it.
Down here I will need several large fans also, for the summer heat. Then there is a matter of insurance. It never ends.
I will give you a call in the near future
