I have discoverd that I enjoy working with Hickory more than my equipment. I am making raised panels on my small 6" table saw (Sears/craftsman from probly the 60's) and had to give the saw a brake between panels. the blade is new so I know it ain't that. the motor is a 5.4 amp 1/4hp that runs the saw and my joiner. it helped unhooking the joiner, but still slow going. picking up a 10 inch craftsman on Friday. but after all the work, I put the poly on the Hickory and it was all worth it.:thumbsup:

not sure of the model, but it's a 10" craftsman with a large table and heavy base. I should also be be getting my band saw. If all goes well.

Yea I think you need more than 1/4 hp. I didn't know any saw had a motor that small. I once had a saw with a 2hp motor and it wasn't enough. I don't think I would ever want to go below 3hp anymore.
