I got the PCS175 with the 52 inch t-glide, the 52 was only $100 more than the 36, also that was all they had still in stock so helped me make the decision, even if I don't use the extra rip capacity that often it is extra assembly space and I'll probably add the router to it soon. With the dado Cartridge and extra insert I ended up at about 3200.
Unfortunately I just got it stood up out of the box today, still not assembled, I. So busy renovating the house, mostly drywall this week, I haven't had time to build anything yet.Any impressions yet?
Menards had the Delta T3 Fence upgrade for a great price and was supposed to be delivered within a week. Was going to just grab that and upgrade my existing fence. But now they've updated the order to show shipping August 18th. Now I'm back to thinking about canceling that and maybe looking at a new saw.
Definitely look up safety instructions/vids. The blade spins opposite of a table saw so it may not be intuitive. Instead of kicking your work back into you, it will suck you in.So I found an old dewalt radial arm saw. I've never restored an old tool like this before. But I'm gunna give it a try. Motor still works too.
I almost picked up a radial arm saw a few years ago. I was at a ReStore looking for a solid core door and they were using the saw as a display shelf for other tools. The only reason I didn’t bring it home was because I’ve got young kids and it wasn’t obvious to me how I could keep the blade guarded if the machine was accidentally turned on by a curious five year old.That's actually how I got this. A neiggbor was throwing it out.
Hey I may be late to the game here, but you need to seal the ends of that log ASAP if you haven't yet. If its been sitting since you felled it, cut 6" off each end and seal it immediately with a log sealer like Anchorseal. You can get a similar product at Woodcraft if there is one local to you. Worst case, use latex paint.
