    Also got my power center hooked up

    Great pictures , nice idea with the power center
    I like the portable stand.

    Is that a 15A or a 20A feed? (I couldn’t see the orientation of plug tines on the yellow pigtail feeding the parent black power box)

    So the table saw stand will be your “power box” for all your jobsite plug in tools? Is that why you have so many receptacles mounted on the plywood?

    Are you at all concerned about the angle of the plywood? It is canted upward 45 degrees, facing the underside of the table saw, where all the unvacuumed saw dust rains directly down.

    I think making use of the space within the stand below the table saw is a clever way to achieve compactness, both in the truck/van and on the job… but I would be concerned about the concentrations of sawdust igniting during make/break arcs of unplugging equipment that might be still drawing current in the event that the switch was left on.

    I have run this setup for about six years now. I pull power from the range to a small breaker box with two 20 amp breakers. There is a 110 plug in the end of the box with the center tab broken off thus having two separate circuts of 110. This way I only have one heavy cord on the floor and never have to fight with anyone else for power. Also I am not constantly running to switch breakers.
    The saw is on one circuit and the vacuum on the other.
    I can plug my compressor, radio, and battery charger in.
    On my new setup the mitersaw will plug in here as well.

    This system works very well.

    I have 35 feet of four wire heavy cord and pigtails for range or dryer.

    I always make sure that all cords are behind the saw.

    i have a garbage can beside the saw as well.

    There is nothing in front of my saw to trip over.

    I can relate to “not having to fight with anyone else for power”.

    To make things even more interesting I replaced the 15 amp push button breaker on the gang box with a 17 Amp push button breaker.

    Nice idea on the power center to reduce tripped breakers on startup.

    I like the idea of using a split to power saw and vacuum. Is that an ivac or similar switch for the vacuum? Any delay built in when the saw is turned off?

    Yes it is an IVACand there is a delay. The vacuum is on its own circuit because they have a huge draw on initial startup. Ivac told me they have measured up to 40 amps. Even if it is for a split second it is enough to trip or blow. If you add a compressor to that that happens to kick in at the same time…. well nothing but frustration. So eliminate the problem.

    I take the same approach to my work. Give people nothing to complain about. Once they start they will tear you apart.

    I always say, a customer can walk into a job and see that it is a good job even if they do not know what they are looking at. But most people can see a problem right away and then they continue to look.

    1. A customer can walk into a job and see that it is a good job even if they do not know what they are looking at.

    2. But most people can see a problem right away and then they continue to look.

    I’m not so sure about sentence #1, but on sentence #2, I can definitely agree!

    If you do a good job, a customer will recognize it.

    I understand what CB is saying. A lot of customers can’t distinguish between a fair, good or excellent job (they just don’t know what to look for). Yes, they can often see the poor results, which will make them look even closer.

    This has got to be one of the sweetest setups I have ever had. Solid, the skil worm drive large version is awesome.

    I install about 50 kitchens a year.

    I couldn’t image carrying that around to do so little work. When I’m doing kitchens it’s in a production mode and the less tools the better. Just enough to get the job done. I put the same unit on the wall with much less.

    That lift comes apart in to four pieces. I am not doing nearly the lifting or body damage that you are. I can assemble four feet high and twelve feet long and lift it into place. This allows me to install with straight lines and square corners. It also removes a lot of crown problems.

    I have had rotator cuff problems because of this job and it is very painfull. this lift paid for itself on the first day.
