    Gonna try to move on to the left side support now.

    Got the left side support installed, but man what a finicky thing to get the support brackets and rails right. Somewhat a different design than the outfeed. Had to fiddle with the ‘exact’ positioning of the brackets way more than I would have liked, but I finally got it set up square so it didn’t rack when I pulled out the support.

    Is that as far out the back support goes ?
    I thought it would be slightly more.

    No, it goes a lot more. Not near it right now, but about a foot and a half more or so at least.

    Side support is a foot. Back/outfeed is 16 inches.

    I checked my blade today with a machinist square. It’s out. Now I’ve got to fiddle with getting it parallel. Not looking forward to that. That’s usually PITA job. Says in the owners manual it should be fine out of the box. Ya, right!

    @boschmanbrian

    Thanks Kevin , I think I’ll be ordering those when I get a chance. Might take a drive to OPB or even Tony tools.

    Was your blade good right out of the box Brian? Mine’s out maybe a 32nd of an inch.

    Yes the blade was pretty darn close , it’s just the riving knife that was slightly off , also the extension table on the right side had to be slightly adjusted.
    But aside from that it’s good for my use.

    Haven’t checked the riving knife yet. Didn’t even think about checking it frankly. Thanks for mentioning that Brian!

    No problem , it just wasn’t perfectly inline with the blade ,

    Did you get your blade aligned? If so how hard of a job was it?

    Congrats Will , I would like to get one of those eventually. Looking forward to hearing what you think about it.i imagine that runtime should be pretty good.

    Nice laser, and you don’t have to worry about batteries leaking.

    That’s the one I would have gotten myself – I’ve been looking at those lasers for a while and they seem like really great ones. Running off the 12V platform sure is a nice feature too. Any specific reason you went with the red line vs the green? Or just cost?

    I was over at a neighbours yesterday. He is moving and getting rid of some stuff. I didn’t buy anything. He had a contractors style table saw he wants $500 for, which I thought was a bit much. He also has a small metal lathe that got my interest but I don’t have the room, or the time to get into yet another hobby.

    I don't do a fast job. I don't do a slow job. I do a half fast job.

    Admirable restraint, Jim. Although a metal lathe would be nice to have. lol

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    Sounds interesting , what sort of work or hobby did he have to need a metal lathe.

    A metal lathe is good for any hobby 😀
    I want one.

    Not sure what he did, just an all around hobby guy. He has a bandsaw he built for sale, but I don’t have the room for that either. I wasn’t impressed with the looks of the bandsaw. He is paring down. Bought a Shopsmith multi machine. He did say the lathe was once used for making medical equipment. Not sure what he meant by that. It’s not a large lathe.

    You neighbor could be asking a bit much for his table saw. I guess if he doesn’t sell for $500. He might take less. If you were interested in it you could make a offer.
    Oh a metal would be nice to have. I have often thought I would like to get one. Maybe someday I will get one.

    He did say the lathe was once used for making medical equipment. Not sure what he meant by that. It’s not a large lathe.

    Sounds like the lathe was used in production shop making small parts for medical equipment. Probably before they started using CNC.
    I know there is a small factory near where I work that did make medical stuff. But used CNC lathes.

    Lathes are highly addictive. Good to stay away unless you have lots of spare time.
