    I would definitely love to save for a Reaxx. But with a $1300 price tag, I think that is too rich for the rewards list.

    Is it actually selling for that price or is $1300 the MSRP or something like that. The pre sale price of the 12v jigsaw was Way higher than what they are selling it for now, that why I’m asking.

    I don’t think it is currently for sale yet. I think I saw the $1300 price somewhere recently though.

    Saving for a 4100 or Reaxx. My GTS1031 is no more

    How long have you had your GTS1031 Eric?

    Since the beginning of August. Shipped July 31 2015

    Replaced a big iron beast, and I loved it without reservation until its untimely death

    Why not go the E-replacements and get some new parts??

    Ive seen what can happen to formerly stressed aluminum. I dont trust even the parts that look ok.

    Besides, the parts that are busted would add up to a good percentage of the cost of a new one. Safer to replace

    If I knew what happened, I would be more (or less) inclined to trust another 1031. As it stands, I would be a bit handshy around one.

    How about upgrading to a full cabinet saw? I have a hybrid one right now that i really like using.

    I had one. Sold it for the GTS1031 and the extra space for a bunch of other tools, and a real workbench

    I decided I could have a cabinet saw and not much else, or everything, and a smaller saw.

    Maybe the 4100 is the sweet spot

    Well not sure — the steel cutting saw was high on my list and it still might be what I shoot for, but I bought a Milwaukee Super Sawzall yesterday to cut my steel tubing and I think it will work better for what I need. At least that is my hope. Those Diablo carbide blades look like they will do nicely. So, if this set-up works, then I will be free to save/spend points a little differently.

    That make sense. Occasionally I do feel that my hybrid saw isa little massive but I do like the available space and power.

    For cutting tubing a Sawzall would be the better choice. The metal cutting saw is best to cut metal studs and flat metal pieces.

    I’d like to cash in points for warmer weather, but I don’t see that on the prize list! 🙁

    I see your piggies are just gathering dust. LOL Could be a good thing not knowing what to get till they build up substantially.

    Why would you waste your points on that? This, the first real freeze of the winter.
    This coming weekend the temps are suppose to jump back up above zero.

    Now that I have put in for the router, I am thinking I may save for the router table. I am thinking of just using the top and insetting into the wing of the table saw. I can’t remember who did that here, but it is not an original idea.

    Sven did that i believe. There is a whole thread on it with pictures.

    I seriously doubt that the Reaxx will make the prize list. It costs too much.

    I don’t know which table saw you have but the entire top won’t fit into the 4100, I thought about doing that once. And it was Brad that made an insert for his 4100 opening and just using the router plate in that, I do have the Bosch router table but would still like to do a TS router too Like Brad did.

    I’m sure using the Bosch Demo Hammer DH712VC for a few hours would keep you warm : P

    why not just pick up a plate from rockler or somewhere then? Why get the bench if you wont be using it. The plate is what $30?

    The band saw would have been a great choice as well. My thing is if you just need to cut tubing for this one project I am sure you already have something that could do the job.

    That may be an option too. The table has the fence and feather boards and everything built in was my thinking…..perhaps I need to do more thinking. My saw is not very deep front to back too.

    Great idea. I’ll be watching that adaptation, for sure.

    ahh see I was thinking you were just going to make an attachment for the saw fence to use it as a fence. I know shopnotes had some plans for that.

    This is the setup im running Costly compared to what you are thinking of doing but the weight of the cast top helps keep vibration down and i love it http://www.benchdog.com/ProMax

    Would like this at home, wouldn’t worry nearly as much with the youngest son at home. Or even on jobs, since it is primarily rental rehabs in the not so great areas. Right now if saw is on the porch we constantly plug and unplug. Even when set up in a house. Many times people are showing the house before it is done. like an added on insurance deal.

    My Kapex is hiccuping and if it’s not something simple like brushes, I’ll probably sell it and get a glide saw. If the brushes fix it, I’ll get another vac.
