Ditto on the SawStop recommendation logic.
Thanks Everybody for all the input. My mind is all over the place in this purchase….It will probably be put on the back burner for now. I don’t have to have one and the cash flow is not good right now too!!!! Thanks again !!!As to value in today's world of plastic and aluminum claptrap, that price is a screaming steal. You can sell the jointer alone for $100.00 and move the table saw over on the stand. I'll admit the fence isn't the greatest compared to what's available on $4000.00 saws but it will do nicely. I think this will be the closest thing you'll find to a perfect saw for your needs and the price is right.
Hey Rick I appreciate the offer but I’m just thinking right now! Thanks a bunch!!I have a craftsman direct drive table saw you can have for free. Includes a homemade dado stack clearance plate, the homemade mobile base, fence with sacrificial fence face mounted, and a iter square with installed backing board. For what it's worth, I also have the manual.
The saw is underpowered for ripping thick hardwood and was replaced by a Grizzly 1023.
Pickup in Kernersville ... I can help load into a pickup.
Contact me via DM if interested ... one way or another this is leaving my basement ... soon.
