    My vacation home in the cascades flooded. Big mess. We had the whole house lifted eight feet. Under the house was designed for flood water to flow through & not be damaged.

    I can only see this problem happening is if you didn't do a dry fit with the clamps. Everyone does things differently, but I can envision lots of bad things happening without a dry fit.

    A feature of the Avid that some people will love & others will hate is that it ships in multiple boxes. You assemble it in place. No need for a rigger or forklift to get it in the shop.

    I would setup the canopy in your shop. Much more predictable that outside. I always mop my shop floor a few hours before I spray. I have very few issues with dust.

    One solution is switch to dye instead of stain. I find it much easier to control the color & get a much more uniform finish.

    Unfortunately being a woodworker requires being a mechanic, electrician & machinist at times. I don't know of a consumer level brand that does anything different than Grizzly.

    I might be in the minority, but I...

    I agree that you should find a hardwood dealer. If cost is an issue, I would price soft maple. Much harder than poplar and in my area it similar in price to poplar.

    I have the Grizzly universal guard on my SawStop & it does swing out of the way. You loosen a kip lever which allows it to swing toward the back of the saw.
