    Good family, excellent book, and a great resource. Hoping somebody comes up with some movies for them. My table is 3 or 4 years old and hasn't moved. Plus--since the table was not on the 1958 GWI...

    Those are not listed in the manual in all likelihood because they are shop made additions. See the part of the manual on making zero clearance fence faces. The MDF and red pieces look like fence...

    Does the Laguna 18bx come with the Driftmaster fence as standard? I was thinking that one had to get into the HD series for the Driftmaster to be standard. Either way, at $400 as a stand-alone...

    You might try Johnson's Workbench in Charlotte, MI (smaller store in South Bend, IN--you could probably order & pick up there saving 100 miles or so each way). http://theworkbench.com/hardwood.php ...

    I'm with you Jim--16-32 is what would really fit my work. But, at the right price i'll find a way for the 19-38 to fit. The 8-9 hour drive to Central PA is not going to work for me right now...

    I can't speak to the saw, but i have purchased from Big Sky a handful of times. The Grade A refurbs i've gotten have looked pretty much unused with perhaps a little (very little) cosmetic marking. ...

    I ordered 2 boxes late last week, arrived safely yesterday. Beautiful woods, the redwood lace burl is especially nice. Considering that Neal's mailing cost was nearly half the price--the wood is...

    Bill,
    I'll take those if still available. If you won't take payment beyond mailing cost, i'll make a donation to SMC. I'd offer to drive over, but it would be at least 2 or 3 weeks!!

    I'd agree with Mike on the Circle Cutting Jig--betting the holes in the arm to be 1/4" diameter. Nice set of dividers too, along with the wood. If you decide to sell the Performax, give me a...

    Sure looks like surface rust, that is a great deal. The router motor may be good--others may feel differently, but i'd be cautious on the possibility of rust in the chuck and definitely on the bits....

    If it's flat and not pitted, you got a great deal on that table. If it came with the lift, and the lift is functional--it may be the best deal you ever get. The plate opening is a standard 11 3/4"...
