    I like the trailer idea Jim. Can't believe I hadn't thought of that, since I have a HD a mile away where I could rent a trailer by the day as needed. That saves me from having to use space at home...

  22. Mobile base for Sawstop PCS Local pickup

    This is the PCS base not the Industrial base.

    New in box, Giving Creekers first shot at it. $100

    Local pickup, it is pretty heavy.
