    The ones I got were linkable, so just plug one into an outlet and keep connecting them. I donít give much thought to a pretty ceiling so some hanging wires are no bother to me.

    I didnít run any lumen counts, but I bought a 6 pack of 4í LED fixtures from amazon and have been very happy with them. Theyíre cheap, down to $20/light. There are lots of options out there.

    A 1.5 or 2hp 10Ē saw will cut through anything you can ft through the blade. Feed rate might be slower than a 3 or 5hp but thatís about it. Iíd guess half the Unisaws and 66ís had 2 and below hp.
