    Forrest WW-II. I actually have two of the 10" sitting around if you want to get one or both sharpened and test them out. You know where I live... I'm using 12" versions now.

    They still have a lot of life in them, Brian...they just need sharpened/cleaned. Exact .125" kerf, too. (One of the reasons I stick with one blade type the majority of the time)

    That saw is Mint, Brian! I somehow missed it when you acquired this and seeing this thread for the first time. It looks pretty compact for a sliding saw.

    How are you finding it has changed or improved your workflow overall?

    I’ve noticed that Chris Hall has some mighty fine machines in his own shop as well and has listed a handful for sale recently. Wish I could afford at least one of them.

    Did you ever sell your Felder horizontal mortiser?
    That's just like, your opinion, man.

    Thanks, Phil! Huge improvement in the workflow.

    Chris’ machines are pretty sweet, he’s selling off the majority of them and changing to more compact equipment which can be kept in his basement workshop.

    Havent sold the Felder yet, but I want to make some room for a Japanese chisel mortiser.

    Congrats on the saw Brian. But I’m even happier to hear you are swamped with work. Well deserved.
