    Nice package Howard. Grouping options into a package is very cost effective.


    I am sure you will enjoy this machine, both in terms of performance and safety. Having both crosscut fences is useful, depending on the operation. One example is putting a board to be ripped between both fences, using the stops to set the width.
    .
    Any plans for clamping devices?

    Great choice, Howard. I went with the 79 over the 48 for basically the same reason (and after Jim Becker assured me it would work just fine in my shop). You will absolutely love this saw.
    And there was trouble, taking place...

    My longest straight edge is 36. And I don't have a level that's any good. What should I be looking at to get this thing set up correctly?

    Don’t touch anything unless the saw doesn’t work properly, and if it doesn’t contact Felder as the machine will be under warranty….Regards, Rod.

    I am always astounded that new owners of European sliders seem to think the manufacturer sets up the saw wrongly and does not know anything. There is a classic example of this in a YT video where the owner blasts Felder because in his opinion the saw should resemble his old cabinet saw in all respects.

    Everything I like is either illegal, immoral or fattening

    I've bought a J/P and a band saw new from Minimax. The band saw took over a month of tracking down electrical issues and waiting for parts to get it to start. The J/P's tables were quite out of coplanar.

    I will be astounded if I receive a machine that is perfectly calibrated. But, hey, here's hoping

    I just watched a fella on YouTube go through calibrating his K3 Winner. It was not all that onerous a task. Pretty simple, really. I can find it again if you want.
