    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.

    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.

    The saw arrived a week ago, shipping was pretty uneventful. A couple of little dings, but no obvious damage upon inspection. It was well packaged. And they used screws to assemble the crate. Minimax used nails, which is a lot more aggravating.

    But work is crazy right now, so it will probably be at least a month before I uncrate it and get everything set up.

    Now I need to sell my table saw and miter saw

    The sales staff was very laid back, almost to the point of disinterest. But once I did get an answer, I always received solid and helpful answers to my questions. And Ive never had a better experience coordinating shipping. They held on to the saw while my schedule cleared up. I enjoyed my interactions with them.

    I think I waited about nine months from ordering to get my saw.

    This should be helpful.

    I'd suggest joining the Felder Owners Group.

    Use the machine and don't touch anything and you might be surprised. Adjusting the table height is not just a simple exercise of screwing the height bolts up and down, the table in reality pivots around the opposite bolt and some strange things happen until you get your head around it all. Give it a go if you have a few days to spare in and infinite patience to go with it.
