I am in the market for a 10" cabinet saw. I read the reviews in Fine
Woodworking and they gave the "thumbs up" to the Powermatic PM2000 and
I'd love to purchase either of these two saws but can't for the life
of me find them in Ontario. I called Powermatic in the U.S. They gave
me four phone numbers in the GTA of Powermatic dealers and they all

I've found Powermatic to be hard to obtain in Canada.
I know the Sawstop can be ordered from "House of Tools", which is a

Sawstop lists "Federated Tool Supply" in London, and "Normand
Woodworking Machinery, Inc." in Mississauga as their Ontario dealers.

Speaking of 'big guns', David Eisan, a Wrecker from way back, is the
top-dog at Federated.
If you want a great saw, don't exclude General and MiniMax...superb
Federated Tool Supply in London got me my Powermatic PM15. Give David Eisan
a call and see what he can do for you.
P.S. Leave your extra money at home when you get the mahine I can't leave
Federated Tools without spending a few hundred.
Stop in and see me at Federated anytime. We are across the street from
Fanshawe College on Oxford Street East in London.
I doubt you have been in a store like ours before, I just spent most of the
afternoon assembling a MiniMax Genius C26 combo machine for display. We have
Minimax sliders, Sawstop, General 350's, Unisaws, off shore saws and much,
much more on display and in stock.
