The sliding miter was the deciding feature for my buying the BT3000 in
May 1992. Our son bought the motor upgrade as a gift. I let the gear
for height adjusting get dirty and stripped it and now TRY to remember
to clean it from time to time. Changing the two belts is no fun at
all! I got the PS Panel Cutting jig for ply panels, slick.

lol....Well if we get any upgrades we have to buy them ourselves our son
only has the pennies we let him carry around in his pocket so he isn't going
to be buying anything for years ;)
But i'm going to try to keep inmind to clean the gears every so often no
matter which one I buy...lol
I've also been looking at the Ridgid TS3650 Table Saw. I have many
reviews, all seem to say it is a good saw for the price. It also weighs
about 300 lbs, and take 8 hrs or something to put together. But it
comes with a mobile base that seems to be handy, esp. for me because my
shop is small and all tools need to be put it a specific location to cut
long stock. (in line with the hallway going into the back of the basement.)
I am seriously thinking of buying this saw.
I have the Ridged 13 inch planer that I haven't had problems with, I
have the their 12 sliding miter box, which I think was a much better buy
than the Dewalt 12 inch slider. I also have their palm sander and 6
inch orbital sander. Haven't had a problem with any of them.
For some serious reviews try:
Well I'm probably going to get the ridged...but first I'm going to make
everyone in the news group cring and look at the one for sale in sams
All I'm waiting for now is for the holadays to get over so I have money to
buy the darn saw....lol (two little kids I love buying stuff for eats up
money this time of year,also thanksgiving a 3 year olds b-day then
I'm looking at first putting my workshop in the garage and moving it to the
barn after I rewire it. The barn has three lights fifteen feet over head and
three power outlets in the worst possible places....lol
thanks for your imput...
