A couple years ago I bought a bunch of tools from a guy who quit
woodworking. Floor drill press, 6" jointer, 12.5" planer, dust collector,
dado blade, two routers, Bessey K-Bodies & 14" bandsaw with riser. All were
in great shape. I hadn't heard from him since. Last week I got a email
from him saying another baby is on the way and he wanted to get rid of his
Jet 10" contractor saw. If I wanted to stop by and pick it up I could have
it for free.
Naturally I made the 100 mile round trip ASAP, before he changed his mind.
;-) There is some minor rust on the top after 2+ years of storage but
nothing a little elbow grease won't get rid of fast.
Space is limited in my single-car garage shop. I think I'll take the right
wing off my Grizz contractor saw and bolt the Jet TS in its place. The same
fence will then work with both saws. On some projects it will be great to
be able to leave the dado installed on one of them!
Of course I can't just bolt the Jet to the Grizz, I'll need to build a
cabinet that will hold both. I appreciate any ideas how I can have a single
dust port on the cabinet and switch collecting dust between the two saws.
My DC doesn't have the power to draw from both at the same time, and until I
upgrade the electricity I can't get one that will. I have several ideas but
sawdust could create jamming problems when switching the airflow.
