Now you're reminding me of my old job. I did hundreds of installations
and there are some you can bundle an some you can't. That's one reason
pro cable costs so much and is so thick, due to the 100+% shielding an
Some of the mic cable I used to use, I could lay parallel to AC cords
with zero 60 cycle hum, as long as all the grounding was correct. But
that's some expensive stuff and knowledgeable installation. Most home
instals are better with the rats nest. :-)
"Playing is not something I do at night, it's my function in life"
Yep, thousands and thousands in equipment with balanced inputs and outputs,
balanced TRS patch cords, and high dollar shielded cables; and the only
thing that will stop a guitar player's amp from humming in Bb on a tune in
A is a .49 cent ground lift adapter. ;)

SawStop is doing great. I still question the use of a glossy black
right extension table as far as appearances go however it is slick with
little friction. I guess that would be a trade off for those concerned
about appearances vs. function, I'm not.
I always enjoyed my old Jet cabinet saw but start up with this thing,
compared to the Jet, is drastically improved. It does not start up
quite as quickly as the Jet but boy is it smooooooth. The Jet tended to
explode to instant full speed. The SawStop takes about a quarter second
to come up to speed. I suspect that it has something to do with two
belts and 3 pulleys. It also seems to coast down to a stop much more
quickly. Any way the smoothness of the saw gives you a much better
feeling of security and a sense of higher quality.
I have not changed any of my habits, I still respect the spinning blade,
there still are things that can happen that can harm you but the
smoothness of the spinning blade keeps the small loose cut offs from
dancing around near the blade.
Changing the blade brake when changing from a standard sized blade to
the 8" dado set now takes me less time, installing the brake is a touchy
feeley kind of action as it is difficult to see where the round pegs are
suppose to align with the brake, this routine takes 3~4 seconds now.
I still have a difficult time remembering to swing the dust chute door
closed after changing blades.. it is an internal door so either the
right side exterior door has to be opened or the insert removed to verify.
The SawStop brand hydraulic mobile base rolls so freely that if you
don't lower the saw after moving it, it will likely roll out into the
drive way if you are not careful, and that base is supporting close to
I have yet to use the guard but the splitter is great.
You'd be surprised how easy it would be to get back up something that
small. I thought I'd have all sorts of problems getting my Unisaur
off the shipping pallet. No problems at all. I had no problems
moving it from my other house into this one, alone. A couple of 2x10
ramps, a couple of sheets of plywood, and a UHaul trailer did the job
with no problems. The 2x10s are about the same height as your garage
lip and that was the easy part. Levers and inclined planes are
wonderful things. Don't leave Cheops without them. ;-)

Swingman and I tackled that lip 3 years ago with all of my equipment. I
did not say that it would be impossible, it would be q hell of a lot
more trouble to get it back up there than if I simply did not let it
happen in the first place.

Bottom line is, he could have done just as excellent a job using the Jet and saved all that Sawstop money for beer and boudin, for when watching that TV.... or for when untangling electrical cords.
Thank you Mike.
I used lots of scraps. LOL
The top and ends/sides are 3/4" walnut plywood. The top is trimmed with
solid walnut and the doors are solid walnut. All black painted parts
are oak, basically the front and back face frames, end trim pieces, and
top perimeter border. The top perimeter border keeps things from
rolling off the sides or back and hides the cables hanging down behind
the walnut wall panels. I used a black milk paint with a gel varnish as
a top coat. The single floating shelf, its supports, and the bottom of
the cabinet are 3/4" paint grade maple plywood. The grill frames are
1/2" Baltic birch plywood as are the 6 internal drawers.
