Part 1: Order in the works

03-20-2012 03:12 PM by Cato | 3 comments »

Long story short I have ordered a new table saw. Jet/Powermatic sale was on last week, and I took advantage and ordered a Jet Xacta Deluxe w/30” fence. I can’t say that I have to have it to cut thicker wood or mine is badly broken or anything cool like that. I basically just wanted it and so I excercised my right as a consumer and bought it.

Part 4: Assembling the new Jet tablesaw

My saw arrived on Friday afternoon around lunchtime and the driver pulled the pallet jack up into the driveway and into the garage for me. Everything was nice and neatly shrinkwrapped.

So Saturday I ran the electrical stuff and unpacked the saw, and went as far as I could until my stepson arrived to give me a hand walking the saw off the pallet and onto the mobile base.Fast fo...
