Ok, So it has taken me a few weeks to get the saw from my garage to the shop. But I with help from the wife got it into the basement yesterday and I completed assembly and set up this morning.

Set up was generally easy, even had some help from my daughter. Had to run out to get a blade this morning as I had not gotten one yet, and again this afternoon as my dust connector I had did not fit the duct port on the saw. Why is it that 4” is different on every tool? Quick fix though and it does generate a lot less dust with the collector running. Need to just remember to turn it on.

After a few test cuts I decided to run some scrap logs through it. I am going to like this saw….

Now if I can get my stabilization setup put together I think I will be good with most turning wood for a while.
