« Part 1: Part 1 $10,115 in 2 days (shocked face) Part 2 of Woodshop 2.0 - series no next part

Finally after a couple months on backorder the machines are starting to arrive. This week the Powermatic 15HH planer arrived and the SawStop 5hp ICS plus all the bits and mobile bases.

That’s a BuildPro 5/8 inch thick steel table suspended from the shop crane, that thing weighs 280lbs arrgh! I bought a Grizzly mobile base for it which also arrived today.

I got a heap of assembly and setup work to do this weekend!

It looks like you have some busy days ahead. It’s like Christmas in May, putting the gifts together for the kids.

Indeed. I cut and painted some steel tubing to extend a Grizzly mobile base last night. Our local Metals Supermarket has come in real handy lately. Today I’ll uncrate and inspect the SawStop. Then somewhere buried in another pile of boxes that arrived are the machine setup tools and indicators.

Have your say...
