Charlie H. – I was thinking of hunting around for a Delta T2 fence set up, but I’d appreciate any other fences to consider retrofitting. The C-man mechanism is interesting for sure, but I’m not optimistic it’ll “pass inspection” when I get to go over everything in greater detail.

JCamp – He’s 64 – strong and healthy enough but his back will act up every know and than from an old injury from the Ford plant. I agree about a mobile base. The saw actually doesn’t have any wings at present so a side leaf or something similar is a must.

bilyo – Are link belts actually inherently quieter? Or are they reputed to vibrate less because they don’t get deformed after a long time with the stress of suspending the motor? I do think the belt will have to be replaced (It had held that motor in one position for 6+ years before getting it out of my grandfather’s basement).

ppg677 – agreed. I’m currently debating make vs. buy for the splitter.
