A Rikon 18”, at a great price in the current Woodcraft sale :D

ETA I’d probably be more comfortable building a wye (if it is what I think it is; any clarification?) than cutting holes in the sheetrock. I did build a 220v extension cord for my table saw, as the cord wasn’t long enough to reach the ceiling, and rewired my 14” bandsaw for 220 (because it was the only way to get it to ANY plug without draping an extension cord halfway across the shop) so I have a little experience wiring plugs, but no experience cutting sheetrock or installing boxes. Also the ceiling is less accessible now than it was a year ago, because the dust collection ducting is running near to that area and there’s a big table saw in the way of where I’d need to place the ladder.
