IWF bound and need some advice

I am on my way to IWF, You know the Disneyland for woodworkers, and I need some help. I have two objectives this year. One to have a better finish and two replace my radial arm saw.

I think I know what I going to do with the spray gun. I am replacing my airless with an air-assisted airless. Any comments on that would be helpful, but I am really concerned on my cross cuts.

I don't use the radial arm saw much anymore. It is an old craftsman. Will not stay square and wobbles too much. I'll use it mainly for ruugh cuts. I mainly cut solid lumber on it there. I do most of my sheet stock work on the table saw.

I have a Dewalt miter saw, but it is not a sliding style and you can't anything wider that about 6". I think I'd like to get a sliding miter saw and build a really nice table and fence system with it.

I am going to try to ready more on the "tool review" section at LJ, but any comments would help. Let me know if I'm on track or if I need a totally new route. Even comment on the spray rigs.

Thanks in advance.

Hopefully the new unisaw will be a big hit and the market gets flooded with a bunch of good ole unisaws.
Can't help you out with the sliding miter. I have a chop saw or a circular saw that I use for cutting long boards. Have fun at the show, Chris.

I'm jealous… I'd love to go. I'd sleep in a tent just to go… heck, scrap the tent… grass is good enough. I'm too far north to convince my wife that it's a "productive" three day trip… lol.

I asked for some input for some equipment that I was needing on the last blog. I got more people wishing they were going to the IWF then helping with some feed back. That was okay. I got a lot of info and did a lot of walking at the show.

But to rub it in a litte I thought I'd share this picture.
