Okay, Rockler has all three (PCS, Contractor and Jobsite Pro) in stock. 
 

For someone that works maybe a weekend a month on projects, am I getting enough benefit from the PCS over the others to give up all the extra space in the garage?

So Tice removed a deck at his job site, which is Armistead Maupin's former home. In his genius he recognized it to be Brazilian Ipe that was only screwed down from one side. The new owner eventually a

Just put up some shelves and cabinets in the shop space preparing for making things again!

The Cherry is lighter than the speakers, but will darken quickly next to the window. I have a vented front plate coming for the top space. The cooling fan sits in that space, and is really quiet.

It actually takes less. I had the Contractor Saw with the 36” T-Glide ready to go but at 400+ lbs I am not sure I would ever get it out of the back of the Audi. 
 

Think I am going cheap and getting the crappy Jobsite Pro.

The contractor saw should still be fine for most purposes. And if it isn't, resale will be easy. That said, several vendors will ship the larger ones on a lift gate for free.

Make sure you get the industrial base, Jeff.

I am sure it is going to suck, but I could not come up with 60” of space in the single car space with all the crap I already have.

I bet it will be better than you think. Just make sure you spend 95.95% of your timing setting it up 😉

I think it might fit here, and there is no fucking way I would have been able to drag the contractor saw at 430 lbs out of the back of the fucking Audi.

Opened up the box enough to see it all feels super cheap and cheesy. Going to take it back and rethink this.

Cut to length and straight lined to parallel 200bf of walnut. I think I need to find a better supplier and get FAS select. Less work for me and I’ll just carry over the added expense to the customer.

Decided to learn some from the theatrical activity known as "pipe and drape" and frame out supports for the mattresses with PVC.

Did the math and realized the queen was pretty close to the hypotenuse of the two twins (yeah, I know that's a double-entendre waiting to happen, go ahead), but after looking at them, decided the triangle would be too claustrophobic, so going to make a trapezoid.  It's just a matter of what material to use for the fourth wall/door (yes, you too, can make a movie pun).  Probably woolen drapes or something.

Decided to keep the crappy table saw short term as the addition to the house is going to have to be done with the extra 3 car garage to fit the big saw I want. 

Got the Incra mitre gauge thing which I am not terribly impressed with as two of the three mitre rail tightening screws will not turn at all so the thing cannot be tightened in the mitre slots. 

The Sawstop seems to be decent outside of the top, it scratches every time something touches it. Hopefully the construction happens quickly so I can trash this thing. 

Going to try to make a usable sled to do some cuts tomorrow at some point.

Looks good, I’m guessing it will work better than you expect, except when you have to cut thicker dense hardwood. Then like Doug mentioned, go to a thin kerf blade.

What if you need to cut some Hot Dogs though?

Went through the rudimentary setup for the Jobsite Pro. Got most things straight except the fence is not 90 degrees to the table and that is not something they seem to allow you to adjust.

Incra doesn’t have an attachment for either and the ping-pong table wouldn’t work. Perhaps the Goldfinger is the logical choice, assuming no dangerous outgassing.

The cut doesn't look all that clean  ..
