New toy for the shop..
« on: September 10, 2019, 07:28:09 AM »
So I'm hopefully getting closer to building a set of new cabinets for my kitchen, so I was looking through craigslist the other day (I scan it all the time looking for deals, AL too ) and ran across a Milwaukee panel saw for sale, seemed like a good price so Saturday morning took the hour twenty minute drive to have a look. Low and behold it DID fit in the back of my truck! ;D
Seems like its in very good condition, missing a couple little things ,which don't really effect usage, which I'll get eventually , but I'm very happy with the purchase! New ones are anywhere from $1400- $2000 and I got it for $550 . Always wanted a panel saw in my shop but could never justify the cost. I'm not getting any younger, have had both my shoulders done, and running full sheets of plywood, especially 3/4 stuff, through the table saw is (and always was ) a pain!! looking forward to having this machine to make my job easier!

(sorry not a clue how to do pics here anymore)

This is what I followed and was able to get pics up.  Is it a pain?  Yep.  But it is what it is.  I didn't look at the whole thing and let myself get overwhelmed - just followed step by step and magically a picture was up.  Furu explains things well.

Congrats on your new tool find.

Holy Camoli, looks like quite the project! The couple other forums I go to just have an insert image icon to click on. There is one here too but it doesn't do anything.
