I finished this week’s schoolwork yesterday, so I managed to read the documentation for the new saw, adjust things that needed adjusting, and push some wood through the machine for the first time. Much easier to set up square and true. I still need to pay close attention to feed rate, because I didn’t want to spend 4 grand + an electrician to get a cabinet saw in… but it’s a very nice saw, and I’ve got it dialed in within about .005 on the fence, and an invisibly small fraction of a degree on the miter gauge. Happy, that.
