Recent Shop Improvements

Several members made it into the shop this weekend to get the new Sawstop up and running. There are still a few modifications to make it blend in with surrounding tools but it’s a vast improvement over the other table saws we’ve had. Thanks to all those that helped make this happen. This includes those who helped out financially and physically by unpackaging it and getting it calibrated and ready for some cuts.

And not to be out done, but the guys also got this miter saw station installed thanks to a kind donation from one of our new members. It too is a welcome addition to the shop.
