    Surprise, Surprise, My Table Saw Still Works!

    Today, I used my TS to rip some furring strips for sheet rock around a fiberglass shower. That is after I found TS under a year's worth of piling on. Having had pneumonia, kidney stone, and pinched nerve in neck last summer, I didn't get to spend any time in shop over summer, or fall. Then in October, spent eleven days in hospital with pneumonia in right lung. Had to have surgery on right lung cavity to drain fluid, so rest of fall and winter, shop work was a no-no. Finally today actually got to do some shop work. It sure felt good to be back in shop!

    It's H*** to get old, isn't it, but I don't like the alternative either.

    Glad to hear that you found your shop and saw again. Now let the saw dust fly.

    Bruce I did not know you were so sick. Glad to hear you are on the mend. Just take it slow.

    Would that be the tablesaw that sits on top of another tablesaw? Or one of the others!
    And I thought I had a rough year...Take care of yourself, Bruce.
    Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind, don't matter.

    I hate it when I have more rust on me than on the machinery. Glad you're able to play in the saw dust again Bruce, take it slow and enjoy!

    Re: Surprise, Surprise, My Table Saw Still Works!

    Please don't tell me to take it slow, as I've been doing that for almost a year now. Got a lot of catching up to do. Joe, that's a RAS resting on top of my Unisaw. Been there for the last twelve years.
