    For a moment I thought it was fro Travis Wuertz. Very similar principle for fastening.
    The dust collection container is super neat!

    I am guessing you have had some time to play with the new toy,
    ....I mean slave away working with the new grinder.
    How do you like it?

    Guess what? I haven't touched it yet - I've been on the belt just looking over at it once in awhile.

    Too often when I get a new toy, I mean tool, I hesitate to start using it.
    I get set in old routines and procrastinate using the new tool that will cause me to have to change my routine.
    But then when I finally start using the new one and get used to it I look back and say to myself "I should have been using this weeks ago".

    Nice!! Yes, a miter slot would be good, but just having the table/workrest is a drastic improvement IMO. So is your next one going to be the horizontal setup?

    Just did the same thing with a simple 12" disc sander I had picked up a while ago. It just sat there with plastic over it so it doesn't get dusty. Now that I started using it, life has become yet a little bit easier.

    Just finished wireing up the motor and VFD, and the confirmation came that the tool rest has shipped.

    The new tool rest setup means that it is actually more imperative that I buy one of those disc grinders soon. I want to try to split the output from my current VFD or just put plugs on the output and on each motor so I can save a few shekels.

    Well I finally got some time in on this new set up and yeah the table/work rest does help a lot for some things and so far I have no regrets.

    Pierre, did yours come in yet?
