    Kinda new to the BOC, so much info on here, could spend days learning tons. Just found the woodworking part, here's some pics of an e-center I did last fall for a good friend. It's 11' 6" wide and near 7' tall. Had to build it in 3 sections just so we could move it. Sure glad I didn't miss the measurements because it slid against the baseboards on both side when we put it in.

    Nice job Dale. Don't you just love it when you build something that big and it fits like a glove. That takes some planning and skill. By the way is your table saw a Unisaw?

    Table saw is a Delta contractor saw that's been tricked up a bit. It's got a 52" Beesey fence and an 8' outfeed table with a 5 x 5 torsion table on the corner for glue up work. (When ever I can get enough fishing stuff off of it to use)

    Thanks Lonnie, how do you like your Beesey? I have the unisaw fence and have longed to have the Beesey. Sounds like you have a great setup for your shop.

    Fish, the Beesey is what I consider to be the Cadillac of fences. Bump it, bang it, it comes right back to dead on true. Since I got the saw setup, I have not used the jointer, the rips are so true, I get a no line glue up on almost any thing I run thru it.

    Another fine job.

    Jim as Lonnie says, them bessimier fences are the best. Ive been running one on a PM66 for 14 yrs now and I think in that time it was re adjusted maybe 3 times. And it gets used almost every day. Good stuff!

    Lonnie and Dave, you both need to keep me out of your shop, I would have your tablesaws rusty from droolin all over them.LOL That PM66 with the beesey can't be beat any way you go.

    I don't use a jointer either Lonnie, I just never have needed one. I did have a 8 inch Rockwell and swapped it for a shaper. That big ole jointer was just too big for my little shop.
