    I'll betcha they're workpiece holders for finishing. You set the piece on top and then have access to the underside edges and stuff. I have these little plastic pointy pyramids I pull out to finish things on all sides.

    Well that sounds kinda cool, especially since a lot of my time is spent finishing and refinishing stuff.

    Not to poke into your business but do you cut keys as income?,how many keys do you have to make for something like that to pay for itself?

    Paint some googly eyes on it and it'd look like a planarian.

    Planarian. Huh.

    I would say I have a decent vocabulary, I read a lot, etc. But I've learned two completely new words today, both on this forum. Planarian is one. The other... scuderia. As in "my scuderia of guitars".

    Honestly, I can't imagine using either, but that's OK. Words are good.

    I like mine. Had it a couple years now. Fed it lots of doug fir (sappy, hard on blades), and hard maple when I was building my bench. It comes with two sets of blades, and each is double-sided. So four sets. I've only flipped the original blades, and have the other set still untouched. Lots of cherry and white oak, too. And the planed surface is still smooth enough to go straight to finishing.

    It's worth taking the time to set the tables right. Trial and error, long straightedge. I hardly ever have ANY snipe.

    Enjoy yours! And buy a dust bag, unless you have proper DC. It'll fill your whole shop with chips in a heartbeat :lol:

    I use this 3 micron bag. Shop vac is useless.

    I love mine, as someone said in another thread, get some sort of heavy duty collection going on that. It shoots wood chips and dust everywhere. The dust collection also helps keep the insides of the machine clean where the rollers can be damaged by debris if not connected to a dust collector or shop vac (I use a cyclone before my Rigid shop vac, works great for this.

    I think I have the same one. I bought it last August and it is still in the box (we got a Parkinson's diagnosis for my mother-in-law the same week and had to move her, sell her house, etc.) Hoping to fire it up soon!

    You'll enjoy the instructions.

    Translated from Chinese to Arabic with a stop in Sanskrit before arriving on the desk of the person who wrote US tax code.

    I just sold the slightly smaller brother to this saw. The 7490x, 28" rip capacity vs 32. The 'x' means it comes with a scissor stand, which I like a lot better. I don't want those wheels in the way, when my saw just stays in the shop.

    Anyway, these saws are really good. I needed a 3 hp cabinet saw, which the DeWalt would never be, so it had to go, but jeez, I pushed it for three years, pretending it was the better saw, and it performed admirably.
