  1. yeah, I saw that video - Kev had a terrible experience, but mine is a few years older (not the current PM2000B version), and hasn't had any issues, other than the caster thing I described, which was fixed. It's a solid saw, so hoping someone here is interested before dropping into the hell which is Craigslist.
  2. Need to get this out of the shop too - life has slowed down enough that I have time to sell it finally. Dropping $50, so asking $500 now.
  3. Now that life is LESS in the way, I'm going to try to sell this again, and knock $200 off the price - so asking for $2300 for all of it shown above.
  4. In related news, Minnesota Steve's drill is so sparkly, you can see it from space. I too have a daughter under 10.
  5. I have 2 sets of the Bosch 1617 (each with fixed and plunge bases). I love how smoothly they start up, and the wood handles on the fixed bases feel really nice in my hand. I also have a PC 690 fixed base and while very functional, it's not the one I reach for most of the time, due to how jerky it starts up - there's noticeable torque, while the Bosch routers spin up without the torque.
  6. 10' would be better - it would give clearance to actually lift/carry long things more easily... I don't know how I got by in garages with 8-9' ceilings before I moved into the current shop. I'm NEVER going back to low ceilings.
  7. Enough slop in the holes? Not on mine there isn't. Something I'll address when/if I make a new table. In regards to the insert plate, I totally agree, but i was able to reference the cast iron top with a 6" combo square to validate flatness, with no insert in place. So that worked OK for me.
  8. A few thou doesn't seem like it would matter much, but mine's 1/8" to 1/4" low at the far right edge... I think that's enough to show on some joinery (mitered corners perhaps?), if you're muscling a long piece across the table. Plus, it was expensive, and I'd just like to know it's RIGHT. at some point down the road, i'll probably make a new table, and drill my own holes in the side, so I KNOW it's right. No, and I should have called that out on my "what's different"... 2 wrenches are needed for blade changes. On the plus side though, I feel like my big ol' paws can get into the thro
  9. Selling my 2hp Jet dust collector DC-1200VX-CK1 with 2 micron canister filter kit (710702K), along with wood river 220-volt dust collector remote control (very similar to this). Ready for pick up in Woodinville, as it doesn’t fit in my car. In very gently used condition – no major scratches or bends in the paint or the filter cover. Includes at least one Jet bag, and i'm pretty sure I have the instruction manual too. Note the images below are from Amazon, and I'll add more when I get home, and get the storage dust wiped off. Available for pickup/inspection in Woodinville, WA. Cas
  10. Selling my Powermatic PM2000, 3hp, single phase 230v, with 30” rails. Detailed list of accessories included is below (inserts, Incra miter sled, blade). Looking for $2500, cash or paypal. This saw is a little over 4 years old, I’m the only owner, and I’m selling it because my wife got me a SawStop. Functions great, some discoloration of cast iron and on the exposed metal on the rails, but nothing that impacts functionality. This is a heavy, full size cabinet saw, and it runs amazingly well – very smooth and powerful. Full disclosure: I had a factory service tech come out immedi
  11. You're in Minnesota, right? If you were about half as far, we could meet in the middle.
  12. Yeah, that's about where I'm at too... I'll get on that right after a sled, outfeed table, an under-wing cabinet, and maybe a couple of other cabinets around the shop.
  13. I had a WWII on my PM2000, and had a good experience, so I thought I'd try this one. You can find more about them here: "This blade is the same as the regular 10"x40T Woodworker II with the exception of having a slightly larger outside diameter which works well with SawStop's automatic brake design. More sharpenings are possible with these longer tipped teeth." That's a bit out of the way...
  14. I type all day for my day job - the flesh-sensing is just a cheap insurance policy. However, I loved the PM2000, and all else being equal, I would have kept it. The PCS is very well made, but the PM2000 has a slightly deeper table, and I loved the integrated caster system. I don't think you can go wrong with either of these saws.
