Wow.   Maybe POTUS will buy it when he's in Y-town tonight.

 

Several years ago, PopWood had a sliding table saw in their shop for evaluation.  I kept waiting for the review because the editor I talked with really liked it.   Never saw it published, so I don't know what happened with it.

Wonder why no one has built a 10"- 12" table saw with a sliding table. 

Shopsmith had one where the bade was pulled through the cut. Never caught on, though.

Yeah, I remember that.   Don't know that I ever saw one.

Warren, OH, just a few miles NW of Youngstown.

 

Trivia: I was born in Warren and lived due east of Warren and due north of Y-town until college.  It was really depressing to go back and visit family in the '70s and '80s, the industry was all dying, plants and mills shuttered, high unemployment.  Heard, "Are you still working?" more than once.  A few new companies tried to start up and soon failed.  I've heard there streets in the town so full of vacant houses that the city just wants to close them to save maintenance costs.
