Greg,

You're a mean one! Waving that in front of our NAINA noses! Where'd you get that?

Is that the one that was for sale on ebay? When I was in France last week, I saw the modules for the router, jig saw, TS55 and belt sander. All deeply cool. I love the sliding table.

But don't get too excited. Wait till you see what Fred has!!!

Yes, it was the one that had been on Ebay. Turns out the owner was a member over on TOF and I recognized his name. I contacted him and we agreed to a price. Then I convinced my new bride that it would make a great Christmas present. We were married on the third of January and just took a few days off to celebrate in Traverse City, where we picked it up. I would post a picture of my new bride but then you would totally forget about the saw.

Meeting the previous owner deserves a thread of its own. His name is Chad Womack and has been a high end furniture designer for over 30 years. We had a chance to see some of his portfolio and it was amazing. He is an expert in Russian furniture and has studied design and furniture history the way some folks study classical music. More on him later.

And more on the saw later as well. I will try to do a review of sorts if you guys are interested but I am very busy right now so bear with me.
