Default JMPV Bridge City tools - my additions

blade guard - when not in use - simply binder covers available at staples - 10 pack less than $6
Kreg wheels - able to raise height to my comfort level ( yes - legs are at the max) and makes stand easy to roll around AND absolutely no movement when only front wheels are locked (can lock all four but have no need on rubber mat)
Rockler hold downs - on sale for less than $7 and free shipping with $25 order

You are way ahead of me Colyn, it looks like you are making sawdust and my JMP is still at the factory.

Good deal, Colyn - I must have seen you there.

The JMSW isn't really much smaller than the JMP - it just has one less moving table. Still an amazing saw. Same blades, same sliding table, etc.

Worse part is, Colyn, that John E said, "well, your JMP is sold so here's a handsaw for you to do the demo with"

Glad you got it all set up and in operation. Did you get the same type of bolts that were used for the clamps (square headed ones)? I got a bag of those from Fastenal up the street... some short some long. Work great with those hold downs except my hold downs are all taken so I'l take your advice and get a 4 pack.

And welcome to the forum!

The bolts that come with the hold downs are a soft metal- i ran the sides against my disk sander - for a few seconds- that is all that is needed and they fit flawlessly
