Default Just purchased a Stinger 1

Just to say I just paid for a new Stinger 1 with the T-slots in and preped for recoil. Now the wait begins.
I have all the lumber I need to build the table and all the periferials, so I'll start getting that all prepared. I've even enlisted my son-in-law and some of his friends to be ready to help move it when it gets here, bribed them with steak and beer after we move it.

Thumbs up Fwiw

Steve, you made a good choice. I built my table out of wood as well basically using Mr. Martin's design except I made it eight feet long. I used 3/4 plywood to cover the 4 x 8 table top which I thought was a good idea at the time. The first time I had to do maintenance I realized that I should have left the bottom under the machine open so I could clean and lube the track and check the motor and belt. Very difficult to do when the clearance under the Stinger is only four inches with the cable track on one side and the recoil on the other. One day I will hoist the machine up and cut out a center section. It has to be done from the top since I have 2 x 6 braces. I attached some pics. There is a ton of good info on here from others as well on table ideas and things they would do differently. Make your self a mirror image of the hard drive is important as well. There is a lot to learn on this forum. I learn something almost every time I log in.

Congratulations, Steve! You have made an excellent choice. I have had my Stinger SR24 for a little over 6 months now and like Bruce, I smile every time I turn it on. You will love the wonderful folks on this forum. Great people...great machine. Fun times are coming your way! Welcome....

As Tom Petty sang....the waiting is the hardest part!
