Agree with what others have said while I only have space on two sides. Although, I do roll it away from the wall once or twice a year when I have to pass long work through.

Keep in mind it is a great work table surface when you need flat (really flat) surfaces. Mine is kind of an out feed for my table saw.
Thanks for the response. BTW...love Brenham...wished we lived up there but my work is in Houston. Regarding a work surface--the bane of my woodworking, DIY, etc. existence is that if there is a horizontal plane that has an empty space, stuff will find that empty space almost immediately.

I will be moving my shop in the next three months or so and changing to my "new to me" machine, which means I will be in a position to sell my old one.
Come by and take her for a spin. It has been a fantastic machine and just keeps on cranking out the work.

I am located near Bastrop, about two hours from Houston off 1-10.
Hi Doug. Thanks for the invite. I'll have to talk to my wife and son and see when they are ready for a road trip...we might be able to find a weekend (if a Saturday works for you) sometime before Thanksgiving.

Welcome to the forums.
I was watching two of my friends, the Navy friend was raging on a Coast Guard friend, puddle pirates as he said. As it turned out the Coast Guard friend had gotten into way more serious stuff than my Navy buddy.
I can't remember what all they said because it was 20 yrs ago but I remember they had great insults for each other. :)

I can say after having my first cnc router about 6 months, I sold the sliding table saw. I went back to a normal cabinet saw for the odd times I needed to hand cut. I have retired from the cabinet making world, but still repair machines some. I am not far from you, so feel free to hollar if you need any help getting going.

HaHa! When I was younger, I was in some pretty hairy rescue situations at Oregon and Northern California search and rescue stations. Being young, when the SAR alarm went off because of a mayday in a winter storm, it was exciting to head out into the crazy, rough ocean to hopefully be able to save someone. Trying to get dewatering pumps to sinking vessels, helping pull people out of the water onto your boat in heavy seas, putting out boat fires, etc. was the type of stuff made for adrenalin junkies. I look back on those times and think about how crazy that all was and that you couldn't get me to go do that today for anything...not even for a fully decked-out Cobra Elite! ;)
