If you preinstall the cans, make sure you take a picture before they drywall.  Once in a while they cover one up and forget it was there.  In my house I had two boxes that the drywallers covered and m...

I contacted Sawstop CS as suggested.  The answer was that I should push the saw as far forward as it will go into the base.  Pivot the tabs onto the saw body and run the self-tapping screws into the s...

Post: RE: Question for Sawtop PCS owners with ICS base

The box for the base specifically says it’s an ICS base for the PCS saw so I think it came from the factory with the conversion kit installed.

General practice is the most important surfaces last so there is no overspray on them.

Very nice, but I have to ask what happens when the 9V battery dies with the box closed.  Is there an "emergency" method of opening?

I have used Behlen's Wool Lube and 0000 steel wool after 400g sanding so it should definitely take out your 600g marks.

I wasn't planning on any cross bracing but that certainly would eliminate the leaning concern.  Youtube videos show a very mixed bag (pun intended) of results with the expanding foam.

Here is the form and the finished product I made to create the round to square PVC adapter.   Ignore all that duct tape residue on the elbow.  That's embarrassing.  I should clean that off.

John, you seem extremely knowledgeable on finishing (along with many other woodworking related topics).  Curious what you think of Behlen's Wool Lube for something like this?
