Stage 2 - Ripping
I only got halfway through the pile when my BRAND NEW #kobalttablesaw switch shit the bed. I’ve used it maybe two hours total before today.
Two tripped fuses and two fixes to the switch itself (it can’t handle the heat and warps out of shape causing the tripping of the breaker- two copper toggles, imagine a set of side by side copper seesaws inside the switch) made me give up for the day.
I may do what my father did decades ago and wire my own switch to the table saw. #kobaltsucks
I actually have more wood already to go inside the garage, this was a truck load of seconds I got from a local mill, white pine for $40, it will glow when I’m done with it. Well worth the money.
It’s Saturday evening. Time for dinner and a cocktail. Or four....... Enjoy your weekend
