Re: New retro-fit kits let you add riving knife to some General tablesaws

Very disappointed in the price of this upgrade; no more General anything for this once loyal customer. Company seems not concerned about it's customers enough to even notify registered customers of the availability of the upgrade. I suppose the cost of the stamp and envelope to mail a letter is too high for them. Too bad this industry doesn't have a standard similar to that of automobile recalls where the Dealer fixes such things before they get hit with a lawsuit.

Re: UPDATED: Giveaway and Poll: The Most Requested Woodworking Gifts of 2009

After many years of wood butchering using a Sears Radial Arm Saw for just about everything I finally got a dream tool: a General Cabinet Saw with a Delta Unifence. Then, the Saw Stop came out and the overall technology for safety devices took a giant leap forward, leaving my standard General anti-kickback and blade guard devices in the realm of the dinosaur. Still, it's a great saw that could be better if only there was a good, off the shelf retrofit available for an updated, more functional blade guard and riving knife.

Re: Poll: What hand tools are on your holiday wish list?

I've handled many different makers' planes and Lie-Nielsen planes generally fit my (XL) hands best. Lie-Nielsen planes are things of beauty with form, fit, function all very well executed.
