If it was a perfect world I would stuff my table saw in the tongue box and hit the dusty trail.

Oh man, I just realized that'd be possible for me. I have a tiny Atlas table saw from the 50's. Laugh all you want about the size but when I was a kid my uncle built a 32' wood planked boat with it. It was his only power saw. After he died I brought it home and from time to time put it to good use. Hmm, it would fit in my tongue box. Maybe I should take it with me to Baja. If I get tired of all that sun and warm water I could whip out a mod or two.

Seriously, I've had the good fortune to grow up surrounded by talented people who could do beautiful skilled work. They appreciated good quality tools as I do but could produce great results without them. Don't know how they ever got along without Lee Valley.

My cabinet saw would take a trailer of it's own to haul around, but I certainly could put my portable DeWalt one on board.

Yow Ron your uncle's table saw is sturdier and smaller than my dad's 1953 Craftsman and that was a solid little performer. Don't tell me that motor is a 3 HP.

Nope, that's only a 1/4 hp. Don't rip 2" gumwood on it.

Yup, they don't make them like they used to. My home table saw is a 50's 8 inch Rockwell Beaver. I started using it when I was a kid. Different cultures have different rites of passage. Mine was when my Dad trusted me enough that I didn't have to ask him if I could use it.

When he died I had a choice, keep it and my larger saw or get rid of the larger saw. I keep the old Beaver. It's done a ton of work for me and on the rare, really rare occasion when I need a larger saw I go to our volunteer shop, home of the Lee Valley groupies, and use the large granite topped saw.

And a cast iron fence to boot.
