The new Sawstop PCS is fully assembled!
Everything I read on the internet about Sawstop’s great packaging was right-on; I was not disappointed! I unpacked the saw box and started reading the assembly instructions. On went the crank wheels, motor cover, extension wings, switch and tool holder. I of course cleaned the cast iron and then applied some T-9 Boeshield and wax.
Next came the rails and fence. After the rails were on (which was very easy), the instructions said to put on the mobile base. That was pretty straightforward (great instructions), although a little tricky to reach underneath the saw.
Finally the extension table, front tube and fence!
All in all, it went very smoothly. Getting everything flat (extension wings and extension table) took some fiddling, but nothing out of the ordinary. All the parts were clearly labeled and instructions were very detailed. The pictures in the instructions booklet were awesome, clearly labeling the part numbers and details.
It took about 4 hours to fully assemble. Next step is to tune the saw!
