    Post a *PIC* of your latest purchase...

    Bought a mini table saw, Ryobi RTS08, $129 (with blade). Need it to finish the front door area rebuild. Have some future projects it will be handy for. Can rip up to 12" wide, bevel up to 45 degrees, cut depth 2 1/4". Did not need any more features so why pay more.
