I finally did it...

>I have all of my tools on wheels with the intent being to roll thing "out of the way" when they aren't being used. Today, after 10 years of being front and center in my shop, I finally rolled my tablesaw to the back of the garage.

The turning point was that I had been roughing out a large ambrosia maple hollowform and the shavings were 4" thick on top, and 2' behind the saw. I moved it to sweep out 4 bins worth of curlies, and looked at the space once it was out of the way. Man, those things take up a ton of space!

So, now if I want to use the saw, I need to roll it forward 15' versus rolling it 3' away from it's old spot. Funny thing is, it's been that way for so long, but I've already gotten used to it being "gone."

I feel better having gotten that off my chest.
