    I can't apologize for not understanding the message. ????? My opinion is only worth what you paid for it though.

I love my 6200 but I have no illusions regarding it being a great saw. That sir is a myth! In fact, I can't think of any Beaver tool that is a sought after MUST HAVE!

    Tom there are members here who won't buy a 100 dollar Beaver saw because it doesn't have a riving knife for gosh sakes, but they'll pay a 1000 dollars for some hunk of junk that is much less saw than my 6200. Objective? or Subjective?

    BTW you can't blame your tools if you know how to use hand tools either.
    for sure it could, but I didn't make the statement it referred too.


    as for blaming tools.
    I have owned, upgraded & used atleast 6 different table saws in the last 5yrs, always in search of the ONE that will make me a better craftsman. None of those, or any other tools I own have made me a better craftsman... but collecting them all sure has made me a "poorer" one.

    Some of the finest pieces of furniture I've seen, here/online, were created by forum member Don Kondra using what I believe was a Beaver 6201.



    That's not to say the ops saw is as formidable as a unisaw/cabinet saw, just that saying
    "none of the old Beaver saws in that configuration are great saws"
    is subjective, opposed to objective.




    A poor craftsman blames his tools.

I have a 6200 and it does everything I ask but I also have a Unisaw and the difference is like night and day. I would never ask the 6200 to do what the Unisaw will do.

    Thanks Bob.
    Iím rehabbing a 6201 now so Iíll probably pass on the 6200 unless itís heavier/better than my 6201.
