Corner diffusion behind the screen wall no. But the wall behind the screen has compressed fiberglass floor to ceiling. And the bottom of the soffit is covered with compressed fiberglass. So yes some diffusion.

When I build the theater and made all the fabric frames I had an old Craftsman table saw. Well during building all thoughts frames The craftsman table saw died. I had it get a replacement fast. And the only thing I could find was a contractor Ridgid table saw at the local orange big box store. The Ridgid table saw has served me well but it does not have a knife system, the guard is awkward (so it never get used) and the dust collection is not that good. SO I sold the Ridgid and bought the Sawstop.

The Sawstop is about the same price as all the other saws (Delta, Powermatic, Jet etc... ) but it includes the finger detection feature to save your finger if you stick it into the spinning blade. I waqs also able to step up to a 3hp motor instead of the 1.5 the Ridgit had.

So far I'am very happy.

^ I'm sure you'll love it. I just bought a 1.75. Big splurge but I figured it's better to get a saw with the blade brake if I'm going to have it forever. Getting it down the basement stairs was, uh, interesting. I was impressed by how good their assembly manual was. Foolproof. Good customer service too.

That is a great machine and one you should be able to give to your kids.

The only problem is that now you do not have any excuses if something gets messed up!

Snap another pic with it setup if you don't mind.

I used to have the Rigid Table saw... Not the portable one and I loved it! I wish I hadn't sold it now. I see you got the industrial one... Must cost a pretty penny.

Assembly was documented very nicely. Two part were very hard to a single person assembly. First was getting the base unit off its back into a upright position. the second was attaching the cast iron extension wings. '

The saw is vibration free and steady as a rock.

Love it

You can see my old Rigid in the back ground. I was luck it had the all cast iron top and the Herculean mobile wheels on it .

I did not spend the huge bucks on the industrial saw that was an extra $1,000. I did get the Professional 36", 220v, 3hp, with the T-glide fence and the industrial hydraulic mobile base. The dealer gave me the wrong boxes. In the photo you will see a mix match of parts. The saw base unit is the correct box. The long slim box it the correct 36" fence rails and the industrial base iscorrect. The last box with the "Premium" fence is the INCORRECT box. I was missing the T-glide fence and the 36" extension table.

The T-Glide fence is a much heaver fence then the Premium fence. Problem was the dealer is a 3 hour round trip away. After a quick call on Monday they had a some one from the store drive out the correct parts. Great Customer Service.

What you got is still an excellent setup and I am sure you will be very happy with it. I know even though I would love to have one I know that I will not put it to use like I would have years ago, plus my garage is now a HT so there is no place to store one.

Here you go, all put together and fully operational. It is amazing how finely tuned this saw is out of the box. I spent hours adjusting the Rigid when I got it.

Looks like an awesome table to me... You will enjoy using that!

That is some serious tool porn right there. Very jealous! Is it movable? Looks VERY heavy.

Yes it has the industrial mobile base on it. All four wheel are full 360 degrees swivel. So it can completely spin a 360 in it's own foot print. Unlike the other tools with three wheels. There is a hydraulic cylinder, so three pulps and it is ready to move.

Every thing in my shop is mobile as it is in a three car garage. One stall for tools and two stalls for cars, Cars are only allowed when all the tools are pushed over into the first stall.

Wow, great setup. I have seen that setup a million times in Rockler, but it does not compare to in the shop/garage. Very nice. Thank you for sharing.

Yep, it makes a BIG difference when it is in your own shop/garage :-)
