Right on!  Teaching kids and grandkids stuff is what it's all about.   ;D  Did that some yesterday with my oldest grandson- he's in the trying pre-teen and pre-pubescent years: he'll try to get away with anything as long as it doesn't involve work.

Enjoy the saw and the lumber it makes: second best thing is using your own lumber to make stuff (hopefully stuff you need) and if you combine that with teaching grandkids, why it don't get any better.  :)

LT40, Long tractor with FEL and backhoe, lots of TF tools, beautiful wife of 50 years plus 4 kids, 5 grandsons AND TWO GRANDDAUGHTERS all healthy plus too many ideas and plans and not enough time and energy
