Well, I finally got it-my brand new K5. Was able to swing it because I got an unexpected (actually forgotten) rebate from Azek Decking for the decking material I purchased back in Sept. I let my buddy who helped me apply for the rebate with the stipulation that I would get $120.00 of it. Totally forgot about it till he came into my office and laid down the 20's on my desk. Belated Christmas gift I guess. Well since I didn't have it two days ago but now I did it made my decision easy-add my own 40.00 or so(damn IL taxes)and I become the brand new owner of the K5! Yippee. Since my wife gifted me with the HD for my birthday in Nov and I had picked up by accident( by accident I mean your bidding on a box of tools cause you want the Dremel tool and find out that there is a Kreg jig in the bottom buried) a mini and a K2000 at various auctions last summer I got a pretty good set going.
My question is, do you guys that have it mounted to a board have any pics of what your setup looks like? If you do, I would appreciate seeing those pics. Wanna get going in earnest soon. Or do you just use it as is?
Jan , if you go to project, top of page and go to page 8 , there is a post by Jeff Metcalf on how to mount the K5 on a portable board , hope this helps , JIM !!
James, thanks, after I posted that I went to projects and saw that on and a few others. Should have looked there first.
