I'm afraid I would come up with a different set of morals than those you 
came up with.  I would conclude:

1) If your wife lets you buy a Unisaw, when a Contractor's saw (the real
one, not the Contractor II) is 95% as good for half the price, she doesn't
deserve to be cheated upon. 

2) If you can afford a Unisaw, you should send your daughter off on an 
educational trip to France, or to college, or anything besides making her 
work the swing shift in a sleazy motel.

3) If you are stupid enough to use your own name and address, and charge
the room to your credit card when you meet a bimbo in a sleazy motel, you
don't deserve a good table saw, let alone a good wife.
