I have been threatening to buy a new table saw for a few months now and as all the planets seem to be aligned I am finally going to take the plunge…before i end up spending the money on Christmas! I am going to get a Grizzly G0690. I came to this decision thanks to allot of great input from the people on this site in particular Don K. He owns this saw along with a few other Grizzly pieces and doesn’t hesitate to sing the praises of this saw. After the Shop Fox rolling base he purchased basically collapsed, he designed and built this stand for his saw. He was kind enough to share the details with me, and you can see it in the pictures of his shop. Of course being the Sketch-A-Holic I am I had to do a model of the stand complete with renders and exploded views. Click the link below each image to see it full size..
Here is the stand, raw SU output.
The exploded view…
Here is the dimensioned view…
And a rendered image
I like his design allot, the way the saw sits in a pocket to keep it from being too high off the floor. Don says that with the casters unlocked, the saw moves with a one handed shove…try that with a typical rolling base. I am going to put this together this weekend so as soon as my saw gets here I can put it in the stand before the cast iron goes on!
