Last night I drilled the holes in the saw table and the rear rail and mounted it. The result was the same as with the front rails, it fit perfectly, and I don’t think that I could be any happier. The fence is aligned perfectly and it slides across the rails like a hot knife cutting through butter.
I am actually on vacation for the remainder of the year, so I’ll be finishing up this saw. I have 2 more things to do to it….
1. Mount the motor and install a new switch
2. Make a router extension wing.
I have always hated the Crapsman ‘Professional’ router table that I have. It has the aluminum top that we all hate, and it has always felt flimsy.
This saw has the standard cast iron extension wings, which are not solid. If I leave the right side wing off, that will give me approximately 24” from the edge of the table, to the end of the fence rail. So i’m looking at a 24” X 27” router table extension.
I took some pictures, but I can’t get them uploaded because my step-daughter took my usb cable to her dad’s house. Hopefully I’ll get it back tomorrow and I can upload them…
