My decision to put a storage cabinet under the left hand table extension of my Model R4511 tablesaw necessitated the relocation of the Tilt Handwheel. When I designed the cabinet, I made provision for this modification by including a blank panel in the front of the cabinet, centered on the Tilt Handwheel shaft. In the photo below, this panel is located on the right side of the lower drawer, which is actually the middle drawer of the cabinet. The Tilt Handwheel shaft, 10mm in diamet...
In my view, adequate dust collection from a tool involves both the design of the tool and the design of the dust collection provisions. The Model R4511 cabinet is a well made, three sided, heavy gage sheet metal design. The fourth side is open and covered with the hinged plastic motor cover. Note the large corner gussets and the ledge that surrounds the bottom of the cabinet. A sloped plastic pan, 3/4” deep at the front and about 6” at the rear, is provided under the saw cabinet ...
A Side Extension Table was required to fill the space between the front and rear fence support rails, outboard of the saw table. Some folks install a solid panel, as I did on my General 350 cabinet saw in my old shop because I had a multi-drawer cabinet underneath. Many folks use this space for a router table, which is a great way to add another tool to the shop without eating up any floor space. We have seen many great examples of this type of router table here on the LJ forums — it se...
One of the useful additions to a table saw is a Rear Outfeed Table. In my old shop I made a folding rear outfeed table for my General 350 cabinet saw that was something like 24” deep and 48” wide. Altho it worked well, it took up a lot of space (which I had available in that shop), but it made a great assembly table. However, in my new small, narrow, shop, I had to rethink a design suitable for the space I had available. I knew a folding design probably wouldn’t work bec...
The Herculift mobile base supplied with the saw worked well, but it wasted a lot of space under the cabinet: In addition, the heavy (~200#) granite top and cast iron mechanism made the saw feel top heavy and somewhat unstable when moving it, due to the small caster footprint. As others have done, my solution to this condition was to redesign the mobile base with a wider caster footprint: The wider footprint distributed the weight much more evenly and made the saw feel very stabl...
