Decked Out Ridgid Model R4511 Table Saw #7: A Breezy Side Extension Table

12-27-2011 06:19 AM by Paul Stoops | 6 comments »

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...

Decked Out Ridgid Model R4511 Table Saw #6: Rear Outfeed Table

12-27-2011 04:58 AM by Paul Stoops | 2 comments »

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...

Building the shop #6: First of three benches built

12-25-2011 09:49 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 3 comments »

What did I do on Christmas Eve? I BUILT A BENCH! Yesterday I hit Lowe’s and got the lumber, MDF, glue and screws for the first two of three benches I need to build. The first bench is now built and the pictures are below as well as posting my very first project! The purpose of this bench is to be determined until I put together the other two benches. Once I have them all built I can place them in various positions to see what will work the best in my long, narrow shop area. I̵...

Decked Out Ridgid Model R4511 Table Saw #3: Improved Dust Collection

12-24-2011 09:40 PM by Paul Stoops | 4 comments »

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 ...

Decked Out Ridgid Model R4511 Table Saw #2: Redesigned Mobile Base

12-24-2011 07:01 AM by Paul Stoops | 23 comments »

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...

Decked Out Ridgid Model R4511 Table Saw #1: Introduction and Background

12-24-2011 04:56 AM by Paul Stoops | 6 comments »

After moving into a different house with a very small shop, I had to leave behind my beloved General Model 350 3HP cabinet saw with Delta Unifence and 50 inch rails…....... :-( However, after much research and positive reviews on LJ and other forums, I purchased a Ridgid Model R4511 Hybrid Table Saw in 2009….... :-) I was much impressed by this well engineered tool with so many features offered at such a favorable price, especially with the sale going on at Home Depot at the ti...

Building the shop #5: Floor Plan for Shop - just a guess-timate

12-21-2011 07:42 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 10 comments »

Quick post here – 0400 comes awfully early… Here is my rough drawing of how I will lay out my shop. NOTES: ShopVac will be under the bench ShopSmith is questionable at this point, but it’s the only jointer I have right now, so it stays for now Brown rectangles with thick black border are workbenches Restricted area is immovable, lost space The purple area is the lazy susan that will hold the 4 tools as noted If you’ve got ideas, recommendations or ...
