« Part 4: Telescopic Overhead Mount and Table Saw Shroud Progress Part 5 of Overhead Dust Collection on a Modified Ridgid 3650 series Part 6: Almost completed! »

The ceiling mount is now completed with the exception of some tightening knobs. I screwed a few pieces of 2×4 across the ceiling joists since there was nothing above the directly above the table saw to attach the mount. I painted it white so it would blend in a little better with the shop. You can see that the mount is offset to the left of the blade but there is a horizontal L-Bracket that can be used to shift the shroud left or right over the blade. I had to use a couple of guide wires and a few turnbuckles to stabilize the mount a little better front to back. It is now pretty solid. The shroud is almost complete with the exception of a counter balance and dust collection. I will add this once I obtain the dust collection hose and components.
