Like the title says, this entry is simply to publicly say thanks to someone who went out of their way to do me a favor. I read on a post this board by TFKeefe (Tom) in which he mentioned his modified bench top table saw and a ZCI that he had made for it.

Since I also own a similar bench top saw and have always mourned the lack of ZCI plates for it, I questioned Tom about his. He was kind enough to provide me with pictures of how he had made his. As it turned out our saws are not exactly alike (mine is much older) in that the molding of the aluminum tops are different. However I was able to work from his design to develop something for my own saw.

As much as I want to replace this little saw with a full sized unit, it seems that the current sate of finances available to buy tools will not allow it. So, once again, by using material I had on hand, I have been able to finally own not one but two ZCI plates for my trusty Frankensaw.

Thank you Tom for all your help in showing me your design and describing how you made it happen.
