Got busy for quick addition to my table saw. On the right wing extension table. Since I have a 50” Delta II fence. It’s very long and wide. So this Sunday I mounting a router plate into the table top. While it is done and came out ok. I was not pleased as to how the top cut. One of those times. After its done and looking it over. I came up with different ways. I could have done it better. I used it last night. To radius the outside edge of my Super Sled Blade Shield. Worked very smooth. Much safer and easier to use than my benchtop router table. I am currently looking over my design for a new table saw cabinet. I want to remove the legs off the table saw. Mount the saw to the cabinet. With access to dust chute under it. To the left of the saw. I will have 3 drawers. For storage of feather broards, clamps and what nots. Just to the right of the saw base. Will be 2 drawers. Then farther to the right, boxed area for the router motor and dust collection. Under the router area will be 2 drawers having about 5” drawer depth each. Now to the right of the router plate. The last 24” of the table top. I am thinking of drilling a group of holes thru the top. Box in under that area. For making a downdraft table for that end. Under the downdraft table area. Shall be two cabinet doors. For a 24” wide cabinet that will be storage of larger items.
I think the last addition for this saw cabinet. Is for a horizontal router table to be bolted on the left side. I am currently designing the horizontal router table. This would be mounted with a speed bracket so that it could be removed or added easliy. Since my shop is in a 2 car garage. Space is a premium. This saw uses a lot of area. So trying to max out its functions for the space it consumes. If you think of any errors I am about to make. Please feel free to give me your tips and advice. All info is greatly appreciated. How I love this website.
