First of all, I apologize to all L J’s if I’m in the wrong “section” as this was the only place I could find where I could upload some pictures. Let me know if I need to move it somewhere else….tks
Here’s the story of a poor rockwell/beaver table saw that was ready to be tossed in the metal bin! I had this saw for quite awhile and was always frustrated that my fence would never lock square. One day at a wood show I saw this “accusquare” fence that promised to replace my old fence. I bought it, brought it home and never looked back! ( no more tap-tap in back, measure, tap-tap in front…you get the picture!) My saw only had a 24” table but when I added the accusquare, I increased my table area to an overall lenght of 68” (see pictures). It was around that time that I wanted to upgrade my router so decided “why not” add it next to the table saw. That way I can use my fence for both the saw and the router. Again, I’m very pleased with the outcome. The table sits on top of an old sea chest that I modified and it collects most of my sawdust inside of it. I only have to empty it “when it’s almost full”. So, next time you look at your old table saw…. :-)
