Hi,I Had to make improvements to this saw as it was frustrating me to he’ll with its crappy fence and Riving knife/guard so its had a makeover with a new fence reworked riving knife,new guard position,pedestal,extraction,and side extension.
I made the stand out of pallet wood and added castors the the back leg added a dust collection bucket that’s attached to my extractor
I made the fence using 50 mm Aluminium angle running in a channel, the fence is out of Oak and faced it with Melamine.
I cut the riving knife guard holder off with a grinder and smoothed it into a nice curve and repositioned the guard on an extendible arm also I made a sliding adjustable 5 position guard hight steady out off a piece of scrap plywood
II fixed channels on the saw body and added a sliding side extension I have a small workshop so i had to have as small a footprint for my saw as possible.
Although I have gone trough all the steps you can get a more comprehensive view of my table saw in the video below.
