Nice and simple solution! Looks like the front of the frame attaches to the bottom of the front fence rail. What does the back of the frame attach to?

Best of luck with the saw Bill. In my humble (and very biased) opinion, you got the better saw. Nice job on the drawer.

Now wait a minute Lenny….I have to be biased and say Bill 1225 didn’t get the better saw…..I happen to own a Unisaw and he missed the better deal……:). Just kidding…..Both are very good saws…I even looked at a PM2000 myself, but since I’m a Delta guy…..well…..what can I say….Good choice on the PM. Can’t have too much storage for your saw…..I built a cabinet for mine some time back…Take a look in my projects page and you’ll see it…..I really like it…I had a single drawer under mine, but wanted more room for junk, so I designed this cabinet…..Holds lots of toys for my toy…...:))

Yeah I built a cabinet too but I really like the drawer idea. Did you have to drill holes in the rail?

i really wanted the unisaw but i got turned off by my local ww store when they wouldnt honor there military discount be cause as the owner said ” your only in the reserves”( little did he know i was active for 8 years deployed 4 times and wounded) So i had a temper tantrum and orderd the pm2000 online cause of the onyx paint job, but no i dont regret it one bit . back on topic i didnt attache it to the rails at all just butted the frame up to it them screwed the frame to the under side of the table which was 3/4 plywood doubled up.

Let me say “Thanks for your service and poviding my freedom!” You deserve more than a discount. Plus I like the idea of putting a drawer there.

A second on the “thanks from all of us”! As for the dealer, he lost the sale and you got the saw you deserve.

I would say you made the right choice to avoid doing business with the Unisaw salesman. Nothing like a little prejudice to make the blood boil, regardless of any active duty / reserve career. Military service is service in my book.

Nice accessory table, btw. Are you going to paint it to match the saw?
