This project involved making the following changes and modifications to my Ridgid Model R4511 Table Saw to make it better fit the constraints of my small shop and my personal preferences.
• Improved Mobile Base
• Internal Baffling
• Improved Dust Collection
• On-Board Storage
• Rear Extension Table
• Downdraft Side Extension Table
• Upgraded Rip Fence
• Relocated Tilt Handwheel
• Digital Tilt Angle Indicator
• Zero Clearance Inserts
• Upgraded Miter Gage
• Upgraded Power Switch
• Conversion to 240VAC Input
These modifications were discussed in detail here: http://lumberjocks.com/paulnwa/blog/series/4631
Some of the ideas and materials used were based upon the great discussions and projects previously offered here on the LJ website.
This project was part of a narrated slide presentation given December 8, 2011, to the Northwest Woodworkers Guild, of Seattle, WA, of which I am an active member.
Any comments and constructive criticisms are welcomed. I will answer any questions you might have.
