that’s a nice setup. did you have any problems aligning the height of the left and righ benches with the saw? How ‘bout the fence?

the dust-collection is great, but the dedicated same-height side tables (in blue) are grand. I like the stop positioners as well, I imagine in some kind of T-track.
Nice shop

Looks great! Where did you get that funnel for the cyclone? I definately need to favorite this. Thanks for sharing.

Nice job! A modded dust collector is in my own future. Looks like that funnel used to be an orange cone? Like for laying out a sports field or construction site?; interesting because I have a few of those around.

Home depot traffic cone 2 inch pipe and a few fittings make a cycllone . Not hard to build. Table deck height is a hair lower than the saw deck just a hair. Easy to get close but I can always shimm it up. not down so if u build one keep that in mind.

I’m about to rebuild my table for the 3rd time. As you use the saw you get more and more of a feel for how the thing should be. I like your dust collection system and have had something like that in mind for awhile too. I also have the same saw.. a pleasure to use a tool like that isn’t it?

Some great ideas there. I have the same saw on the way from THD, free shipping and a vet discount, couldn’t pass it up. I will post after I get it set up.
