Very well done, Andrew. I always need more table space for cutting large sheets on my table saw. I wind up cutting the pieces oversize in case them move too much and then have to recut the smaller piece to size.

Thanks for sharing. That is nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks COOL…

Bar Clamp Fence? Use original fence when closer to blade over the saw?

Nice sets of drawers… on both ends…
Plenty of places to put workpieces… input / output, etc.

I guess you have it on some hefty casters?

Glad you FINALLY decided to show it to us… LOL… 13 years…!

Thank you!

Joe you are 100% right. 18” and less OEM fenceis used. For cuts 18”-44.5” the pipe clamp fence comes into play.

That’s pretty cool. I have the same saw and did a lot of modifications to enhance its capabilities, and it works great. Your project makes me think about more potential improvements.

hello Andrew. I guess we think alike because I also did the same thing to my saw using a pipe clamp as a fence.
Great job on yours!!

Have your say...
