I decided to build one of my own to fit under my outfeed table. It also has a router table insert and downdraft sanding dust collector. I have an entire blog series on its construction you can view here:

A great addition and highly recommended for any shop, space-constrained or otherwise.

Nice project. You have added a nice cabinet to your shop that is both versatile and functional.

Well done.

That is a nice cabinet. I like the fact that you were able in integrate a router insert, downdraft table and tablesaw all into one space. I have a small workspace and try to consolidate as much as possible. Great Job!

Great job….I believe that I have a similar vintage saw in my garage with all the chrome knobs , etc. on it that I hope to make functional someday soon….it’s only been waiting about four years so far !!! L O L

I added a PALS system to the saw with upgraded pulleys and a link belt. I also replaced the fence. I’ve got it aligned with the miter slots and with the zero clearance inserts it makes pretty-good cuts. Considering how much I spent upgrading it compared to what I paid for it ($75), I probably should have just bought another saw! ;)

I created the plans myself. It is made from 3/4” birch ply and 3/4” and 1/2” MDF. You can get the plans from the last post in my blog on its construction:
