When I was using Opa’s old 9” table saw, I had replaced the cheap metal stand with a MDF one, This let me level it out, and absorbed sooo much vibration.. well.. I got a good deal on a 10” Contractor saw with a 52” rip fence, I just had to do it.. but.. it came with the standard metal stand. The vibration was driving me nuts….
Couple weeks later I got an e-mail from a friend that a local moulding company was giving away 2’ x 3’ sheets of MDF that were 30mm thick (1 3/6” Thick!!!!) Ding Ding Ding!!
Time to build a new stand.. Boy.. this 30mm stuff is HEAVY! Just a simple 24” x 24” x 24” stand. I put a ramp inside for the dust collection, and it was well over 150lbs….Perfect.
Well.. It’s all put together now.. and… Poof! very little vibration :)
Next.. I have to replace that damed outfeed/assembly table.. I’m thinking Cabinets made out of 30mm MDF should make it good and solid!
-- But honey.. this new power tool will pay for itself when we re-do the kitchen!
