This is a project I call Jet 2.0. I bought this tablesaw from a local cabinet company here in Wichita Kansas that had upgraded to Sawstop machines. I pondered over that very same idea for the last two or three months until stumbling on this machine on craigslist. Paid 1100 for it although it may not have been worth that much. After fixing the fence and calibration issues it’s now a pretty nice saw. This version is definitely much better than what I started with! I learned some very valuable lessons on this project. Not all plywood is created even remotely equal. One company true 3/4” other company (menards 11/16”). Also some my flush cutting bit cuts just a hair proud of the surface. Can’t tell by looking or even feeling but when you try and level everything you notice the corners/edges are a hair high.

Thanks guys. Yes it does remain completely mobile. I saw that others had problems with the angle iron sagging so I just used some scrap lintel pieces from a house I built . Also I extended the 1 side a ways past the saw so the support was almost vertical. This was so the access on the side of the saw could remain operable as well.
