My father-in-law gave me his old porter cable bench top table saw that hadn’t been used in 10 years except to hold bags of charcoal. The original workshop had this on a stand. The rails ultimately rusted and failed so I initiated this upgrade almost 10 months ago and slowly chip away. I added the VSC fence which was great too. More to come…

That’s a sweet fence. If I had the money I would get one in a heartbeat. Welcome to lumberjocks

Great job on the upgrade. I bet that all the storage and work area will come in very handy.

Thanks for sharing your work.
