Is there any chance of the cast iron table becoming magnetized? My concern with magnets being used on woodworking tools is that the tool becomes magnetized and then attracts metal particles. I recently was working on a smoother plane and when I took the blade away from the chip breaker it felt like it was stuck to it. I first suspected something sticky holding the two pieces together but on further inspection found that the blade has somehow become magnetized. Probably because someone put it on a magnetic bar on the wall or some such. Not good.
Anyway, just thought I would mention that since you were describing mounting a door lock. Might be worth exploring first.
