Well it is not yet complete, I still have a fence to sort out (currently using a clamping straight edge) and I have plans for a cross cut sled and blade guard (including some form of extraction port). Here are some pictures of progress so far:
First job – remove the old legs

Then add a new frame (chunky 3” legs)

Then a new top

The top is made of a sheet of 3/4” ply topped with a 1/8” sheet of MDF to give a really smooth top. Two mitre slots added (t-track to be added soon) and a zero clearence insert.
So far it has only been used to cut plywood but has performed well.
Accuarcy – On a 3’ length of ply the thickness of the cut piece varied less than 0.02” across the whole length.
Cost – (£30 for wood I hadn’t already got, £35 for a new 400mm Bosch optiline (60 teeth) blade giving an 75mm cut depth)
