Well i got a good amount done today but not as much as i would have hoped. first i cut the slots for the t-tracks that will secure the fence. i ordered it and i don’t have it yet so i figured that i would cut the slots now so i can attach the router table to the saw and when i get the t-tracks just pop them in.
now that everything having to do with the torsion box is completed (including the router being mounted, sorry no pictures) i will turn my attention to the legs. i just took two pieces of mdf and glued and screwed them at a 90. then i attached them to the torsion box with 6 screws each leg. here is a picture of the torsion box with the legs attached.
i also put some levelers on the legs. since everything is done now its time to attach the router table to the saw. i just drilled the holes for the 3/8” bolts with the next size up drill bit (a 7/16th bit i think) to allow for a little wiggle room. then i just tightened the bolts enough so the table would be held up but no too tight that i couldn’t move it. then with my dads help he put an angle iron half on the table and half over the router table with my dad holding the angle iron to the table. then i held the table up to the angle iron and adjusted the levelers so the router table was even with the saw table. then i tightened the bolts going into the table saw. here is a picture of everything attached.
so thats it for today. tomorrow i will do the fence. figure i might as well do it now so when i get the t-tracks i can pop them in, drill the holes for the t-bolts in the fence and I’ll be done. so until tomorrow!
