After 20 years using my craftsman, I decided to upgrade to a SawStop (with 3 years of thinking about it). I decided to keep the old saw and set it up with the new one:
I want to use the new one for ripping and the old one for my cross-cut sled. It seems like I’m always switching between these two. I took off the left wing of the old saw and cut the fence down somewhat.
I made a 4’ out-feed table, so 8’ boards would be well supported, after being pushed past the splitter.
I added a 30” drop-leaf extension on the end for when I need to rip 12’ stock. I’ll also end up using this for an assembly table at times.
Here’s the setup with the fence and the cut box.
Now I need to build rolling cabinets to go into the empty spaces underneath the tables.
