I’m looking for some advice on a good way to upgrade my craftsman contractor style table saw. I wouldn’t say that I’m unhappy with the saw itself, just how I have it set up. It has a 42X27 table and is on a nice stand with wheels. The fence could be upgraded and I wish the dust collection was a little better, but those are things I can do later.
I guess I’m looking to design a better version of what I have now. I like having an outfeed table, and an extension to the left is nice too. It also doubles as a bench (which I really don’t have room for), but I didn’t do a good enough job trying to keep it flat. It’s badly sagged and isn’t very sturdy.
Some of the things I’d like to include are some drawers under the left wing, and perhaps a vice or bench screw. Heck, maybe I should build the outfeed and left wing workbench style and make it a work bench too.
Have any of you done this kind of thing before and if so, would you mind posting pics?
Here’s what I’m starting with
