I’m hoping someone here remembers or can find a posting that showed a c-man 113 style contractor saw with a backing that allowed the motor to tilt without having to remove one or more stuck on panels/covers to the wide open back of this style saw. I can’t recall if I saw it here or on Woodnet.

Any help would be appreciated.

I made one for my 315 c man saw which is similar to a 113. here is a link to the thread for my saw mods. and a video of the baffle in motion, it may take a few seconds before it starts playing. When I have free time I was going to pull the back pieces off and get some more detailed pics, I’ve just been swamped with projects.

Thanks. That’s what i was looking for. Now if we could just get making a set of plans for that set up added to the list of projects you’re swamped with, there’d be a shot at adding something that’s really elegant to my two Emerson built saws!

Just an idea, something else you could do. I went with a drawer under the saw with a wider opening than 10 in sq. Then added a wrap cabinet just under the motor and added a dust drawer to it as well. Having used this for a few weeks I finally checked the motor drawer. Almost nothing in it. Now the drawer under the saw I have emptied a few times but the larger opening allows the dust to spread out better and not make a huge mound in the middle.

Project with more pictures is here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/379017 May not be what you want but maybe it gives you an idea for something else. drawers under the cabinet are full of tools, a bonus space that usually gets forgotten.

I had intended to build this enclosure by fine woodworking but haven’t gotten around to it yet. If you can get the whole article I thought I remembered seeing a lot of detail on it but not full dimensioned drawings because every saw is slightly different.

I do have some full size 11×17 drawings on the computer that I used for the main pieces, I used spray adhesive to stick the paper templates to the boards and used a scroll saw to cut out the openings. I think some pics of how its all put together would be helpful to anybody trying to make it and my build was complicated by the out feed table and my back fence rail that you may not have to deal with. I haven’t used the table saw much lately since my panel saw is still set up on the front porch and it has been my work horse lately. The panel saw has come in handy for the fence project, trim and door project, flooring project, shed project and more. When I get a chance I will get the table saw out and take some detailed pics maybe later this week.

uptoolateman – That would be sincerely appreciated. Like you, I have a back fence rail on both of my emerson TSs, so some modification would be necessary and that’s not an issue. I’m really interested in how you got the cover to slide from side to side as the motor tilts from 90° to 45°. That’s the really elegant aspect to this modification.

To the others revisiting those box in strategies, thanks. However, they will take up room I don’t have when the saw is in it’s stored position. Having a one car, 12X20 garage/shop that also houses my “toy”, weekends/clear weather only Volvo C70 means every inch is important.
