Any body ever seen a right tilt TS set up in true “mirror image” fashion with the extension table set up on the left hand side?
I’m familiar with the pros and cons of right tilt vs. left tilt. And if I had my druthers, I’d pick left tilt, because that’s what I’m familiar with (I’ve never used a right tilt TS).
BUT….. I’m about to score a once in a life time deal on an older 3 HP 10” Jet TS (that is in need of some modest TLC and clean up) that will let me upgrade from my trusty Sears contractor saw.
But the saw is right tilt.
Since this is the only way I’m going to be able to get into a cab. saw in the foreseeable future…. I’m ready to learn to use a right tilt saw….. and running it with the fence on the left full time seems like it might be a good way to go.
After inspecting the saw today, it looks like swapping sides on the extension table hardware will be a no brainer, and since I’m going to have to make a new top for the ext. table anyways…. I figured I might as well swap sides.
Also, with the way my shop is laid out, it would be very convenient to ditch my router table and install the plate into the extension table off the left side of the saw. Not so on the right.
Inquiring minds want to know.
