So I now have an Incra TS-LS system for my cr@ppy Ryobi contractor table saw.
I need some input as to how much room to allow for ripping. Because of the old style contractor non-riving knife set-up, I will have to cut the rear fence to allow for the blade guard and splitter to still work.
1. My saw is right tilting so I’d like to keep the ability to bevel rip boards.
So given the need to only rip normal planks, my thinking is to reduce the ripping capacity on the right down to say 16” and then increase the capacity on the left side. This is more to do with the front and rear rails as I will be able to install some sort of table filler to support the new sled. This way I will be able to accurately cross-cut plywood panels (broken down on the tilt-out panel guide) as well as long boards as the table saw fence will be on the right side out of the way.
I know this set-up is unconventional but given my scenario will I regret moving the ‘main support base’ to the left of the blade?
