I’ve decided I need to move up from the tiny consumer tablesaw I have to a contractor/hybrid type. I have one issue, however – I’m working in the basement of my old house with the floor sloped fairly heavily toward the drain. I figure I’ll need to build a platform that can hold the weight of the saw and have leveling feet on it but, as a fairly green beginner, I’m not sure how heavily I would need to build the platform. Any suggestions? Reading I should find?

Look up the specs of your saw to get the weight and go from there. It shouldn’t be rocket science, I would think the levelers on the saw would be adequate.

There are heavy duty levelers out there, the saw may even have them. Not unlike the levelers on my washing machine. I got some from Woodcraft a few years ago, good luck.

Heck some bolts and nuts you can rig up leg levelers.

Have your say...
