Hey jocks,
I have a question for you all. I recently picked up a tablesaw off craigslist. I’ve had a router table for a little while but when I got it, I made a cabinet for it with casters so I could move it around. When I made this cabinet I knew I wanted to add my future saw on the end for portability and so I could use one incra fence for the two tools. When I made the base, I left an area at the end big enough to accommodate.

My question is, in order to bring the saw top into the same plane as the router table, I need to have some kind of micro adjust. I was thinking of attaching the saw to its cabinet with adjustable bolts but then thought that probably wouldn’t be a great idea. Now I’m leaning towards making leveling feet for the bottom of the cabinet that would attach to the base at the same time, but I still don’t feel comfortable with this. Any suggestions?

A picture is worth a thousand words but leveling feet sound like a good idea to me.
