So i am new here to LJ and i am excited to post new and exciting things this to get all sorts of feedback.

I recently upgraded my hitachi table saw by installing the Vega Pro 50 Fence system! Its huge! The 40 would have been plenty, but for what i paid ($275) it was much cheaper than the 40 that i could find and i have the room for it so i figured what the heck! :). I took the wings off the saw becasue they were pretty much worthless and the stamped steel legs make for a pretty flimsy base now.

So now i am going to build a mobile base for my saw (inspired by Laney Shaughnessy on Youtube) and some new wings. I will eventually mount my router into the right side of the table and build a lift for it as well but that will be at another time. Here is a picture of my saw now. I know its sad becasue it looks like a storage shelf. But that will all change soon.

Will update with Pictures as i go!

Very cool, I have to do the same thing, so i’m gonna wait and lurk on your blog while you get ‘er done. Then I’m gonna go ahead and procastinate for a few months, possibly a year and then start on my build.

Jake: Haha…thanks for checking this out. I look forward to completing it and showing it off. Pictures to come soon. I started the pocket hole frame tonight after work and got most of it assembled. I don’t have a shop at home so I get in what I can after hours.
