no previous part Part 1 of Craftsman table saw upgrades series Part 2: Sawstop 52 inch fence upgrade »

Ive had my Craftsman 21833 table saw for a little over a year. Ive been torn over which direction to go with it. I was going to build my own T-square fence until i stumbled on a sawstop professional T-square fence. here is what i plan on doing to the saw

1. Sawstop fence upgrade
2. Mobile platform. At first i will simply build the platform and place the saw on it on the leg set that came with the saw. then ill build a cabinet for the saw and a cabinet with drawers to sit beside it, then yet another cabinet for a router table
3. Addition of a router table that will use the sawstop fence and possibly a router lift

this whole project may take a while. Ill update as I make progress

I have had the same saw for 2 years now. I initially had some issues, but they have all been resolved. It is a great saw. I plan on putting a router in the right open area between the rails. I already have the material, just have to do it. Good luck on your upgrading

I have 2 craftsman 10” table saws and am planning on a big project for them soon going to hook them together side to side with 2 extensions on the outside of each one for a total width of 88” then I am going to add a Delta T2 fince you can find them on the net for about 150 dollers. I am going to build them on a rolling deck so I can move them around in my shop with rubber press down stops to keep it from rolling during use. sounds like you have a great projuct comming up.
