Quick couple of projects today to enhance the functionality of my new table saw. First up is a caddy that magnets to the fence and rides along with it storing important things I find myself hunting for all of the time. I’m hoping now that they have a proper home they stay there.

Next up is an auxiliary fence I guess its called. It sits down over top the T-Square fence and lets me attach a sacrificial fence or maybe something with a t-track in it. Who knows what I will use it for. My current other project needed the sacrificial fence first so that’s what I built.

If you look closely the sacrificial panel isn’t bolted down yet because somehow I left the hardware store with 10-32 t-nuts and 1/4-20 hardware.

Right now the fence has some felt pads to help it glide along but I think both accessories could benefit from some PTFE adhesive skids.

I’ve seen these before and have thought I should build one. They look dog gone functional. I may just have to knock something out this next week. Thanks for the motivation.

sansoo, that tray is one handy little addition to the tablesaw.

I always seem to find a but... One tablesaw addition I will recommend to anyone not totally fully shekel constrained and more safety conscious is a set of Jess-em Stock guides.... hence my big but (further to too many pizas)... the high fence would make fitting difficult.

I like the auxiliary fence idea…adding that to the list of things to do. Nice idea!

LBD – I’ve been eyeballing those guides from Jess’em. They wont fit the stock fence on the 36-725T2 unless you remove the thin rip fence thats incorporated into the stock fence. Chances are it will get removed and I will end up with the Jess’em guides. I have the Jess’em Master Fence II on my still to be completed router table and love their products.

Madmark – A better ZCI is planned but with this saw using sheet metal throat plates its currently outside my skill set to get done. Well outside current skills and allotted time to learn new ones. Maybe once the pin router is done I can use the existing ZCI as a template and knock one out.

Check out this Dave Stanton video... it may give you some inspiration.

Can you post some close up pictures of the throat plate openning (and the plate out of gap)... Previously a friend made the same claim and I had a play around within SketchUp and we came up with a viable solution… in fact it was so simple he was embarassed..,
I make no promisses other than I’ll have a look (between glasses of vino and not thru them).
