Table saw? #2: Almost finished cabinet saw.
The above title links to a blog on my cabinet saw. A welder is still on the list of tools to buy, so when I needed a base for this saw, I went to a local steel supplier that has a large assortment of scrap and cut steel available and bought a piece of 1/4” steel big enough that I could bolt some timber outriggers on the sides and let me set the saw between them [...]

I thought about doing something with wood or wood/metal, but since I have so many bed frames just sitting around doing nothing, I really needed to figure out something to do with them :) (plus, I have the welder and don’t use it near as much as I should). I like your bolt/ratchet lifting idea and may do something similar as well. Would be pretty easy to weld on a couple of tabs for them off the side of the frame. What did you use for the pads/feet on the bottom of them?


PS: Nice saw… love the cast iron base!
