« Part 10: changed DC hood mounting Part 11 of SCMS stand w/ folding wings series Part 12: Fence is done »

I finished tuning up the saw, put a new kerf plate in and put it back into service. I’ve had the Incra track for a while now, so I finally got motivated to get the fence finished.

I decided to make the entire thing out of melamine, as I have scraps of it. I used TB Melamine glue and biscuits to keep things from sliding around.

I had to tweak the saw position to get the saw fence parallel to the edge of the wing, which will provide the reference edge for the wing fence….

Here it is again clamped in the extended position…

I’m still cleaning up the shop from my bunny hutch build, so I started loading the partition for cut offs.

Hope to finish it up tomorrow.

First, bottom left cutoff cubby has a nice thick piece of wood for turning something. Better hope my wife doesn’t see it – grin.

Great job with the build. While I love my compound miter saw, I never really saw the need for a sliding CMS. I figured that’s why they make table saws. However, after reading through your project notes, I can see it being a very useful tool.

Lookin’ good!
Yup, shop builds are important….
They make all the “real” projects sooooo much easier to get right!
Well, at least less worserer, in my case!!! %^0
I’m still waiting for my parts to arrive!!!
What’s up with that??? ;^)

Carry on….
