Fantastic job, I've been following (and empathizing with) your threads regarding finding the right saw…glad to see it worked out so well for you. I'll come to these pictures when despairing at the time it is taking me to find the right saw…looks like it works out in the end with a little patience and hard work! Hope you have fun with your new setup!
Bert, I am super impressed! That's amazing. How do you like that benchdogs router table insert? I ordered one for my saw but haven't gotten it yet. Can this thing be manhandled into place by myself with some 2×4's, or is it a 2 person job?
I did not yet used the router table but I do not expect any issue with it.
I had no issue installing it as it is not excessively heavy ( I am old but still strong. I manhandled the table saw out of my trailer all by my self. I also lifted it up from the ground to replace the base all by myself)) but I had issue installing the router, none of the holes lined up , I ended up drilling and counter sinking my own, some of the screws were missing, I had to cut the bottom of the plastic insert as it was too thick and interfering with the router base ( fully up the full collet nut is above the table) not allowing to have flat surface and I am not sure that i like the large opening in the insert, I wish that they used a different system like wood strove rings.
Altogether it seems very nice especially the fence and the double slot in the front.
I am sure that I shall like very much.
