I’ve had this saw for a couple of years and so far it’s been great. I haven’t really done any mods to it except change the blade. I really need to build a crosscut sled though.

If you search Delta 36-725 on LJ you’ll find some threads where people have added router extensions, dust collection mods and such.

Thanks. I was also trying to inspire others that may have yet to post anything to maybe add a few pictures of what they have done.

Got a bit of a mess going on right now, but here’s a pic of mine with my router table insert.

Mines pretty much stock, I have started mod to remove blade shroud with 2in dust collection and using 4in through bottom, I’m also sealing seams underneath table top, etc.

I’ve had so saw several years and very happy with it…especially given cost.

I had a Bosch router table that I incorporated into the 36-725. It fit perfectly between the rails, but I had to drill new mounting holes. Probably took me less than two hours to complete.

I went ass backwards from the norm and put my router top on the left. I wanted it on the side that wide pieces of plywood hang off of when cutting them so to have more support.

WhyMe, great idea and I like your diagonal support underneath the table. Mine took a while to align because it was drooping.

I remember when you posted this originally. You actually had me on the fence. I can’t even remember how I made the decision to choose the right side.

Looks good. Sweet that it just fit up.

- SuperCubber

I think the right side is more common because you can use the saw fence with the router and is a more straight forward install. I use the router fence I have because it’s more versatile and has a dust port on it. Putting the router table on the left side was more work because I needed to make the diagonal supports because of mainly not removing the left wing to use the rails for support.

ok i made a sled for doing dadoes which is the main purpose of this saw,i made a clip board holder so when i need a reference to a cut list it’s right in front of me.i made a storage cabinet on the right side to hold whatever.i added a wixey digital readout.i also replaced the stock cord for a longer and heavier cord.i also made a dado insert from oak.im kinda an accessory junkie!so far it’s fine-LOL.
