I've got an MK Tile Saw with an over table arm - kind of like a radial
arm saw, but fixed height and position. It came with a 7" blade. I
want to put a 6" lapidary blade on it. I use it to slice art glass
billets sometimes. The 6" lapidary blade is thinner and cleaner.
BUT, the arm and table are fixed for 7". I can build an "overtable"
- but in doing so I'll lose the use of the fence, which while not
exactly a precision instrument, is good enough and easier to use than
manually clamping a straight edge at both ends. Alternatively, I could
lower the arm (reposition the point at which the arm is screwed to the
table body), but that looks problematic as well. BTW, the saw is a
wet saw - so any mods need to keep that in mind.
Anyone run into this before and have any bright ideas or comments?
