I built a platform below the work bench at a little over the height
of the RAS. Then I set the final height of the saw table by
using washers around the mounting bolts. Another, and more elegant
way is to set the platform low enough that you can fasten some
long bolts up through it and through the mounting holes. Then you
lock down some nuts to hold the bolts. Then another set of nuts
on the bolt, under the table bottom. That way you can get a fine
adjustment of the height of the table by turning the nuts. Then
a set of lock nuts on top of the table mounting bracket and you
are all done. Of course you also need appropriate washers.
Indeed, again. I used 5/16x1-1/4x1-1/4 angle for the supporting
structure and 3/8 bolts through for height adjustment. You might get
away w/ slightly smaller w/ smaller saw and still be enough.
For independent tables, use the same idea on the legs -- counterbore
holes and use a 1/4" plate on the bottoms for adjusting. I've seen
folks just put a lag screw in the legs' end grain and adjust them...
