I suppose he had a perfectly good reason for doing this but somehow it
escapes me at the moment.
Here's a guy who managed to gang two Craftsman table saws together.
Ebay item #4393374960 if the link fails.
Looks convenient to me. In one of the pictures the saw on the left has a
dado stack mounted ... I would love to have the capability to keep a saw set
up for dadoes, or other uses, and be able to use the same fence and table
surface for ripping.
Two things I am always trying to figure a way around is the time spent
changing blades/bits, and the resultant re-setup. I cut some fingerjoints
yesterday and realized I didn't cut enough test pieces to get a good fit ...
you know the rest of the story. .
This would have solved the problem. Hmmmm ... I am thinking if two is good,
four has to be better? ;)
Well, we can dream ... if I should somehow go to heaven, besides joining SRV
on bass in a three piece blues band, I am gonna request a nail gun for every
size nail, a router for every bit, a table saw for every blade, and a shop
of sufficient size to make Tom Plaman green with envy.
The remedy is simple. Cut an extra 1 of everything that may be needed
because of a screw up during a complicated set up. Thay way you will never
need to undo the set up and it almost guarantees that you will not need the
extra pieces simply because they are available. At least it works that way
for me. LOL
Or perhaps he should have been.
It's heartening to see that no one else here seems to have figured out
what he was attempting to do. I was afraid thaat it was going to be
something totally obvious to everyone but me.<g>
Think I'll drop him a note and ask THE QUESTION. Good for a grin if

Many years ago we had a job to build 140 video cassette display
cabinets for a convenience store chain. We had 280 4'x8' sheets of
various sheet goods that we needed to cut into 4'x4' pieces. At the
time we had two of the old Delta 10" saws with the chrome fence bars
that would only rip to 24". We bolted them both together and used
the fence on one saw to cut from the other. Of course we had to
measure to the fence since the scale was just a little bit off.:-)
