I was thinking about maybe combining features of the various tables.
The long fence would certainly be useful, I am not so keen on the idea
of having the adjustable height table though, looks to me like all the
weight of the saw is on four bolts suspended in mid air that are going
I would design the system to allow for some tweakage in the attachment
of the tables, then once everything was lined up right set them
permenently with screws. I cannot see much point in being able to swap
out the mitre saw for a mortiser. I suspect that the unit was
originally designed for a planer which would explain the flat tables
and adjustment mechanism.
I have seen quite a few people mention that casters, even lockable ones
are not a good idea for a unit like this, they can be unstable. Has
anyone looked at the scheme Norm used on his assembly table where the
casters are mounted on a flip down plate secured by flaps? That looks
like a much more stable scheme to me. Unfortch, I have only seen the
photos on the Web site, not the program.
