I did something really radical with my
Delta Contractor's saw. I have an
extra rip fence, and I cut about 1/4"
off the bottom of the part that slides
over the saw table; there's a hollow
space in there like on the bottom pf
a steel door that allows you to do
that and get away with it. Now I can
lay a big piece of 1/4" plywood over
the table and the fence slides over it,
I just crank the blade up through the
new plywood while running it, and
have a smooth, solid surface with
zero clearance to work with.
