I took these screw-in nuts out of an old piece of furniture, but you can buy them at any hardware store. The press in ones work well too, but they re...
I bought a small 10" table saw from skilsaw, and I really like it, but the table itself was too small for what I wanted to use it for, so I decided to make a larger table out of 3/4 inch plywood. The holes in the table really made it easy to bolt the plywood down (using sunk holes of course). The problem was that this made the fence useless, so I needed to make my own. I played with a lot of ideas and looked for more online, and as always a simple solution arose as the best.
Step 1: Square Your Table
First thing you have to do is make sure the edges on the new table are perpendicular to the blade. I did this by putting a level against the blade (be careful not to push against the blade), then a T-square and another level to keep the edges square to the blade. This will also make sure your table edges are always the same length away from each other, even though with this design its not that important. Once you have the edges square get the length of your table (from the front to the back). Mine was 26 1/2 inches.
