Step 7: The Base and Post
Now comes that funky base. I had a few options for mounting the base, the photo shows the one I settled on for now. Reassembly is simple, a steel rod slides into the holes and is held in place with a set screw. The post goes into it's hole and there are 2 set screws to hold that. Simple.
I bolted the base to the worktop using the holes that used to bolt to the saw. I then adjusted and levelled the post and tightened the set screws. The post has to run that far through the base in order to keep it level. Not the best solution perhaps, but it does work.
The table slides down the post and the clamp handle screws in and tightens. Keep the table high to help hold the upper casting when you put that on.
