Intro: How to Make a Crappy Table Saw Into a Good One
Hi,I Had to make improvements to this saw it was frustrating me to he'll with its crappy fence and Riving knife/guard so its had a makeover with a new fence reworked riving knife,new guard position,pedestal,extraction,and side extension .
Step 1: Fence
I made the fence using 50mm Aluminium angle running in a channel, the fence is out of Oak and faced it with Melamine.
Step 2: Fence Stop
this is a hold down clap from a mitresaw
Step 3: Riving Knife
I cut the riving knife guard holder off and repositioned the guard on an extendible arm
Step 4: Guard Steady
adjustable 5 position guard steady
Step 5: Extending Side Table
I have a small workshop so i had to have as small a footprint for my saw as possible.
Although I have gone trough all the steps you can get a more comprehensive view of my table saw in the video bellow.( If viewing this on mobile phone the link below may not work I have put a link at the start sorry for the confusion.)
