Hi first time poster long time lurker here. I recently got a bid on a custom armoire. in the bid the cleint was to provide the wood and they assured me that it would all be 4/4. well long story short about 10% of the lumber was 4/4 the rest was between 6 and 10/4 so i had a small resawing problem on my hands. so after much searching and hulla ballew i did some reworking of the lowly bs14002. Firstly i addressed the flimsy stand. i simply made a cabinet on wheels that brought the table height down to the same height as my ts3650. the cabinet is made from baltic birch ply and the cab top and table extensions are 1-1/4" ply. next i did the balancing act on the wheels and got some urethane tires. it was really remarkable the amount of material i had to remove to get the wheels balanced( if i did it again i would use self adhesive weights).then i added a grizzly riser block and the wood slicer bs blade. next thing i did may be a little unorthodox but it really seems to have worked out rather nicely. i wanted a little more power out of the bs so i took the motor from my ts3650 and with some new cast and machined pulleys attached it to my bs. i also upped the hp on my ts to 2 hp which really is nice as well. so all in all i now have a bs that is capable of resawing 12" white oak and passes the nickle test and my table saw is more of a hoss now as well
