These improvements have made a great tablesaw into an even greater one! What a joy to use!
Please check it out -- perhaps there are some ideas that you could put to work in your own shop.
Some of the improvements were based upon ideas posted on this forum and others. Thanks to those of you who shared your improvements to this great tool.
