here it is.....a home-made conglomeration of an older Rockwell Model 4-345
contractor's saw, a shop built cabinet made from a plan that I obtained
from the Internet and a Powermatic Model 66-TA Accu-Fence® system that
I acquired and some polyurethane cabinet wheels with two way locks.
What do you think? I need to tell you that the saw is dead on accurate
making cuts but although the power is adequate, it is definitely a little
under powered. However, it will do until I can afford to upgrade
the saw. If and when I do, it is going to be hard for me to give
up the Accu-Fence® system. Hummm...............maybe the new
saw will be a brand new Powermatic.
cabinet is designed with a center door and a slide out frame inside the
cabinet at that location that supports a kitchen waste basket sized (13
gallon) reinforced plastic bag. Not exactly a totally dust free collection
system but it works fairly well, especially considering the Jet Air Filtration
Unit sits directly over head (not visible in this photo).
cabinet has four various sized drawers on either side of the center door
and has a compartment on both sides at the rear containing adjustable shelves.
Lots of storage area for blades, zero clearance blade inserts, blade wrenches,
push sticks and whatever else I can find that "needs a home".
