Sliding Crosscut Table for SawStop

I haven’t paid too much attention to sliding tables before, although the Sliding Extension Table on the Triton was rather handy.

The latest offering from SawStop looks rather interesting, and I’ll be giving it serious consideration when it becomes available down under.

No doubt it will be able to be fitted to other tablesaws.

I do wonder if anything has been added to insulate the fence from the operator- I would imagine that if you cut the fence accidentally while you were contacting it, the brake would activate.

In any respect, I can well see how useful an add-on it would be- very tempting indeed.

Hard day on the broom

Took a day to clean up the workshop after the recent projects, and the dust extraction runs. Amazing how fast you can fill a trailer with shed rubbish!

Relocated the dust extractor to the mezzanine again- a much easier evolution this time around with the winch. Got it in location, but needed a little extra height clearance, so dropped the castor wheels off. Where it is now located looks good- directly above the main dust creators.

Haven’t had time to achieve much else, which is why it has been a bit quiet.

Looking forward to the CNC, and the 3D printer is a bit over a week away. I have a camera slider currently in transit from the US, so that will make for some interesting video angles.

There is a few tidbits of news from around the traps- will post about them separately.
