    Steel City table saw arrives!!! and question

    Hi everyone.
    I ordered a Steel City table saw last week and she arrived today..
    Will have pics up later tonight or tomorrow.

    My saw came with a 12" table board.
    I do not know what that is or where it goes. Dont see anything in the manual about it.
    Is this merely an extension of the cast wings and if so where does it go?
    Or is it a small outfeed type table?

    Thanks everyone for your help.

    If you got one cast iron wing for the left and one for the right like my Orion cousin, it is additional table surface to the right of the blade after the cast iron wing. I dumped mine and added an additional cast wing.

    I opened up my fence assembly and it had the info in the instructions I was looking for.

    Thanks Glen.

    Craig. All I can say is congratulations on your purchase of a great machine. We have a 15" planer, 6" wedge-bed jointer, 13" wide-belt sander, VS mini-lathe, and a grinder, and we love them all. If and when the time comes for a new cabinet saw, it will be a granite-table Steel City. They are making some great machines!!

    Now, get that thing dirty and give us your review!!

    Hi everyone.
    Thanks for the replies.
    I have some pics I took Tuesday during initial assembly.
    I have not gotten any farther than what is shown up to now.
    Hope to finish assembly tomorrow (Friday).

    So far very pleased with saw. Seems very good quality.
    The thing that is kind of an issue right now is the cast iron wings seem to bow in the middle. I have the ends lined up with the center section but the middle of the wings seem to be bowed downward. I emailed Steel City and will see how that turns out.
    Anyway, on to the pics.
    Nothing exciting since its not fully assembled yet.
    Will take more when assembly continues.

    Here is the metal container that surrounded the saw.



    Saw packaging removed.....Sweet!

    Very nice, Craig... Look forward to hearing how you like it after you have a chance to run some wood through it...

    Congratulations Craig. I hope you enjoy it and get many hours of fun from it. By the way I got exactly the same frame with my saw. I think they must have been made in the same factory. (for the record mine is craftsman version of the same saw) What do you have planned for that piece of steel. I have been debating what to with it but the welding and squareness make it somewhat unusable, but being a recycler I cannot bring myself to throw it out.
    cheers

    Sweet saw Craig. Congratulations on your choice. It's sure to treat you well. Bet your chomping at the bits to test drive it

    I am really itchy to run some wood through it!!

    Hopefully today...we will see...

    Rob-
    I will not be throwing away the shipping cage mine came in. It is a good heighth for an impromptu work bench. Thats what I used it for when assembling the saw. For now its on the side of my house since I have no room in my garage. I just might attach some plywood on the top just for that.

    I also just talked to the nice people at Steel City. The recommended I loosen the 4 bolts that hold it to the center section, get the rear one flush, and tighten it. Then push either up or down on the extension, get it flush and tighten that one then do that to the remaining bolts. He said they do this on most of theirs at the showroom. He also said that on the Deltas there is only 3 bolts making it more difficult. Nice they improved on the design.
    He said that the extension will flex/bend a bit allowing it to become flush if their procedure is followed.
