Thread: Mobile tablesaw base

    Mobile tablesaw base

    Well this past sunday evening I finally had enough and I got around to designing and cutting out a mobile base for my ts3650. I've been wanting to do this for some time and when I had some recent car repairs to do and had to move the saw I realized I needed to get this done.

    I built it so that the cast iron top sits right on the top of the router cabinet with the saw cabinet sitting flat on the lower cabinet. This is now the flatest the top of the saw has ever been To keep it from sagging in the front I used a piece of 3" x 4" steel tubing I had laying around that I was saving for this.

    I reused the connection for the dust collection from the old setup to make it easier to attach the 90.

    And this is how I enclosed under the saw for dust collection. Just remove 9 screws and it comes out to access the underside of the saw.

    I still need to figure out how I want to do the dust collection for the router under in the cabinet and exactly how I want to store my saw and router related items.

    Very nice!

    I don't remember what your old setup looked like, but that looks like it should work out very well. I really like the idea of combining the router table and table saw into one unit like that...

    Guess I should have taken some before shots. Just your standard contractor saw legs with the herculift and the router in the right extention wing with no provision for dust collection.

    Well, you could put it back to the way it was and take some pics

    Nice looking set up, I'm sure it will make your saw better to use in every way except portability, which is not a big deal is it

    Looks like a Win-Win to me!

    Nice job Alan.

    Is your outfeed table stand-alone?

    You killed it.

    That looks like a nice set up.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Probably kinda sorta like this...



    The cabinet idea looks like a good one, Alan. I know at the heart of it you've got a good saw. I also like the cover plate you made for the back where the belt enters the saw cabinet. I bodged together something out of magnetic sign material for mine when I enclosed the bottom for dust collection, but yours looks a lot more "DC-tight". Now all you need to add is the Incra setup and you'd be golden.

    Actually, "DC Tight" may now work as well, when I did a similar thing to my old DeWalt portable saw, I made it too tight and the DC did not suck at all, I was also using a zero clearance insert, shopmade, and there just wasn't enough airflow.

    Just saying
