Larry, do you remember my set up when you were here last year? This is the overall view from the end of the extension table, and a closer view of the mount. The steel tube slides up into the attic to gain as much space as possible if I need to cut something tall. I think I get a little over 2' clearance. Could get more if the pitch on the roof was a little steeper. The 2 oak arms are a rear and a side stabilizer mount.
These are 2 views of the pick up head. Note: this is the original pick up head for the Ridgid saw...I rebuilt it to be long enough to encompass the riving knife on the Grizzly saw, which is shown in the first picture above. I got the plans here: http://www.woodcentral.com/bparticle...m_guard3.shtml It works very well. If I was to do it again, I'd either use steel or steel angle, for the articulating arm or aluminum angle material, instead of the flat aluminum I used to keep deflection down to a minimum. But it works great. I cut a full sheet of 3/4" ply into 4 1/4" and 2 3/4" strips yesterday, and had very little on top of the wood or saw. Maybe 10 small specks. Jim.
