Roger Tulk “I notice that the grooves for the miter thingy appear in some photos to have lugs on them that prevent using some feather-boards and other miter thingies. I associate this with cheaper table saws”
Roger are you talking about cast iron tables with the upside down T shaped bottoms of the miter slots? Or are you looking at aluminum topped table-saws with the with the lugs cast into the top edges of the shallow miter slots that help hold the miter-gauge in the slot?
