I know Leo made leg extenders for his machine to get the table at a height he likes. I'd like to make my cabinet the right height to begin with. And I know we had a discussion a long time ago about the composition of the table. But I still have questions.
So the base is made up of the 8040 extrusions. I like the idea of t-slots for work hold downs but into what kind of material? I have a sheet of 3/4" HDPE that is big enough, but maybe that stuff is too slippery. Leo said his table has some sort of rubber surface. I remember that fine sawdust made the table even more slippery which can made holding work down interesting.
And should there be a piece of say 1/2"-3/4" MDF (or BB plywood) between the extrusions and the hold down sheet for maybe rigidity's sake?
I need to make this decision now because I have to calculate the height of the lathe table so the lathe is neither too low or too high. That surface fits into a dado on a vertical divider and needs to be milled before construction.
Stuck here until I make a decision.
And now I am thinking about a vacuum table inserted in here someplace.
