Thanks! The leveling bolts were an after thought, creating the need for the protruding angle iron. To pretty it up I made a larger table. While milling the blade slot a clamp loosened. So, the slot has a nice gouge :-(

Nice looking stand, do you have a foot pedal for it yet? I highly recommend adding one if you haven't already.

A problem developed when I changed to a more aggressive 14 tooth blade. The leveling screws lift the table from the bumper shoe. When I tried to but a 2 1/2" round bar the saw climbed upward.


I plan to fix this with either a clamp on the handle or a spacer to keep the table in contact with the bumper shoe.

I stopped using the levelling screw on my shop made table, I found out if the table is clamped/attached directly to the sliding bumper shoe ( even though it may be slightly less than 90° to the blade), it still cuts more reliably than forcing the table to be a perfect 90°, just keeping it simple worked better for me.
