So, here we go. This is the back. It is almost ok...The triangulated area is to support the extension table. I just tossed the jack screw in from the grizzly table to show what it will look like. The load from the table weight is transferred to the base directly below the saw. This means the total base, 5' wide can flex if floor is uneven, and it will not affect the router table height (in relation to the saw itself). IF I only used jacks straight up at the corners, if the base flexed or twisted due to floor, the table height would also change. I don't explain stuff well.. I hope it makes sense.
I want the surface to be as close as it can be... but it is not a cnc mill....
Hope to finish up prep work on the base tomorrow, prime, mount saw permanently, and start tearing up some stuff.
Background... I am a country boy. One of grandpa's jobs was a cooper. Other grandpa played with wood working too. I have done a fair amount of construction for a guy who isn't a carpenter. Buddies all in the trades, so I have a pretty varied background. I am not implying I am an expert... but I am an experienced new guy. HA
I just have more free time now days. When I work on a tool, piece of equipment, etc., I fix all of it. I don't want to have to work on anything every time I go to use it. So, for me, being picky as I say, is just a proper fix, repair, etc. It makes life easier down the road.
