Insert plate orientation
Going and looking at all the build pictures, I notice one thing: on most of the oblong tables, the insert plate orientation is almost always on the left, and opposite orientation to the table itself. As in, the long side of the insert plate is perpendicular to the long side of the table. On more square tables, the plate is generally in the middle, with parallel orientation.
Why the difference? I thought one might want to keep the plate oriented the same way as an oblong table on the left-hand side to help with infeed. Is this not the case? For those have not set up a combo table, why the wasted space behind the fence?
I'm going to be putting in the plate this weekend, and am looking for insight into which way I should do it.
