" cleats " under the top would not work well with the stock side plates I think, it would mess up the 45 deg.thing, I ran that also in my head and played with it..I think it would work if the side plates on the side where bigger (taller) you could make the slots in the plates longer but it would only add about a 1/4" or so.
I have some inserts with ears on them( Tinnerman type) I was going to try to screw them to the under side of the top but it would still mess up the 45 deg. thing...
I guess it's a re invent the wheel thing with bigger plates..
and lift the cabinet/box off the work bench by 2" or more so they have the room to drop down, see picture of the table with the stock plates in place they are right at the bottom of the cabinet/box.
I should say I don't have that error I have the table in a work shop tool kart with the room to drop the plates down..
I guess I should also say not to happy with the tee track, has a small dent on one end from the shipper, it's fine but I will need to sand it clean so I can use it without hanging up the sled that I use from time to time...
I took off the NASTY metric 6mm knobs and made my own in the SAE way (1/4-20 ) and to add a little bit of JAZZ to the jig. http://www.routerforums.com/project-...th-worlds.html
Talk about " cleats " I'm going to remove the threaded inserts I put in and put in some shop made barrel/furniture nuts,, just more meat to hold on to in the PB stock. http://www.alibaba.com/showroom/barr...furniture.html
How would the geometry, ie pivot point relative to the quadrants, be affected if the threaded inserts were installed below the original table into a beefier applied cleat?
I suspect that 45 degree might be affected.
