I meant the top secret cunning plan that Bob came up with that will enable Roger to shift his 600kg TS all on his own.

Well, my cunning plan worked!

Two neighbours, a mate and me, combined age of over 200, and a homemade litter, with a lot of huffing and puffing, we got it from photo 1 to photo 2!

Well, I had a free day today, so I started putting it together.

Chinese instruction manuals are not the best, but if you separate all the bits and the nuts, bolts and washers etc, they make sense.

Side panels come off for inspection, cleaning and in this case, access for bolting the upper body to the lower body.

Lets look at the the mitre gauge.

It's got the bits, the washer for the tee slot, micro-adjustable stops for common angles and the pin to lock against them.

There's a bit of lateral movement in the slot, but I think that can be removed with some tape to shim it.

The rip fence came in its own box.

With all these bits.

They fit together quite nicely, but a couple of the bolts to fix the front and back fences to the table were so close to other brackets on the upper table that knuckle scraping could have been a possibility.

And that's the rip fence done, apart from the micr-adjuster.

While I was on a roll, I decided to put the dust extractor together.

Nice - dunno why but I was expecting it to be white/grey, probably because the SIP01332 is :eusa-think: Quite like the blue!

Thanks, Gents.

Electrician's been his morning.

I'm not sure. I recognise this isn't a high end trade/industrial model, but an entry level hobby model.

I think I will send S&S an email with the photos and see what they say, but I'm not holding out much hope with my experience of them so far.

I'd be interested to know what problems you can expect from having the tables dished like that.
cheers

I suppose dishing on the extension sections are not too critical.
Are you going to buy anymore accessories?

I'm not sure what problems I can expect, it just doesn't look right when the two faces meet at the ends but not in the middle. It's possible they could mark the workplace passing over the join.

I had the same with my Fox TS, if memory serves I heated the table in the middle, gently, then jacked the middle up to take some of the bend out. That did a reasonable job but not perfect, so I then attached the extension with the lowest spot level with the main table, then used a straightedge (wide one) with heavy then medium grit paper attached to sand the cast iron down level.

Took a fair bit of work and the WIP was lost with the old Haven.

My other thought was to create a flat frame from angle iron around the perimeter of the whole table, attach some flat, straight bars to the bottom of my router and to use that as a makeshift mill to mill the table flat. I would use an old router bit and prepare for it to be wrecked, but going slowly with light passes and a router will eat up cast iron no problem.

Still not heard back from S&S about the dishing, but I suppose it is a BH weekend.

I've had a little play squaring up the plywood sheets that formed its casing and it's nice. Well, anything like this would be nicer that the Record ally table shaking all over the place.

Ian's casing looks identical, even to where holes are drilled in the body.

I think its basically the same saw with the sip obviously having very expensive paint

I think ill look at itech in future as the extra cost was not inconsequensial

although i did see the wheel kit and sliding table were more expensive on the itech which is weird

Im happy though and the motor is so silent the extractor drowns it out :)

Did they do anything about the dishing malc ?

Also on a side note im looking at a zero clearance insert plate you thought about it yet ? Existing plate is very thin though with no leveling mechanism so im coming up blank with a suitable material that does everything

They asked for photos which I’ve sent, but I’ve not heard back, so I’ll chase them up.

I haven’t thought about the insert plate yet. I’ve got other jobs on. But I did buy a couple of cheap dense plastic chopping boards a sliced them for the grooves.
