    JR that is a terrific, versatile setup you have! My son's been wanting to do something like this with all the toys in one place. The thing I noticed was the PE or UHMW rails added to your fence. Pretty Slick to say the least. Great build and beautiful craftsmanship...Thanks once again for your wonderful & prolific posts! ~PJ

    Not too big for a 10". I always wanted a Cabinet saw but they are so heavy. I settled for this Delta Contractors 10" and have never been disappointed. Not as heavy duty as the cabinet saws but it is a good saw for the home shop.

    Cheers, JR

    Thanks PJ. I bought the UHMW on the bay and used double sticky carpet tape to hold it on to the fences. I would use contact cement if I need to replace any of it and that is becoming necessary. The heat kills the carpet tape in time but contact cement seems to last forever at normal temperature. I have had to use the heat gun to remove it from some table tops and find that it is long lasting.

    Cheers, JR

    Thanks JR. I would think contact cement would have a hard time with the UHMW...who knew?

    FIY, I got some industrial grade double sided tape a few years ago that takes the heat and has an incredible shear strength as well as thin. I'm pretty sure it is 3M and may be used in aircraft assembly. I remembered using it at work for some R&D thing for a nasty environment and tracked it down. It was about $10-$12 a roll but worth it for something like this I think. I've used it on Delrin, PE, UHMW, AL, Steel and still on most of it, although I have replaced it like you are talking about and must use a heat gun to soften it up and solvent for any residue...and still have half a roll I think. I'll get number off of it and post it for you and others. Can't remember where I got it but likely Amazon has it now. There are bonding agents for UHMW specifically but pricey.

    Again nice setup and build. Thanks for sharing. ~PJ

    JR,

    Wow, your work center would take center stage in any shop. I can see a lot of thought and talent went into making the work center and fixtures. I think you will be getting requests for more details and plans. Thank for posting.

    Regards, Paul

    P.S. I have a 9" Rockwell-Delta table saw I bought in 1968, has served me very well, and your setup would be a great addition.

    Thank you Paul, I always liked the Rockwell - Delta equipment. In our house that Dad Built in 1952 the basement had a very nice old Rockwell drill press. That was a very nice machine indeed. I actually drilled holes in lead that I melted in the drain pipe ladle that Dad used for all of our cast iron drain pipes. Yep, that is right, I drilled 3/4 or 1" holes so I could put the lead on a pipe and become Charles Atlas, at least that was my desire. I do like old machines.

    Cheers, JR
