Rebuilding a cheap table saw part #8

Finally the rebuilding of that cheap table saw comes to it's completion. It took a few days, 120 Euro's for the saw and about 40 Euro's for the hdf and some bolts... a total of 160 Euro's for a table saw of which the saw blade, fence and miter slots are all aligned. A good adjustable and strong fence and a decent worktop. What more could you ask for.... 

The 3rd layer of the fence is glued and screwed on. 

The clamp block is glued together. 

The rod that was on the original fence from our first table saw was 70 centimeters long, it clamped at the back of the top. We had to cut it and tap new threads... 

The old handle in its new form.

The old "home made fence re-used. The little wheels are adjustable and make the fence move better....

The fence clamp mounted... 

And this is how the fence is when on the table... 

The bolt in the middle is to adjust the height of the clamping block. 

Lined up, and screwed to the base "T"

Still one thing tom do... making the insert plate.

But it looks like a real table saw....
