'Ol Dave's Table Saw
Well, here it is.....a home-made conglomeration of an older Rockwell Model 4-345 contractor's saw, a shop  built cabinet made from a plan that I obtained from the Internet and a Powermatic Model 66-TA Accu-Fence® system that I acquired and some polyurethane cabinet wheels with two way locks.  What do you think?  I need to tell you that the saw is dead on accurate making cuts but although the power is adequate, it is definitely a little under powered.  However, it will do until I can afford to upgrade the saw.  If and when I do, it is going to be hard for me to give up the Accu-Fence® system.  Hummm...............maybe the new saw will be a brand new Powermatic.

The cabinet is designed with a center door and a slide out frame inside the cabinet at that location that supports a kitchen waste basket sized (13 gallon) reinforced plastic bag.  Not exactly a totally dust free collection system but it works fairly well, especially considering the Jet Air Filtration Unit sits directly over head (not visible in this photo).

The cabinet has four various sized drawers on either side of the center door and has a compartment on both sides at the rear containing adjustable shelves.  Lots of storage area for blades, zero clearance blade inserts, blade wrenches, push sticks and whatever else I can find that "needs a home".
