Using a different bench table saw?

Post by dmg » Thu Oct 21, 2021 4:25 am

Dear Suso,

how difficult do you think it would be to adapt the plans to a different table saw? I have a Bosch 4100 and it has a very different base profile and size than the Dewalt that you used.

thank you,

hi mate,

It's possible to install other bench table saws in this workbench. How hard it will be depends on how different the new table saw is and how experienced you are in woodworking. Here you'll find a new article in my blog explaining this topic.

thank you for your reply.

The main reason for my question is that I am worried that it might be difficult to adapt the plans you sell to another table saw, and that the length of many parts would have to be adjusted by hand.

I have studied your design and there are some small differences that would need to be made, nothing major. I think the basic design would remain the same. The length, height and width of the space for the table saw would have to be adjusted. Also, the bottom of the left hand side of the table saw protrudes more than the top, so that will have to be taken into consideration when doing the top slider.

I don't have experience with sketchup and I don't know how easy it would be to make that adaptation. Do you have any insights on this?

hi again!

It is not easy to modify the design in SketchUp if you do not have experience using the program. Anyway, it is easy to vary the size of the affected pieces with the cutting list in hand.

I have the DWE7491 which is quite similar to the DWE7492. Would I need to make adjustments to the overall size of the space for the table saw? I know that the surface space is larger on the 7491 so I will need to make adjustments for that. I'm just wondering if anyone has made this table in the past with this particular saw.
