Default Complete - PBB/ Panel Crosscutter - Michael Schwartz

Here it is, the latest incarnation of the eureka-zone parts I bought a few years ago.

I built this bench to fill the role of a sliding table saw in my shop, since I simply do not have room for one. I will admit it is of limited use by design for ripping, but I primarily use my table-saw (Sawstop) for that.

The top has two fence systems, an Accusquare fence parallel to the bridge, which I cut down in length, and a squaring fence made out of a piece of fir.

The squaring fence is designed to be repositioned for less cut depth for general cutting (so I don't have to reach as far), or moved to the back if I am cutting large panels.

The bridge is intentionally close to the end for use with the SRK for routing dado's, and other joinery. A roller stand can be used to support the cutoff.

An auxiliary fence straddling the accusquare fence can be made for use close to the bridge, or as an extension so the fence reaches the entire depth of the table.

The saw I am using is the hilti 267-E with a fesstool vacuum cleaner for dust extraction.

Instead of the Accusquare fence, if I were to build this bench again I would mount an SME on the front and make a sliding t fence. The Accusquare fence was an idea I had out of laziness to not design something better.
