I bought this a couple of years ago. It is a good machine but I am unhappy with two aspects which I would like to modify if someone can help me please.
Firstly the mitre gauge that attaches to the sliding table is slow to take on / off and very fiddly to get accurate. I have built a cross cut sled, but don't like it because (1) it won't work with the crown guard in place so risky (2) it takes up too much space when off (3) only works for 90 degrees! unless you make more for different angles (4) dust flies everywhere. So I would like to be able to cross cut & mitre very accurately with very little set up each time and with crown guard in place & good dust extraction.
Secondly the dust collection is poor, possibly because the "cabinet" is a large space with the motor etc only taking up a small part of the area. Also some of the extractor airflow is directed to the crown guard. So this needs improvement.
Has anybody successfully overcome these difficulties please?
