Radial Arm/Miter Station 2

Well, I did some work on the radial arm/miter station the past couple days.  After thinking about the dust collection, I contemplated a dust hood, but opted for a down draft area.  I’ll do some sanding there anyways.  I cut a channel in the cabinets and lined it with hardboard…then, sealed it with some aluminum tape. I only use my radial arm occasionally and am going to just hook up a shop vac when I need it.

I made the same half-lap frame as before then topped that with the construction grade plywood, and then a sheet of hardboard.

I used a pegboard as a template and drilled holes along the course of the channel.  Then, pulled it up and drilled larger holes in the plywood.

Then, I installed both the radial arm and miter saw and adjusted them to be level with the support area.  Still have to order the drawer hardware and  make the drawers.  But that’s for another day.

Cheers.
