Subject: Smart Table on Ridgid MS-UV April 16th 2009, 2:00 pm
Since I find myself checking this forum a couple of times a day I thought I should at least contribute something. I just got done mounting my Smart Table on my Ridgid MS-UV and thought I would share some pictures. I remember seeing a Power Bench mounted to a MS-UV over on SMC but donít think I have ever seen a Smart Table on a MS-UV. Overall the install went real well. I had to mount the table on some 2 by 3 and 2 by 4 blocks to clear the MS-UV table extensions and give clearance to access the release handle that is used to raise the MS-UV. I screwed the top to the blocks, drilled through the table and the blocking and had to counter sink the bolds in the table to allow the end tracks to spin.
While I am very happy with the install there are a few issues I may try and address at a later date. The first issue is that I had to slide the table up a few inches to clear the wheels and give access to the MS-UV release handle (when the MS-UV is in the closed position). I may try to trim the Smart Table so I could slide it down between the wheels (when the MS-UV is closed). The second issue is that I didnít want to drill more holes into the MS-UV top (mainly just because I am lazy) so to line up the existing holes on one end I had to mount two bolt under a Smart Table track. When I want to take the Smart Table off and remount my miter saw I have to pull a rail off and it would be easier if I could remove the bolt without having to pull a rail off. The last issue isnít really issue for me but might be an issue for others. The table is a bit high, with the sacrificial wood being 39Ē high. At 6í 4Ē I like a high table but this may be too high for some.
