Yup Jerry it does, but it's minor. If I was doing a through mortice I would go a little undersized and finish it with a chisel or a file. But for plain old mortice and tennons this machine is the berries!Greg,
In the last picture, I see what looks like the bit is leaving round bulges on the square hole. Drilling holes for what the machine is designed for is not an issue, but if you ever want to use the square hole as a feature, those bulges can and will be a distraction. I'll have to look around for a piece I did to show what I mean later today, if I still have it...... Jerry (in Tucson)
I got the levelers off Amazon, it's actually 2 parts, the levelers themselves and the mounting brackets.Looks great. Those have got to be some of the most serious levelers I've ever seen, outside of heavy machinery. Where'd you get them?
Going to make one suggestion. The formica on top is a completely impermeable surface. Leaving the underside uncovered/uncoated, it can absorb and release moisture that the top side now can't, causing the plywood deck to warp/cup, even with the skirting and supports. I'd recommend at least coating it with poly or something to even out between the top and bottom, so there isn't a tug of war going on every time the moisture changes in the room.
Thanks so much for the very thorough tutorial! Two questions, first, what router bit did you use to make the miter slots on the outfeed table, and second, how did you attach the Maple spacer to the Table Saw? Thanks! ChuckNow that the fence is back on I can use it to lay out for the miter slots.

Made the slots nice and wide so saw dust won't plug them up.

Then I made a router guide out of a piece of 1/4" tempered hard board and some plywood scraps. I just used CA glue to make it, quick and easy.
So here it is clamped on and ready to go.

I plowed it out in 4 passes.

It came out pretty good, it's about 1/2" deep

1 done and 1 to go.

Both done. Then I sanded all the edges with some 220.

Then I added this maple spacer to the old table bracket, this will keep the table the proper space away from the saw so it won't interfere with the fence.

And with the table right up against it.

The table is not attached to the saw, between its weight and the rubber leveling feet I don't think it's going to move. I can always put a couple screws in it later if I need to.
