Shopsmith Hack #2: A More Stable Table!

A new Shopsmith Hack from Chip's Wood Shop- a more stable table!  I have been using this brace on my table for a few months now.  After a few minor tweaks, I have published a "how-to", complete with drawings, photos and a video in which I demonstrate the effectiveness of the brace by measuring the deflection I get in the table before and after applying the brace.
Some key benefits of this design include:

  • Easy to lock and release - two nuts that can be turned with a single wrench from where you stand to use the saw.
  • Automatically adjusts to any position you use the table, including tilted 90 degrees for the drill press.
  • Out of the way when you don't need it.

  1. All of us purchased several Brantford items as well as crp adirondack chairs for that patio along with the pool region two months ago. The conventional is actually exceptional! We have found the furnishings very easy to keep thoroughly clean. CR plastic was fantastic to utilize. All of us highly recommend CR plastic material item!
