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.
