Question about Saws
Page 15 in the Product Manual Model No. 320.28160 says, "If you install a different router (one not supplied to the table), ensre that the diameter of the router sub-base does not exceed 6-7/8 inches. what does that mean? My router model # is R24012. Can I buy a part to make the table and router compatible or do I need a different router? (or table)
Brenda, They are just saying that if the router is too big, it won't fit. The sub-base is the plastic, usually black, disc on the bottom of the router. This disc is about 6 inches in diameter and about 3/16 inches thick. It is usually held onto the base of the router with three screws. The base is the big aluminum piece about the size of half a loaf of bread that has the handles and into which the router main part (the motor) slides into. For most router tables, you mount a router base (with the sub-base removed) to the underside of the table with screws. The router table becomes a giant upside-down sub-base. If your base fits, and the screw holes line up, you are good to go. However, it is very helpful to have an extra router base (without handles) to leave permanently attached to your router table so that you can easily swap the router between the table and normal use. Good luck!

all the manual says is to insert the elbow onto the tube coming from motor and then install bag onto the elbow and for maximum performance empty the bag before it gets half full. On most table saws that I work on there is no fan or anything like that to force the dust away from unit, the best way is to run a shop vac and connect to the elbow for mazimum dust removal.

Testimonial: "Thanks, that's the way it is guess I was hoping That I was missing something. Thanks again."
You have a 5/8" diameter arbor. You can use any dado blade that will fit. That said here's a few things to bear in mind.
8" diameter dado stacks are pretty standard for 10" contractor table saws. A dado stack is typically about 13/16" wide at most. It makes sense that the wider your blade is, the more power it takes to cut through the wood.
If you were to use the full width capacity of your Dado stack (13/16") a 10" diameter stack would bog down. A 8" stack has a faster rotation at the cutting edge because of its smaller radius. So, you don't bog down when you're making a wider cut if you use a smaller diameter.
If your machine was really underpowered, you could go down to a 6" stack which would cut your power requirements even more, but limits the depth of cut.
