"Hi Luke. To cap it off I just meant to glue on a strip of hardwood to cover the plywood edge is all. I can't wait to see what you end up with. PS-- That's way better than what I have. My saw sets on an old rolling tool cart my FIL gave…"

"Luke,  You can either fasten the fence section from the bottom or if you want you make an L shaped piece so that you can screw that directly to the table top.  I know its not the easiest to screw from the bottom up into a vertical piece…"

"Thanks KregCS. I think I get it. And I'm sure it will make more sense once it's right in front of me. I just need to be a little patient. So basically I just need some 3/4" MDF or something similar and a way to fasten it to the table.…"

"Luke,  The issue is that every saw is going to have different measurements so its hard to give you an exact plan for your saw.  If you look in the instructions for the KMS8000, on the last page in the bottom left corner there is a sample…"

"Glen, Thank you very much for taking the time to respond. Yes everything thing is level and pretty solid. InLike the idea of making it more solid and adding 3/4" ply to the back. But I don't think I am understanding everything completely.…"

Glen S replied to Luke Troughton's discussion 'Kreg Kms 8000 track and stop kit'
"Nice. Is your stand level & solid? I would plywood the back with 3/4" ply to keep it rigid. Run the ply 4" up above the table & cap it off with a strip of hardwood. You can mount everything to the ply wood solidly."

Kreg Kms 8000 track and stop kit

Hello All,I am seeking some guidance. I just finished building my Miter Saw station and purchased the Kreg KMS 8000 track and stop kit. I should have the kit by the end of the week and was hoping to get a jump start on building the fence that the kit will attach to. I looked at the manual on line and I am completely lost. Is there anyway someone could send me some dummy proof plans? In theory i wouldn't think it would be that difficult. I am very good at looking at a set of plans and building…See More

"I use the 1/2" overlay Blum soft close hinges in all the cabinets that I build.  The only other thing you want to get is a self centering drill bit and make sure you square the hinges to the door."

Help with Hinges

Hey guys so I tried to figure this one out on my own and I think I am there but just want to confirm. I am having my cabinets refinished and while everything was off I wanted to upgrade to concealed self closing hinges. No big deal right? Wrong. Apparently there is a vast selection of different hinges and I need the exact type to fit my cabinet. So I now know I have face frame full overlay style cabinets so I know which type of hinge I need to get. My question is i want something that will…See More

Added bonus when I bought my house was the air compressor in the basement with a line out to the garage. I never would have put one in. To many other higher priorities. But now that I have it I don't know how I ever lived with out it.
