    Nice! Do you have a dado blade already?

    Not for the table saw.

    I do any dado work ( frame rests ) with a dado blade on my Radial Arm saw; that way I can see what I'm doing.

    You may find it is easier to do it with 2 cuts on the table saw vs setting up the radial arm

    Nice saw!

    I picked up a used Delta cabinet saw about 20 years ago. Of course you can always spend more money on accessories but I don't expect to ever buy another table saw

    Well, if you do it with '2 cuts on the table saw' and it works for you, great.

    I prefer to have the work area facing up, just slide the end board along the fence, done.

    I'm pretty much leaving the R A set up to do the frame rest rabbets, I can do rips of sheets of plywood on saw horses with the circular saw, then do further wood-butchering on the table saw.

    Thanks
    Used it a couple hours Sunday, it is in really good shape for its age.......instruction manual was printed in mid-70's.

    I have an ancient table saw in my shed, apparently the switch went bad and there is a light switch on it, no safety features, it does work, but until I make a pusher and get a guide on it, and probably change the blade, I'm leaving it alone. I inherited it from an old friend when he could no longer use it.

    those look great, do the bottom boards come off or are permanently attached ?

    they're attached (3/4" staples)

    but I may make some either without bottoms, or with the bottoms attached by screws for easy removal.
