Table saw model question

Postby Vorsalia » Tue Dec 08, 2020 11:24 am

Hi all, found this community on the search. In the model gallery, there's a model for the Delta 36-725 Table saw.

Does anyone here know if it is dimensionally accurate? As in, can I assume the dimensions are right enough to design a cabinet around & under it?

I'd like to take the bottom half of the base on mine, build a platform for it, and add in some cabinetry to house the router lift in one wing, and some storage underneath the other. Maybe work some much needed hinged outfeed/sidefeed tables into it that would store out of the way when not needed.

Assuming you have one of these saws, the best thing you can do is download it and open it in SketchUp. Then measure the important dimensions and compare them to yours. There's no requirement that models be dimensionally accurate to be uploaded to the 3D Warehouse and you often get what you pay for.

If I were in your shoes I would make my own model of the saw as part of the process of designing the cabinet for it to sit on. I would keep the saw model as simple as possible and only include important details. It wouldn't even have to be identifiable as a Delta contractors saw. Simple boxes will do the job.
