Late introduction & advice

Hi All, I'm doing this kind of backwards as I posted a thread about using old timbers before I actually introduced myself, story of my life. Anyhow I'm pretty excited as I finally got my table saw set up the way I want except for dust collection/control. (Awesome saw I got from a great guy on craigslist who gave me a great deal). Moving along you'll see in the pictures that the back of the saw is open I figure I could just use hard board or card board but wondered if anyone has a design already in use for a set up like mine. I want to keep it simple as complex additions tend to bog me down (I know I've got issues). I just want to start making cuts. Thanks in advance! Just a call me backwards Jeff

There's an article on that, and many other things too, in Tauntons "Working With Table Saws"

Well then, back'ards...welcome! That's pretty much the same setup I have, but mine is mobile. The contractor saws are pretty neat. Mine's a -441B, last one built in the states.

Thanks for the welcomes and advice guys.

SteveEl I'll look for that Taunton's book at the library.

Mickit I was alittle disappointed to find out this saw was not US made as well as to hear Delta was just sold to a Chinese company. Anyhow when i bought the saw it had no support between the legs, so I added all the bracing & castors which I hoped I could would level the whole thing but also found that even with rubber feet the table moved (rookie move I know) so I added the blocking under the feet. AnywayI can't wait to make some real cuts!
