Nope....cab mounted trunnions mount to the cabinet, which means to align the miter slots to the blade, you simply adjust the table. With table mounted trunnion, you need to loosen them, and coax them with force to move a fraction of an inch...controlling that fraction of an inch is a challenge, plus the physics make it awkward.I thought the trunions of a cabinet saw were mount to the table also? Does lighter weight construction only mean more vibrations, or does it affect the accuracy of the cut (I guess that viration too)?
Correct. Here's a pretty typical older style contractor saw with the outboard motor mount....it just happens to be a Delta, but is typical of older Jet, GI, Bridgewood, PM, King, AFF, Ohio Forge, Grizzly, and many others:I guess contractor saws are table mounted too. I guess I got a little confused. Thanks for the education.
While cabinet saws are more robust than contractor saws and most hybrids, cabinet saws are not necessary for fine carpentry/cabinetry. And contractor and hybrids, properly set up, will balance a nickel just as well as a cabinet saw will.I guess contractor saws are table mounted too. I guess I got a little confused.
