Looking through some of my Facebook albums today, I realized that I never shared by S03 build log here, and as this thread has become something of a log of my experiences with the machine, I figured it wouldn't hurt to post them here.
Most of these aren't going to be anything new to anyone who owns the machine...
The contents (the preassembled plates made assembly much quicker than I thought it would be when I ordered it) plus a DeWalt 611 trim router:
The assembly and instruction printouts:
Wiring (which is nothing more complicated than plugging connectors onto the correct pins):
At this point I realized that I would need somewhere to put it besides my dining room table, and I had seen Jeff Ferguson's youtube videos of the cabinet he built, so I purchased the plans he offered here:
...and set out to build one from Birch ply:
Building the torsion box top:
Putting together the slats and cabinet sides. I know, my side grain is running horizontally... I figured it was just a work cabinet and this way it would require less sheets of plywood.
Full extension, 100lb. drawer slides (the smaller drawers are also soft close):
Pretty much all pocket hole screws makes things go together rather fast:
Putting together some dust collection. 16 gallon Craftsman vac with a 1 micron filter, a dust deputy cone, and a small 14 gallon HDPE drum.
