Starting a new thread on my removable front extension table for the SO3. The picture is from my stock SO3 prior to my XXL upgrade. I also modified the straps to allow for a replaceable 3/4" bed to minimize the amount of Z travel lost. Concept is that you can change out job specific spoilboards without losing square or reference on the machine.
3/4" MDF with 1/4-20 threaded inserts every 1.5" and alternating 8mm dowel holes centered. I.E. 1.5" centers from 8 mm dowel hole to 1/4-20 threaded insert.
Front table is rabbeted for tight joint over the frame. Fences hold the extension table flush with the bed.
Same concept for my XXL upgrade to allow full work area when needed.
I’ve been contemplating offering a kit for the stock SO3 with my table mods. If there is enough interest I would consider producing them.
