    Why do you want to make them? What happened to the originals?
    It is much easier to just buy them from RBI. They are pre drilled and nicely powder coated.

    You could also build a sturdy table to put the saw on.

    I would be happy to send you the dimensions and pictures of my RBI G4 legs assuming they would fit your model saw.

      Legs for RBI older Hawk saw

      Hi I won this saw off of A auction site and it came from pawn stop it had no legs with it. That is why there is no legs. i wish it had come with legs. would you please send me the size and info on your Hawk legs. And pictures if you have any. So My Husband can check out the specs. Yes my saw has the square holes in the sides for the legs to be bolted on. My Hawk is a 1985 year model 220-3 Thank you. email address [email protected]

          Seems to me you should go to the RBI site and check out the legs available for your saw before you make your own. The site is http://www.rbiwoodtools.com . If nothing else, you can get the dimensions correct. Just a suggestion.

            Just for fun I called RBI and asked them about the legs for that model.
            They don't have or make those leggs anymore "those leggs were made with 14 gauge steel (.078") the new legs are made from 10 gauge (.140") "
            It is nice to know that they continue to improve their product. It also explains why my saw is so heavy. Using the newer leggs may require drilling some holes.

              Good on ya Deb. If that was the one on eBay, I was looking at that too. It looked in really good shape.

              You can build your own bench using these plans..

              I made it using some pretty crude tools so you shouldn't have any trouble. Here is how my bench turned out.

                If my saws didn't already have legs I would certainly consider building that table. It has a lot of nice features. There is plenty of room to build in blade storage.

                  The thing I like about it is that you can use any standard chair. I just have a folding chair that works great. The thngs that should be changed is to make the table top extend forward about 6 inches so there is room for your knees. Otherwise you are hunching over to saw. Also I haven't found a need for the tilt feature. If I make another one, which I probably will, I'll make it non-tilting.

                    He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                    Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                    I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                    You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
