    actually ,it is very comfortable,and privides an arm rest ,but then I'm sitting rolled up to the saw ,it is fit to me ,it is only 3 1/2",I doubt your body is touching the edge of the saw table now ,but then I could be wrong ,I am not a very robust person ,you ,like me would have to fit it to you comfort level ,body size ,height of saw and what your sitting on will play a key role , I took ,a pc. of card board ,taped it on to the table ,took a compass set it to 3 1/2 " followed the conture of the table underneith scribed a line ,flipped it over,cut it w/ a razor mounted it back on w/taped and checked it for fit, sight and comfort you can do the same thing ,you may only want 2" I can't be sure ,but thats what I DID! By the way it is lower by 5/16 ' then the table top so there is no conflict plenty of clearance at least for me.

    Although the catch tray is nice to catch pieces, I think it would really bother me having to sit further back from the blade. Just going by your pictures, it seems that you would really have to stretch over the tray to see what you're cutting, especially if you're doing something detailed. I think thats the reason why scroll saws have tables only up to a certain size and the Dewalt is probably the largest. How is your comfort level and visability with the tray on compared to it being off?

    Arm rest & catch tray for cut-outs

    Rolf, That ring configuration ,is mainly a catch tray for cut-outs from serious fret work ,or keepers for Intarsia ,My saw table is slanted ,and smooth as a babies butt ,I lowered the stand to accomidate my arm chair , it's on wheels anything on the floor ,wood chips small pcs. that fell off the saw raise havoc with wheels ,proto type [info exchange] did not stop all foreign objects from making it to the floors.After ,the change stopped that , I discovered how handy it was for an arm rest ,which needed to be braced ,rather than prostiture the clean smooth easy to remove design,I decided to combine deviders into braces ,to serve dual purposes .again because of the tilt .It however, is separate and is not part of the manifold vac system.therefore not required,if you don't mind chasing chips and things. I can take it off and take a picture for you if you want! I do have to tell you it is Sweet !

    My very Best !

    know,do not want to tie up this forum ,not much interest shown here ,Have you tried the magnet tip yet,I will be happy to answer any questions you have, There in no reason this system could not work on other brand saws.

    Too funny Scott!

    Rest assured however that I have already purchased a good quality faceshield and have an ample supply of dust masks as well!

    Thanks for the advice!...

    Giraffe sold at charity auction
    by vgraf

    I recently donated this giraffe puzzle to an online charity auction for Hospital Lumiere in Haiti. This hospital is operated by our church's international relief organization and they hold this auction/fund raiser each year.

    It was hilarious watching the bidding for this puzzle....

    DANGER....DANGER....DANGER wood turning is a vortex what sucks people into the darkness that few ever return from. After all where else do you take a round tree, cut a chunk from it, and make it round again. Just not natural. Make sure you get a good face shield and you use it....
