DIGITAL ISSUE PREVIEW
I have been busy at work and my stupid nerve have slowed work down a bit but I have managed to get the ends of the skirt installed and the vices installed.
I got the wedges cut and decided to sand the points in instead of trying to cut them as i was having trouble getting them consistent.

Spent yesterday jointing, I have realized that I am really out of shape I'm beat.
I took a look at by Beaver 3800 6" and decided that the table was too short So I built some extensions. I built torsion boxes for the top with another smaller one underneath for added strength, I attached these to the table using the 3 existing 5/16 bolt holes for the beaver extensions.
