I've decided to opt out of the countersunk fasteners. That top plate is only 0.1" thick and would be hard to put those in. I'll drill holes thru and make some studs sticking down. I'll weld them in and grind the area smooth. Should work okay.

Are you going to make a stud holder to hold the studs while welding it or do you have nerves of steel?

No stud holder!

 

He has nerves of steel!

Ubetcha!

 

Really, I'm going to thread the 0.1" and screw it in leaving it just shy of the top! That should hold it for welding.

No tilt! Just a straight cut for smaller stuff.

Tilting is todays project? It would be handy just a matter of deciding how to go about it.
I have similar saw. I made a table for my metal cutting saw and learned later many of these saws came with a table but as with many used items things get lost.

It gets real hard making it tilt, I'd end up with a huge mass of metal to make that work. The newer model table attaches different from how these old saws are made.

Your's looks simple. Did you take the side rollers off under there?

The rollers are directly under table top. These machines are still the nicest tool for clean dust free cuts of metal. Slices through 1/2" steel place easily with course blade installed. Maybe someone has a simple,, very simple solution to creating a tilting table. I have yet to come up with anything

Came up with a different idea! I know, I'm thinking again. Anyway, I remembered I had this piece laying about.

It won't work as the thick part is only 3/16" and I need 1/4" to match the plate under the table.

 

I found some strap to use. Here's how I put a 'bow' in the end.

The table works, used it to cut the pieces.

Then I decided this strap was too thick. It would make it hard to 'clip' the table on. I found some thinner metal to replace this, but the race was starting, so it'll wait until tomorrow.

Made up the clips this morning. Got them installed.

Works as it should!

Best part is I can slip the table off and still cut horizontally.

Here's another thing I made up for cutting multiple parts the same length.

All done with this!

Great work, Kenny. Looks at least as solid as the factory option, and probably better than the ones in stores today!

Nice!

I like how you made it easy to remove.  How easy is it to slide back on and off?

Not bad! I tap it on with a small hammer or piece of iron, but it's light taps.

Tight enough it doesn't move when cutting.

It must have nerves of steel as well.
