DIY Table Saw with Router and JoinTech Fence

Makita 2711

I  purchased this Makita 2711 for a DIY table saw and combined it with a router to save shop space.   It came with the miter fence and manual for $50.  I might also add a Jig Saw as a third tool. Here you see it after I added a 10″ blade and replaced the brushes.  At max height of 3.5″ with the 10″ blade.   Rated at 3800 rpm with a 15 amp 2.5 hp motor and an electronic brake it will work well for this project.  This DIY project includes using a JoinTech CabinetMaker System still in the shipping boxes to use on this table.  Since this JoinTech System is designed to go with a Delta tablesaw, using the Makita 2711 will be a unique challenge.
