how to install T track on Saw table that does not have Mitre groove?

by Jeff Barnhart Last activity date:
August 1st, 2012

I have a Ryobi BTS211 Portable 10" saw. has a totally differetnt mitre assembly than most table saws. Below is link to parts. Unfortunately there is no picture of the table but there is of the Mitre table and Mitre Assembly.

Items: A16, A34, & B800. To see the table you would have to back up to the BTS21 which is a little different but the Mitre and table are the same on both.


Since you challenged me to ask a question, now I have. Do you have an answer on how to add a T track to this saw table?

That I most certainly will do Sam. once I come up with how to attach the rail on the table. Since it won't be too critical about mounting it to table other than parallel to blade have thought of drilling holes in table and using role pins in the bar. Three at least for stability but may go with four.

Thank you for the update Jeffrey. I am glad you have figured out how to make that work for you.

I realize that many people have space limitations and I would like it very much if you would send me some pictures of your final solution. And if you do not mind to share it will others.

Sam A. I do believe I have come up with a solution to my problem. Will take some modifications to table saw and jigs I use on it but I think that this should work. Here is what I plan on doing. mounting a mitre bar on the table on the rip fence side that can be easily removed. then on the jigs mount a mitre rail. That should work. I just need to figure the best way to mount the rail for minimal effort to mount and unmount.

Regards, JB.

Thank you for your answer Sam, it is about what I expecte. What I get for buying that type of saw but because of space limitations that works great into my garage layout. Can fold it up and move it out of way when not using it, same with tool box, router table and table for Mitre saw and band saw. I was hoping there might be something and wouldn't know if I didn't ask. I have figured out how to mount feather board on sliding mitre table using the key hole slot and carriage bolt. Make my own feather boards so I can modify at will. If I figure out something on the mitre track/T track I wll let you know. Oh, double thanks for the instructions for the guide for the router, see al sort of possibilities for it now. regards.

Thank you for your question as to whether you can have a T slot miter groove on the saw table.

Because of the design of a sliding table on the left side of the saw table and having a key hole slot for the miter gauge I see no way of putting in a T slot miter guide in the table of a preformed metal table top on the right and a sliding table on the left.

There would have to be some after market accessory that replaces the slide table with a different design that would replace the key whole groove in the table.

I do not personally know of such an accessory. I believe you would have to replace the whole table top with a home made device that you could install T slot miter grooves in to that table top and then mount it to the base on the saw chassis. I do not think that it would be cost affective

I am sorry that I could not help you with this request.

I guess I stumped the experts. haven't gotten any answers and only respone is a safety link on using a table saw. Considering I have been using power tools and saws for over 50yrs it was unnecessary.
