The female socket will always be on the chuck.
Have to be careful there -- Vertex (Taiwan) does indeed make nice tools, but SPI is an importer, and has since then been bought-out by MSC, and lately everything I've bought that's SPI has been Chicom. I don't necessarily have a problem with that, but the quality has been really bad -- I sent back the SPI internal spring calipers because the fingers were bent and they didn't travel even remotely parallel.

What a delightful change to see wheels mounted on to a machine safely. Too many just bung them onto the bottom lifting the C of G and reducing the stability to a 4/3 point contact. It might not look pretty,but it shurely won't fall over. Thanks kcleere.
Thanks...it was my intent from the start of the design to keep everything about that base and saw low to the ground. In fact...if you see any other Unisaw you'll see a 5" tall black plinth that acts as a sub base underneath it. I removed that and had a 1/4" AL plate made to bolt to the bottom of the saw to ensure there would be no "racking" of the cabinet with all the weight as the plinth/sub-base did provide some rigidity....I have modified just about everything in my modest shop to make it easier and safer to use while sitting in a wheelchair. I really enjoy working with the Faztek and 8020 Extrusion as well.
