    It's sad to hear that folks have troubles with the short fence for those machines to hold accurate settings. The one I have (different brand) is rock solid and even indexed with detents for common angles including 90.

    It’s been a busy fall. Here’s a lofting table in the shop basement, with the lines for a new whitewater dory.

    and some Meranti hydrotek marine plywood I picked up in Denver.

    I decided to keep my PM66, mainly for the long gunwale and chine rips plus maybe for dados.

    Very nice you were able to height match the PM66 to the slider...it fits in there great for both its own utility and for the very solid additional support surface it provides past the blade on the slider to the right. Nice arrangement!

    Yeah, that is a work of art from a shop layout perspective. ive seen the same layout a few times in smaller pro shops. Usually the 66 has a power feeder. Im impressed by the tight tolerances you achieve with the stroke of the sliding table(looks very consistent in its parallel travel to the 66) and the height of both machines. Your floor must be in considerably better shape than my own!

    I keep tossing and turning on the purchase of a wadkin pkf. I need a third table saw in a 800 sqft shop like i need a hole in my head, but i could fit it in the outfeed of my KF700 like you did and i really wouldnt lose much space. I have a power feeder and tilting bracket on my machine, however.
