it's not my idea, i copied the basic idea the best i could from poor pics on a ebay listing, they sell for $75.00, i made mine out of scrap steel i had laying around, you remove the material guide on the saw 2 allen screws and slide the saw on the table reinstall the two screws, and yes it is quite stable and quick and easy to convert back to portaband heres a better pic of the table and connection point, the screws are contersunk for a flat table the table size is 6'' x 8'' any more questions feel free to ask.. bruce
