Description:
An adjustable tool station is disclosed which includes a subframe, a table portion rotatably attached to the subframe, wherein the table portion includes an upper surface defining a work support plane, a tool mounted to the table portion, and a fence fixed to the subframe and extending above the work support plane, wherein the fence includes a first side and a second, opposite side. The first side constitutes a workpiece guide surface, and defines a workpiece guide area which includes all points which are closer to the first side than the second side. All portions of the subframe located within the workpiece guide area are located below the work support plane. Additionally, the subframe includes a wear ring which is fixed to the base portion between the table portion and the base portion, the wear ring having at least three arcuate wear zones. At least three pads are provided on an underside of the table portion, each wear pad having a contact point that contacts a corresponding wear zone on the wear ring to locate the work support plane in a position generally perpendicular to the workpiece guide surface.
