I figured this might be a helpful topic for everyone. I got my Crossfire Pro running back in March but decided to try making some money with it in June building firepits and hand sanitizer stands… I quickly found myself wishing I had a bigger table especially moving 3/16 4x8 sheets around it would be great not to have to constantly be indexing.
I started gathering stuff for this back in august just haven’t had the time to take the machine down to do the upgrade.
I found a local shop that has a metal brake big enough to bend up a new water table 52 1/4 x 52/14. The cost was about $160… no more seem!
I was originally going to just build off the existing table but decided for a couple of reasons it would be easier to just build from the ground up. 2x2 14Gauge 96 feet Cost $282 (I have a good bit leftover)
The upper rail Is 2x2 Galvanized that was expensive since I had to buy the entire 24ft length for $130.
This is where some people might have a hard time. You need a longer lead screw cut and turned so if you dont have a Lathe you might be stuck. I uped the thickness to 1/2 so I also needed a new lead nut. You should be looking for 1/2" 5 Start.
As of this post, I have not finished the project but will keep the thread updated as I go.
