    Volume 3 Advanced Electronics is now complete.

    I went ahead and installed my drag chain.

    After some break-in I will start with the Hypertherm plasma upgrade.

    Volume 5B - Basic Plasma Table (Hypertherm Edition)

    Volume 5B - Chapter 2 - Side Table Supports
    Installed.

    Volume 5B - Chapter 3 - Leveling Table Supports
    Leveled.

    Volume 5B - Chapter 4 - Center Table Support
    Installed and leveled.

    Volume 5B - Chapter 5 - Table Slats
    Installed.

    Everything went together as expected. The only thing I would add is to watch the two mounting holes on the center mounting brackets. The book has the hole locations at 5/8" from the outside edge. I think that 11/16" from the outside edge would give you a little more adjustability.
