    I followed the ebay guy directions on my Husky when I drilled the holes, which was a real easy job (don't let it scare you). If I had to do it over again I would have centered the table / holes around 19" (which is the max length split my stove will take) instead of whole length of the ram. It's not that big of a deal but it would have made it a little nicer.

    Ja, ditto on using oil on the bit. Slow and steady pressure is better than high speed. Drill the hole in two steps, first with a much smaller bit. After the first hole is done, bolt the table in place to locate the second hole and start the hole by drilling through the hole in the table. THis will keep the bit from "walking" off the mark. Once it is started, take the table off to drill it like you did the first hole.

    Mount the table as high as will clear and closer to the base like Scott said.

    Try taking your teeth out. :lol:

    Mud's not really a problem what with all the bark and wood chips from the bucking.
