What is a trunnion on a band saw?
Trunnions allow the table’s axis of tilt to be aligned with the surface of the table so that the top of the table doesn’t move side-to-side with respect to the blade as it’s tilted. But if you are building this bandsaw, a temporary table is necessary so you can use the bandsaw to cut the trunnions for the actual table.
