“Adding anchor bolts directly into a concrete slab is a great option if you are able to drill into the floor of your shop. You don’t need a frame, you only need 4 bolts, 4 drop in anchors and access to a hammer drill. And with the Maslow stored away and the bolts removed from the floor you don’t have to worry about running over your anchor points with your table saw, or car.”
