There are some fabulous examples of outfeed tables on this site and others. Most of them rely on legs or wheels for support. My problem is that my garage floor is VERY uneven. Since I move my saw around a lot, I would have to spend a lot of time leveling it to compensate. I wanted to come up with something that I wouldn’t have to keep adjusting. I decided to create one that is suspended from the rail of the fence support. Here is the saw before starting.
I created some supports from 2 pieces of 1/2 inch plywood. I glued them together and used the band saw to cut the notches. I used 2 – 1 inch rare earth magnets on each one. These hold the supports tightly against the saw base.
I then created some cross pieces for support. They were notched in both the main support and the cross pieces.
I then glued the top of the cross pieces making sure not to get any on the main supports. I wanted them attached to the top so that it could move up and down in the notches. I used 3/4 inch setscrews to level the top as seen below.
I then routed out channels to match those on the table saw top.
Here is the final product. It works great. Glad I finally got around to doing it.
Thanks for looking.
