A need for out-feedI have tried using out feed rollers and various stands for some time and have never been satisfied with the results, especially when cutting large sheet goods on the table saw. For reasons including safety and quality of cut, I decided that I needed an out feed table system. Primary ConcernFor my garage workshop I needed a solution that was easily stored out of the way quickly with minimal storage space. I patterned the out-feed table on a design by Dwayne Intveld in t...
Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #9: Overall impressions of my Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench
I have to say I’m very pleased with the UHWB. I started work on it a few months ago and it’s been usable for the last month and a half. These last two weeks on Christmas vacation gave me time to really focus and get it finished. After way too many years of makeshift garage workshops in rented houses, it feels great to have an organized workspace that I know I can take with me almost anywhere. I built a small bookcase for my wife’s craft room and it went very smoothly. Her...
This view shows the back side of my recently refurbished TS. There are ~46” between the saw and my primary work bench. I lowered the bench to match the height of the TS @ 32-7/8” and planned to bridge the two with an outfeed table…. but I wanted to do something different with it. Since I have two 4” DC lines running back there, I figured this would be a great place for a down draft table. Here’s the preliminary design… To maximize air flo...
For a while now (since June when my wife and I ripped out the powder bath vanity and put in the garage) I’ve been kicking around the idea of making a miter saw station. I had planned to put it on wheels to allow me to move it around the garage and out of the way when not in use. Then my father-in-law gave me his router table….and the idea got a little more complicated and took a nagging position at the back of my mind for months. I kept coming back to it and kept coming up em...
Greetings, fellow LJs. I have a puzzle that needs a solution. I built a workbench that I particularly want to roll into place for TS outfeed. I hope to soon delineate the steps taken and justify decisions to help the next guy not do so much planning. The “opportunity” before me goes like this: I have a very nice solid core door for the workbench top and a piece of hardboard for the sacrificial top. After reading the “two-sided tape” tip several times, I bought a roll. ...
I have had some interest from a few L J’s on a TS feature built into My saw’s fence extension rail. One Member suggested that I put together some details and pics and enter it as a Blog, so here it is. This is My first Blog, so I hope I can make sense of this simple but useful TS fixture. It consists of a few easily fabricated pieces that can be be put together with very little difficulty and can be adapted to most TS’s with hollow extension fence rails ! The main beam th...
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 ...
After being on order for 3 weeks I finally received my PCS 1.75 SawStop with 52” Rails (Gloat) last week. I guess the wait was not that bead because I was able to research, plan and purchase the accessories I wanted to use. As stated by others the package was excellent. I did have some trouble installing the front fence tube but a quick call to SS (In which they answered the phone with a real person) resolved the issue. A change in the way you square it and tighten it to the rail was all that...
Hello All, This is my first post asking for help. I have been looking at the site since November and was finally able to join the site. I am very impressed with all the information that you have on here and look forward to learning and sharing. I am trying to build an outfeed table for my Craftsman table saw (21828). It is nice having a new saw but like my old table top saw the need for the outfeed is huge. I have started by cutting a 4’X4’ table out of Melamine and 3/4...
I’ve been sick of using the 12” wide outfeed roller stand for over a year now so I’m finally making a fold down outfeed table that’ll only add about an inch to the depth of my saw cabinet when the table is folded down. Here’s my cabinet before the addition…. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27579 I had to take a different approach and make a frame attached to my cabinet and the cast iron wing of the saw. After attaching the support arms I added a coup...
