Both of the tables that Ken posted are great. But i have a problem with them and MY contractor saw.
I built a fold up table very simular to the one in the photo … I was very happy.
Then I had a project that needed a 45 degree crosscut.
As I eyeballed the Wixley angle gauge and turned the hand wheel, it got really hard to turn … What the …
Then I noticed that the motor also turned hitting the table and not allowing me to go to a 45.
Now, see me disassemble the outfeed table that I’m so proud of … without a smile on my face. ... I was sad.
I later remade the table with 4 legs, 1/4 inch carrage bolts at the bottom for adjustment, and when I need a 45 I pull the table away from the saw.
Something to consider before you decide.
