The idea is that you can place your plywood on the support arms and the front of the saw and be fully supported and lined up on the fence before you even turn the saw on. It’s a much easier and safer way to cut down large sheet goods. Quick and easy to make from a few scraps and a pair of cheap hinges. The arms quickly fold up and store on the wall and when needed can be installed in a few seconds. Not sure where I originally saw these from but whoever had the original idea needs a pat on the back.

Great Idea, I just wish I had all that space…. Oh the possibilities are endless.

One additional idea to prevent the leg from folding if you hit it is to add a small piece of stock to the bottom of the leg farthest from the TS saw. It will prevent the leg from just getting kicked in, as it must then lift to clear.

Made a similar setup for sheet goods. Works like a champ.

Good job Jay,
These would keep the leg in place.

Nice, also like your blade storage and various jigs. Hanging jigs are the best shop decorations :P
