SAWSTOP shop-made (height-adjustment free) outfeed table

Made of scrap plywood board, 2×4, and a pair of butt hinges

The detachable legs rest on the mobile base—not on the floor—maintaining the level of the outfeed table to the saw table at all times. When not in use, the legs are tucked underneath the outfeed table for easy storage.

Alternative: Outfeed table from SawStop for about $120 Cdn (leg adjustments may be needed if the floor is not evenly flat—unless the tablesaw is positioned at the same spot all the time), like this: http://www.woodworkersemporium.com/Sawstop_OFT30-CNS-000

Chuck, great project.

I just bought a Sawstop and put it in an aftermarket base today. The saw rocks within the base. The base itself is stable. The saw has no adjustable legs. How do i prevent saw from rocking?

I have the saw stop mobile base and its rock solid. Try some shims or else return it and get the saw stop one.

Nice outfeed table.

Karl is right. Shims should work, but if you can post a picture or two, better suggestions may be possible.
If yours is the professional model, the saw is some 400 pounds and I am not sure how mobile (one direction only?) the saw is on the after-market base. I upgraded mine to the base (conversion kit) intended for the industrial model and I can almost steer mine with one hand.

Great shop project! I need to make one of these myself, and your project gives me lots of good ideas!
