Outfeed Table

I made this outfeed table about a year ago for my Delta saw. It gives me an extra 18”x 38”. It’s attached in the back with fold down brackets that will support 750 lbs. As you can see with the width of the table going nearly the width of the shop, space is a premium. When I’m done, I just fold it down and push it against the wall. In the front is an infeed that slides in the front rail and tightens with two knobs. This gives me another 12” in the front. I’m not sure what I ever did without them. They’re not the prettiest things, but have been very handy. Thanks for looking.

Sounds like something our wives would say about us!

Great use of efficiency on the table Brad.

Thanks a lot LJ’s! Sorry Kerf, that’s the only pic I have. Here is the link for the brackets though. Yeah, you’re right about it should come with the saw, or at least be an option. It’s so easy to do too. It sure beats pulling out the roller stands everytime and getting them the right height etc.

You did a great job. Looks like you have a narrow shop like I do.

Thanks a lot LJ’s! Yeah, C Master, my shop at work is tiny. It’s about 200 sq ft give or take. And it’s shaped like a “T” which makes it worse. I used to be stuck in a hallway, so it is an improvement.

Brad, that is a nice addition to your saw. It really improves the safety of the saw when handling long pieces or sheet goods. It is a vast improvement over using a roller stand.

I’d love to do that with my rigid saw. how did you bolt the brackets on? I worry about the metal skirt just not haveing enough strength to hold the table up, especially under a load. Very nice project!

Thanks again guys. Justin-I used a piece of 3/4” ply that stretches the width of the back so that the corners are supporting it as well. I drilled holes through the ply and tablesaw and attached using 6 1-1/2” bolts with washers and locknuts. The brackets are screwed into the ply and there is a 2×4 attached to the top of each bracket to make up for the offset of the table top and to bring level.

Nice work on the saw upgrades Brad,looks like they make operations on the saw that much easier and safer. I added an attached out feed to My saw and I use a table station pass that. Like You I have grown very fond of these upgrades. Once again nice work.
