For anyone else who may be contemplating an outfeed table for their Ridgid 4512 table saw.

I used the design from the Woodsmith Shop. Free plan at: http://www.woodsmithshop.com/media/pdf/901/SN09330_outfeed-table.pdf

To make the attachment to my Ridgid R4512 saw:

The underside of the front and back rails accommodate 5/16 T-bolts, or regular bolts.

I used bolts long enough to go thru a 1×1” 1/8” thick angle iron. I drilled the holes to match approximately the edges of the cast iron top. Used flat washers and wing nuts to secure it. Maybe I’ll add lock nuts in the future, but it seems unnecessary.

I laminated two ¾ x 36” poplar strips and attached them to the angle iron the make the bracket extend out 1-1/2” before I put the rail on. This gives me clearance for my fence mechanism.

To those I attached a ¾ x 1-1/2” poplar to make my rail. I placed a flat board on top my table with a ¾” board attached beneath to give me a reference where the top of the rail needs to me. I marked and attached the rail board.

That got me to this point. Next is to make the legs, which will be the easiest part of the process. I did tweak the leg length a little as I felt the plan made them too short. I’m using the adjustable legs from Lowes, Softtouch leveling guides #0078072.
