new pics. hope they help ! 8 or 9 in. strap hinges, 1 1/2 in ss spacers with fender washers on top as to not press spacers into plywood. so far just 2 sided sticky tape between saw & hinges. plan to add bolts & nuts. countersink top of table for carriage bolts. keep them out of the path of mitre slots. all of the hardware is available at h.d. (ss spacers are in the hardware pullout specialty drawers) my fence has a rear catch so i held the assembly aprox 5/8 in away from rear rail to allow for travel. for the back of the table i just cut some old oak face frame material ihad sittin around, & added height adjustable feet. & fabed square blocks as recievers. just pull the legs off, drop the table & hang the legs on the wall. with everything else. lol.

Thanks so much for taking the extra time to repost these. I can’t believe that double sided tape will hold all of that. Pretty impressive. If you care to elaborate- I’d like more information about how you did the legs- what hardware did you use, how do they adjust, etc

Great job. All table saws need this improvement for safty. What makes the top so shinny?

Very nice. I have been thinking about making an outfeed table for my saw but couldn’t figure out how to attatch it with the fence rail in the way. Your idea works. Now I don’t have any excuses not to do one.

the substrate is 3/4” birch ply, & it’s covered with high gloss black laminate. the lam comes covered with a plastic film to prevent scratches, it can be a real pain in the ass to remove. however once you finaly do….. slick & shiny. either laminate the bottom or add cleats because after time the laminate on one side only will make the plywood start to bow.
