Finished this outfeed table for my Ridgid R4512 tablesaw based on ideas from other projects and designs from lumberjacks postings. I designed the support knee brace to come off the rear axle of the casters so it is always set at the right height regardless of the shop floor. No leveling of support legs required. I used oak plywood for the 24” x 48” table and framed it in oak trim. The mounting to the saw is with an angle iron attachment to the bottom T-slot on the tablesaws back fence rail guide. I set the spacing so the rip fence movement is not impeded. There is just enough movement in the angle iron slotted holes for fine height adjustment of the outfeed table to match the tablesaw’s cast iron top. I used a long piano hinge to allow the outfeed table to swing down and out of the way when not needed. I store the support brace separately in the corner of my shop. A coating of paste wax is the only finish I used. The outtable is proving to be plenty sturdy and I can move the tablesaw around when needed without lowering the table or needing to readjust the support brace.
