As part of getting my new, smaller garage shop under control, I decided to redo my outfeed table and get rid of a clamping table that also acted as an additional outfeed table.
The original idea came from here:
I figured I would post it here as I know this saw is popular for those that haven’t pulled the trigger on a big cabinet saw.
The portion fixed to the TS is about 14” and the part that bends on a piano hinge is around 36.5”. Part of it is double layer with plywood as the kreg clamps are 3/4” thick and I really didn’t want to lose the functionality of a clamping table despite my smaller garage. They just pop out of the sides of the portion that bends. The legs fold on door hinges and used magnets to hold the legs up when not in use, but will be adding some cabinet clips as the magnets don’t seem to be strong enough!
I still have the ability to turn the blade to 45 degrees, which was not a high priority for me. I had to shift the motor all the way to the right and still barely made it. I had to cut one of the bolts for the fixed portion of the outfeed table to do so. The guy in the above link wedged his supports between one wing and his router table but I did not have any good ideas on how to pull that off.
I’m aware that I do not have any miter slots either! I may add them, but I have a lot of projects and almost never use my miter gauge as I have my SCMS for crosscuts and have no sled. My saw also makes a mess without the DC from above and I like using the blade guards, paws and riving blade.
