I got one of the lucky Ridgid R4512s. But I still suffer from having a very small work space about 12×14 in the corner of my basement. The door way is about 52 inches so to rip sheet goods I feed it that way.
I wanted to make my table saw footprint more useful. So I did what most seem to have done. I added a router table out of melamine laminated board, used a rockler pro plate and attached my Bosch 1617 there. I also built out the fence so that I would have storage for tools to use the router. The fence is also designed so that the front two boards can be adjusted and disposed of when they get beaten up too much.
For the outfeed table I used the same melamine and wrapped it in simple pine. I used the sliding support method, I was dubious about its construction at first but love it already. All this and the only holes I had to drill in the table saw were to mount the bottom brace for the outfeed table. Everything else made use of the existing t-track. Let me know what you think.
Thanks for looking
