I have a little shop and have to move my equipment in and out of the work area a lot. I needed an outfeed table on my table saw but it had to be collapsable for storing the saw against the wall. This is what I came up with:
I mounted the pivots on the back rail of the saw and made an adjustable support the attaches to the bottom of the saw but splits in half for storage. I made a round support and staggered the cut and hold it together by sliding a piece of PVC pipe over the joint. It is quick to put up and take down and keeps the wood supported where it used to drop off the back of the saw. Also I can open the back window and shove long pieces out the window onto a support outside( weather permitting)
