I upgraded My outfeed extension. My first one http://lumberjocks.com/projects/100808 was too clumbsy to put on/take off. While surfing the inter web for ideas I came across April Wilkerson’s youtube channel and she has the exact same model Saw Stop that I do and she made this drop down extension. It consists of a block of select and standard pine glued together and mounted to the back rail of the table saw with lag screws. The table is made from one sheet of construction grade plywood and one sheet of birch plywood, both 3/4. I used walnut I had for the edging. I used the legs off my old extension table and mounted them using folding table leg hardware. All I have left to do is cut the mitre slots in the table. It extends out a full 40” from the back of the saw when extended and only 11” when the table is dropped down. It is way more solid than I expected. I could probably stand on mine like she did in her video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g66UhNaxivo&t=296s but I’m probably 125lbs heavier than she is so I won’t.
