Outfeed table, folding

After I saw the outfeed table eakin built, I realized that I’ve never seen a picture of an outfeed table like this one since I built it a few years ago. It’s not my design, but it is hands-down the best fixture in my shop. It gives me a full 48” table extension and folds down so I can roll the saw against the wall (all my floor tools are on wheels). I later replaced the factory side table with a shop-built router table. The saw’s a Steel City. Oh, yeah—it’s made of mdf and plywood with about 6 coats of oil poly. Not pretty, but effective.

nice design this is a winner it might make a top 3 and would for sure if it was black on top and part of a brand new saw stop

It is well made and I am sure that it’s very functional and saves space around the shop. Way to go!

Nice, also like how your router fence has the high fence on the other side, I’ll have to copy that for sure :)

The router fence is also one of my favorite fixtures. It started out as a tall fence that slips over the existing fence, then I realized I can use it in this configuration and have dust collection for the router. See the 2-1/2” hose coming in the rear of the fence? Works great

What would happen if you didn’t install the diagonal bracing were they in the original design or were they added because it sagged

dude, I just saw your question. The gussets are located where the table hinges to fold down. They hold up all the weight of the table when it’s folded down. They are necessary, and were built with the table.
