This table saw runout table is a two-part table. Everything is constructed withYP 1×4 framework, 3/4 plywood
runners for the melamine tops. All frames and runners are gluded, screwed or nailed to maintain ridgid top. The first FIXED table is attached to the back rail of the tablesaw fence slide, and is 12 inches wide x 48” including the framework. The three tops can be popped out for replacement or cleaning. The second table is a fold-down table with the tops screwed to the framework runners. The size of each section is 15.7×30 inches including frames totaling 48 ” wide. The top is hinged on a 48” piano hinge with the legs moving on a 3/8” carriage bolt. Fixed table has miter gauge slots cut into the fixed top, the folddown table has no slots as the miter gauge would be past blade at this point.

Clever idea making the melamine removable. Don’t have replace the whole top if the melamine gets wore out or damaged. How do you like that Delta portable dust collector?

The Delta dust collector works just fine on this saw set up. The saw is a ShopFox 3HP and it get the dust moving pretty good before the portable collectors get to it. My 2 stage system was to far away to use on this saw so this works just fine. I bought a wireless remote control extension cord unit for this set up at HD. The remote is hanging on the fence lockdown so its no problem to turn it off or on. Very cheap solution for not having to go around saw to turn it off!
