When I don’t want to undo a particular setup on my contractor table saw I temporarily turn to my benchtop table saw. I used to drop it on my workbench but I always felt the lack of the useful outfeed table I’m used to.
I came out with a simple solution that not only provides an efficient outfeed table but also lowers the saw to a more comfortable working height.
As shown, I screwed a support/locating block on each leg of my shop cart and I built a front protruding support to drop the benchtop saw on. Since I leveled the benchtop saw top even with the cart work surface, it’s now a pleasure to work with. The bored plywood base attached under the saw funnels the dust in a cardboard box.
Only four blocks and four 4” wide OSB strips were required for this upgrade.
Also note that I added some weight on the lower cart shelf at the opposite end to compensate for the saw weight.
Sooner or later I will add an upper block on either back sides so I won’t have to use C-clamps to secure the rig, as shown.
Thanks for looking.
