I was able to finally get a new table saw this spring, a Rigid r4512 and am very pleased. I installed my Biesemeyer fence instead of the factory one it came with. This gave me a nice steel angle that I could use to hang a folding out feed table on.

It is the Rockler plan (link), I just adjusted the dimensions to fit the wood I had. The table is a laminate of ¾” light ply (a very light colored thin ply plywood from Australia) and a ½” and ¼” MDF. The top is a solid 1/16” plastic that is a utility laminate (and is very slick). Most of the other wood is tight grain Douglas Fir cut out of reject grade 5/4” T&G flooring from our local bargain wood outlet and the support arm sliding dovetail is made of ¾” Baltic Birch with Fir banding. The bottom stop bracket is 1×2 x ?” aluminum. I spent $3.00 on wood, everything else I had as scrap.

My shop is very small so having a folding table is a requirement and this works great. Next table saw upgrade is a Bench Dog cast iron router table.

Thanks for looking.

Nice. I have a R4512 too, and my outfeed table isn’t nearly as elegant a solution as yours. When I get around to building a new one, I’ll have to take inspiration from this.

Have your say...
