Wow, my very first post to LJs back from the dead :)

Yes, I used standard door hinges. You can see here where I had to drill two new holes in the hinges to mount them to the rear fence rail.

Here’s another shot of the hinged leg. I’ve over-exposed the pic a bit so you can see where I mounted a short piece of angle iron to the TS base to act as a ledge for the bottom of the leg to rest in. The tricky part was figuring out the lengths of the leg segments and the angle of the cuts for the leg hinge, so that the outfeed table sat level.

The funny thing is, I almost never use the outfeed table anymore, as I built a mobile assembly table that I use for that task. Still, when the assembly table is occupied, I can always roll it out of the way and use the folding outfeed table. It’s surprisingly strong.

Good times!
