Yeah I have french doors on my shop and a 24×24 patio (roughly) and I drag stuff out on the patio all the time. Like you, I have everything on wheels. Ok, not my workbench, and the table saw stays in the shop, but my sliding miter saw is on one of those wheeled stands and my planer has been known to come out on the patio (lotta noise though), saw horses, circular saw, etc. In fact I have some of those saw horse brackets so I make a quick and dirty cutting table when I have sheet goods as I simply can’t manage a 4×8 sheet by myself safely. Also been known to set sheets on pallets and just get my cut lines lined up so I don’t cut the pallets. Not that I care about the pallets, but pallets are known to have nails! (gasp!) so I just avoid the pallet entirely.

Still…. an outfeed for the bandsaw would be nice and it seems every time I use the planer I come up with something different for outfeed. Kinda whatever I have laying around I cobble together into something that’ll work, but then I have to make a new one next time :)
