Hello All,

This is my first post asking for help. I have been looking at the site since November and was finally able to join the site. I am very impressed with all the information that you have on here and look forward to learning and sharing.

I am trying to build an outfeed table for my Craftsman table saw (21828). It is nice having a new saw but like my old table top saw the need for the outfeed is huge.

I have started by cutting a 4’X4’ table out of Melamine and 3/4” maple frame, but I am having a hard time determining how to attach it to the table. The rails on the front and back of the saw have T-Track on all sides. The saw came with attachments for a router fence which work great for attaching to the back rail. I have slid the router fence pieced on the bottom side of the back rail and considered attaching the table to the back rail by connecting to the attached router fence. I hope this makes since.

Anyway, I have attached some pics of the saw and table and would love to hear your ideas of ways to do this.
Thanks for the help

When I built my outfeed table for my Craftsman saw, I was following some plans that used some parts from Rockler

Something like this,, but not exactly. I don’t see what I used on their site. It was 10 years ago. Essentially one part of a metal bracket bolts on to the rail and the other to the table. One slips into the other.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Thanks for the idea. I didn’t think about that. I will look and see what I can find.

Have your say...
