Hi everyone,

I’m saving up for a nice craftsman contractor tablesaw and I’m in the process of reorganizing the shop and I’m wondering if anyone has plans for an outfeed table that’s got the following attributes

1. 4×4
2. Deep drawers for blade storage
3. Somewhere to store tablesaw jigs ( ie crosscut)
4: general storage shelves

I’ve looked online and can’t really find something that doesn’t cost a few hundred to make..

I know that my list of needs is slot and trust me I’ve sat in front of sketchup for hours trying to draw one up but I’m having a hard time converting open space to accommodate drawers and shelves

Did you try here?

I’m wanting to build one also, lots of good ideas here to think about…

Are you looking at a new Craftsman table saw? I apologize in advance, but I wouldn’t buy a Craftsman table saw of any type. Craftsman’s heyday has come and gone and Sears is standing on a banana peal. Is there a reason you want a Craftsman over.. say a Bosch, Dewalt, Delta, or even a Grizzly? Some of the Craftsman contractor table saws suffer from the same blade alignment problems as the Ridgid because they are made by the same manufacturer. Just beware of what model Craftsman saw you decide on because of the blade alignment issue.

I’m going to get the Craftsman 21833 because for a couple of reason

1. Solid base
2. Although they are a few reviews where people have experienced alignment issues there are so many that have not
3. Price I can’t afford the other brands of contractor saws and at the $500 price point I can afford that
4. The rip fence looks great
5. I know someone that has one and he had no issues

Fair enough. Hope the Craftsman works out well for you.

10% of lowes cards are online.
Can usually get another 10% off on giftcards.

The Delta table saw at Lowes might be in your price range.

Have your say...
