I have an old style Craftsman Contractor Table Saw and I want to add a folding outfeed table. All of the drawings and plans I can find are for the newer style table saw. Anybody have any ideas or plans for the old style Craftsman saw?

First, my birthday is in July. LOL

Second, The CCTS is a “10 table saw the full size metal wings on legs. The one pictured is made by Grizzly but mine is a Sears Craftsman. It’s not a pedestal saw.

If you have room, why not build one of those cabinets that hold all types of table saw accessories that has a 4 wheel locking set? I’ve seen plans in Shopsmith, Wood and others. Should be easy enough to design too.

How about one like CharlieM’s? It’s a contractor style saw too. The outfeed table folds, doesn’t interfere with the rip fence rail and mounts pretty easily. I’m gonna make one, one of these days.

A fold down table extension for a Craftsman (or any other contractor-style TS) would probably be more annoying than useful because of the motor hanging out of the back of the saw. You either have to deal with a partial fold-down, or leave part of the table open so it will clear the motor when folded down – and leave a hole where you need it most.

If it were me, I think that I would do something in a fold up table and legs assembly that could be easily attached (or removed) to the back rail of the fence. Attach it when you need it and remove it when you’re finished.
