I installed the metal tables that Jet sells… They work well for pieces up to about 2 feet long. (Jet 98-1601)
$115 on amazon.com.

I have been contemplating how to construct some infeed/outfeed tables that are perfectly flat and have adjustable legs so that they can be leveled perfectly with various machines. I’d like for them to be collapsible so that I can store them on the wall when not in use. I’d like to be able to use them on the drum sander, the jointer and the planer. I am leaning toward making a tosrion box to with some adjustable legs that fold up underneath. The torsion box is simple, but the legs need to be sturdy, provide a stable platform, and have significant height adjustment as well as hold that fine adjustment while in use. I haven’t figure this part out yet.

What about making a table with an area to set the sander or planer in.Then just have an adjustable base on the machine. Then the legs on the table don’t need to so precise. If there is a difference in bed heights on the machines, you could have hardboard shims drilled for each and still be able to bolt then in place on the table. This will work with any of the drum sanders and planners that have the adjustments for the drum or knives.
This won’t work with the Grizzly because the bed is what adjusts. Rand
