I have a garage shop that I have to share with the cars. All my tools need to be mobile and I wanted an outfeed table that was part of my mobile table saw. This isn’t totally finished as it needs a hinged extension but even the extra few inches that it is right now is incredibly helpful and the safety factor has risen tremendously because of it.
I’ve tried to show how I mounted it. I figure if anyone is interested in this, how I attached it is the only real point of interest. The obvious parts: two layers of 3/4 play banded with some oak prefinished hardwood flooring scraps. The hardware is all big box store parts. T nuts bolts, angle iron, and a steel plate. Where ever I drilled a hole in my saw, cast iron or otherwise, I went ahead and tapped the hole. Why you ask? I don’t know. I my mind it makes the assembly that much more solid. Its only about 14 inches or so added to the table but its a huge impact when finishing a cut and I don’t have to worry about dropping the work piece.
PS I just noticed that you can see my changes to the dust collection on the saw also. Having to reach in under the table to attached the shop vac hose was a pain. So I spray glued a short section of shop vac hose into the dust shroud that surrounds the blade and ran that to a fitting that sticks out the side. It is so much easier to access now.
