I posted earlier on making an out feed table for a table saw and have decided on making a table about 5’ x 5’. The table is going to be free standing and will be able to be moved around by means of a pallet jack. The table is going to probable have 2’’x 4’’ legs or something similar and a particle board top. Does anyone know where I can purchase some Large adjustable Leg Levelers preferably with an easy way to adjust them and lock them in for height as I will need to level/dial it in to the table saw top once in place.

Thanks Richard

Sounds like you’re going to have mass on your side, so all you need is adjustability, right? The easiest trick is to make your own with tee nuts and machine screws.

I searched “adjustable feet” on Amazon and found this among other stuff.

Rockler has a foot in a pine block for $6.49 the pair. Reviews aren’t too wonderful.

Kindly,

Lee

What you need are cabinet levelers. I use them quite a lot on cabinets, etc. When I built my outfeed table for the table saw, and my saw cabinet for my old saw, I used them on the legs of both. They are great..Just screw them on and use an allen wrench to adjust them up or down. They have a lip that the leg sits in, and 3-4 screws hold them in place….Works good. I bought mine at Woodworkers Supply. Go to www.woodworkers supply.com, and look under cabinet levelers…About $ 9.00 a pair…They should do the trick…...

Lee and Rick both have a couple good suggestions. As Lee mentioned T nuts and a bolt work pretty good, don’t cost much, and you probably have some laying around the shop. I like to use T nuts with carriage bolts because of the bolt shape for leg adjusters in the shop.

I put these on my assembly table, and they work great.

Hey Joe,

That’s exactly the ones I was talking about in my post…..cabinet levelers…..I’ve used them on all my tables, and easy to mount and adjust. I keep some on hand just in case….....

I use scrap wood myself. I figure out what thickness I need, squirt a little glue on it and set the table leg down on it and viola, no more rocking.
