Hello, I am drawing out plans now for a workbench. Space is limited and I move often enough so I am planning a smaller table but with extending top. I have looked at table hardware and it seems alright though a bit pricey. I am thinking of using 3/4” metal pipe into bored out 1×1. But not really sure how solid it would be. anyone have any previous expeirience?

How about these fold down shelf brackets from Rockler. They are a bit pricey, but work pretty well.

Check out my mobile table saw blog right now. I built a fold down extension table that might help. I am thinking about doing the same thing to my work bench also. Here is the link to the blog http://lumberjocks.com/Peteyb/blog/29944
