My shop is about to be expanded by almost 100 sq ft (yay!) so it will be 16×24 (instead of the current 16×18).
I have my table saw, 14” bandsaw, Dewalt 734 planer, a Grizzly 6” jointer and a benchtop drill press. My question is brought on by my desire to use my bandsaw more and looking at other setups, a lot of guys have outfeed for the bandsaw for resawing and/or ripping. All well and good, but I’m looking for ways to to have outfeed when needed, but also easily broke down and stored flat when you don’t.
When my wife moves all her gardening stuff into the garden shed I built for her, I have to take down a partition wall and I’ll be rearranging the shop so I’m trying to think ahead a little bit in terms of how to best utilize the space and permanent outfeed for everything just takes up a ton of room.
So I’m looking for ideas on what other folks have done to provide outfeed areas that are not permanent. Table saw will probably be the easiest. Band saw and planer have vastly different heights to deal with.
