I recently came across a deal on a Grizzly G7209 Table Saw that I couldnt pass up. It is a huge improvment over the old Craftsman Contractor saw that I had. Even with its 38”x48” table top, it definately needs an outfeed table.
The outfeed table needs to fold down for space savings when not in use. I am considering using peg board for the top and make it a dual purpose outfeed table/downdraft table. I am thinking of making it 29” deep and 72” wide, with two shallow (4” deep) hopper type bases, each 29”x36”. this would allow me to keep the hopper depth shallow and provide flexibility on the size needed when sanding. I created a sketch of what I was thinking and attached it.
I worry about vibration from sanding, while not overly harsh, rattling the table saw apart over time. Am I being overly concerned? After many years I finally have what I feel is a nice saw, I dont want to mess it up in anyway. LOL
I look forward to hearing back from your experence/expertise.
