I’ve been throwing around the idea of building a right side extension table for my 80’s era Cman contractors saw. I know there are many decent plans and ready made packages already on the market. But for some reason I really like the though of having a full cast iron top. So my idea would be to either find 2 good used Cman extension wings (webbed ones) or to get 3 of the new SawStop brand ones (non-webbed) and put the 3 SawStop ones to the right and have the 2 webbed Cman wings I already own on the left. I realize I would have to support the right side with some type of angle iron or well built wood legs and base. I know this set up would be atleast 100 more than a reg extension table, but for some reason the idea in my head seems really awesome.
So I guess my questions are what do you guys think of the idea? Any possible advantages or pitfalls I should consider? Have any fellow LJocks tried or have any experience at building such a product?
Just for reference the SawStop extension cost 100 a piece if bought in 1’s and around 80 if bought in multiples.
