I have a little shop and have to move my equipment in and out of the work area a lot. I needed an outfeed table on my table saw but it had to be collapsable for storing the saw against the wall. This is what I came up with:
I mounted the pivots on the back rail of the saw and made an adjustable support the attaches to the bottom of the saw but splits in half for storage. I made a round support and staggered the cut and hold it together by sliding a piece of PVC pipe over the joint. It is quick to put up and take down and keeps the wood supported where it used to drop off the back of the saw. Also I can open the back window and shove long pieces out the window onto a support outside( weather permitting)

Outfeed tables are great – I think they’re essential safety equipment for a table saw, and I don’t know how I ever worked without mine. Good to see more ingenuity at work!

Nice, I hadn’t really thought about making one, but now looking at your zazzy design i might have to do my own.

I like it!

I have been needing to build one of these and like the pvc joint locking idea you used.

I’ve been meaning to make an outfeed table for my BT3100 but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Also want to get rid of the SMT and router table and make a more permanent fix to the tablesaw top but been too busy to get to it. Some day….some day.

Thanks for reminding me again Jim…good job!

That looks like a good idea. The table is a little short, so it helps with that. I have the BT3000, amd I love it. Very nice table saw for the lighter stuff. I don’t use mine for 4 X 4’s . Nice build!

Hey Jim,

Great idea! I have a BT3000 and I was thinking about doing something like this.

-- Wow, that was easy. Just follow the directions and use some common sense.
