I upgraded My outfeed extension. My first one was too clumbsy to put on/take off. While surfing the inter web for ideas I came across April Wilkerson’s youtube channel and she has the exact same model Saw Stop that I do and she made this drop down extension. It consists of a block of select and standard pine glued together and mounted to the back rail of the table saw with lag screws. The table is made from one sheet of construction grade plywood and one sheet of birch plywood, both 3/4. I used walnut I had for the edging. I used the legs off my old extension table and mounted them using folding table leg hardware. All I have left to do is cut the mitre slots in the table. It extends out a full 40” from the back of the saw when extended and only 11” when the table is dropped down. It is way more solid than I expected. I could probably stand on mine like she did in her video but I’m probably 125lbs heavier than she is so I won’t.

Cool project. I like what you did to improve her design, miter slots continuing into your table and the addition of your walnut edging makes it look classy.

Interesting, What did you do to the cast iron top? Is it some kind of protective coating?

WhereDidIPutThat – I did nothing to the cast iron top. That’s just how it looks in the photo.

I semi followed April Wilkerson’s video for my new outfeed table. I needed a “narrow” block attached to the back L rail. My block extends only 1.50” past the L rail. My hinge bolt is only .75” from block edge. There is a .50” gap between the block and the outfeed table. This forced me to round off the lower outer edge of the block over 1.10” to swing passed the block to drop down. I need to store my SawStop tight against the garage back wall to get my car in. I used a kinda torsion construction over a .75 phenolic covered 2’X4’ plywood. Because of concern over the heavy total weight, I didn’t use a second full sheet under the phenolic sheet.

I will attach photos later. My table gives a added twist for some of us room challenged in our garage shops.

This is a really nice out feed table for a Sawstop. You have really done a nice job on it and it’s a good generous size.
