Using ideas from many different LJ’s, Youtubers and my own, this is the table saw outfeed I’ve been wanting for several years. I used maple plywood and trim left from a sewing desk build. the last photo shows the holder for the 2 folding supports . The folding supports use 2 large nails to lock them in their open position that slide into place and have a stop to keep them in place while folded (see photo 4).
I used a long level clamped the the saws fence as one side and a board clamped in place (missing in the photo below) to guide a router while extending the saws miter slots.

Rubber bands and eye hooks are used to hold supports in folded position when lowering the table.

Okay, this is a cool design. And a small matter but I love the cylindrical hinge. When making flat faced tables like this you are limited to flat hinges underneath the table. It’s always a weak point and leads to an uneven surface. Your hinge would make this a non-issue I’d think.

How do your supports do for keeping the table surface flat with the saw? do you see it needing adjustment at some point after lots of use?

btw, I’ve got the same saw. I’m liking it a lot.

Thanks for posting. Always nice to see someones design process.

Thanks Daniel. I have already encountered the problem of keeping the table level with saw top (no pun intended). You should be able to see the shim I added to the left side of the support bar in the 6th photo.
Moved from a contractors saw to SawStop in 2012 and have always loved it.

Looks like a winning design socrbert and should work well for a life time.
You may have to replace the rubber bands every 6 months or so because they oxidize
or use something else to hold the supports.

Like the Crafty Lake Guy said. That is a nice saw, now it has a great extension table.

Thanks James, Yeah after replacing bands a few times I’ll likely find a different way to hold the supports.

I’d sure like to have a nice set up like that, and a big shop to put it in!
