I built a very simple outfeed table that I mounted to the back rail of my new SawStop Contractor saw. Fortunately, there were three 7/16 holes in the back rail and I was able to just attach to that. There were also 7/16 holes in the legs that I used to attach the braces. A simple little project that really adds comfort and safety to the saw. 3/4 inch poplar plywood with a bolster along the front edge and two bolsters spanning the T-slot relief dados. It is completely self supporting and integrated on to the saw so always level to the top. It removes in a few seconds and folds down for storage if necessary. I don’t think I will be taking it off much though. A thoroughly useful addition.

The mobile base is also shop made from the same 3/4 poplar plywood painted black to match the saw. It was from a heavy duty wheel kit with steel corner brackets where the wheels mount. It is a lot more versatile than the factory mobile base I think because it makes a good storage spot for accessories.

I am really happy I went with the premium fence upgrade for a whopping $30. If I hadn’t it would have been a lot more difficult to mount the outfeed table. It is a lot better than the one that normally comes with the contractor model and it fit really well. Despite the Woodcraft manager telling me it would not fit all I had to do was swap a couple of the bolts around. No problem though because there were enough mounting bolts, they turned out to be long enough and all the main mounting holes lined up perfectly. All I had to do was supply a couple of metric nuts and drill four holes in the secondary extension table mounting bracket that came with the fence. Apparently the wings on the Contractor Model are slightly longer than the cabinet saw. That extension was a real unexpected bargain. The premium fence comes with a 12 inch extension table on the right side that really gives a nice surface.

Now commence making stuff!

That my kind of outfeed table. Well done.

I did similar when I got my first bosch 4100 contractor saw and moved it to the sawstop cabinet saw my wife bought for me.

Exactly what I am planning to do with my Sawstop CNS!

Can you tell me where you got the base pieces? Can you raise it, move it, then lower back down for stable cutting?

Have your say...
