Hi Phil, I am also new to LumberJocks, and this will be my first real contribution to the forum!

To begin with Rieferman’s comment about not using the outfeed table as a work surface is sound advice – but hard to follow! I use a large sled on my saw, and have pushed stuff off the outfeed table (when folded down) because I didn’t see it sitting behind the sled. :( More to the point – build yourself an outfeed table – you will wonder why you waited so long to build one!

Here’s the one I made for my PowerMatic 64A contractors table saw. As you can see, the table folds down. My shop was fairly big when I made this table – the table was up all the time. It’s a good thing I made a folding table, as we have moved and my current shop is a small 2-car garage; the table is down most of the time!

Here’s a link to the Photo Album with 3 pages of photos; click the small photo to enlarge, and look at the caption for details.
