This is after removing the whole rail assembly from the cast iron wings and drilling new holes into the angle iron. I decided to drill new holes instead of moving the square tubing 10” to the right. This way I do not have to make any extenders on the rails.

This shows the two places I need to grind out for the miter slots.

Close up after it has been grind out.

Here is the back of the rail with new holes drilled and the miter slot ground out.

What the saw looks like after front/back rails has been moved.

Hinges and legs from my folding outfeed table.

So conclusion is that I decided to move the whole rail with tubing attached about 10” to the right and not have to build any rail extenders. By doing this I had to drill a few holes which was easy, grind away clearance for the miter slots (x4) which took about 5 minutes per each one.

I have about a 36- 36.25 ripping capacity now instead of 26”.

I have tested and made sure everything was still tuned properly and I believe the outcome was very successful. If you had another person to help you with holding the rails while drilling, and attaching it would be much easier and go faster.
