wahoo…I currently have a tracksaw. Does great for it’s intended purposes of breaking down sheet goods, but still need precision repeatable cabinet saw cuts for various projects.
splinter..woody…my only concern about fold down outfeed tables is that I can not have storage underneath as I could with a static/mobile table. To me, anything under the fold down is square footage lost. I felt the same when I had my miter saw 4’ infeed/outfeed tables. Granted, I could easily move the miter saw station around. Not so easy with cabinet saw.
And I need a new home for air compressor, reel hoses, finishing supplies. Or clamp storage (I have parallel clamp storage but not F-Clamp storage…which are actually just resting on above 8’ 2×4 :)
Maybe, for my situation, an outfeed mobile assembly table works but not for other’s. I need multi-function/storage and this would fit the bill.
Yet, when not in use, a fold down would be out of the way freeing up square footage for …. something. I just can not fathom what that something could be that wouldn’t be a nuisance to move around.
I have built mobile stations/table in the past. Great for short term. All are gone now. This is my fear of a mobile outfeed assembly table.
Maybe I’ll just flip a coin!
