Rockler Table Saw Outfeed Table Needs Help No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I purchased the Rockler Table Saw Outfeed Table & was pleased…. at first. The initial assembley & set-up wasn’t bad & it worked well. But I soon found that if I used the outfeed table for any thing other than an outfeed table, like an assembly table or what ever, it couldn’t take much weight or vibration or the wood screws that hold the outfeed table to the saw would come loose & the top of the table would drop down some & then be slanted downward toward the saw. It became a royal pain to adjust. It wasn’t hard to figure out that I really needed an outfeed table with FOUR legs. So I went back to Rockler & purchased the Heavy Duty Lifting Leveler set. I made a new base cabinet for the outfeed table & installed the Heavy Duty Lifting Levelers on the OUTSIDE of the cabinet so that adjustment would be easy at set-up time or any time in the future. (SEE PHOTO) I just put the two original fold-up leg brackets & levelers on the shelf. The brackets that came with the outfeed table were reused though. The brackets now do a good job of securing the outfeed table to the saw & keeping the miter gauge slots in line when they’re not required to support ANY weight. Rockler should sell an outfeed table kit with the brackets to attach to the saw & a set of four levelers. But they should skip the two folding leg brackets as a four leg or cabinet system works much better.
