That's an awesome job. I like the adjustable height feature. I was looking for a 1 foot extension idea my saw. This could be it. Thanks for sharing

Great build on that outfeed table, Randy. That makes it so much safer and handier using the table saw. the material has a place to land and not fall away from the saw!

The retractable part is especially nice if you are short on space like me!!

Cheers…...........have a great holiday!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jim

Good job Randy and I hope it meets your needs.
I am just in the process of making a 12" out feed table and will post it soon but this gives me something to think about .

Looks great Randy, you'll get lots of use outta that. I really like the simplicity of the fold out, how does it feel? Is there any play or give being that it's only Supported in the middle, or does the large frame give enough support?

Thanks everyone!

Tooch, it's a very rigid system, no play and it's very light since I chose pine and 1/2" ply, it's as light as a feather but even with the proper hinges there is would be no give no matter what type of surface you wanted to go with in reason.

there's no worry on the 3/4 ply gusset with it's tensile strength, the factor would be in the hinges, as long as you have the right hinges it's as strong as an Ox.

If memory serves me right, the gusset is 26" high x 22" at the support.

Randy,

Looks like it's pretty well thought out! The center support appears strong enough for equal loads. Since I'd cosider making a work table, or a router table out of my cabinet saw I'm wondering about uneven loading at the edges away from the saw?

I like your solution for omitting drilling holes in the fence rail.

And the leveling system is pretty elegant. Have you load tested it?

Not yet Tom but I a thought just came to me for a safety feature, I plan on marking where the bolt and the center support meet at and using a Forster bit drilling a slight indent to hold the bolt head fast to keep it from being knocked out.

That triggered another thought but it might be too complicated? a threaded rod( cut head off) and a nut epoxied into the horizontal support in table? of course that could be effected by expansion and contraction which could throw the alignment off? I often over think. LOL!

Blackie, nice job. I like the simplicity and utility of your design. This should work nicely.

Perhaps when I take the wheels off my Bosch TS I could use something like this….Thanks for the great idea Randy

I have also spent countless hours trying to figure out an outfeed table that works for me that is light and doesn't take up a bunch of space when collapsed and I think you have the answer. Great job, hopefully you don't have any patents on your version yet because I plan on copying it!

Jake, I am happy to share it, the whole point of posting it here on LJ's is so that others might find it useful for their application, copy away.

Klaus, you still can add your 12" extension and add a fold down to the end of it using this method.

HI Blackie
Very cool and just moved to the top of shop to-do list. Could you do a closer look at the router table extension too? It appears to be shop made and if its anything like the flip down table, another winner

thanks

George
