I recently picked up a G1023 table saw, mounted my Bosch router table in the extension wing, and put it on a Shop Fox mobile base - http://www.grizzly.com/products/Universal-Mobile-Base/D3757. Here are some pictures:

I want to add a folding outfeed table using these brackets, which I ordered back when I still had my R4512: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006LA2G0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. My old saw was mounted on a rolling platform with a custom melamine base, which would have let me build a frame behind the saw to mount the brackets connected to the base rather than the saw, but with my new setup that won't be possible. So my question is, what would be the best/easiest way to mount those folding brackets so they can support a modest outfeed table? Is there any way to do it that doesn't involve drilling new holes in the saw or the rear fence rail?

I don't know if it can be done without drilling new holes somewhere, so my first thought was that I could drill through the bottom of the fence rail and run vertical wooden struts from the fence down to the base. The base is two layers of 3/4" plywood, so I could screw them to the fence top-down, and then through the back side of the struts into the side of the base. (In order to space the struts far enough apart, I'd probably drill through the metal corner parts of the mobile base and then screw the struts into the plywood behind them.) Then, I could screw a sheet of 1/2" plywood to the struts as a backer board to mount the folding brackets. Does that seem reasonable/strong enough, or is there a better way to do this?

I have the HTC outfeed table and this is how it is installed. I did have to drill new holes into the cabinet and a little adjusting, It is great except you have to be carefull with pusing to far with a miter guage. Hope this helps….

I was looking at that same table. I already have the brackets and the skeleton of a shop-made table (which I'll route miter slots in), so I opted to save the money. Maybe I should just drill through the cabinet so I can bolt wooden struts or a sheet of plywood directly to the cabinet back, and then screw my folding brackets to the wood.
