Topic tags/keywords: outfeed table granite

I got that WONDERFUL granite top table saw from good ‘ole Home Depot. I waited unitl the price came down to $500. I followed PurpLev’s assembly instructions (thankfully) and it turned out great. The saw passes the nickel test. I made a low-profile riving knife out of .9 aluminum, and some zero clearance inserts.

Now I want to rig up an outfeed table. Do any of you LumberJocks have any suggestions?

Hi Worth. Congrats on the purchase of the saw and good luck with it. You don’t mention whether you have space constraints or not (Don’t we all?) but if so, you might be interested in a fold down outfeed table. Here’s my version “outfeed table” which is also the one TimGates made “table” If neither of these fit the bill, you can do a search on “outfeed table” on this site and there are many of them. Good luck.

Pardon me Worth and Lenny. I do not mean to intercept (sounds like airborne combat term…LOL) this forum. I have same intention to build an outfeed top/table. I think Lenny’s and Tim Gates’s version is so well designed and will work.
However, I may one day re-sell my Table Saw. So my main concern is those holes on the body of the cabinet. Would you think the person who wants to buy it might consider it as a defect and request price deduction. Alternatively, is there a way to make the support without drilling the TS cabinet body?

I have the same saw and I just made a rolling cabinet/table that serves as both an outfeed and assembly table….Not nearly as snazzy as the ones Lenny posted but it is on casters so I can move it about as needed.

I just purchased one of these saws myself. Quite a deal. I’m in the process of building one of the outfeed tables like was mentioned by Lenny in his post. Had to order some angle aluminum as my saws rear angle iron wasn’t quite appropriate for the situation. I’ll post some pics when I get it up and running.

I also built one like Lenny did. Similar but not exact. I have a project on it with the link to the site where they show you plans, etc.

Good luck!

I built an outfeed table couple of months ago. It’s not as nice as the others have, but it works. It’s made with the scrap material I had lying around. It folds down completely. It doesn’t have slots for the miter gauge.

I don’t think it would matter. If you left the outfeed table on the saw, it might help you sell it.

Woodworn, Does your saw have holes already drilled on the sides of the table wings? If so you can attach your outfeed table here. That is what I did on my old Ridgid. Rand

Yes it does have threaded holes on the sides (actually on the frames of the cabinet) and located about 8” or so from the table bed (table top).
