Topic tags/keywords: question trick tip

I’m going to start building an outfeed table for my Delta 36-725. I need to know the height so It will sit flush with the table saw.

Anyone know how tall the table saw is?

Even if you get the measurements, I’d argue against trying to build it without access to the saw. The measurements might give you the right ballpark, but you’re going want to fabricate it to your particular saw in your particular shop. You could build it so that’s it’s adjustable after the fact, but I still think that leaves room for headaches later on.

I already have the table saw… I’m just at work right now and can’t measure it yet. I figured a lot of people have this saw so maybe someone could take a quick measurement.

Is your outfeed going to be in a permanent location where you’ll never move the table saw or the table?

LOL. i was going to ask why you’re asking someone else for measurements of your saw. I’d wait till you get home to measure your specific setup.

I move it once every 3-4 months when i do a deep cleaning in the garage. I’m going to place some workbench casters with some levelers so i can get it perfectly flush to my saw.

The reason I needed the measurements is because i’m working on a sketchup file… let me know what you guys think!

Looks great. It’s like double of what Matt Cremona did with his. With that much space from the TS, I wouldn’t do completely flush as any minor warping of boards will hit the outfeed table and make it tempting to do something dangerous. I’d level it a little under. I understand the need for the space due to the double locking fence as I had that saw as well.

Thank you thats a huge compliment! Here are some updated pics of how it turned out. I ended up making it a full 3/4” shorter due to concerns of movement and warp. It is is almost perfectly level with the top and i’ll get it spot on with some leveling feet.

So what is the table height of a Delta 36-725?

Lowes shows the height at 31”. That can’t be. My Craftsman POS Series saw is 35” and the specs on HD’s website says the Ridgid R4512 is 37”.

I’m working on some plans for an assembly/outfeed table for the saw I will ultimately get and if the Delta is indeed 31”, I’ll buy the Ridgid just for the height.

Awesome looking table, “J”. I’m planning on using T-tracks in my top as well.

Thank you for the compliment!

The table is definitely 37” I couldn’t find a reliable source either… haha but trust me its 37”

It’s an awesome table saw you won’t be disappointed!

One tip is to get the zero clearance insert…. the factory one is cheap plastic! (Really Delta?) I picked up this one from Delta and it works great.

Geez… I can’t believe you can now get the 36-501 Zero Clearance Throat Plate for $15. I paid $50 for it when I got my 36-725 years ago.

Your table turned out beautifully. I love the color and how the stain brought out the grain of the wood.

So the saw height is actually 37”, eh? Good to know.

I was supposed to get a new saw this past spring but circumstances changed that. I was sold on the Ridgid saw until recently. But I found the depth of cut to be 1/4” more on the Delta and I like how letting the saw down off the wheels doesn’t just drop it on the floor from the balcony. Add to that, all the comments on the fence and I think I’ll be getting the Delta.

Now I just need to reclaim, i.e. clean, the area of the garage I plan to use.

Thank you that’s what i was going for! Turned out nicer than my kitchen cabinets… haha

Yea I was debating between the Ridgid and Delta for probably 3 months. I used to work with a guy that had the ridgid and he swore by it so it was tough to compare. I found a used Delta on CL and went to go see it. It was left outside for months and rusted to hell so i was never gonna by it but I got a good look at it and was convinced.

The Delta is very easy to move around and took only a couple hours to setup. It was dead on square since the fist cut and I’ve had no alignment issues in over a year.

My ONLY complaint is it only rips up to 30.5”.... looking back on it i should have shelled out some more $$ and gotten the Laguna F2 Fusion… 36” rip capacity. -_-
