Extension table for Grizzly G0715P?

I have contacted Grizzly to ask why the don't sell an extension table for their saw. They advised me they do, but it's for a router mount, which I don't need as I have a Rockler table. The lady was very nice, but said that was my only option.

Does anyone know of an aftermarket table extension made for the saw? My old Craftsman had large lattice work, cast iron extensions that really helped when cross cutting 8 & 10' boards. Or better yet, has anyone created their own and if so, what did you make it out of? I'm fearful MDF will delaminate during the humid summers here in iowa.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

John

Just get the router extension

I have a Bench Dog router extension on the Sawzilla , my 3 tablesaw setup, and it will accept a Jess EM lift. It's just like a regular table extension except it has a rectangular hole for a lift. The Grizzly router extension table is different and has a round hole for the router bit to clear. Just plug the hole with a plastic insert, and if you never add a router, no big deal. It will be a nice quality cast iron extension. :smile3:


The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

How much extension do you need? Most table saws are 27" from front to back. It may only be a matter of drilling a couple holes to fit an extension from a different brand to the Grizzly. I have a Delta Unisaw with two 11" Craftsman extensions mounted to the left side. If you need a full extension on the right you could make it out of MDF and put plastic laminate on all sides. This would protect it from the humidity.

Mine is black melamine with an angle iron framework to keep it from sagging.

Great ideas from both of you. I had not considered melamine due to very same issue you described, and I don't weld, but I do know a bunch that do. The MDF with the laminate is a terrific idea that I should have thought of first, but I'm a senior moment this year. Thank you
