dw7461 table saw sliding table

Hello all,

Im fairly new to the game, based out of Frederick MD. Ive been helping a friend put some pieces together for the last few years and have been lucky to have access to a great shop but finally in the position to put my own shop together. I purchased a DW746 on craigslist for a good deal but really would like to add the dw7461 table saw sliding table. Looks like a pretty great add on. Wondering if anyone would recommend this and have any ideas where I could purchase?

Welcome! Not sure about the DW table, but my Ryobi BT3000 & BT3100 saws each have sliding miter tables and they are great additions for a table saw. Much greater accuracy on wide crosscuts. Mine will do stock over 23 inches wide. I assume the DW table will also lock in place when the sliding function is not required.

Have you considered building yourself a sled in the meantime, it may be a while before you find one and with a good sled you may change your mind about wanting one.

Grizzly has a nice one

This sliding table is pretty cool:

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)

Thanks all,
I guess discontinued table saw accessories dont grow on trees. I look into building one or modifying a new model once I get shop projects prioritized? MabY ill luck into another craigslist find in the meantime.
Looking forward to learning from this group
