Tablesaw crosscut sled support extension....

A while back I made a mid size crosscut sled that is my most used however I found I constantly needed just a little more capacity and when I pulled it back too far it would fall off of the table due to the weight of the fence so I made this little fixture to support it. I used 19mm Baltic Birch with a rounded over strip of UHMW plastic screwed to the top and added some set screws above the slots to easily bring it flush to the saw top as well as make it quick to re position after removing when needing to use the rip fence on the other side of the blade. Also, I had a miter gauge extension table on my Biesemeyer that was always in the way and wouldn't fit on the Unifence anyway so I am going to make a new one of those that will mount to the same bracket making it quick/easy to swap when needed.

Marv, you do great work!

All your jigs and fixtures are top grade. I remembered seeing a cast iron front table extension in a search a while back. Unfortunately they are no longer available, so your idea is great. There's the photo I found:

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 Bill! I had an opportunity to buy one of those Delta miter gauge extension tables on eBay when I had the Unifence on my old saw and regretfully passed it up but if I ever find one again I'll definitely grab it!
