My TS (Grizzly G0690) is on wheels and must be stored out of the way when not in use. Therefore any outfeed table must be folding and attached to the saw. I have figured out the attachment and folding schemes by using the pre-drilled 5/16" holes in the lower ledge of the fence rear suport and some 4" gate hinges. It'll work fine; it's a small table; 3/4" ply, 36" x 24".
Folding legs are a possibility, though the table at 35" high means the legs are 34.75 and would stick out if folded underneath. On top of that I can't figure out how to make the legs "lock" in the open position.
I'm thinking about a couple of steel braces that go diagonall from the back cabinet of the saw up to the table. Something like this, but not as elaborate.
See the lowermost part of the brace, the part attached to the cabinet? Imagine that piece being a piece of slotted/drilled angle iron. That's where I think I'm headed. Ok, a piece of angle iron mounted to the cabinet....I got that far. I need help with the piece that goes b/t the angle iron and the table...and how to attach to both. I realize that 3/4" ply is not as rigid as steel, so I'd probably need two braces and I'm fine with that.
Or some other ideas b/c I'm sorta stuck.
Thanks in advance.
Griz wants $310+shipping for that table. It's a ripoff, IMO. And not for nothing, but the amount of space b/t the rollers is ridiculous. A smaller piece of stock could fall b/t the rollers and get wedged, resulting in one heck of a kickback or worse. I wish Griz sold a normal, flat outfeed table with a snazzy mounting/folding mechanism...and it wasn't $300+.
