outfeed table

New 1023 SWL Grizzly this summer. Desperately need to build an outfeed table. Had an outfeed on my previous TS and can't believe how much I miss having that at the back of the saw; not to mention I really think it's way too dangerous w/o it. Am searching, looking for different plans to review. Downloaded a plan from Popular Wordworking, over the weekend, folds down and has one leg. Not a bad design, but before I jump in and build this one, would like to see if there are any other designs out there that fit my shop/situation/TS model. If anyone has some suggestions or plans for one that fits the bill, would love to see them.
Thanks!

Simple but effective

Its plain and simple. I stand on it, jump on it and assemble cabinets and furniture on it. I even use my brad nailer and nail stuff to the top of it.
The roll of butcher paper comes from Sam's Club. It will last for a year or so. I draw on it, glue on it and put my lazy susan on it to spray lacquer on it.

Tone B That's one slamming outfeed table. You build things like I do. You should see my wifes dining room table. I can park my 865lb Goldwing on top and work on it. She tells people that if we ever have an earth quake, she's hiding under it.

I built this table for my shop and absolutely love it.
My shop is only 12' X 24' so space is at a premium.

I built one probably similar to the one you downloaded from the website. There is a 12" section that it bolted to my table saw then a drop down section that's about 30" connected to the 12" section with a piano hinge. I support the drop down section when it's up with a 3/4" piece of pipe. The top is 3/4" melmaine edge banded with 2 * 4. Works really well for me. I have a decent sized shop, but space is always at a premium.

I'd post a picture but it really looks like crap. I've sawed through the edges a few times with my circular saw and the top has paint and stain spots. Needless to say, I oftentimes use it as an additional work bench.

Larry.
I like your saw, I have been using the ts3650 at work for the last 8 weeks great saw and good fence also. I like it so much that it could be my next saw.

TS outfeed

thanks guys. These are all great tables, but I'm leaning to Bradnailer's fold down at the end of the saw, as I think it fits my shop better. Tony B's is a great table, but I don't have the room; Bruce B's is great but again, I want something that travels with the saw. I think I just gotta make some changes on Bradnailers to adapt it to my saw and go from there.
Thanks everybody; I'll post a pic when I'm done.

I bought this Delta 50-390 table extension kit for my Delta Contractors saw last year, it swings down or I can remove it without useing any tools. I think Delta has discontinued this part for some unknown reason to me, I think it works great, couldn't ask for better, and I'm glad I found one before they can't be found anymore. I know your saw is a Grizzly cabinet saw, but I think with enough thought into it, I'm sure something similar can be made for yours or other saws.

If you are space cramped, like many of us are... You might want to consider something like the one Pelligrini over at BT3Central built... Pretty basic, but effective...

I tried to register at btccentral.com, but failed the random question five times. I must be thick or something, cause I just don't understand the question.

If only my floor was level enough where my outfeed/work bench worked as nice as i had planned! i need to rethink mine and put them both on one platform.... it sucks because i based all my other bench heights around my table saw so i could stow things away under my benches when not in use! i only have abouttwo inches of play so to the work bench i go !

Hmmm. There are some new items due to the problems with CAPTCHA and spammers...

Can you access the registration issues forum on BT3 Central? http://www.bt3central.com/forumdisplay.php?f=32

Sam Conder or one of those guys can help you out.

BTW, I am NOT trying to plug BT3Central here, it's just my other fave site is all...

outfeed table

OK Bradnailer, we promise not to make fun of your outfeed table, but we'd really like to see it. As far as the BT central Sight, I coulnd't get in either.

OK, here goes, but like I said, it's well used. On the underside of the drop down section, I have a shower curtain bracket that holds the pipe in place and there's a rubber, like a chair leg cover on the bottom of the pipe so it won't slide on the floor. The third picture shows the tool wall in my shop. The rollers for my mitre saw are the same height as the table saw so the table saw supports longer pieces of wood I'm cutting on the mitre saw.

Brad - thanks for sharing - your out feed table is one that goes where your TS goes - one advantage of good planing.

Okay, I finally figured out the question. I truly am dense and thick. I think it is an anti-thick question to keep dumbasses like me out. Fooled them.
