I got me a great deal on a delta ts 350 table saw, free! but the stand it came with is from something else. Sure, it holds it up but ...... what I'd like is to have a better fitting and better moving stand, one where I can add the dust collection port to. I've been looking around but just hadn't seen anything. I could go cheap and get the universal harbor freight but that looks way to flimsy. I want to put wheels on it and saw a number of good ideas on youtube ....... or do I just make a mdf box for it? or a 2x4 version of it? or ....... you can see I'm searching for ideas ....... and it's a heavy thing that delta .....

thanks for that link! It gives me ideas ....


One of my jobs is ripping 23/32" (or 3/4) birch ply 4x8 sheets .....
On my list is a track saw but ...... but I got to make do until then so ....

I have to create 8 foot long 2" strips, out of a whole sheet ....
my plan was to use a straight edge and circular saw to cut it to 2'
then to put it on the table saw and make the 2" strips .......

with that in mind ........ could I cut a whole sheet in half on the ts?
and what about extensions to hold it up?
I've never done this, and only seen it done on youtube once .....
and I'm new at all of this !

yes, with both an infeed and an outfeed table. i've done it many times.

and what about extensions to hold it up?

it would also help to use an extension on the fence (1x hardwood would be ok) and make sure not to use roller stands in attampting this. they don't provide the same full surface support that infeed and outfeed tables do.

You need to support the plywood and you need a fence which can handle the width.

Ripping "free hand" without a fence is a good way to have an accident.

This thread is a home made fence. It is very important to have a method to ensure the fence is parallel to the blade.

I feel it is cumbersome for me to manhandle a full sheet of plywood by myself.

I would rip this into sections more easily managed and then do the final 2in rips on my table saw.

My fence has 36in capacity to the right, but I spend a lot of time on big sheets with temporary infeed supports. I have an outfeed extension table.
