    Out Feed Table ideas

    In the next few months, I want to make an outfeed table for my Ridgid tablesaw.

    I am looking for some suggestions as how to do it. I've seen a few pictures on line, but I want to pick all of your minds before I jump into it.

    There is one thing that is a must for this table. It has to fold down when not in use. I don't have the biggest shop in the world, so I want to be able to fold it down and out of the way most of the time.

    I guess my biggest issue is how I am going to mount it to the table.

    Any suggestions and pictures are definitely solicited.

    Wish I could help, John, but I have a freestanding one behind my cabinet say. I always wanted to make a folding outfeed table for my contractor saw but never got around to it. Have you considered a movable outfeed that would double as an assembly table? You only need a little over 3 feet beyond the saw to keep an 8 footer from tipping so a 3'x4' table would do the trick and be able to double as storage and assembly.

    It's not a mistake, it's an opportunity for design change.

    Hey Babb. My assembly table was my out feed table for my old saw. The Ridgid is about 2 inches taller. Plus I usually have a ton of crap on my assembly table at any given time.

    Did you forget about the outfeed table rrmccabe built?I think that is a great set up and I'm just waiting to upgrade my saw (to the ridged r4512) and give it a try.Every time I'm ready to upgrade something else takes the money.Any issues with the saw yet?

    Grant I love mine.

    After building mine a few months ago (see here) I wouldn't ever go without an outfeed table.

    Glad it's working out for you Rich.My saw is not worth adding to but I have a mobile bench that's just slightly lower than the saw if I need it.As soon as I get a new saw That outfeed or something very close to it will be top of the list.Thanks again for sharing.

    Crazy -- I'm working on one right now too for my DeWalt 745. I guess it's more of a rolling cabinet with a top that the saw will bolt down to. It will have hinged infeed supports on the left and right that swing up into place when needed and an outfeed support that does the same. Underneath the saw will be two drawers, the top one just to catch all of the dust that misses the collection port, and another for push sticks and featherboards. A 10" high cabinet on the bottom will hold four bags of concrete mix for weight.

    If the hinged panels and braces work as well for infeed/outfeed support as they do right now in my head, I'll send you some pics...

    I built a out feed table that folds down for my saw a while back and I love it. the only thing I would change on mine is I would us angle iron to mount it to the saw instead of wood. Laney made a nice one for his table saw you might take a look at his as well.
