I have a Delta 10" contractors saw with a 52" Excalibur fence. This unit is
on wheels due to garage, er, I mean shop size limitations.
I need to build an outfeed table that is easily removable for this unit.
Keeping in mind that the Excalibur has rails on both the front and the rear
of the table. Has anyone here designed or seen such a thing. Any ideas,
suggestions, recommendations, photos, plans, etc. would be greatly
Take a look at the HTC out feed roller setup made for contractors saws.
IIRC and if it is like the one on my cabinet saw the whole set up attaches
lower down on the saw cabinet and or base/legs. This setup never has to be
removed and folds up and down with no legs. It is a great setup.
Unfortunately HTC does not have web site but some retailers have brochures.
Or a phone call to HTC would probably get you the literature that you would
need to get the idea of what to do to build a similar setup.
Here is mine... it's attached to the saw with 4 wing nuts.
It's huge and can be taken down in about 5 minutes.
and folded down
It's 98" from the front of the saw to the back of the outfeed table.
This outfeed was copied from a short article in Fine Woodworking.
Learned this from a guy who worked in a cabinet shop. Build the outfeed
table slightly lower than the saw table (about 3/8" so you don't have to
worry about a miter slot). That way the material drops slightly as it goes
thru and you can get your thumb under the edge to pick it up easily. It
also precludes all the leveling and alignment problems of a flush outfeed
table. You can just build a table on casters, use it behind the saw as an
outfeed table, and roll it away with the saw when you're done. And it also
doubles as a great assembly table. I made mine out of a Habitat for
Humanity exterior door faced with 1/2" MDF with a standard trestle base.
Works great behind my contractor. Mine is not on casters however since
SWMBO is long gone and no one is trying to park a car in my woodworking

Subject: Outfeed Table for Excalibur Fence
I think I will buld one with a bit of each of the above ideas in it. I can
make it full of drawers to store tools in, have the back fold up for a real
long surface, have it on wheels, and make it 3/8" lower than the TS top.
Another project!!!! Woo-hoo. AND I will get to use my new Freud Biscuit
