Quick Compact Outfeed Table for DeWalt Portable Saw
« on: July 26, 2018, 06:20 PM »
Here is a quick assembly, compact outfeed table for a DeWalt jobsite saw.  I took inspiration from a few others that I came across on the internet and built mine to store in a small space and simply lift on and off the saw.  One of the challenges is how to mount it due to the rear track for the rack and pinion fence.  It is actually quite simple, however since it mounts on and off a welded tube assembly, I built this one in place on the saw as I wanted to assure the extension was parallel to the saw table. 

The sides are made from 15mm Baltic Birch and the top is made from awful home center nominal 3/4" birch face ply.  I also used a trick I learned from David Stanton's videos and that was to sand the top to 220 grit and then use paste wax and power buff with a ROS and steel wool.  Slick surface and easy to maintain.

Another FOG member asked about it so here it is......



I can assemble this more than one way, hence the orientation arrows below   haha.










The rear clearance is just enough to allow the rear fence mount to slide without contacting the outfeed table.  This gap has never been a problem in practice.


I had to use something Festool for this project  [big grin]

That's nice - My son and son-in-law have that saw and I have one on my farm.  They are really nice saws in a compact footprint.

Can you share the dimensions of the extension wing?  Might have to make one, two, or three!

@neilc  I'll take some measurements tomorrow.  I normally always do a basic design in Sketchup, but didn't this time. I figured that the welded tubular design wouldn't be precise enough  from saw to saw, so I just winged it.  I used a straightedge clamped to the table surface as a datum and referenced from that as I went.  I'll update after I can get some useful numbers
