Pivoting outfeed table

Having a roller stand in the shop is almost like having another person around to help you work with long and cumbersome material, but roller stands also have a frustrating flaw: If the material is warped or droopy, you'll probably knock over the stand before you get help from it. The tilting plywood platform, shown at right, virtually eliminates this problem.

To use it with your tablesaw, set the level platform height to match your tablesaw top, and then tilt the platform toward the saw. When you feed the board through, it catches the platform and levels it out, and the roller stand will remain standing.

This tip saved the existence of a flimsy roller-top outfeed support. I almost lost a workpiece and a finger the last time I knocked it over while ripping. I'll try this now, will follow up.

It's tips like this that demonstrate that our fellow craftsmen are always thinking and that one great idea often begets another. Thanks J.D. and Ken

The tilting table is great. If you build the fastening feature off center, the table top will automatically tilt. Ken South Bend, IN.
