Right-height outfeed support

Here's a rock-solid solution to stock support, sent in by WOODŽ magazine reader John Lanigan, of Concord, New Hampshire. Mount it to a workbench, as shown, or add legs for a stand-alone support. Easy height adjustability makes it a versatile addition to your shop.

We used 3/4" MDF for most of the construction and laminated two pieces of 3/4"-thick stock to form the movable post (F). The beveled support pad (H) allows stock to move over it with ease.

When assembling the unit, note that only the bottom end of the sleeve front (B) is screwed in place, allowing the top of B to flex. This enables you to lock the post (F) in place in the sleeve assembly (A/B) using a four-arm knob, pressure block (C), and a steel mending brace.

Joe, the plan is free, simply download the illustration and print it off. Repeat for the Bill of Materials.

I use the snipping tool to copy the images and paste them into a Word document, the text is an easy copy/paste. I then have full control of the size and can save the plans to my hard drive for printing later if I wish.

You can do the same thing with a roller stand.

try downloading the pdf file. I can see it perfectly clear there and if you don't want it just close it. It isn't saved to your computer.
