Tablesaw Extension Supports Large Workpieces
When crosscutting wide materials on the tablesaw, you need extra support at the front and side of the saw. My support extension slides right into the end of the fence tubing and can be used or stored in seconds. It is simply a length of aluminum angle lag-bolted to a length of hardwood that’s cut to fit snugly against the top and bottom of the tube. When the extension is in position, the aluminum angle should be the same height as the top of the table. When it’s not in use, I pull out the extension, rotate it 180°, and reinsert it. It is easily accessible yet out of the way at the same time.
