Lauchle Lauchle writes: Dear Howard,

I've used a bench for my outfeed table in all of my shops (this is the 5th, I think). The secret is to adjust it's height to be just a fraction of an inch (about 1/8) lower than the table saw height. The other thing you must do is extend the mitre guage slots into the outfeed table so that the guage can travel its full distance. Thanks for your comment.
