Default Outfeed extension

I just came across this simple but effective looking out-feed extension.

I need to come up with something for the bandsaw especially when resawing. I was thinking of using a piece of metal "L" like on the table saw picture and attaching with several newly drilled and tapped holes to support the extension and have folding adjustable legs for storage. Looks like that will have to wait until after the surgery....

change the mounted angle from an ''L'' to a ''C''...
use architectural metal instead of structural...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Sounds like something to look at but two things come to mind 1) availability in my area and 2) usually adding the word"architectural" brings the price $$$. Need to see what I can find. Thanks for the suggestion Stick.

Angle iron is cheap. Call around to some local steel fabricators and ask if you can buy their short pieces.

I have seen other posts where people adapt aluminum walkers ($10-15 used) as legs for these outfeed tables.

architectural denotes style.. the one on the left...

Regarding stick's post, you can get U channel at a local hardware store or Lowe's or HD.

The one on the left looks either to be aluminum or galvanized. Either way it would work but I think I would cut the one side lower so the table would "lock" in and be flush with the bandsaw table. I may need to look at my Shopsmith tables and see if I can make a fitting for those to attach. They also have adjustable legs.

they also have it in unequal leg lengths...
and in any flavor of metal you want...
the structural w/ the radii is referenced to as ''C'' channel...
the architectural w/o the radii is referenced to as ''U'' channel...

If only new layers hadn't been added....

The other option is to drill or saw out (hole saw) large ports opposite to your mounting screw holes, so you can reach through with a nut driver or other tool.
